Looks & Life Lately

Family time.  Can spring hurry up already?? I'm loving that each night it's a smidge lighter than the night before but we're still battling the winter laziness over here.


Last Thursday we had our first snow day of the year! We were both home from work, did the classic grilled cheese/tomato soup for lunch and enjoyed the break in the week.


Loving all the fresh flowers and displays that are out and about for Valentine's Day recently - everything is so festive and pretty.


My mom invited us all over and cooked us a delicious meal to celebrate Valentine's Day early - the food was fantastic and she had the table set so cute with a little treat for everyone.


And of course, last night we celebrated - very simply.  Pizza and catching up on our DVR shows - the perfect relaxing Tuesday night.  Chocolate covered strawberries with some more chocolate treats (that were dug into pretty quickly) made their way home with Derek while he got a tower of his favorite beer - simple and easy! We'll probably go out somewhere this weekend but this was a great weeknight treat.  Derek and my stepdad both sent over flowers and I love having the fresh blooms around to brighten up the house.  Of course I had to celebrate my galentine, Stella, with a few new pink toys.

  10. As much as I don't miss the cold and the snow after moving south, I do miss the random snow days. It's so nice to have a random day off, and be snuggled up at home <3

  13. Low-key Valentine's Days are sometimes so fun! I love that your step-dad sent you flowers; that's really sweet of him. And, I'm longing for a snow day around here...we haven't had one in three years and I'm hoping next year will be it. ;)

  17. Love your mom's sweet Valentine surprise. My dad used to always send my sister and me our own Valentines that he specifically picked out. It would also have a surprise in it. I definitely miss that the most - because it was one of those special things that he did just to remind us how much he loved us.

    Love the low key Valentine's Day. Perfect celebration in my mind.

  19. Sounds like my Valentine's evening. We had pizza and watched Netflix. Was the beer good? I looked it up and wanted to know before I bought it.
