I think having a child made me love Valentine's Day more than ever. I mean before her, I never really celebrated it much. I was single for the majority of my adult life so Valentine's Day was always a lets get really drunk, eat late night McDonalds and pass out next to my best girl friend kind of a night. My mom has always given my sister and I Valentine's Day gifts... she would even send them to us in college so she must of instilled some that in me :)
Not only is putting together a little love-day treat for her really fun but I also love all the heart covered clothes that come out around this time of year. Unlike the weird looks you get when you accidentally send your child out in a Santa shirt after Christmas is over.. you can totally milk the heart sweaters all winter long. SCORE.
I included some duds for all the little men in your life so no one would be left out of this loving holiday!
This week has been crawling by but we've had some fun over here. I had an appointment with my OB on Tuesday and thought I was 27 weeks along but then figured out I was actually 28 weeks and officially in the 3rd trimester. So that was WEIRD! WOAH! WHERE IS THE TIME GOING? HOW DID I LOSE A WEEK? I think it's messing with me because I feel like the baby is squishing my bladder and kicking my ribs way more than when I thought I was only 27 weeks.... I swear I peed 87 times yesterday. I think she was messing with me.
Hadley and I got lots of Minnie Mouse goodies at the party store the other day (PS, don't ever think you can go into a party store with a small child and escape empty handed.... I tried really hard) and I think it's safe to say that someone is officially obsessed. She also has a new obsession with forts which I am so down for. Who doesn't love a good fort?!!!!
Today we got our donut fix at a local dutch market. They have the best homemade donuts I've ever tasted in my ENTIRE LIFE. Life changing donuts I tell ya. We're only near that market every Thursday after her My Gym class so it's quickly becoming a Thursday tradition.
I don't hate it.

Talk about a mean mug? She's killin it in the ill-grill game.
Also, I shared this salad dressing recipe on my instagram the other night (@lnhudson28) and it's so yummy and tangy!

1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup white wine

Blend it all up and there you have it!
Lots of love to you all!
