Happy Valentine’s Day!! I hope you all feel extra loved today! We don’t have anything too crazy on the agenda for tonight but hopefully pizza somewhere yummy! Nothin’ fancy, but sometimes simple is the best, right!? This weekend we are going to Branson to celebrate US! & I can’t wait! This is the first trip we have ever taken with just the two of us, no friends, no kids, no dogs so I am beyond looking forward to it! Hopefully the weekend is filled with love for all of you too! Even if you aren’t in love with a significant someone, you can always love yourself, your friends or your family.
Growing up my Uncle Buddy use to make every holiday special by doing a little something. Valentine’s day somehow was always my favorite! It didn’t have to be anything big like a dozen roses (because lets be honest roses are insanely pricey on this day) or an expensive gift but he always had something! Rather it was a card, a piece of candy, a small teddy bear, he always knew how to make my day! Not only did I love the special things he did for me, I loved that he always made the day special for my aunt. Every year he got her the same thing and I loved asking her every year if she got her dozen roses, her favorite chocolate and her card. Without fail she always said Yes with a smile! (I think she told me that he never missed a year.) I always find it interesting the things you take from your childhood into your adulthood and/or the lessons you have learned from your past to make your present better and this little will always be apart of me! I will always do a little something for the people I love because I remember so much how it made me feel! So thanks Uncle Buddy!! 🙂 Besides Valentine’s Day lets jump into things I am loving this week!
Things I am Loving Friday!
- Just Jessie Jessie James Decker’s Book
Last week I was searching the library for something good to read and as always I stared with the autobiography or the biography section. I honestly didn’t know much about Jessie but I liked the cover of the book, so I got it! I ended up really loving it. I was shocked when I read how much she was bullied as a kid and how it effected her. Poor girl! I also loved reading about how her relationship is with her husband! They seem very sweet and so much in love and it makes my heart happy!
2. Aldi Sweet Red Wine
On Tuesday, I went to Aldi like I do every Tuesday because I love to see what new Aldi finds they put out and I ran across this wine! I couldnt pass it up for less than $5 and I am glad I did because it was really good! It is sweet but not too sweet!
3. Cute little Flower Pot
Another Aldi find! How adorable is this flower and flower pot! I bought one for my desk at school and it adds a little pop and homey feel! I love it!
3. Coca Cola Energy
Not going to lie I am not an energy drink kind of person, but this was really good and it gave me just the right amount of energy when I was crashing around 1:30pm! I think it taste sweeter than regular coke but I like sweet so it didn’t bother me! I must say that its probably not the healthiest but every once in a while it could be a nice pick me up!
I hope you all have a great Valentine’s Day & a great weekend!
