Happy Valentine’s Weekend!

Hope you all are as excited as I am to kick off a fun holiday weekend!!  I thought I would stop in and spread a little sweetness to help you get started, some pictures of the girls in pink & hearts in honor of all things love. πŸ™‚  I took these last week on a random warm day (of course now we are expecting snow), I always like to send out Valentines cards to our families so I thought some beach pictures would be fun this year.
Not pictured, Waverly freaking out over the wind, afraid that both our dog & Avalon would somehow (miraculously) run away, and Avalon eating more sand than I care to admit.  The story behind the pictures is really always my favorite, I know that’s the part I will back on and smile most one day years from now.

I can’t wait to surprise these two with a couple goodies and a fun breakfast Sunday morning.  As for my Valentine of 17 years now, all I have requested is for him to assist me in painting our family room wall grey.  Sexy, I know.

Also, a little PSA to any followers in Utah, there will be a pop-up shop at the Baby Cubby in Lindon next Saturday, February 20th.  They will have one of our absolute favorite lines, Little Unicorn, for 20% off, their spring stuff is amaaazing & I am so jealous of those of you who are actually close enough to go!  The event lasts from 1-4, along with the Little Unicorn Line, Tnees Tpees will also be on-site and 15% off.  Please shop for me!
Wishing you lots of love with your own Valentines this weekend! XO

    Such adorable girls! Avalon's lips in that second picture…I die. Enjoy your weekend!

    Avalon's pouty face is toooo funny. What great pictures, the beach is such a great backdrop for the pretty outfits. 17 years, wow that's a super fantastical Valentine :)!

    LOVE THEM! Have a great weekend…Chad is teaching me how to make gnocchi. I hope I stay awake long enough to eat it! xoxo

    Love the beach pictures AND the story about them! And I so want to hit up that pop up shop… But I also don't want to drive an hour both directions on a Saturday… Such precious family time. Decisions, decisions!

    I loooovveee the picture with the dog. I don't think I even realized you guys had a dog.

    Oh these pictures are too sweet! I love them! Annnnnnnd I'm pretty sure Mia doesn't know she can hold James standing up yet… I'm trying to avoid her seeing any pictures of other kids doing it because I'm terrified of her trying to carry James around our house (which is only tile) considering he weighs over half of what she weighs…. HA HA!
    Oh Baby Cubby… just another reason I miss Utah! But I suppose my wallet is glad we are in Arizona now, ha!

    So cute! Those little loves are too precious! Happy Valentine's weekend to you friend! We started our festivities today by mommy making some brownie cake pops! I have a fun breakfast planned and tiny goodies. Very low key this year! πŸ˜‰

    I'm amazed that you are only a few hours away from me and you had a windy beach day. It is so cold here. I'm a bit jealous. πŸ™‚ looks like the girls had fun. Love Waverly's love for her little sis.

    THE cutest Valentine ladies I ever did see!
    Have a fabulous Valentine Weekend!

    Your photos are your girls just keep getting prettier and prettier and prettier. Seriously!!

  11. February 13, 2016 / 10:40 pm

    These are THE sweetest!!! I love the picture of Avalon on top of Waverly! It sure does look like it was a windy day but the pictures still came out adorable!

  12. February 16, 2016 / 3:21 am

    Gorgeous photos! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's weekend (filled with painting?) πŸ™‚

Happy Valentines Weekend!

We just wanted to stop in for a quick post to wish you all the HAPPIEST holiday weekend full of pink, red, hearts, & lots of sweets with your loved ones!!

Waverly & I are kicking off the long weekend with some major girl time, we have had a crazy couple of weeks with sitters either being sick or out of town, so I had to take the day off work.  Damn. πŸ˜‰  We are planning to go get our first official manicure together this afternoon, I’ve mentioned recently that Waverly is obsessed with painting her nails so I have been meaning to take her & I feel like this is perfect timing!  Of course, it could totally go either way, fingers crossed she at least sits long enough for the technician to do one nail.

Also on the agenda, a Valentines date night with the hubs, we will be dropping off Waverly at her grandparents with her cousins for parents night out.  I have been racking my brain all week as to where I want to go eat (we obviously get out a lot), so far I have come up with Chinese, Mexican, or my personal favorite, the frozen yogurt shop.  Or maybe just a combination of the three.  I’m telling you, this pregnancy round two is doing crazy things to my appetite.

