Valentine Inspired Outfits

If you have followed me long enough, you know I love celebrating holidays from my home décor to my fashion. For February I pulled out of the pink and red I could find! Here are my Valentine inspired outfits I was sporting in February!

Not totally Valentines but I did want to show you this adorable pink and red tassel bracelet from Dixie Delights, I wear all during February! This new white top is from Old Navy and the boots from Target.
Hot Pink Pants!
Be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons!
Can't get much more Valentines day then a big heart on your chest, even cuter when its monogrammed! I got this top from Etsy a few years ago and paired it with my red cardigan.
I wear this dress a lot at Christmas too, but its cute for Valentine's Day with the red. I paired it with my Dixie Delights tassel necklaces, the dress came from Lolly Wolly Doodle about 4 years ago.
This Target dress is also about 5 years old but still cute, especially with all my Dixie Delights Tassels!
This is the matching heart dresses from Pop Real the girls and I all wore on Vday!

I got this gray LOVE tee last year online and just paired it with my gray and black skirt and a denim jacket!
And although its not an outfit, it was still all about love, some heart shaped donuts from Dutch Monkey!
I love wearing seasonal colors, especially around Valentines, cause we could all use some more love!

Valentine's Day

Hey Everyone, hope your Valentine's Day was filled with lots of love and happiness!!
The girls had fun parties at school making cookies and exchanging tons of candy!
I ordered 2 Papa John's Heart Pizza's to dine on and on Tuesday night, I made this huge heart brownie, yum!!
I made this brownie with 2 cheap brownie mix boxes and put one in a regular casserole dish and the other in a circular cake pan then coated the entire thing in hot pink icing!
My sweet Valentines XOXO
Another set of matching dressed from Popreal.com!!
Family Selfie!
Daddy's girls!!
He surprised us with some flowers and gifts!!
I am thankful everyday I get to call these 2 mine, the best and cutest Valentine's out there!!
Also, as we were celebrating all things love yesterday, many parents and families worst fears came true when we got word that 17 precious lives were lost in a FL school shooting. There is nothing I can add that people don't already know, its truly heartbreaking. I know as many of you, we hold our loved ones closer and say thank you for another day. We will all be praying for this community and families XOXO

Valentine Chest & Tamale Casserole

If you are like me with little ones, you are probably spending Valentine's Day Eve prepping for your kids parties tomorrow. After about 2 hours on Saturday I pumped out about 45 Valentines for Nicole and Taylor's party tomorrow, but I got it done so Mom Win!
There are some restrictions these days on what you can bring into the classroom like not nuts, etc for kids with allergies. So I thought whoopee cushions are always safe!!
I got these from Oriental Trading Company and the super cute tags from my favorite blogger, Dixie Delights. She always has THE BEST ideas for kids, I think these will be a blast!
For Nicole's class I ordered some heart shaped suckers and tied them with a little card that says have a sweet valentine's day, these tags also came from Dixie Delights!
I decorated our loft chest with lots of dark red and pink! The cute heart banner came from Ebay and the Love banner came from Walmart that I hung over the mirror.
I moved my snowmen from the mantel to upstairs cause they say love, what is more prefect for Valentine's Day?! I also used my red charger that I put a P decal on.
This cute light up love sign also came from Walmart!
Although its not the prettiest picture, this dish is AWESOME!

Superbowl Party and Valentine Bedroom Decor

Hey Friends, I hope you had a great weekend!! Ours was pretty wet, but still fun!
I am a little late but I wanted to show you what we did to watch the Super bowl together!
Its nothing Earth shattering, very simple!
I just picked up some frozen Walmart pizza's, a cheese one and meat lovers and used some of my last year's décor from Oriental Trading.
I also got one of those yummy ready made Caesar salad kits and some Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies for a side and dessert, super easy and affordable!
We were not really cheering for either team but honestly were surprised to see the Eagles win, and were happy about that!!
Taylor and I did enjoy Justin Timberlake, we love the Trolls song!
I scored this cute fuzzy heart pillow from Goodwill and the girls LOVE it!! They love to sleep with it at night and it was only $3 bucks...SCORE!
I also added this heart wreath about our bed from Walmart.
The Happy Valentines Day pillow cover came from Ebay, they have a great selection on holiday pillow cases!!

Valentine Drink Station

Happy Friday Everyone!
This will be at 5 PM this afternoon!!
One of my favorite spots to decorate every holiday is our kitchen drink station, here it is all dolled up in red, pink and hearts XOXO
I got the cute heart garland from Walmart last year along with the heart chalkboard. Like my red table cloth, this red satin table runner gets used all thru the year!
I have had this all you need is love frame for years from Home Goods, it was also a song played at our wedding. The rose in the heart vase was the first rose Taylor got from Daddy.
I filled this mason jar up with Taylor's favorite candy hearts and some hot chocolate kcups in a red and white bowl, cause Valentines day is all about chocolate right?!
That sweetie pie in the pink frame is baby Taylor, a few weeks old..right before you pooped on this blanket!!
Memories :-)
I also added this little valentine towel to the kitchen
In our den I used Coco's heart blanket and ordered this pillow cover from Ebay, $5 bucks!!
I hope you have a safe, fun, and relaxing weekend!!

Valentine Table Scape & Mantel

Happy Thursday Friends, we are on the down hill slop of the week, yeah!! I have some more Valentine touches around the house I wanted to share with you, our February tablescape!
Keeping it real note *our dining room table is NEVER this clean!! This is only for a picture!!*
Our table is a catch all just so you know :-)
My Valentine table is very simple, just lots of pink and red! My Walmart red table cloth is a piece I use over and over again!! Perfect for so many holidays and I used another light pink table cloth as the runner. I cut a cheap paper heart banner in hold and tied them to the bar stools.
The heart placemats came from Home Goods a few years ago and I used my Christmas red poinsettias for the centerpiece.
A little different view of the table coming down the stairs, I also hung a little heart wreath from Walmart on the window.
I also added some love around our den mantel!
The garland came from Etsy a few years ago and the heart wreath came from Walmart.
Check out the new red lights I put in the fireplace!
I put some red and white tulips in a hot pink pitcher we had along with a little heart tree on one side of the mantel.
This cardboard love sign came from Walmart last year.
I put a red ribbon around the Trader Joe's candle I got for Xmas and the love sign also came from Walmart.
We spend a lot of time in our den, I hope all the red and pink valentine colors make it feel more lovely!!
