Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!!! We are so excited for the weekend, lots of fun Valentine’s day prep (classroom Valentine’s & boxes with the girls that we have been working on all week, so fun!) and Harper’s FIFTH birthday next week! Before we sign off for the weekend, I wanted to share a few Friday Favorites, most of them Valentine related, hope it gets you in the festive mood!! πŸ™‚

This is the cutest DIY Valentine snack to make for kids, teddy grahams, conversation hearts & a dab of frosting, so easy! Harper gets to bring snacks to school next week so we may have to try this!

My favorite peplum teeΒ is on sale & now available in lots of new colors!

This homemade grapefruit lip scrub that I shared on my essential oils page, a super easy & sweet Valentine’s Day gift for your favorite girlfriends!

Obsessed with these gold metallic flats for Spring, I can’t decide if I actually love this shoe trend or just embrace it because it reminds me of my grandma.

We are planning our first beach trip in a few weeks, just grabbed the cutest swimsuit for Harper and for Eloise.

The cutest DIY, potted plant Valentines.

And last but not least,Β one of my favorite shops for kids (and the sweetest mama behind it!) is celebrating their five year shop-anniversary with a huge giveaway right over here. I have loved Childhoods from the day they first started making knotted bows & have loved following and supporting them as they have grown over the years!

Hope you all have a happy weekend!! XO

Valentine’s Playlist

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! πŸ™‚

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

Valentine’s Brunch

This weekendΒ we had a little Valentine’s brunch, a fun morning with some of our favorite girls & lots of heart shaped balloons. You know we love any excuse for a celebration! It was super simple & laid back, and messy of course, because I couldn’t tell the girls no when they spotted powdered donuts that morning at the grocery store. I made this overnight raspberry & cream cheese french toast bake, it was so easy & such a huge hit!Β We will definitely make it again, a perfect breakfast to prepare ahead of time if you have guests staying. We made some festive mimosas & the girls entertained themselves for hours sorting candy conversation hearts. Who knew they were so much fun?

The best part? These balloons will be floating around the house all week.

We have made it our goal to find one way to spread LOVE in some way, every single day in February, we would love it if you join us. Today might be a good day to hug a Falcons fan. πŸ˜‰ Hope you have a happy week. XO
