A few weeks ago it was cold and cloudy and even rained once or twice. I was going a little stir crazy after being inside with a baby all week so we decided to head out on an adventure. We drove up the coast a ways and discovered some nearby beach towns we’d never really visited before. And even though it was cold and felt like our one week of winter, it was such a fun day.
Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s 2018, I honestly feel like I just graduated college and was celebrating NYE 2008. But now here I am 10 years later married, with a baby, dressing up in a sequin off the shoulder top on my blog on a Tuesday.
A few months ago six of my mother-in-law’s friends threw me a baby shower – you may remember this post about what I wore. I know how much work goes into hosting a shower and I wanted to put something together to thank them for all of it. I came up with this shower themed basket and had fun buying all the pink shower and bath things. I also lucked out – this shower was a few weeks before Valentine’s Day and I was able to find candy with pink packaging. Best time of the year to have a girl!
I’ve been all about the color pink lately… with a baby girl due soon and Valentine’s Day on the horizon I just can’t help it! Valentine’s Day is such a fun little day. Even if you don’t celebrate it in a romantic way, it’s still nice to buy a little something for yourself or a friend. Years ago I went to a fun anti-Valentine’s Day party at a bar in LA with a group of girlfriends and it was honestly one of my favorite memories of the holiday. That and back in elementary school when we’d get dressed up, pass out Valentine’s and have parties in our classrooms.
Now that I’m old and married I wanted to share a fun little gift guide I put together.
I also wanted to share some gift ideas for the guys…
And of course, I can’t forget the babies. Here are my favorites…
Hope you’re having a great week – thanks for stopping by!
In case you couldn’t tell, I’m all about pink lately! It’s always been one of my favorite colors but who knows if this baby girl will even like it. 🙂 I know it’s only mid January but I’m already thinking ahead to next month. February is always a fun month because of Valentine’s Day. When it comes to dressing, I love a pink dress for Valentine’s Day. This one is maternity but ASOS has tons of non-maternity options here.
