Five on Friday

HAPPIEST Valentines Day!!  We hope everyone has had the best week & that you are feeling lots of love on this special day.  Despite freezing weather for what now feels like weeks upon weeks, our hearts are warm.  I can't wait to celebrate Valentines Day with my two Valentines!!
 
 Waverly Maye & I are honored to be joining in with other bloggers today as a part of "Team Teddy".  I'm sure that you have heard his amazing story, but for those who haven't or want to read more, you can find it hereSuper Teddy is definitely a superhero, & the strength of his parents during such a hard time has truly inspired me.  While I wish I could do more, the best support I can offer is by spreading the word.  I encourage you to do the same; join with us on your blog, Instagram or Facebook with "Team Teddy" signs.  Help Teddy's mom in her journey to bring awareness to Menkes so that we can find a cure!!
 

When Natasha from Hello Happiness posted about making this our #1 today, I was so excited to be a part of it.  I honestly attempted to share my other 4, but after writing about Teddy, I couldn't find a way to make any of them sound important.  So instead, I decided to skip my others this week & give all my love to Teddy!  I look forward to sharing again next Friday, I'm sure I will have more than enough to write about by then. ;)

Of course, I have sweet little plans with both of my Valentines today!!  The good news, we have dinner for three tonight.  Nothing too crazy, these days it's way more fun for wild Waverly to stay home for dinner rather than be constricted to a high chair.  The not so good news, I have school tomorrow & if you forgot, tomorrow is a Saturday.  Oh yes, after weeks of declaring how excited I was that Valentines Day falls on a Friday this year, my school system decided to plan our first snow make-up day for the Saturday after Valentines Day.
 
And this is how we feel about that ... both of us, I've been pouting ever since, too.

 
Hugs & kisses from us to you!!!!  We hope you have the best weekend & the sweetest holiday!
XOXO

  2. Ok, school on Saturday? Not. Cool. On a happy note, I think this outfit is my new favorite on Waverly...seriously SO cute! I'm so behind on reading blogs that I didn't know about the team Teddy movement until literally almost midnight last night! My post was already done and I went to bed feeling like the biggest turd on the planet so we'll be doing something in the coming days to help make up for it ;)

  14. I had no idea that schools could do makeup days on Saturdays! Ours were always tacked on to the end of the semester. Interesting.

    Love Waverly's face in that last photo - so cute and sassy!

  28. That last pic is killer in the cuteness department. Total fail in the scheduling department though - did somebody not look at a calendar with holidays marked when they planned that one?
