Happy Friday!! Busy busy day on the blog!! First, I'm linking up with Shay, Sheaffer, and Mel to show you my Pin-spired look. If we're being completely honest, I was super lazy this month...but I do love the colors the Pin-spired pic gave me. :)
The coat color is similar to mine, so when I saw this pin I knew I could recreate it.
These are the top 5 things on my bucket list for February.
Watching the Super Bowl this weekend!! I went shopping for my super bowl goodies yesterday and added way too much junk food just because it was Super Bowl weekend?? What? Next week...I'll have to be REALLY good!
This isn't our house...just a google image pic. :) But...I have a LONG list of little and big to-dos that Tab and I have to get done this month. With football over, NOW is the time!
Valentine cards for the kiddos' friends. This is how I'll be hoping they turn out, but they'll look more like this...
hahahaha!!! Nothing is wrong with the above card! I'll have to remind myself!!
#4 (Random pic because each number needed one. haha!)
The Slaughters are officially starting a new valentine tradition. I'm blogging all about some ideas for this next week. I'm really looking forward to having fun on Valentine's Day with the entire family!
I'm excited about ANOTHER Instagram challenge!! Andrea and I are excited to start the February challenge. I'm really looking forward to seeing ALL the photos this month!! Please join us!!

Before becoming a stay-at-home mom, I was a third-grade teacher. I think being a teacher brought out the holiday-dressing-love inside me! haha! What I mean is...as a teacher I'd for sure be sporting black/orange the whole week of Halloween. The kiddos loved it and it was just fun! So, even though I'm not teaching anymore, I still find myself planning the red, white, and blue outfits a couple weeks before the 4th! Or in this case, I start thinking about what me OR my kiddos will be wearing the week of Valentine's Day. (I know it sounds ridiculous, but just go with it...please. :) Haha!) I love searching Pinterest for some great holiday inspirations!! Here are my Top Three casual Valentine's Day looks...
Love this understated heart scarf with the chambray shirt, leggings, and white tee. Super casual...but oh so cute!!
I found a couple options for this...
Chambray Shirt: Loft here.
White Tee: I've said this before, but I'm super long-waisted. Any shirt that is "long" on an average size person is probably too short on me. So, I've discovered buying plain tees or tanks (to wear under things) in the maternity section here. They aren't bigger around the stomach. They don't have ruching. (The gathering on the sides.) If you're long-waisted, try one!
Leggings: Nordstrom here.
Boots: SALE ALERT!!! I bought these boots in the fall and they are now 60% off!!! Under $60 for a GREAT pair of boots! If you're needing some, check these out!
Scarf: I searched and searched for a heart scarf and only found one. Super cute for $165! What? So...here are a couple floral, pink, or red options.
This one is a little more..."Happy Valentine's Day", but I think it'd be adorable!
Coat: Super cute purple one here and it's 50% off! Red toggled option and on sale. And...dark red option here and on sale too!!
Valentine Shirt: Red option. Black option. These are shirts from Target. Super fun for a couple days to celebrate, but I wouldn't spend a lot of money on a shirt like this...Target for the win!
Skinny Jeans: Nordstrom here.
Love the pants/grey combo!! The heart earrings would be a little much for me, but the pants/shirt combo I LOVE!
Grey Shirt: Gap option here.
Outfit #4 (One dressy option)
I wish I had some where fancy to go to wear this outfit! Love the peplum top with the trouser pants!
Trouser Pants: Loft here.
Hope you guys were a little inspired today! Happy Tuesday!

Headed to the gym bright and early!
This kid keeps me on my toes!!! He is a MESS!!
"Really, Mom, ANOTHER picture?"
The weather this weekend was beautiful!
He's big but not big enough for this...YET!
Boys!! Bowen thought this was a blast!
We went back to M & G's house for dinner and Bowen fell. Isn't that the biggest bump EVER??? EEK! I called our friends, the Smiths (she's a nurse and he's an er pa), they calmed me down. The bump actually started going "down" really quickly....thankfully!
This little guy threw me a bone and let me snuggle with him.
Ebby Lee talked M into playing "pedicure" with her. Ha!
