5 on Friday- Valentine's Recap Edition!

Friday, February 20, 2015

I can't believe it is Friday already!  This week flew by! No complaining over here though...we have a busy but fun weekend ahead of us.  Always SO thankful for time with my husband and sweet kids!

I am linking up again with DarciApril and Natasha for Five on Friday!

I am also linking up with Andrea and Erika or their Friday Favorites Link Up!

Getting to spend time with my oldest daughter at her Valentine's Party this past week was definitely a FAVORITE part of my week. I love seeing her in her element and it was SO much fun to spend some special time with her!

We had a couple visitors this past weekend and it was definitely a FAVORITE thing to have people we love in our home! My dear friend from graduate school stopped by on her way to California (she is moving there!) and my parents came for a short visit.  We absolutely adore my parents and while they are only 3 1/2 hours away from us, we don't get to see them nearly as much as we would like because of my daughters' school schedule and my husband's crazy work schedule.  It was SO fun to have them at our house for a couple days!

These 4 nut balls are always my FAVORITES.  Even when everyone is having a simultaneously meltdown...they are still my favorites.  Being a mommy is hard, isn't it? But- it is absolutely the most beautiful and best gift I have ever been given.

My sweet husband and my girls made me chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate covered pretzels for my Valentine's gifts!  Two of my FAVORITE treats!  I love that my husband decided to make me a homemade treat and I love even more that he involved our girls in making them for me! They were SO excited to give me my treats! And they were soo YUMMY!

After I had my first daughter, my mom gave me a sweater that my dad wore when he was a toddler!  It is absolutely precious.  Each of my kiddos have worn in several times around Valentine's Day and it just makes me smile to think my babies are wearing the same sweater my dad did when he was little!

 Making this picture collage was definitely my FAVORITE thing about this Valentine's Day!

Happy Friday and I hope you have the best weekend!


  1. Stopping in from the link-up... First, let me say that I LOVE the name of your blog! People usually look at my 2 boys and joke about me having my hands full, but I always tell them that I'm so thankful that they are full and not empty... I wouldn't have it any other way! And that sweater is just too precious! What a wonderful family treasure. Have a great weekend!

  2. You have a beautiful family! Love the little sweater that was passed sweet!
