Friday Favorites: Valentine's Day and Presidents' Day

Happy Friday, y’all! Chris and I have both been so busy that I feel like this week just started. I don’t want to wish time away, but I hope these next few weeks continue to fly by (I’m looking at you, March 20!). Anyways, on to my Friday favorites this week:

/ / One:
I mentioned it on my confessions, but I am so excited for a three-day weekend! Sadly, Chris has a rotation, so he won’t be home, but I am looking forward to a day to organize and work on the blog.
/ / Two:
Chris and I don’t do anything big for Valentine’s Day, but since we have been so busy lately, we decided we would spend this entire weekend together, just the two of us (and Sky!). He is about to start a hard rotation that includes weekends, so I am eager to get all the time I can with him.

/ / Three:
I love this time of each month because all of my subscription boxes are arriving. I just got my February PopSugar Must Have Box, and I can't wait to share it next week!

/ / Four:
I am in desperate need of some black sandals. I know that sounds funny in the middle of February, but it is supposed to be 73 tomorrow (and 43 on Sunday. Thanks, Texas!), and my black sandals are literally falling apart. I have been searching for replacements since last summer, so if anyone finds anything cute, please send it my way!

/ / Five:
My hubby broke the bathtub this week with the mirror he uses for shaving. It might sound weird to include that as a favorite, but it's a great example of the hilariousness that happens around here. It's almost as good as the time he broke our bedroom window by jumping on our bed when we first got married (that's a story for another day). Also, he would totally kill me for posting this, so let's just hope he doesn't decide to read the blog today. :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

  1. Oh I laughed really hard at number 5. I'm the one who tends to break things around here when I'm trying to be clever and funny. Let us know if you find good black sandals! I'm not sure how I've acquired so many brown sandals and when my one black pair are falling apart! Ekke! Happy Valentine's Day to you two!

  2. haha he broke the bath?! that is hilarious. I love when random things like that happen -my husband and I definitely have a few of those stories. enjoy your long weekend, so jealous! and good luck with the black sandals search - I am no help there at all!

  3. I just got an email saying my glossy box shipped out and I'm just as giddy as you!!! Hope you enjoy your three day weekend!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  4. I hope the weekend is absolutely perfect for ya'll and cheers to a longer one! xo

  5. Oh no!!!! I'm pretty sure I would be a dead women if I broke the tub! I definitely need to hear that jumping on the bed story ;-)

  6. We arent to big on Valentine's either. We are going to go out for dinner but that isnt anything unusual for us. Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. Sounds like interesting mishaps the hubby has had with breaking stuff!! Can't help but giggle.

  8. I'm sensing that your boy tends to break things in very odd ways. Hmmm...

  9. I keep trying to picture how a mirror can break a bathtub and I just can't. But I can totally picture breaking the window while jumping on the bed and it's hilarious!

  10. Oh no! Poor Chris. Hopefully it's not too hard to fix. The window story sounds funny too!

  11. haha how did he break the tub? So cute that you find it funny though. I probably would have laughed as well!

  12. Totally jealous of your three day weekend but I know you deserve it! You're gonna have to share these stories one day :) Hope you two had a great day together!

  13. I hope the next few weeks to Match Day just fly by! And the hard rotation weeks too. Rotations that include weekends away too are always hard. Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend relaxing together. Thanks for linking up with us at H54F!!

  14. I hope you had a great weekend and that you survive those crazy rotations!

  15. As someone who happens to accidentally have crazy things like #5 happen, I'm glad to know I'm not the only 1 that those things happen to:)haha I hope you all had a wonderful weekend together!
