Thank Goodness It’s FRIDAY! I don’t know about you, but this week has been insane! I have been working ten (10) plus hour days, which has resulted in super late nights and very early mornings AND lots and lots of coffee! I’m talking world record coffee consumption my friends! BUT while I am exhausted, I am really proud of myself because even with my crazy week, I was still able to maintain the majority of my 2017 goals ♥
I went on several walks with Reagan, Zara and our neighbors (6.5 miles so far) • I was a complete #bossbabe at work this week • I made time for my family (i.e. the epic snowball fight of 2017) • I put my phone away before I went to bed and read • Even with a crazy work schedule, I stuck with my blog schedule and successfully published two posts this week (something I did not do in 2016) •
SO it’s Friday and it is time to celebrate a successful week, and this weekend happens to be “Valentine’s” weekend ♥ I have never been a big fan of Valentine’s Day, but over time this greeting card holiday has slowly started to grow on me. Let’s be real, Valentine’s Day is about spending time with the ones you love and care for, which to me means your spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, fur babies, family and friends. I do not believe that Valentine’s Day is solely meant for romantic couples. Whether you are single, taken, not looking, I hope that you make the effort to spend time with the one’s you love and care for this weekend!
I am really excited because I will be spending Saturday evening with my husband and my older siblings and their spouses! This is the first time we will all be going out on the town (adults only) ♥ Thank goodness for Grandmas and Grandpas for volunteering to babysit this weekend (a certain Aunt is extremely thankful)! So this momentous occasion calls for a kick ass look, and I have the perfect dress!
I absolutely adore this wine red dress from Lulu’s ♥ I purchased this dress over a year ago to wear for Christmas Eve, and it is a perfect look for a Valentine’s weekend night out on the town. This shift dress is available in several shades of red and is extremely affordable! While you will not be able to get this dress in time for this weekend, you can choose one or two day shipping upon check out, and receive it in time for February 14th ♥
I am going to pair my Lulu’s Shift and Shout Wine Red Shift Dress with a chunky, sparkly necklace from Loft (see above) and my latest obsession…my Elsa Dress Pumps by Betsey Johnson ♥ These shoes are AMAZING! They are unique, sparkly, perfect and walkable! Take it from a girl who is constantly fall up and down stairs…you can actually walk in these babies! PLUS they are Amazon Prime eligible so hello you can get them in two days!! Since these shoes are a little pricey (okay very pricey because I never buy shoes full price) I advise going simple with your jewelry selection to help even out this look. I would suggest something like this piece from Loft or this stunner from Francesca’s! Whatever your plans are this weekend, I hope your weekend is filled with lots of love, laughter, friendship and puppy kisses!
