Remember the old days of mix tapes & burning playlists onto discs? When Brandon & I were dating in high school, he made me a cd for our first Valentine’s together, and we continued to listen to it for the next ten years or so. I’m not sure where that old cd ended up, but one of the songs on it is on the first Shrek movie, which we watch all the time with the kids. Brings back the sweetest memories! All of that to say, I put together my current Valentine’s playlist, fun to listen to on date night, with the kiddos or if you are hosting a festive brunch or dinner.
I love so many of these songs & will listen to them all year! Such a sucker for a good love song and a romantic comedy. Claire was sick last week & we watched Because I Said So a few times, such a good flick to put you in the Valentine’s Day mood! 🙂
Would love for you to share what songs are your must-haves for Valentine’s Day or what is your wedding/first dance song? I know I’m missing some good ones! Hope you are all having a happy week! XO
Happy Thanksgiving week, friends!
The girls are home from school all week so we have been working on all the really important things like drawing hand-turkeys and making cinnamon butter for friends. This time of year just gets sweeter & sweeter as the girls get a little older, I have never wished to freeze time so much as I do now. I love having Harper’s helping hand, spending time with her in the kitchen or doing art projects is something I have looked forward to my whole life. Eloise is at the most fun age of singing Christmas songs with all the wrong words and learning how to do new things every day. And baby Claire, oh I will forever love the sound of a squishy little diaper butt walking around the house & the way their eyes light up when they see things they love (like the Christmas tree aisle at Target).
We are looking forward to having dad home with us for a few days, our favorite Thanksgiving traditions and of course, all of the food! Our menu is similar to years past, turkey (in the turkey fryer!), cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole, roasted brussels sprouts (my bro is in charge of this dish), this amazing sweet potato casserole we made last year that I have been craving ever since, stuffing muffins, homemade rolls & cinnamon butter, and a pumpkin pie!
I wanted to share our Thanksgiving playlist, I always love having some good background music for dinner and these are a few of my favorites! If you have any good jams (or menu items!) that should be added to the list, be sure to leave them in the comments!
Wishing you all the happiest week ahead with friends & family!! XO
Spring does something seriously wonderful for the soul. Finding every excuse to spend the entire weekend outside & enjoying the sunshine that lingers just a little bit longer each afternoon. Hammock season is back & our babies love it just as much as we do. Harper tells stories, Eloise giggles & begs for more swinging & Claire is just about as snuggly as a baby could be. We are going camping in a few weeks, we can’t wait to take the girls hiking & show them the mountains.
With that, sharing a few quick jams that are on our Spring playlist. I’m so happy you all have enjoyed these, we love music so much & I love putting these together. The girls love to dance & we just feel like a good playlist totally just sets the mood.
