The Easter Bunny is right around the corner!  Every year I’ve always purchased a new dress for Easter Sunday.  When I was a little girl, that tradition always included a new hat and sometimes even gloves.  As a little Pentecostal church girl, Easter Sunday dresses were a big deal.  Now, I’ll pass that tradition on to my own sweet baby girl.

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect dress for myself and thought I’d share some that caught my eye at different price points.  I ordered one of these dresses for myself.  Leave a comment below with your guess on which one I bought!

I haven’t yet found the perfect dress or outfit for MacKenlee and I’ve been looking everywhere.  If you have any good suggestions about where I should be shopping for her, let me know in the comments.  I’ve already tried H&M, Nordstrom, Old Navy, Janie and Jack, Baby Gap and Zara Baby to name a few…

If you’re planning your evening out with your man, then hopefully you’ll get an idea or two. If your man is supposed to be planning your night out together, maybe you should send him this blog post and hope that he gets the hint that he better be planning something special! 🙂 Valentine’s Day has always been special to me. I can remember from a very young age, my mom always made it memorable. She’d put a card and a special treat or gift in my lunchbox when I was little. She even still sends me a valentine in the mail every year as an adult. I learned to appreciate the day from her and try to make it special for Matt now too. Last year, we spent this holiday apart since Matt was already in Atlanta filming Pitch Perfect. This year we’re in the same city, but he’ll be working and we have a new baby… So I’m planning a special date night for us the weekend after and decided to share some of my ideas.

Valentine’s Day Date Ideas

  • Cooking at home. This is a great budget-friendly option that requires no reservations and no frustration with the service. I love the idea of surprising your significant other with their favorite meal that you’ve personally cooked for them. Kick it up a notch by finding ways to incorporate red, pink, or even hearts into different parts of the meal. Don’t forget fresh flowers on the table and candlelight for ambiance.
  • Go on a picnic. Picnics are incredibly romantic, weather permitting of course. Some restaurants or wine shops offer custom made or pre-made picnic baskets with paired wine. Such a fun idea!
  • Skating or Ice Skating. Who wouldn’t want to hold hands and couple skate like a couple of 8th graders? Bonus points for requesting an old school jam like something from Boyz II Men.
  • Recreate your first date. Love this idea! Ours would include someone nervously knocking over a full glass of water all over the table at Carabba’s… I’m not naming names here *cough* (Matt) *cough*.
  • Spa day. My very favorite way to spend an afternoon is having a relaxing spa experience with Matt. I love a great couples massage and unwinding in the steam room after. There’s nothing this tired mama would love more right now than to have a luxurious spa day to recharge and reset.
  • Movie night at home. But not just any movie night… Build a comfy bed in the middle of your living room floor and watch the first movie you ever saw together. Don’t forget his/her favorite takeout and dessert!
  • For the guys… This idea would make any girl melt. Leave the date night a complete surprise. Take her to Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry and pick out a special piece of jewelry together. Every time she sees this piece, she’ll remember the thought you put into this Valentine’s Day. I love the reminder that my special jewelry pieces are to me. On my right hand, I wear a beautiful ring that was my Mawmaw’s from the 1940’s. Every time I look at it, I think of her and smile. This Valentine’s Day, leave her with a smile by picking out the perfect jewelry piece together. Trust me, she’ll love this Valentine’s Day spent at Jared’s more than any other before.

Matt and I send Christmas cards annually (see last year’s photo in this blog post), but this year we decided to combine our Christmas card shoot with our maternity shoot…  And I think the photos turned out so beautiful.  I’ve already shared several on my Instagram page, but I wanted to take the opportunity to share several more with y’all.

2017 has been a year to remember for us.  It was the year we kicked off living in Vancouver, then back to LA to move into our new home.  We lived in Atlanta for two months while Matt filmed Pitch Perfect 3.  We found out Timeless was cancelled, then got the sweetest surprise ever…  Finding out that we were PREGNANT.  Also we found out that Timeless was renewed for season 2 AND moving to Los Angeles all in the same week.  2017 was also the year we launched our pregnancy podcast, Hello Bump, and found out that we were expecting a little girl.  All in all, 2017 was awesome.

We can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for us.  Wishing my Gorgeous Family a Happy New Year filled with good health, time with your loved ones and so much love.
