Today is the day before Valentine’s, and I’m more excited about my son attending his first Valentines party. It might have something to do with him getting older, and really starting to have his own personality. He’s this fun loving toddler that smiles, gives his mom and dad big hugs, and gives his sister hugs and kisses. Seriously, there are days I have to pinch myself because I’m so proud of the way he’s adjusted to being a big brother. He loves her so much, but he won’t share any of his toys with her. It’s pretty funny how he simply takes his toy back like this is mine.
If you have plans for the big day, and want to get dressed up, or down this is one of my favorite dresses to wear. It’s sold out, but the Devlin Collection has a dress in the same print that is really pretty. I linked it above, and I’ll link in below as well. I dressed it down here, and I love dresses that can be worn lots of different ways. That’s usually how I justify the cost of dresses that are a little bit more of a splurge item for me. So, what are your big plans for the big day?
I think we’re staying in, and celebrating once both our babies are tucked in for the night. We will probably have a little extra dessert and champagne. Champagnes one of my favorite little splurges to have here and there. So I’m excited to celebrate our 9th Valentine’s together.

So, it’s been two months since I had baby Sofi, and I’ve been living in these long cardigans. They are my best friend while I’m rocking my post baby body. I’ve said it time, and time again that this last bit of baby weight is going to take sometime to come off. So, cardigans have been best buddy. They help me feel more comfortable in my own skin, and less self conscious. They also minimize problem areas, and add an extra layer to an outfit. They can really elevate an outfit depending on the quality of the fabric and color.
When I’m shopping for cardigans Nordstroms BP. brand is the first place I look. I love this brand because their cardigans aren’t too long on me, and don’t eat up my petite frame. My rule of thumb is as long as the cardigan doesn’t hit past my knee then I’m good. Otherwise, it chops my legs off, and I appear shorter. Which is not anyones goal when shopping!! Am I right? They come in a wide variety of sizes ranging from xxsmall to xlarge. (I’m wearing an xxsmall for size reference!!) The other thing, I love is the price point is usually somewhere between $44 to the mid $50’s. This is really important because we all have budgets were trying to stay with in, and this fits right into that happy spot for me. I’ve linked a few other perfect cardigans in different colors for y’all!
In other news, I wore this for a blogger coffee date in Houston at Tout Suite. They had the yummiest lattes, and the prettiest macaroons. I tried to be strong, and not partake in the beautiful macaroons, but ended making a special trip back to pick some up.They did not disappoint. They were even tastier than they were pretty. I didn’t think that was possible because they were so pretty. I shared a few pictures on Instagram because when you see something beautiful you have to share it!!
Alrighty, I think that’s it!! I hope y’all have a fabulous start to your week!!
