How adorable is this pom pom hat <3
Not sure the pug is digging it

I  believe in fairy tales & every girl should own this print!

 Ice Cream in mason jars so fun

 Instead of ice cream trucks in our neighborhood I vote for this van of baguettes!

 I want to sleep in this luxouious room & I love the color palette soft and feminine

For Valentine's dinner the Hubby & I had reservations at BLT STEAK at the Camelback Inn.  What a great and happening spot.  We had fun cocktails & our favorite part of our meal was the popovers they bring to each table.  I think next time we might just eat at the bar and grab popovers, cocktails, and share one of their huge burgers!

We sat by the chalkboard wall covered in fun artwork which portrayed little stories
The Cowboy Killer cocktail(left)
The huge popovers served with butter & a sea salt shaker
The menu is a la carte & our dinner was served in mini cast iron dishes , I had the filet
We shared creamed spinach & wasabi mashed potatoes

All in all a great V-DAY celebration!

Picking out artwork is the hardest thing for me, I am really picky and not very experienced. I stumbled upon these prints and I am loving them all, the price is hard to beat too!  I have my eye on the first print for our dining room the color palette is perfect...going to sleep on it and see if I feel the same amount of  love tomorrow before I click purchase!  Enter Truffle10 @ checkout to get 10% off & free shipping!

Was surprised to wake up to this sweet puppy this morning, he is HUGE & I love him! He sat at the table with us for breakfast.

 Our Valentine's breakfast setting

The cinnamon bun waffles were a BIG hit with the hubby & they were super easy

Made a plate for Boo boo too he loved it, I'm also wearing my scarlett jeggings today <3

I also placed little heart stickers all around the house where the Hubby would most likely see them.  For example: the remote, his bathroom mirror, the alarm clock, light switches, etc... Just a little reminder of my love!

1. Picked up Steelcut Oatmeal from TJ's located in the freezer section, only 150 calories & a great way to start your morning.  It is slightly flavored with maple & brown sugar.
A single serving looks like this

2. New LuLu Lemon neon pink sports bra, love & highly recommend!

3. My Dad & I had stir fry night & it's such a filling, healthy, & fun meal to make together.  Lots of chopping so grab a friend, husband, sister, etc... and have a glass of wine, chat, & chop!
We added, brociflower, bean sprouts, carrots, peanuts, red bell pepper, garlic, onion, chicken, broccoli, and fresh ginger.
