{Friday Five: Valentine's Edition}

Happy Valentine's Day Friends! 

I had great inspiration for a Valentine's themed shoot with a cute outfit and precious props, but ya'll life has been a bit crazy! We've both been so busy, and we're leaving for Birmingham this morning to see friends! are my top five things to do this weekend...even if you don't have someone special to spend it with! Make yourself happy...and do something fun! 

1. Make a fancy breakfast

Ya' doesn't have to be hard. As long as you have a knife and the ability to create a semi-legible Valentine're good! 

2. Buy yourself something that makes you really happy

I'm a big believer in the fact that you can't wait for someone else to make you happy. And even if someone makes you really still have to be happy with yourself! So go and buy a new pair of comfy PJ's, some beautiful flowers, some new nail polish, or a box of chocolates!

3. Create something beautiful

Being creative is so important! I didn't say you had to be a good at it...just get yourself together and do something! If we were home this weekend...we'd be making these cookies...yum! 

4. Do something nice for someone else

Hand a stranger a Starbucks card, get a dozen roses and hand them out to mom's at the grocery store, get your neighbor some of your favorite cookies, give you husband/fiance/boyfriend an amazing massage. It a proven fact {okay...not so sure if it's really proven} that doing nice things for others makes you feel better. My little ones all know that when you are a "bucket filler", you are filling your own bucket. And it's 100% true! 

5. Choose to be happy

It is ever so easy to be sad. For real...even if I'm super happy...I could still cry at a moment's notice. But we have to choose to be happy! It's a decision, and on this day of love...choose to be really really happy! Your loved ones will thank you! 

Happy Valentine's Day Loves!
