Happy Valentines Day!

I’m not going to waste your time with some mushy-gushy love song lyrics.

I’m not going to post about my wonderful husband (I’ll save that for another day).

I’m not going to post a recipe or a DIY craft.

I’m just going to post a photo from my wedding.

Valentines Ideas and Inspiration

This year I am not celebrating Valentines day (due to the little one being due any minute now), but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to being a grouch like I am! These are some of the best pins and photos for Valentines day ideas that I can find! (All photos in this post are from Tumblr.)

Finally Friday

Happy Friday y’all! Hope this week was as fantastic for you as it has been over here at our home! You ready for this weeks best-of-web post?

Things I Love Thursday – Christmas Edition

Its just DAYS before Christmas, and it is by far my favorite time of the year! Nothing is more magical and more amazing than this time of the year, look around! Look at the children, look at how excited they are! I LOVE Christmas!

This week there are lots of things I love! Lets start with these photos… two of my FAVORITE!

Nothing is more special to me than a capturing the magic that only kids can see and feel. I took this photo last year of one of my husbands cousins… so cute!

This is my father in law and one of his great nieces. My father in law is a SUCKER for kids, and as you can tell, they are a sucker for him too! Every time I see this photo I think of the classic childrens story, ‘If you give a mouse a cookie.’ Isn’t she adorable?!

Other things I am loving this week: Cheesy Potato Soup. My mother in law makes it every year for a family party, and we always get to take home leftovers! Yum!

Cookies! We have so many different kinds of cookies at our house right now. Snickerdoodles. Sugar Cookies. Chocolate Chip. Maple Bars. Christmas is definitley not for the healthy eaters, or the diabetics!

Ethnic Christmases! This year we are celebrating Scottish/Irish on Friday and German on Saturday (my Oma’s is always German, and always wonderful! Irish will be an adventure!). I am so excited that we do this each year and am excited to include my baby in these traditions next year.

What do you love this week?

Holiday Nail Cheer

I don’t know about you guys, but I always struggle to find nail inspiration for the holidays. Plain old red or green is easy, but just too predictable!

After lots of time surfing the interwebs I found some adorable nail shades and art for the holidays, enjoy!

I’m a BIG fan of blues for Christmas. I think these shades are so pretty! (Add some snowflake nail stickers for an extra flair!)

This shade of black is perfect for any outfit!

White, Glittery nail polish. Fresh, cute, and perfect for snowy days!

I’m an English junkie, so I absolutely love “Newspaper nails.” Per a friend who does this often, magazine and ad paper works well too! She did an entire nail polish ad on hers!

Hope you found some nail art inspiration! If not, find some and post a link to share with others below!
