FRIDAY FAVORITES...VALENTINE'S DAY EDITION

Happy Valentine’s Day my beautiful lovelies! Well, I have virtually done nothing this week, I think I overdid it during the weekend and this cold has kept me down with the deep coughs and yucky feels. Hoping to feel better this weekend and get out and do something with my love!

1. Weekend with my College Loves
What a memorable weekend to spend with 2 of the college boys. You may remember a few months ago we went to the IU/Purdue football game at Purdue. Well, now it was time to turn the tables and go to the IU Purdue basketball game at IU. What made it most memorable of all, is that Coach Bobby Knight returned to Indiana University’s Assembly Hall for the first time since the year 2000, when he was fired. He was one of the most loved and hated coaches in the history of basketball and it was truly something to witness. There were so many tears and emotions running high in Assembly Hall that day. He is not well, and his memory is faded but what a moment for him and all IU fans. Then, despite the colds Mr. Nine and I had, we got to enjoy a fun evening with the boys at a great restaurant called Social Cantina where we got complementary queso since one of our son’s friends works there. Yum! We then headed to Brothers bar another college bar called Crazy Horse. The boys continued the night while Mr. Nine and I took cough medicine and hit the hay.

2. Bear Hugs...Cutest Treat Bag Printable
Of course, I took my sweet boys some Valentines Bags and included in it were these treat bags I made with these free Printable's. So easy and so sweet. You just get Teddy grahams and red gummy bears and put a few in the bag. I also added some wrapped chocolate bears I found at TJ Maxx. The cutest little treat idea. Are use Wilton 4 x 6 Treat Bags and they worked perfectly with the printable topper.

4. Red Polka Dots
I heard someone say they were glad polka dots were back, but I never knew they were gone. I have always loved polka dots and this dress is so stinking adorable! The fabric feels so good and I didn’t mean to but it kind of accidentally turned into a re-creation of mini Minnie Mouse, LOL

VALENTINE'S IN THE MAIL
Talk about some happy mail to brighten my yucky week. My dear friend Sierra from Beautifully Candid is such a precious soul. Her three little guys mirror mine, just many years younger. I see so much of our family in them and I just love the uplifting sweetness she brings. This girl truly knows the true meaning of family and I love how her and her husbands creative hearts create so many special memories for their guys. I sent them some valentines last week and they sent me the sweetest thank you package. Make sure you check out her Blog if you don’t already know her and follow her on Instagram. She is one uplifting mama whom I adore!! 


Go Shower those you love with LOVE and Have a great weekend!

GREEN PLEAT GORGEOUS RE-CREATION

I have become so crazy over the pleated midi skirts that I now own four of them! When I saw this one, so rich in a deep green color from a Pinterest pin, I knew it had to be one of my re-creations.


 A few years ago, I did a post entitled Why I Will No Longer Shop at Forever 21, and part of it centered around a too short bodysuit. However, this wrap front surplice black bodysuit with the blouson sleeves is perfect and comfy!



And I was tickled pink to find this matte Black Satchel Purse. It literally looks like it cost several hundred dollars and was just a fraction of that. The wide stretch Belt tied everything together so perfectly and I think this is one of the closest re-creations I have ever got.


The darling shoes are on major sale right now too!


What do you think? Did I do good?

VALENTINE'S DAY & THE TIERED TRAYS

You may remember last year, I kind of incorporated some red valentine decor in with my Regular Tiered Tray. Well, I have upped my tiered tray game big-time this past year, now owning three of them. This year, I decorated two of them for sweet Valentine’s Day! One of them in a soft and feminine pink and white and the other one, my amazing Black Tiered Tray, with lots of lovely red!


I hope you like them; they sure bring some sweetness to our home! I really can’t pick a favorite between the two because I really love pink and I really love red, LOL! Let me know what you think of them and I’ve included the details at the end of this post where I can for some of these love filled items!

Up first is the pink and white tray. This tray was all based around a Pinterest pin where I saw the darling little Rolling Pins last year. I ordered them but they weren’t here in time for Valentine’s Day so I knew this tray would be created this year! I got the little striped marshmallows at Party City and a favorite find for this tray was the Rae Dunn mug that says Me & You, as that was mine and Mr. Nine‘s wedding song by Kenny Chesney! I absolutely love how sweet this tray is. Small Ceramic Pedestals are great for height on the trays like where I have the eyelash cups.






The little Marshmallow Mug Faces are so precious and I can see myself utilizing those for other trays throughout the year. I already have plans for the next trays themes.

I had almost everything to create this red and white tray and I love what a statement of love it makes! My dear friend Laura got me the red and white wood beads for Christmas but by simply hiding the tag that had a Christmas saying on it, they were perfect for Valentine’s Day. My mom got me the little bicycle last year and I knew it had to be included on the tray. She also got me the cute felt heart placemat below the tray on clearance last year and I love how well it goes with the tray. Probably one of my favorite things also are the stack of books I got from A favorite Shop on Etsy!
