Friday Favorites - Valentine's Day Edition

Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays of the year. I know a lot of people think it's a "Hallmark Holiday" & maybe it is, but I love it & I'm standing by that! We don't do extravagant gifts or dinners at our house, but we do do a lot of fun little things to make it special. 

My favorite thing about Valentine's Day this year has been picking out festive outfits for Ella to wear! I shared this collage earlier, but I still love all of the items in it! 

And here she is yesterday at her Valentine's Day party with her best friend! 

They had to celebrate a day early because our babysitter leaves on a cruise today. I'm so jealous of Miss Jennie! We all sent in Valentines & these were Ella's... 

I found the felt envelopes at my favorite store - Target! That dollar bin has some real treasures. The Frozen socks are from there too.

I made the fishbowls Valentines cards myself with free clipart, cardstock, & a sharpie. They were super simple & the girls loved coloring them during their party! 

Ella left last night to go to her Grammy Nancy's house for the weekend. Since Miss Jennie is off today, I needed a back up babysitter - so Grammy to the rescue! She'll be staying until Monday morning, so I get to do all sorts of my favorite things on Saturday & Sunday. I'm currently planning to...
  • go to the gym every day 
  • visit the Public Market with my sister 
  • go to a jewelry trunk show Saturday afternoon 
Fancy restaurants just aren't our thing. So we're opting for a Valentine's Brunch on Sunday morning instead at one of my favorite restaurants - The Winfield Grill. They bring out warm mini blueberry muffins to your table & have complimentary mimosas. I obviously can't partake in the latter, but Eric is certainly looking forward to it. Nothing says love like omelettes & pancakes. You can quote me on that. 

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!
