Five on Friday - Valentine’s Day Faves

Happy Friday, y’all!  It’s been a busy week this week, but I’ve spent lots of time connecting with others – volunteering at the kids’ school, lunching with old coworkers, and spending time outside – and I’m feeling quite refreshed and excited for the weekend!  Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and since I already shared a couple of other Valentine’s Day related posts this week, I thought I’d just keep the theme going with some Valentine’s Day faves!

O N E – Home Décor 

I bought this garland from the one and only Target this year and it has been such a fun edition to our mantle.  The wood beading detail makes it more substantial than most other garlands and the warm wood tones give it such a rich look.

I also bought this table runner because one, it’s pink, two, it’s covered in hearts, and three, it has ruffles.  It’s the perfect size for our kitchen table and I like that I am able to use it without having to put away any of our everyday decorations to accommodate it. 

T W O – Ladies Clothes

I absolutely love this sweater on Amazon.  It comes in lots of other color combos, too.  Just precious.

I also love this top (below) and this top (second below) as well.

T H R E E – Kids Clothes

Target is killing it in the little girls section right now (I mean, when aren’t they?) and there are so many cute Valentine’s Day options.  Give them all to us!!

This multi-hearts dress is the perfect comfy play dress.

And this dress has a fun tulle skirt... these are always Olivia's favorite dresses. 

And these leggings could be paired with either of them.  So fun!

Jacob’s at the age where he’s probably not too interested in wearing anything Valentines-y (yes, I made up that word), but there are a few options that he wouldn't mind wearing.

F O U R – Gifts Ideas

We don’t go overboard for V-Day, but I do like to get a card + a little something for each of the kids.  We are a big LEGO family, and they have the cutest sets that are perfect to give as Valentine’s Day gifts.  

Puzzles and fun plates and cups also make fun gifts.

For the man or lady in your life, how perfect is this scratch-off bucket list or list of dates to go on?  Something fun for y'all to do together as a couple!

I’m also a big fan of mugs, and there are definitely some cute ones that would make great gifts for pretty much anyone. 

F I V E – Valentine’s Day Cards

I’m going to go ahead and give the award for best store-bought Valentine’s Day cards to these – Mad Libs cards + pencils!  Each kid gets a card with it’s own Mad Libs message to fill out and it comes with a cute pencil that they can keep.  It’s fun, it’s educational, and it comes with something they’ll use every day.  The best part?  They come 16 to a box and they are only $3.50!  Jacob wanted to give every third-grader a card this year (46 kids total) and we were able to get enough for both third grade classes for just over $10. 

And if your child is obsessed with Frozen 2 as Olivia is, be sure to check out these Frozen 2 Valentines!  Each card comes with a sparkly tattoo so they're extra fun!  Only $2.50 per box.

Friday Funnies

I don't need no man!

Brian and Maui.  Hahahaha.

Still waiting...

Me in my ball gown tomorrow night when we're leaving the house.

Soap ends up costing $100 every single time.

On the Blog This Week

Jacob officially has his first baseball practice tomorrow, then B and I are off to a ball Saturday evening and hosting a Super Bowl get together at our house Sunday evening... it should be a fun weekend!  Happy Friday, y’all!
