Earlier this month I shared my Valentine’s Day decor, (you can see 2014 here) but I’m always on the lookout for new ideas and new ways to display what I’ve already have. Gotta love Pinterest for this exact reason! I may not have the exact same items as these talented bloggers and designers, but I can learn from their placement etc. That’s exactly what I think Pinterest is all about, gleaning inspiration and learning from other people with like minds. Here’s a group of gorgeous Valentine’s Day decorations from some seriously talented people. Enjoy.

Like most kids, my kids like to receive gifts anytime. However, I am thankful that they also enjoy giving gifts. This upcoming holiday is a perfect time to offer a sweet sentiment to the people that add so much fun, value, and excitement to my kids lives. We are very lucky to have two sets of grandparents that love my kids as their own. We are also lucky to have so many amazing teachers involved in their education. This is why I am constantly on the lookout for some really fun Valentine’s gifts for teachers and grandparents. I’ve got a round-up of 7 Grandparents gifts and 7 teachers gifts.

Our boobs are very dear to our hearts. <—–See what I did there? Over the years, they’ve gotten us attention, fed our children, made our swimsuits stay in place, and are always a good time. If yours are anything like mine, they’ve had quite the evolution of growth and, unfortunately, shrinkage leaving me constantly in search of the best fitting over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder for the latest state of my girls. It drives me crazy! All I really want are a sizable set of twins that look happy and stand alone. Is that too much to ask? Sometimes when I take my bra off I feel like I hear the old “wah, wah” sound effect.
The other day, it struck me that I really needed the Best Bra Buying Guide in my life. I was wearing a bra from Target that was probably 6 years old. It had misshapen cups, squeaked when I moved my arms (WTH?), and had a gap in one cup (Ahhh, the joys of having kids). Sounds like a real beaut, amIright? It had been far too long since I’d bought any “good” bras. There really is nothing better than the best fitting bra. It can make your whole day better. So I went to the store, got fitted, and tried some about 25. I left $60 lighter but way perkier than when I went in to the store. Finally, my best bra!
Here’s a roundup of tips and tricks from Pinterest that add up to the Best Bra Buying Guide. You can follow my Fashion Board here or see all my boards here.
Are you doing the Meatless Monday thing? Maybe you’re getting a jumpstart on your summer slim down or maybe you’re like my hubby – just trying to add more vegetables in to your diet. No matter what you’ve got going on, if you’re like me, you probably need more ideas for family dinner. Here’s my fave 7 meatless Monday reipes from Pinterest. I don’t actually do the meatless Monday think on Monday, it really depends on the day of the week, the time I have to prep and cook, and my mood. These 7 meatless Monday Ideas have really given me some new mealtime material.

Next Friday I will be hosting my FIRST EVER CAbi party. I’ve loved the clothes for many years now and always pick up at least one item at every party I go to. CAbi stand for Carol Anderson by invitation, she started the company long ago after working as a designer at some pretty big name companies like Nordstrom’s. CAbi releases two full lines annually with some “Limited Editions” or late season releases as well. Anyway, the price point can be kinda high (that’s why I try to spread out my purchases throughout the season), but the quality is always worth the price tag. At my first ever CAbi party almost five years ago, I bout a pair of their Ponte Knit leggings in black. I’m wearing them while typing this post. Yep, they have lasted through wash after wash after wash and they are not see through at all! Anyway, I thought I would show you some pretty cute items from their fall line that I am currently coveting.
There’s a crispness in the air and the leaves are starting to turn vibrant colors. That can only mean one thing… Thanksgiving is coming! I think it’s important to really feel the sentiment of the season. Explain it to your kids and start spreading that attitude of gratitude. Today’s Pinterest round-up includes some great projects and ideas to get your thankful juices flowing.

So, the forecast is being a spooktacular buzzkill on Halloween calling for showers. Lame! I know we need the rain, I do. But I also know that my kiddos will be tremendously disappointed if they don’t get to go door to door. In honor of this totally uncool forecast, I’ve scared up some tips for those who still want to brave the weather and some events for those who don’t. The bottom line: get prepared for the weather TODAY!
