Where there is change, there must be hope in there somewhere. Let’s hope for the best as we move forward. All I will say about this week. Happy Friday Babes. Considering most weekends, we don’t go anywhere, I am so excited for a trip to Indianapolis tomorrow with our kids to see our Indy resident son. Going to be freezing cold but we’ll make the most of it!


1. Red Heart Waffle Maker
Ok, I love red and I am missing all the red in my house from the holidays because I don’t use it as an accent color anymore, but it always looks so good against all of my gray and white. As you saw I did decorate the porch for Valentine’s Day and a little bit in the dining room, but I am all about hearts! I finally got one of these little waffle makers to make chaffles and I think this would be the perfect gift for yourself or someone you love. 
It is so stinking cute! And a great deal HEREHERE and this extra cute one HERE.

so cute

2. Red Shoe Gifts

Let’s talk red shoes! My mom and I have a tradition where every Christmas we get each other one small gift with the red shoe motif. Well, this year she was not able to get out and shop as much and I kind of forgot about it so she made me a red shoe out of cookie dough, hilarious! But anyway I shared these at Christmas time as great stocking stuffers and I got my mom the Magnets. I think these are the cutest little Valentine gift ideas for the females in your life!

4. Swiss Dot Dress

The name of this Swiss Dot Dress from Mint Julep Boutique is You’re Mine and rightly so because I am so glad it is mine. It is SOOO Cute. Surpassed all my expectations; Comfy, lined, rouching at the sleeves. So many ways to style it, but here I wanted some rose gold accessories and a cute pink bandana and wa-la I match my Valentine Porch, lol.

This faux fur Heart Bag is from my dear friend at Maluniers. It comes in 3 colors, is very affordable and would make a great Valentine gift for the ladies in your life. She even offers gift bundles on these. You may remember Maluniers is the great shop where I got my beautiful Reversible Poncho.
