heart day!

according to the united states of america i am supposed to be watching the Super Bowl right now.
but i have been to so many games in the last three days that i could literally NOT care one tiny bit.
i saw that beyonce forgot her pants again this year and that was plenty.
so instead i crawled into my warm cozy bed and wrote a post about Valentine’s gifts.

we don’t celebrate valentine’s too much over here.
we just haven’t ever made it a big deal?  i have no reason for this.
but this year… it’s kind of inched it’s way into my head.
i am thinking about baking cookies and heart garlands and all the valentines-y goodies.
i started making a little list of fun valentine’s gifts or just fun stuff in reds & pinks and the list got out of control!
it’s a long one.
maybe you should show this post to your significant other…    🙂
it couldn’t hurt right?!
i found so much cute stuff out there that would be perfect for gifts!
for friends or family or spouses or boyfriend/girlfriend or your kids or even a gift for yourself!



i thought this 3-Piece Melamine Mixing Bowl Set was really cute!

i am BIG fan of cozy robes.
this Spa Collection Plush Robe came in lots of colors… and it’s not too short either!


For the Love: Fighting for Grace in a World of Impossible Standards

my favorite book of the summer by far!
i bought 6 more copies for friends!

how cute it this Tartan Wrap Plaid Shawl Blanket Scarf ??



i would love to have a pair of Toms Classic Red Canvas shoes!


these Colorful Rain Boots from Target are FUN!


i am pretty much HEAD OVER HEELS in love with these shoes!
i doubt there is a more perfect shoe for me.



Sweet Love Body CreamFragrance Mist Spray Body Wash
you can also find this at walmart or your grocery store      🙂
this smells good (and don’t tell but all my daughters are getting this for valentines.)


56425_1this Lisa Leonard’s Heart Necklace is a favorite of mine.


this I Love You More Coffee Mug  made me smile.
i know it’s not red or pink but it’s SO CUTE in the yellow!


Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker
the name of this perfume is perfect for valentines!
and i am a SJP fan – ever since Footloose.


everyone needs a Heart Shaped Waffle Maker!!
this is probably my favorite thing on the whole list!
how fun are heart shaped waffles?!
what a special Valentine’s Day breakfast that would be!


Emoji Smiley Emoticon Pillow  – silly but yet… i like this.
i would say it would be great for the kids but i probably use more emojis than they do.


Watercolor Pencils  to color in a very pretty coloring book!
i have this one…Whatever Is Lovely: A Coloring Book
it is filled with quote and verses!
i love it!



i love this 1st Corinthians print from Lindsay Letters!
i’m thinking of hanging this in our bedroom.
everyone needs reminders right?
“does not demand it’s way”  “is not irritable”  “keeps no record of wrongs”
yeah… reminders are good.


Pink Hair Dryer
this would be a practical and colorful gift!


2294946Maybelline Lip Gloss Palette
i think MY makeup bag needs this!

i thought these prints were cute & unique… Hippo With Hearts Octopus Love Giraffe Love


everybody loves a hello sweatshirt!
hey had a few shirts with hearts as well but the classic always wins for me.    🙂

81tlB4W+o2L._SL1500_ my girls would go bonkers if i got them the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera
i just love those cameras!


every single thing from Katie Daisy’s shop is beautiful.
she had two full pages of prints about love!


i liked these simple and sweet night gowns from Forever21.


and i LOVED these super cute red jeans from GAP!
these are in my cart.
they are too fun!!

and what’s Valentine’s Day without a good love story?!!

i know what you are thinking… what about for the boys in our life?
i did some searching and thinking about what would be liked at my house…

Nike socks are always a hit at our house.
these were all at Kohls.


1346974_Gym_Red_White As well as Nike Basketball Shorts.
this style is my favorite… a classic.


pDSP1-21671906p275wthis Under Armour Shirt would be a great gift for a dude.



Papa John’s Pizza Gift Card would be the biggest hit at my house!



Trivia Crack Board Game!!
my kids love this app on their phone but if we had the board game we could play together!



there has been all kinds of talk about smoking meat over here.
none by me.
so i am thinking this book A Meat-Smoking Manifesto would be a good gift!


Star Wars mugs are fun!
A New Hope            Storm Trooper               Darth Vader                 Luke Skywalker Rebel Pilot

pjs (1)

how could you go wrong with Super Soft Flannel Pajama Pants?


and lastly….
Fandango Gift Card or an AMC Theatre Gift Card
because everyone likes to go to the movies!


Whitni - I sent the links for the coloring book and pencils to my husband and said “for my birthday” and I just got an email confirming my order from Amazon haha. I’ve been dying for an adult coloring book ever since they were everywhere at Christmas but I kept telling myself I didn’t have time. I have a 22 month old toddler and a 2.5 week old newborn. But I figure, eventually I will have time to myself again right? Someday? Too bad I can’t color and breastfeed at the same time, I’d rather do that than watch Netflix at 2am!

Lisa - I don’t normally do much for Valentine’s Day but this list was fun to look through! You found some great stuff!

sharon / tpt - major awesome wish list! (i give heart wafflemakers for wedding gifts. it’s da’best!) i’m partial to that double heart necklace. also, add Hope Floats to the must have vDay movies??

(love your blog, as always~)

Morgan - I am a fan of Vday, but more so just in a general sense of letting people know how much they are loved. I do enjoy the decor and baking treats and all that too. 🙂 I love the gift ideas!

Amy - Love this gift list!!

Teyonce - First of all, buy me those shoes..and the mug. The movie list makes me want to stay in my jammies and watch them all right this second. And, I had NO IDEA trivia crack had a board game, my family would love that. I like this list. and you. as more than a friend.

Jodie R. - I am considering the fuji camera–but I have 2 girls…I’m leaning towards having them share…bad idea?

Kari - Ha, ha, ha! Beyonce forgot her pants. I LOVE that. I am about over Beyonce. I love all your picks! But, what I love even more is seeing all the colors shining off my monitor.

Beth Ann - “i saw that beyonce forgot her pants again this year” hahaha – so true! My 8 & 9 year old kiddos were very uncomfortable with beyonce missing her pants and moving the way she did. props to her for her amazing body and the ability to dance the way she can, but not really family friendly. i am glad you called out her missing pants, I thought maybe I was being to big of a prude.

Kathie W. - My husband is a BBQer, smoker and competitor…I got him Aaron Franklin’s book A Meat-Smoking Manifesto for our anniversary (in January) and he is LOVING it…I have yet to be able to enjoying anything from the book, but I know it is coming soon! Great choice.

kristin - Love your blog and all of your suggestions!
