Five on Friday: Valentine's Day Prep


I'm linking up with The Good Life today for another installment of Five on Friday!

I love Valentine's Day so much! I feel like I need to move on to it pretty quickly because I have even more important things going on in February--namely, celebrating the birthdays of BOTH of my children.

I've already started doing a little decorating around the house and am thinking of arts and crafts for the kids (ok, Jack) to do. I'm searching Pinterest for fun (easy) valentines, and I'm excited just over the prospect of all the happy pink cookies I plan on eating making. Easy recipes here and here.

But today I've been doing a little shopping to outfit the fam in Valentine colors!

I got an e-mail from Old Navy earlier this week, and this scarf kept me from deleting it immediately. It would wear well into spring and summer, as well as February 14th.


Striped infinity jersey scarf

This would be perfect for my sweetie girl. To Valentine it up, I'd have it monogrammed in red, and I'd pair it with Valentine tights that I bought her while she was still in the womb last year. Tights are so easy (for me) for her since she can't pull them off. That girl takes her socks off faster than I put them on. A regular sock Houdini.


Mix striped dress from GAP

OK, so maybe you can spot (or stripe) a trend here. I think this says "Happy Valentine's Day" well without being over the top. I feel like my little man is past the age of monogrammed clothes for holidays. Boohoo. This would coordinate with Sister, in a non-matchy sort of way.


Polo by Ralph Lauren Cotton Long-sleeve T

Bringing it back to Mama for a little bit, this option is so cute, and on sale! It reminds me a little bit of a J. Crew heart sweater I missed out on buying while I was pregnant.


Halogen Crew Neck Sweater

And just because 'tis the season. I would wear these in a heartbeat. (See what I did there?)

    1. I found a similar small pair of sunglasses for my daughter. If she would only keep them on her face, that would make for some cute Valentine pics!!!

  8. Your picks are all so cute! That dress with a monogram and valentine's tights might be the cutest thing ever, but I am especially loving that giant heart sweater and wondering if I can figure out a way to wear it to work on Feb. 14th without being too over the top?! Happy weekend!

  10. Get your fantasies stirred up in advance of Valentines Day. The authors of the best-selling book CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE celebrate the first anniversary of the book's release by giving fans a FREE E-BOOK version during a 1-day promotion on Valentines Day February 14, 2014, beginning at 12:01 am. Simply visit Amazon's Kindle site and download the Kindle edition of the book to any device. You can't help falling in love with the unforgettable Allison Webster romance that also sizzles through authors Carol Dunitz' and David Menefee's continuation, COME AWAY TO PARADISE.

    What do a hit song, a hep singer, and a hot fried peanut butter and banana sandwich have in common? For stunningly attractive Allison Webster, struggling to make a name in the glitzy advertising world, they spell infatuation and desire. They are the first notes in the love song she hears when she can’t help falling in love with her King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. When the Memphis Mafia rudely invades her affair with the most eligible bachelor in the country, no one can tell which way the records will spin. Singer, songwriter, actor, and author Carol Dunitz and Pulitzer-nominated author David W. Menefee lay down the tracks in this unforgettable romance that's topping the charts as the year’s most musical love story.
