Ryan's parents arrived on Friday and we've been enjoying their company as well as the free babysitting! Ryan and I had so much time just the two of us this weekend that it felt like dating again...only we weren't poor and our conversations were less "after you finish grad school..." and more "this kid is going to kill us, but isn't she great?".
I had a lady date Saturday and topped that off with margaritas and tacos with my Valentine. Liv scooted around the neighborhood until her grandparents collapsed and we all took it easy on Sunday.
Jamie and I went to brunch and then shopping, where I grabbed some new cereal bowls at Anthropologie (4 for $20!) and they were serving up champagne and cupcakes. Hells yes.
As a side note, this printed dress from Old Navy was a recent find and I got loads of compliments on it when I wore it. It's perfect for wearing with wedges (like I did for brunch) but perfectly casual with flats (which I changed into for shopping). Their whole site is on sale now, so it's a great time to grab this one!
And a nerd note on the shoes - they're the exact shoes Kate Middleton wears all the time and they're flipping half off. They're called the Pied a Terre Imperia wedge, they're crazy comfortable, go with everything, and are pretty limited for size and color so don't wait!
I kept them on and switched to jeans and a comfy piko top for my super fancy Valentine's dinner since they allow my stomach to expand as needed. Priorities.
Sundays I have a nice little routine of coffee, getting fresh flowers, getting a mani or pedi if I feel like I need one, and then being super lazy. It's Sunday bun-day or nothing at all.
Ryan and I also got out for crepes Sunday morning which was a nice treat and then we spent a low key afternoon with Liv while his parents explored Houston.
Last week we did a great Valentine's card exchange with some of our favorite blogger friends and Olivia not only loved making the cards, but now she's obsessed with snail mail like her mother. We'd make daily runs down the road to our mailbox and she'd have a little card waiting each day, which she thought was about the coolest thing ever. You can see the cards we made below, as well as the ones our friends sent us!
Thanks, everyone for the sweet snail mail!