In keeping with this holiday’s theme of love, I thought I would share a couple of things I am loving this week!!  I have been wanting a new robe for a while now, something tells me that come June, I am going to be living in one while nursing a newborn & staying homebound for a little while.  I love the print on this one, plus it is on sale this week!  I’ve also had my eye out for new dolls for both girls & love all of these!  I’m hoping to get one for the littlest lady’s nursery & one as a gift for big sister, on the day she officially becomes a big sister!   And have you guys seen the new Easter line already out at Target?!  They have the cutest aprons for little people (in-store),  Waverly & I got some use out of her new one this week for some Valentines crafts!

Lastly, what I love the most, my two-year old Valentine who has been cracking me up all week long.  When I told her Sunday night that my sister’s friend Taylor was coming to watch her the next day since my sister was out of town, she looked up at me with the straightest, most serious face & said, “Taylor Swift?”.  Not this time, honey.  Then when my husband & I tucked her into bed a couple nights ago, she yelled “good night, sweetheart!” to both of us as we walked out the door.  We just couldn’t love her more. πŸ™‚

Happy, HAPPY holiday weekend to you all!!!

    You've got the cutest lil Valentine, lady. She is so precious in those pictures. It sounds like you are going to have an amazing Valentine's day weekend. SO sweet Lil W will be getting her first manicure with you, I think that's the perfect date with MAMA.

    Honestly, your three choices sound amazing. Definitely hit up the froyo shop, you need it ;)!

    THanks for the link with the robe. I'm in the market for one and will have to check it out!

    Have a faaaaabulous weekend, lady! Stay warm, too!

  2. February 13, 2015 / 1:12 pm

    I've been thinking about getting a new robe too! Something about a silky robe seems fitting after having a baby right? I may purchase the same one myself. πŸ™‚ Hope Waverly enjoys her first manicure, I haven't taken A yet for hers, sounds like a fun afternoon activity. Happy Valentines!

  3. February 13, 2015 / 1:32 pm

    She's so cute in her little heart glasses!
    Hope you have a nice date night with your hubby!! Have a great weekend girl!

  4. February 13, 2015 / 1:41 pm

    Cutest Valentine ever! πŸ™‚ I hope you have a blast getting your nails done and spending some QT with the hubs!! xoxo

  5. February 13, 2015 / 2:16 pm

    Yay, enjoy your day off with Waverly today! It sounds like you're going to have so much fun! Can't wait to read all about your Valentines weekend!

  13. February 13, 2015 / 5:53 pm

    She is the cutest! Happy Valentine's Day to your little family! <3

  14. February 13, 2015 / 6:47 pm

    Taylor Swift, too funny! I'd say a combo of all three restaurants is perfectly acceptable for a pregnant Valentine's Day. Although personally I'd go for Mexican + Fro Yo πŸ˜‰

  15. February 13, 2015 / 7:40 pm

    Hahaha! TSwift!! That would be awesome, Waverly! πŸ™‚ She's so cute! I love that you're getting your nails done together. I can't wait for Mim to be able to do this with me. Well, I can wait because I want her to be a baby forever. Why do they have to grow up?!

  16. February 13, 2015 / 8:39 pm

    she's so precious! love her heart sunglasses!

    We had mommy-daughter pedicures a couple of weeks ago and it was so fun!

  17. February 14, 2015 / 12:23 am

    You have one adorable Valentine!
    Can't wait to hear how those manicures go. I'm sure Waverly will be a champ!
    And, if you get T.Swift to babysit you will officially win mother of the year. πŸ™‚
    Have a fabulous Valentine's Day!

  18. February 14, 2015 / 3:46 am

    She is just so darn cute. πŸ™‚ Happy to hear that you guys will be getting a fun date night. Might as well go for that trifecta! πŸ˜‰ Happy Valentine's Day!

  19. February 14, 2015 / 2:43 pm

    bahaha Taylor Swift, maybe next time! It always cracks me up when Aria copies things I say to Chris. Love it! Happy Valentine weekend – I vote for a combo of all three btw.

  20. February 14, 2015 / 5:59 pm

    Noah's been wearing his Christmas apron since we don't have another kid size one! I'll have to check ou target! Happy Valentine's Day! Have a great long weekend!

  21. February 17, 2015 / 6:35 pm

    Waverly is so precious! I love her heart shaped glasses. Yay for girl time. How did she do with her manicure? Taylor Swift? Goodness, I love that!! Too stinkin’ cute!
