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!

  18. I'm so sorry that you were under the weather this week. I hope you're feeling better! I had a blah week with gray weather and Michael gone. Today we have sunny skies and I can already tell my mood has improved. The b-ball game looked so fun, and that pleated skirt is one of my favorite outfits I've seen lately. Love the bear hug treat idea. I've seen a dupe for the sneakers at Walmart. Have a good weekend, friend. :)
