Valentine’s day has looked a little different the last few years. There hasn’t been much going out to dinner and getting drinks as often as we used to, and sometimes with Valentine’s day falling in the middle of the week, it makes it that much harder. But we know that this is just a season in our lives that will eventually go away and we will miss these days, so, for now, we are enjoying sharing every second of this time with our girls… including Valentine’s day. And if it’s Valentine’s day with my girls, it’s obviously Galentine’s day.

This year with the holiday of love falling on a random Thursday we have a fun filled day full of crafts, candy, and preparing to make daddy’s favorite dinner. But just because we’re staying in doesn’t mean we can’t dress up!

Happy week of love, friends!

My Favorite Recent Target Purchases

Is there really anything better than a nice run to Target? If I was on my death bed and had one chance to see anywhere in the world, one last trip to Target would be at least top five places on my list. Maybe that sounds a bit morbid, but we are just getting off the Halloween train, so don’t judge me.

Last week I had a fabulous Target run and got all the things! Here are some of my favorite finds that I felt needed to be shared.

This chunky, comfy, cozy cardigan.

Apparently this cardigan has some great alliteration and can only be described with adjectives that start with the letter “C”. It is definitely chunky, comfy and cozy. In the last six days that I have owned this sweater I have worn it four of those days. The only reason I didn’t wear it one day was because I was Halloweening it as a unicorn (and we all know that unicorns definitely do NOT wear cardigans). The only reason I am not currently wearing it is because it is in my washing machine.

I will give you $100 if you can guess what I’ll be wearing tomorrow. You can then use $29.99 of that money to go buy yourself this cardigan.

Booties, booties, booties, booties rockin’ everywhere.

Talk about the cutest, comfiest booties on my feet. I have been dying to get a new pair of brown booties, but have not pulled the trigger because of how expensive so many pairs are. These were only $37.99! I thought I’d try them out to see if I liked them and then go back and order the black pair.

Well, I already purchased the black pair.

Doormat….(s)

Over the summer I purchased a doormat from Target that said “Welcome” with a pineapple on it. It was cute for summer, but didn’t seem to fit with this chilly, fall weather. I bought this colorful, leaf doormat (above) for only $10.99. Such a cute autumn touch for such a cheap price.

Then I thought to myself, “Hmmm. I really like this for fall, but I bet I’m going to want another one for winter”. We now have a doormat for every season thanks to Target.

Clothes for the baby.

I’ve always loved Target for myself, and now I get to love it for my daughter too. They always have the sweetest clothes at the best prices. I bought my daughter not only one, but two nice sweatshirts for only $7.00 each, and black leggings that were only $5.00.

Once again, Target for the win.

My Daughter’s Nursery is 50 Shades of Gray, But I Love It

After posting previous pictures of my daughter and I in her nursery I received a few comments and messages about the shades of gray and for a deeper look into her nursery.

I was joking with a friend that her nursery was “50 shades of gray” because of all the gray we had in one picture. Although her walls are gray along with a few other items in the room, we also added a clean white look as well. Here is a better look into her bright nursery, and links to some of the products we’ve purchased for it.

I love my daughter’s room. It is probably my favorite room in the house. It is freshly painted, and super bright. We love spending time in there playing and reading. I’m so happy with all of the products that we’ve chosen to create this perfect little space for her.

Walls: Sherwin Williams– Colonial Revival Gray. The paint came out lighter than I expected, which actually made me like it even more than I originally did.

Crib: Target– I love my daughters crib. It’s bright, pretty and perfect for her room. We knew with gray walls we wanted white furniture to brighten it up, and it did just that. This particular crib that we purchased is a four in one convertible crib that we will transition her with as she gets older.

Crib Sheet: Walmart– this is just one of the few crib sheets we have for her. I also love the look of this pink crib sheet with the gray and white walls and trim. It brings a fun pop of pink color to the room.

Rug: IKEA 

Banner: Made by my talented mother-in-law

(My outfit details:)

Sweater: ROMWE

Leggings: ModCloth

Rocker: Ikea– This rocker has been the perfect little rocker for late nights or before nap feedings. It’s comfortable and it’s easy to set a bottle down on the arm without having to set it on the ground.

Baby Rocker: Homegoods– she loves this thing, and it’s adorable!

Rug: IKEA

Butterfly Art: Pottery Barn Kids

Elephant Art: Homegoods

Hamper: Homegoods– You can always count on Homegoods for cute hampers!

Before having Margot I was told it’s easier to use a changing pad on top of the dresser instead of getting an entire changing table for the nursery. This was some of the best advice we received because I have no idea where on earth we would have put the changing table.

When I change my daughter I set her right on top of her changing pad on this dresser. The dresser is at the perfect height to change her so I don’t have to worry about reaching up too high or bending down and hurting my back. The top left drawer is completely filled with diapers and wipes since she doesn’t have enough clothes to fill all the drawers anyway. The diaper changing process has been so easy for us because of this set up.

Dresser: Walmart

Changing Pad: Target

Changing Pad Cover: Target– this is not the exact one I have, but it’s very close and I love the plush feeling.

Sound Machine: Target

Lamp: Walmart

Frame: Homegoods– someone gave this to us as a gift, and they did say they got the frame from Homegoods. I find myself always looking at this because I just think it is so adorable!

This mini shelf from Homegoods has been so helpful. We sometimes keep the baby monitor on this shelf and point it at the crib, which is convenient. Most days I hang her outfit for the following day on a little hook, and it’s a great place to store different headbands as well.

Headbands: Target

We were originally going to get a bookshelf that could store some bins in it, but never ended up actually buying it. Although we still plan to purchase it in the future I’m glad we didn’t jump the gun and get one right away. Having these storage bins full of toys on the ground has been an easy access for her to grab a toy and play. She’s got stuffed animals, books and other toys such as blocks and toy balls that we keep in these bins. When we play in her nursery she digs out all sorts of stuff, and when we’re finished it’s a quick and easy cleanup.

Mermaid: Target

Bins: Babies R’ Us- Bin 1, Bin 2 (I can no longer find links for Bin’s 3 and 4, but we also have Bin 5 in her closet)

Elephant: TJMaxx

Toys: I’ve linked some of Margot’s favorite toys that are shoved inside of those bins

My favorite thing about her nursery is that everything has a purpose. I’m glad we kept it simple, even if it is 50 shades of gray.
