Valentines Day


Printable Tic Tac Toe Valentine

Hey hey friends! Are you gearing up for Valentines Day yet? I'm ready for some sweet treats, which is how these Berry Cherry Tic Tac's made it to the checkout counter when I was out and about.

My boys are big fans of this game, we play it on napkins at restaurants while waiting for our food ALL. THE. TIME. I'm thinking it's definitely going to be more fun to play with something enticing at stake, [...]


Valentine Mantel

They were then brought home with the intentions of making Christmas decorations. That didn't really happen. Fast forward 4 months and here we are now with some awesome dried out wooden rounds, cost: $0. Chandra = winning. Thank you.[...]

We make some small changes around the house, a few printables here, some fun ceramic owls there (haha), a fireplace mantle that screams love & Cupid.
