Things I Am Loving for Valentine's Day

I'm not REALLY big into Valentine's Day, but I think its fun to surprise my hubby with thoughtful little gifts.  Some years I spend more than others. It all really depends on if I have a good idea for him or not. Men can be so difficult to buy for on a lovey dovey day. I'm not really into buying silk boxers or something like that, and I don't think Jeff would be into receiving them either.

Last year, I bought Jeff a printed canvas from Patty Leeper's Etsy shop. I used an engagement photo of ours and put song lyrics and Bible verses from our wedding ceremony in the background.  I love how it turned out, but we still need to hang it!  Although I'm sure he thought it was a thoughtful gift, I wonder now if that was something I liked more than Jeff did. 

I haven't had any good ideas this year.  Anytime you ask Jeff what he wants, he says something to do with electronics.  I'm all for giving a guy what he wants, but come on!  One day he told me about this great deal on some really nice earbuds.  I told him he didn't need them and only used earbuds when he was snowblowing anyway.  Then, I went and ordered them.  Only to find out two weeks later that his dad bought him some different ones after Jeff told him about them! Argh!  But, he hasn't gotten the best of me yet.  I came across a couple of good finds today, and they will be at my office in no time! (I'll have to mention what they are a different time, just in case Jeff decides to read this blog ever.)

Anyway, my expectations for the Hallmark holiday aren't too great and I don't put any pressure on Jeff to buy me stuff, but I am a girl who loves to shop! So, I thought I'd share the things I'm loving these days.

Love this chevron printed bath rug.  I wrecked ours in the wash a couple of months ago, and its been driving me crazy that I haven't replaced it yet.

Ok. The pants look like they're riding up here a bit. I would not wear them this way. :)  I thought these were cute pj's that can be used during maternity and for nursing. 

Holister So Cal perfume. One of my co-workers was wearing it the other day and she smelled heavenly.

YUM. Red Velvet Whoopie pies.  I'm considering making these and mailing them to all of my nieces and nephews.  Or, might make them for my friends who are coming over this week. Let's see how ambitious I am this week!

Just a pretty handmade headband.

I am in love with anything that has ruffles these days.  Jeff actually bought me a two-tone purple clutch version of this bag. LOVE.

Love a good cardi. I don't think light pink is the most flattering color on me, but sometimes you just have to wear what you like.
