The Highlights

We had a week full of LOVE and Valentine's Day fun at our house.
Let me show you...

1. Olive's swimsuit arrived this week!!
I loved this style on her last year, knew I wanted her to have a monogrammed suit this year, loved the raspberry color and you can never go wrong with polka-dots.  I found a great deal through instagram and am really pleased with the quality.  I can't wait for warmer weather so she can wear it.
2. We made valentine themed treats to share with friends & Olive's teachers.
I'm planning to make some brownies or brownie cookies this weekend.
Cookie recipe here
3. We made Olive You! valentines for Olive to send out to family and friends.  We've also gotten several valentines in the mail this week so checking our mailbox has been fun.  Olive's teachers made a sweet valentine with her and it's proudly hanging in our kitchen.

4. We got several Valentine's Day packages this week and they made us so happy!!  My sister sent us some delicious cookies, treats and hand sewn things.  My mom sent us darling things for Olive and surprised us with some fun finds.  I had to hide all the treats because Olive quickly learned to shout KEE KEE (cookie) and NUMMY NUMMY (M&Ms).  She was also mesmerized by the styrofoam packing peanuts and played with them all week long.

 5. It was a very sunny week in Mississippi so we played out in the backyard every single day.  It was a little chilly, but it was lovely!!  I enjoyed refilling our bird and squirrel feeders and Olive was more interested in swinging, sliding and driving around the patio (only in reverse because moving forward is far too much work - haha)
 Any big plans for your weekend??

Hope you have a great one!! 
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
