Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you’re having a good weekend so far! We’re excited for a slow weekend at home after a busy week. A few of my kids’ after school activities are picking up again and it feels so good! But all of that running around wore us right out. We aren’t conditioned for it like we used to be! Ha.
We made these cute mini tacos for the Super Bowl (found the idea on IG) and I shared them in stories, but wanted to share them here too for anyone who missed it. You just buy the mini tortilla shells and place them in a muffin tin. Then add your cooked hamburger mix (or chicken or whatever meat you want to use!). Add cheese and then bake at 375 just until the cheese melts. Then add any toppings you want! Such a quick and easy dinner and my kids loved them!
I ordered this cowl neck sweater that was on sale thinking it looked so cute (I shared it in a post not long ago). When I came I put it on and could tell immediately that I loved it! Then I realized it looked a little familiar.
Turns out I’m now the proud owner of THREE of this same sweater. Ha! I had to laugh at myself. Please tell me I’m not alone in being so predictable and not even realizing that I ordered a sweater I already had in two other colors! Clearly I love this sweater and I’m keeping the green! It’s so comfortable and warm and slouchy but still looks put together with a little front tuck. It’s on sale for just $28! Such a steal. Maybe I need the pink or maroon too? ;) (*It runs big so order one size down!)
I want to give my office a little re-fresh this year with some new paint! I’ve loved the blue, but I’m getting tired of it. I change my mind daily about the direction I want to go with the new paint and this room so who knows when you’ll see an “after!?”
But I have a few colors to put up on the wall to test and we’ll go from there. I’ll keep you posted! Anyone else doing some painting this month? It’s the best way to update a space without spending much and I’m always surprised at the different a little paint can make!
Serena & Lily has always been a favorite store of mine and recently they reached out to see if I wanted to tour their new San Diego store before it opened. Um.. YES and YES! They let me bring a friend and it was so fun checking it out! I’ve been shopping at S & L for years but always on-line. I’ve never even seen one of their stores in person and this 6,000 sq. foot store didn’t disappoint! So beautiful. I thought I’d share some pics I snapped quick with my phone because they are so full of decorating inspiration! I’ve always loved their Ventura Chandelier. It’s HUGE in person!
A few other pretty spaces..
All of their flower/branch arrangements were real and made me want to chop off some branches and bring them inside immediately! Absolutely stunning.
Their benches! Be still my heart. A lot of S&L benches are currently on sale!
And you already know how I feel about their hanging rattan chair. My kids’ favorite spot in the house!
Beautiful outdoor space! I love how they combined several of their pendants with the same look together for lighting.
These Poetto vases have also been on my wishlist since I saw them on-line a few years ago! Aren’t they stunning with all of that greenery!?
And this might be the cutest rattan magazine holder I’ve ever seen. :)
Such a fun store to tour! It’s going to be dangerous having a real live S&L in my neck of the woods. And yes.. that’s my triple threat sweater I’m wearing again. ;)
Lots of great sales over the long weekend and I’ve rounded up some fun items that are marked down at a few favorite stores below! ENJOY the rest of your time off. My kids are out of school Monday and I’m excited to hang out with them and do a little organizing too. My favorite kind of weekend. :)
