Sweet Valentine's + Decorating + Romancing the Hubbs

Valentine's Day is over, but I just wanted to share a few fun items I created this Valentine's Day with my little cutie and one I created on my own for my big cutie.




Easy breezy printable valentine's cards with m&m's for my daughters playgroup pals.





A fun little "romantic" picnic for the hubby after the little one went to bed. I'm not one to really celebrate Valentine's Day because it's a little cheesy to me, but when I saw this cute idea on the interwebs, I wanted to make it!




It was filled with wine, flutes, candles and tablecloth from the dollar store, a card, my ipod with speakers and a delectable treat for dessert.



The hubby also really appreciated it since it's usually TV and sweets time after the little one goes to bed. It was nice to just have some alone time, a glass of wine and chat before bed. It also wasn't over the top and didn't cost a fortune. ;o)




I also hung a "LOVE" banner from the fireplace for a few days in honor of Valentine's day.




And it wouldn't be Valentine's Day without a baked treat. ;o)
Tutorial here.





I hope your Valentine's Day was just as sweet.

Monochromatic Love Month

I'm addicted to the internet. There, I said it. In between taking care of my daughter, photo editing, party planning, laundry and the dishes, I'm constantly feeling the need to be visually stimulated. More than I think I need to be. I love surfing the interwebs and wishing that I could own all the pretty things I find on the internet in my home. I also get so many great ideas from so many different sources out there. Since I can't have everything I see on a daily basis, I thought I'd put together a fun Monochromatic board with eye popping goodies I find in relation to the month that we are in. I love seeing beautiful colors all in one place.

It's Valentine's month and I have seen nothing but pink all over the internet lately. I wanted to share some fun eye candy that I stumbled across over the past few weeks and have bookmarked. Enjoy checking it out and surfing!!
