I'll email both of you ladies this afternoon with details - but I'm so excited for you!!!

Now, on to the weekend recap and LAST giveaway for Crazy Love!

Friday night was a daddy-daughter dance at the country club. I was going to take Griffin up there, but things got crazy and we decided to stay home.... so I snapped a pic of her and Dave before he went back to work...



After DAve went back to work, the kids and I ate dinner and Haha stopped by for some hot cocoa and opening ceremonies.  Luke is cheering for both the US and Canada :) #dualcitizen

Saturday was cold and icky so Griffin and I stayed inside and put laundry away.  My least favorite chore of all the chores (except for mopping.  I REALLY hate mopping.)

Saturday night I posted this pic of my Hippie Chick scarf and got QUITE the reaction about my hair.  Apparently my hair normally looks like a hot mess, because lots of y'all commented on it. hahaha.  I got several questions about my hair and so I'm planning on doing a hair post next week.  (Because how thrilling does that sound?!?!) ;)

Diana's birthday was yesterday, and we met her and Mark and my parents at Abuelos for dinner to celebrate.  Dave was at work and I got everyone up from naps, changed, dressed, packed up and out the door.  We forgot coats for the boys... but I still considered it a success.  

Seriously - G's face CRACKS ME UP!!!  And yes... MAson is holding a Lego "Hero Factory guy" and Luke has his beloved Kindle :)

Dinner was delish and I was cracking up, because every time I turned my iPhone camera around, Griffin would see herself , smile and start jabbering.  SO STINKIN CUTE!!!

We got home and I got everyone in PJs, Griffin was down for the night and I was washing bottles while the boys were playing Legos and watchign the Olympics in my room.  I came in to get Mason for bed and found him like this...

.... that's eyeshadow all over his face.  Awesome.   
And on the other side of the bed was Luke...

He's feeling better, but is still kind of wiped out.  Poor baby!

Sunday morning I rocked my new Hippie Chick pants! LOVE!!!

And Griffin wore the CUTEST. OUTFIT. EVER.




More details on her outfit in a minute!

We got home from church and Mason was Mason during lunch :)

And Griffin was REEEEEEEEEEEALY excited about her kissy kissy leg warmers :)

I spent the rest of the afternoon grading papers and then ended the weekend with a super fun girls night out at Mellow Mushroom.  PERFECTION!!! 

So... about Griffin's outfit above.  A while ago I came across the CUTEST store in Plano called Griffin and Grace.  I loved it immediately because of the name (hehehe) and when I went to check it out I loved it even more!  Jordan works there and is ADORABLE and super sweet and is seriously the busiest person ever (Shay... she may even give you a run for your money, seriously!!!).  Griffin's damask outfit above is by Giggle Moon and Griffin and Grace is THE place if you're looking for cute boutique clothing like Giggle Moon, Mustard Pie and Haven Girl (to name a few). 

If you know me... you know that this is 100% my kind of place :)

Not only do they have super cute little girls clothes, but they keep mama happy as well!
Capri Blu candles are one of my VERY favorites (the Volcano scent is THE BEST!)...

... and how cute are these little burlap clutches?!?!?!

I LOVE a monogram and thought these would be cute as teacher gifts or even attached to a present as a little gift tag. 

Their jewelry is adorable (and VERY reasonably priced! DOUBLE WIN!)

And they carry bath and body products as well!

I raved about Lollia hand cream in my "Teacher Gifts" post and was excited to find out that they carried it!

I am totally regretting not picking up this super cute aztec top for myself... because WHITE LINEN PANTS!!!

And you can never go wrong with Free People.


LOVE this henley with the little floral and ruffle...


... and the colors of these boot socks were super unique.

This sequin tank could be dressed up or down...

... and I was loving both the sweater and the maxi dress.

While I was there, Jordan was busy packing up orders because THEY SHIP!  They post new things on Facebook all the time and will ship directly to you!

So, in honor of all the things I CRAZY LOVE about Griffin and Grace they've graciously decided to gift one of you with a $50 store credit!  This is the last giveaway for Crazy Love and I can't wait to pick one of you!!!  Enter below and I'll announce on Friday morning who gets to shop!


Check back in tomorrow for some last-minute printable Valentines!!!

    And I can totally relate about disliking laundry! It is the worst! I think I rather scrub toilets or take care of our cat's litter box than wash, dry, fold, etc!
