With the day of love right around the corner and wedding season not too far off I thought it would be a good time to share something I've been meaning to for a while. When Derek and I were engaged I wanted anything and everything Mr. & Mrs. and His & Hers. It was such fun to use at that time and to this day I'm still a sucker for it. These items make the best little addition to a wedding/engagement gift or even just a gift for a couple or a gift from husband to wife.
Mr. & Mrs.
The glasses (tall version) are used quite frequently around our house and we actually still have the Mr. & Mrs. towels on one of our towel rods in the master bath for decoration. Had the Mr. & Mrs. balloons of been out when we were getting married, I would have most definitely used them for something.
His & Hers
I love these items because they can be great for any couple. I have a weak spot for cute luggage tags as well as wine glasses (just check out our cabinets and you'll see). I think the pillows would be a great addition to any home.
His and Hers for Valentine's Day
Originally we were going to lay off the Valentine's gifts since we're heading out of town shortly after the holiday but as things got closer and everyone was getting hyped up on the day, we changed our minds BUT kept things focused on spring, thinking ahead and possibly thinking pink to stay in theme instead of getting a gift just to get a gift. It's the perfect chance to get a little something special you've been eyeing without going crazy.
pink pair and why not consider a matching clutch? Lilly Pulitzer wine glasses always make the perfect little gift (especially with newly released patterns) as does a DIY pedi system so you don't always have to go to the salon (and possibly have been eying for a while).
Valentine's Day shopping for a guy is always harder I feel but luckily mine isn't opposed to the bright colors AND picked up the Valentine's Day vineyard vines shirt himself at the mall while I was in a different section so I guess it's not too much. These bathing suits Derek swears by and yes, they are all as bright as this one. Any holiday is a good excuse for a Vineyard Vines shirt especially with a new season on the horizon. Some reading material would be there perfect little gift for the upcoming trip or just because.
Sponsor Spotlight: A Little Bit of Emily
I'm also excited to share a new sponsor today, Emily from A Little Bit of Emily. She's shared some delicious recipes like mini quiches (my favorite!) and chocolate coated buttercreams - yum! You can find out a little bit more about her posting style here where she shared her top five reader picks.
Favorite food: My all-time favorite food is my mom's spaghetti. Growing up, she made her own sauce and it was (and still is) the best thing ever! I now make it myself, and I always try to make sure to have some on hand for whenever I am craving spaghetti.
Place I want to travel: Greece or Italy...gorgeous scenery and amazing food! State-side, I would love to check out the East Coast.
Favorite cocktail: Margarita, on the rocks, no salt
Favorite TV shows: Way too many to count, but right now Madam Secretary and Modern Family. Friday Night Lights will always be a favorite, too.
Favorite store: Nordstrom or Loft
Favorite sports team: I grew up loving the Chicago teams, but after living in St. Louis for a few years, I am slowly becoming a Cardinals fan.
Favorite holiday: Thanksgiving. I used to think Christmas, but I decided this year that Thanksgiving is my all-time favorite. I love that Thanksgiving is all about family and good food. It kicks off the start of the Christmas season, which is my favorite time of the year.
Yum, margaritas are a favorite of mine too - but with the salt and going to Greece? Yes please! I hope everyone enjoyed getting to know a little bit about Emily and make sure to stop by her blog to say hello.
