Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!!  I hope you've had a great week.  We did some fun Valentine's Day crafts, ran some errands, did some house hunting and are looking forward to a fun weekend at home.  No big plans and lots of relaxing.  I got a much better report from the doctor this week saying my blood pressure looked much better and baby boy is doing GREAT!  Don't have to go back for two weeks.  Hooray!

My favorite parts of the week were:

I got a sweet Valentine's Day care package in the mail this week.
These cookies were amazing!!  Now I'm motivated to start working on making our valentines for friends and family.  I also picked up some Valentine's Day sprinkles so I'm ready to make some cute desserts.  I'm having trouble finding the Valentine's Day Funfetti - have you seen it anywhere this season??

I've been lucky enough to collaborate with Marley Lilly for two years in a row and love their personalized products.  They've got tons of jewelry and accessories to choose from.  I'd like one of everything they sell and they have great sales throughout the year.  They sent me this monogrammed gold pearl necklace and it's so sweet!  I love the dainty necklace with my monogram and really loved stacking it with two of my other favorite gold necklaces.  It's perfect for layering and so classic with that pearl charm.  You can order it in silver or gold and I bet anyone would love getting this for a gift.

My sister sent me some ADORABLE boy moccasins for Fletcher.  I can't wait to have him wear them.  His big sister wore some adorable gold bow moccasins when she was a baby, but they aren't really gender neutral so it's nice to have a boy option for him.  Aren't they cute?!?!  I haven't bought any shoes for our little guy so it was fun to get a pair in the mail.

My Dad came up for a quick day trip to help us with some house hunting this week.  He did all the things that Dad's are supposed to do... ask questions, poke his head down into the crawl space, look at the foundation and look over our list of potential projects.  It was a really productive day and we made him some cookies to say thank you for his help.  Olive was thrilled to have him around and skipped her nap to watch out the window for him to arrive.

We met some friends at a local bounce house facility and Olive climbed, jumped and played for a few hours.  It was so fun to see her being brave and figuring out how to climb to the top of things.  She's not afraid of anything and that kind of makes me afraid.  I enjoyed visiting with the other moms and she had a good time with her friends so I'd call it a win-win for both of us.  Note: this is the only time where I can convince her to wear socks and she insists on taking them off as soon as she's done bouncing.  Oh toddlers...

  6. Ah, that's so awesome your Dad came to help you house hunt! That made my heart happy because I feel the same way about my Dad.. he's the first I call to ask "so there is an issue with this and that with the house" and we bounced lots of questions off of him when we were house hunting. :-) Happy Weekend!!
