For our Valentine date night, we made reservations with the best friends and had a night out together! You know you really love people when you'd like to spend your Hallmark holiday with them, right? We went to The Sutler Saloon for dinner and it was so tasty...yummy cocktails that didn't break the bank and we all split a few apps and entrees so we could sample all the goods. Add in a swing band with audience participation and it made for a fun night out!
And some of you asked about where to find my outfit... skirt was Francesca's (sold out), blouse was Forever 21, and Fur Scarf is from Nordstrom.
If the frozen tundra would ever go away, then the UPS man might bring this gal some new goodies from Stella B, an online boutique I recently discovered thanks to Jenny. I was itching to get some spring wearables in my closet and so I took home this fun printed dress and some pom pom fringe shorts!
The hardwoods are officially in upstairs and they look amazing... they have been aging for close to two weeks and now have their first coat of stain down. Next up will be 2-3 coats of "poly" and then we will FINALLY be able to move the girls back into their rooms (thank the Lord). While that's going on, our painter has been tackling the foyer as well as the upstairs/downstairs hallways... we are changing out the trim to Sherwin Williams Pure White and the walls will be painted the same color as Carson's room... Sherwin Williams First Star. It's been nonstop chaos at our house the past few weeks with the girls shuffled into sleeping in the playroom, now downstairs, and the winter weather hasn't helped the cabin fever... and to think we signed up for this willingly, right?
My baby's (yes she will always be my baby) 3rd birthday party is right at a month away and I'm planning away like crazy... see earlier post from this week for inspiration. With that, I am racking my brain trying to come up with a fun present that isn't another random toy to add to our pile, but something fun that she and her sister can use ALL the time. Hence, the ever popular bounce house. Any of you friends out there have one? And yes all you safety patrol, we will be purchasing one that has stakes to make sure it doesn't go flying away.
Finally, I want to share with you a fun new shop I found called Sacred Made. These fabulous southern friends launched their business back in 2013 and they have been crafting beautiful prints with amazing scripture ever since. They give a portion of their proceeds to two very special ministries in Southern China and Uganda, Africa, so you know your purchase is going to help someone else, too.
I chose this gold foil print and I cannot wait to add it to the gallery wall that I'm currently working on for the playroom... God first and this is something I hope everyone that comes in our home takes note of! Thanks for sharing your lovely shop with me Becca and Catherine!
You know what to do friends... share away and link up below with your Friday Five so we can see what you're cooking/drinking/wearing/getting into this weekend!! Cheers to the weekend my lovelies.
