Valentine Prep

 I have to be honest...I am currently exhausted (on a side note, please ignore my horrible bangs I am trying to grow out and can rarely do anything with them).  I think the term "bit off more than I could chew" would definitely apply.  I can't even tell you everything thing I am trying to plan/get ready for and when I get this overwhelmed I just want to sit down and do nothing...which definitely wouldn't be helpful.
 Valentine's Day is a pretty wild holiday for our family as it is my husband's birthday and I tend to go overboard on holidays as a general rule.  This week we are celebrating my husband's birthday week with all of the things he loves.  I like that idea because it is a bit hard to share your birthday with another holiday.

I am also planning a Valentine's tea on Saturday (so excited for that one) with my boys and some cousins and a little Valentine's day cookie decorating party tomorrow with the boys and some friends.  I just can't resist a party or fun idea, but honestly...its a bit much this year.  At least I can admit it, I think my husband would be proud :)
 These are the Valentine's that I made for my boys this year.  I always like to make my boys' valentines and thanks to Pinterest there are good ideas all over the place (Valentine's from years past here, here).  The things they are holding like "light sabers" are glow bracelets.  I think its probably okay if we forgo the candy this year.
 Blouse: Old Navy (maybe I shouldn't tell you that I have 6 of these shirts in different colors) | Skirt: Loft | Boots: Aldo | Bag: Ross
