Friday: First One for February

Happy February! I'm so glad to see the beginning of a new month; January was especially busy and filled with sickness and overall craziness, so I happily waved "goodbye" to the first month of the year and am welcoming February with open arms. 

Here are some of my favorite things this week: 

Speaking of February, I got some of my Valentine's Day d├ęcor put up around the house. It's not too much, but it's enough to be festive! The majority of this was from Target's Dollar Aisle; seriously, Target's been killing it lately! 

Walker's "school" sent me the photo of him in the upper right-hand corner and I plan on framing that next to the little foot craft he made at day care a few months before I started staying at home. I can't believe how big that little foot has gotten! 

Are any of y'all watching "Z: The Beginning of Everything" on Amazon about Zelda Fitzgerald? We started it a couple of weeks ago and have been really impressed with it! The costumes alone are enough to watch for, but the history of it is very interesting, too. Just another reason to be completely addicted to Amazon Prime! {Click here for a referral code to join Amazon Prime!}

I've told you boy mamas about the Facebook group "Snips and Snails," which is basically an online resale shop for sweet smocked boy clothes. I've scored SO MANY cute things for Knox on there -- namely smocked John-Johns and some sweet bubbles -- but I've also found adorable shirts on there for Walker, too, in 3T and 4T sizes. I so wish I would have known about this site when Walker was tiny! 

I saw this cute top online at Francesca's and feel like it's a must-purchase. It's so cute and perfect for spring. 

Brandon and I have a date night planned for this weekend and I'm so excited about that! We haven't had a date in a while and are trying to be more intentional about doing them in 2017. 

Linking up with: April, Amanda, Amy, Andrea and Katie

  14. You're right, that top is a must-purchase. Stopping by from A Little Bit of Everything Friday Favorites link-up, enjoy your weekend!

  15. Cute top! And I agree Target was on point with the Valentine's decor. I just wonder why all the $1 stuff is now $3?!?! Because of people like us who fall for that area over and over maybe? LOL I want to check out that show about Z - maybe this weekend! Have a great one.

  16. Love your decor! The Dollar Spot is one of my biggest weaknesses. I try not to look when I walk by, but it always sucks me in. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and enjoying your date!
