i've been mia + spring fever

things have been b.u.s.y. over here! ive been working long hours and any free time has been spent on the couch with my husband (...or catching up on reality tv! what can i say? i'm a sucker for anything on bravo!)

but since today is thursday, that means that the weekend starts tomorrow, and i don't know about you but i have been LIVING just for the weekends.  so i cannot wait!

the days have been dreary here lately.  but this morning i can see a blue sky and i just may need to pull out my sunnies so that is a plus!  i've been dreaming of warm weather & wearing bright colors.  here are some pieces that need to be in my closet now...

a light, polka dot dress

a bright, coral blouse

cuffed boyfriend jeans + blazer

pointed, leopard flats

mint skinnies

lavender skinnies

all white ensemble

striped blouse

thoughts on love

valentine's day is this thursday (duh!) and i couldn't be more excited.  i love love. and i love that there is a whole day dedicated to showing your love.  i think that people get busy, the to-do list builds up, and sometimes there really just isn't enough hours in the day.  so when valentine's day rolls around each year, it is the perfect excuse to throw the "busy" things to the side and appreciate the one you love! 

shawn and i always have an at home date night to celebrate v-day.  we grab a bottle of champagne and try a new recipe for dinner & dessert, too! i absolutely love putting on some good music, sipping on something yummy, and attempting to tackle a new recipe with my husband!   i can't wait!


happy valentine's .... enjoy!
