Valentine's Day // Put Your Da*n Phone Away!




Happy Valentine's Day or not if you don't believe in celebrating, which is totally ok. I have always loved Valentine's Day, not because of the flowers, candy, and gifts, but because it's one day to really remind your significant other that you truly love them. Now you may be thinking, "they know and I know so I don't need a day to remind or be reminded." That may be true, but if you really think about it, do you really remind your significant other that you truly love them and vice versa?

Being a millenial, yes I am one of those annoying people and you are too if you were born after 1981, we are SO wrapped up in ourselves and social media that we often forget to show our love to those that really matter. I am guilty of it, my husband is guilty, and you probably are too. I am not saying that it's necessarily a bad thing, but don't you find it a little disturbing that we long for "likes" and "loves" from other people sitting behind that computer and cell phone, while the person that truly matters it sitting right beside you?! Ringing a bell, yet?

My husband and I have been together almost 12 years and a majority of those years, he has shown his love a little more than usual on Valentine's Day by spoiling me with flowers and candy. Did you notice I said a majority? Yeah, trust me, they all haven't been pretty. Just a couple years ago, I didn't want any flowers, candy, or even him to look at me on Valentine's Day. Marriage is so damn hard especially when one is only thinking of themselves and going through a terrible time in their life. Just when life feels like it is over, you have great life changing experience that brings you and you husband back together and stronger than ever. Amazing isn't it?!

Marriages aren't supposed to be perfect because they would be boring. You will have arguments, life issues, people who are against you (who really have no room to talk because there are some huge skeletons in those closets that would ruin their marriage), but then you have high moments that make it better again. That's life. That's marriage.

This post is not meant to make you feel like a bad wife/husband/boyfriend/girlfriend, but just a friendly reminder that even though you may think your Valentine knows you love them, remind them. Get her those grocery store flowers (may fav), write her a sweet message in a card, remind him how amazing he is (men love hearing that lol), buy him that cool new gadget he has been talking about. Better yet, just put your damn phone away and show them, tell them how much they mean to you. That truly is the best gift you could give someone.

Happy Valentine's Day, friends!

XOXO,

Wear it Wednesday // Valentine's Day



Hi friends! I have really been on the struggle bus lately with these blog posts and I truly apologize. We have been so busy lately and I believe I still have the January blues. It has been so cold here and we have almost a foot of snow on the ground, so it's just depressing around here. I am more than ready for spring so we can be outside more and I can start taking more pics for the blog. It's hard to take pictures when it's -10 and a foot of snow on the ground. BUT one thing I am looking forward to is Valentines Day, which is one week from today! 💑

To be honest, my husband and I will probably be cuddled up on the couch with our three boys watching a movie, which is totally ok with me! My mom is visiting this weekend so we may sneak in an early Valentine's date. Since we don't have big plans for love day, I thought I would share a super simple, but cute, Valentine's look for those of you that are in the same love boat as me. I actually love the way this look turned out and how comfy it is!

I have had this blush sweater for months now and have worn it so much! When I ordered this cute peplum top a few weeks ago, I knew it would be perfect for Valentines Day! It is a little long, which is great for leggings, so I decided to pair with my favorite blush sweater. Tied the sweater in a knot so the peplum showed more, paired it with leggings, these $12.99 pink mules that match perfectly with the peplum top, and a cute pair of red heart sunnies just for show! 😉 I don't know about you, but I 😍 this look! Hope you have a lovely Valentines Day!

I have linked each item so you can have this cozy Valentine's look!

XOXO,

Valentine's Day Gift Guide // Men

Hi ladies! How is your week going so far? It's going over here. Ha! I am SO happy about today being the last day of January! I don't know about you but I definitely have the January blues. I have been in such a funk lately and I believe it's just the cold, dreary, and long days that January brings. Tomorrow starts a new month, which means we are one month closer to Spring! YAY!

Since next month is February, the love month, I thought I would do another gift guide for the special men in your life. Even if you are a single pringle, these gifts are great for your dad, uncle, grandpa, etc. They don't have to be for Valentine's Day, they can just be for someone who has a birthday is February. For those of you that are looking to spoil your man on Valentine's Day, I have gathered my favorites, as well as my hubby's (he helped me with this guide 😍), gift ideas under $50! All of these gift ideas are super affordable but still great enough to spoil him. Order by February 6th to receive standard shipping and have in time for love day!
