I can’t believe Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and then before we know it, (let’s hope!!!) it will be Easter! I’m beyond ready for some WARM weather since today’s high is literally 1 degree. Can’t wait to be able to go outside with Magnolia to play and for walks.
Since we can’t do that for the next 4 months (yep, most likely 4 more months of this glorious weather….), I thought I’d share a little of what we’ve been up to lately!
We did venture outside one day for a little sledding in our driveway action. Not to be redneck or anything but it was a whole lot easier than trudging through the feet of snow in the backyard without snow pants!
Just as we figured… she LOVED it and didn’t mind the cold. She kept saying “more” and after about 5 times in a circle around the driveway (got my cardio in, that’s for sure!), we decided we’d be done!
We’ve been playing a lot in the basement since we finished her little play area (for the most part) with the insane amount of toys she got with having her birthday and Christmas about the same time!
She’s a lover of all things cheerio 🙂
I feel the same way about pretzels, girl.
In case you were wondering, this blog has completely turned into Magnolia’s world and I’m just living in it! I remember the days I used to post about cute fashion and now i’m a total “Mom” in every sense of the word and wear all the leggings and top knots that I can!
I did wear a super cute and comfy top for coffee with a girlfriend the other week. I’m also trying the Isle of Paradise drops in my moisturizer so that helps me with a little glow!
And then we attended Magnolia’s first friend birthday party! She sure wasn’t shy at all…
These girls are technically only a little over a month apart and I hope they grow up being best friends!
We’ve also been celebrating Valentine’s Day all month long!
We started by making a plate with her feet on it so we have it to pull out every year for decorations (and I can look back and remember those little things!).
We decorated for the holiday and added some of these gel window clings!
Magnolia made Valentine’s for our families to send!
We also made Valentine heart-shaped brownies and Magnolia is a HUGE fan of these!
Magnolia hasn’t been feeling well (thankfully this week she’s doing great – but it’s a day by day thing with daycare these days!) and had Influenza A last week.
While she was CRAZY fussy – I don’t blame her at all but man it was rough with Logan traveling for work – she had moments of her silly self come out too 🙂
I shared this picture on Instastories and a good friend said “Wow, she is your daughter!” and no truer words have been spoken! HA!
I’m alllllll about the pretzels (I could live off them, no joke!) and sunglasses!
I had a much needed brunch with girlfriends this past weekend to celebrate a big birthday (not mine!) and we ALWAYS say it’s going to happen more often but I feel like I need to make a standing date because life just gets too busy for all of us!
We also had an almost 40 degree day one Sunday so we went outside for a little sledding in the backyard again (AKA workout of pulling a 20 lb baby on a sled through thick snow!). Good thing her smile is so sweet.
In case you’re also wondering about makeup… Magnolia is still obsessed with her Mama’s makeup and this will keep her busy for quite some time! She loves trying the brushes on her face and looking at every piece of makeup! You can also notice her little snaggletooth on the top 🙂 Of course our sweet little one wouldn’t get in any front teeth first!
Magnolia’s worn something Valentinesque every day this week and today is no different 🙂 How cute was she yesterday for school?!
That’s life lately around here! Thankfully it’s been pretty relaxing, just like we like it!
Come back tomorrow for some Friday Favorites and let me know… Do you guys do anything fun for Valentine’s Day? Date night or with kids?!
