Friday, we're in LOVE

I couldn't help but do a little flashback Friday to our Valentine's babe last year (2014)... it seemed appropriate considering the fact that it IS Valentine's weekend :) Sometimes I think Mia has grown faster than I ever gave her permission for (ha!) and other times I think, "she's still my baby! She hasn't grown too much...." Then I see these photos from one year ago and almost fall off my chair. Goodness, she has grown and changed so much in one short year!
Eric works tomorrow (lame!) so we will be celebrating Valentine's a little later than everyone else... I mean, as much as we celebrate Valentine's Day. Basically we will be giving Mia her gift a little later ;) ha ha! But I do have a fun little "Galentine's" date planned for Mia and I, and I plan on ending the day by stuffing my face full of these homemade oreos. Get in mah belllllllay!
P.S. We aren't ones for celebrating Valentine's by going out on an extravagant, romantic date... in fact, even when Eric isn't working, we avoid going out because hangry + Valentine crowds don't mix ;) But I don't want to downplay Eric's sweet gestures. Even though he's been working like crazy, he has surprised his girls each night with a sweet little somethin' to make Valentine's week extra special for us! We are the luckiest to have him!
P.P.S. I haven't done a discount code in awhile and since I love love, I thought this would be the perfect weekend to offer you all 50% off any ad space! Be sure to enter the code "lovebug" to receive half off the ad of your choice!
We hope you all have the happiest Valentine's Day! Our little love bug loves you all!! :)
I mean, are you kidding me right now?! My heart just exploded!

Hangry+Valentine's crowds do NOT mix. We try and do something special and avoid the crowds, because it's just not worth it. Who wants to be in a bad mood when you're supposed to be celebrating "love"?? Glad you guys are doing your something special with Mia when you all can be there! Altho super bummer that he has to work :(
Hope you have a sweet and love-filled weekend!!

Love the cute blog title. And of course, the super cute Mia picture. I'm not a fan of the crowds either. I also don't like the pressure, too many women expect too much without filling in their guy. That's silly!

Sounds like your Galentine's weekend will be fun. I'll be having a Galentine's with Lynn, yay!

<3 you dear friend!

Flashback to Mia last year.. I die! That sweet little smile?!?! I'm in love!
And you know what, we're not really doing anything for Valentine's Day this year either, but celebrating by doing our Feb date a little late. I don't like going out to dinner when there are a million people going out also so we almost never celebrate on the day with an outing to a restaurant. Crowds and hungry don't mix... like you said!
Hope you have the BEST Valentine's weekend!

Baby Mia.. SO SWEET! and we usually do low-key too! Especially with 2 babes now!

Nina Robinson said...

Homemade oreos, what??! Sounds delish! And those flashback pics of Mia are adorable. It's crazy looking back a year ago, I was just doing the same with Ez and I can't believe how different he looks.

Chris and i just wait and celebrate the fact that candy is 50% off. :) Speaking of "Galentines" you going to the AZ blogger meet up?? You're in az blogger now. :)

Lauren said...

we went out to dinner last night and we'll probably just the take the girls out for Mexican tomorrow night...because once you have kids, every holiday is about them too! What are you doing for your galentines date? Pedicures maybe?!? so fun!

Sara McCarty said...

Yep. She's adorable!!! Love this holiday!

She's so cute! Not to be a downer... I don't really care for Valentine's Day. I don't like getting "stuff" for valentine's and would rather spend it making memories... :)

Valentine's crowds are my least favorite! Insanity. No thanks. Feed me now.

We are celebrating late too! We had a romantic dinner last night, but the real celebration is in Mobile tomorrow! We have our specialist appointment in Mobile Tuesday, so Will figured we'd maximize it and catch some Mardi Gras fun. I hope you guys enjoy every minute, but with that gorgeous little nugget and all that you have to celebrate I have no doubt ;) Saw your cousin's news too. ;)

Mia, STOP IT! Seriously, it doesn't even matter what age she is apparently. Her little smile just makes my day! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
