Valentines Day Festiveness

Happy Valentine's Week!

This year I didn't really have much time to decorate as much as I have in the past, but I do have a few cute details around our home to share.
Pink tulips, homemade sugar cookies and The Meaning of Marriage - a perfect little coffee table combo.
And I totally slacked on the chalkboard for this holiday. I'm not sure which is worse, the fact that I just took down our Christmas chalk art this week, or that instead of handwriting a new design for V-day, I chose to just tape up a chalkboard print and add a banner.
  I didn't even go to great lengths to hide the tape. So yeah, that's about as much "decorating" as I plan to do this year for V-day. Friday night Matt and I are sticking to our Valentine dinner tradition at Cajun Queen!

  2. Sometimes less is best :) The flowers are a great addition, and I don't think I've seen that coffee table before! I think it's time for another updated tour of your living room!

  4. Love the flowers!! You've done much more than I have-- there's NOTHING up around here that would give you any idea that it's Valentine's Week and my last name IS Hart.

  19. Sometimes simplicity is the best way to go! I love all your decorations, even if they are few :) And, until you said something, I didn't realize that you hadn't hand-lettered your chalkboard :)

  20. Well, your decorating this year is ahead of me! I have nothing too valentine's to speak up put up. And to my surprise, Collin is very excited about Valentine's day this year! He keeps asking when it is. I feel a bit sad for him, though, because he thinks Daddy gets to stay home from work. :( But, we'll celebrate and make him (and Emma & Robert) feel extra loved and special. :)

  22. Love your honesty!! But you're being too hard, I think it all looks so fun!! Being pregnant is hard and things like that take a backseat, especially when your this far along. Enjoy yourself mama!!
