Love is in the Air

Oh my goodness!  This meme made me LOL.

Ryan, you’re our favorite.  Those “Hey Girl” memes get me EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Do you guys know what’s in only SEVEN DAYS?!


I thought I’d share a round up of Valentine’s Day related things to get you in the spirit.

If anyone is needing a little inspiration for a Valentine Box, check out this post.  Marla (my mother-in-law is a professional when it comes to v-day boxes.  I’ve gotta be honest.  Marla was out of town and I grabbed Hobby Lobby pre-made boxes with a little dog and girly alien to decorate.  It took us all of four minutes to whip those boxes out.  But…if you’re feeling inspired, this post will help.

I teamed up with some bloggers last year to bring you some Valentine’s Day cheer.  My responsibility was the dessert.  This Strawberry Pretzel Dessert will not disappoint!

And I thought I’d share a few Valentine’s Day goodies I have my eyes on for the loves in my life…

*A few other options but for some reason these pictures would not cooperate.  All from Gap and all on sale (when I wrote this post).

*A few other options not pictured…

Hope this post helped you get a little inspired in the Valentine’s Day department.

Don’t forget TOMORROW Shay and I are hosting another Workin’ It Wednesday.  We’re sharing how we work on our marriage.  I hope you join us.

    I made the strawberry pretzel dessert last year and failed miserably, haha. I bake all the time but this one just didn't turn out. The strawberry mixture just made the whole thing a soup. We couldn't even eat it. So bummed!
