What I Want This Weekend, Valentine Edition 2010
Here are some pretty, Valentine-worthy things I've come across this week,
from some blog
or just from my own browsing&shopping&surfing,
that a Valentine you or I know might want to unwrap...
My little is all my little girl. She loves bright pink as much as her mommy does, & we incorporate a lot of elephants into her collections because My Prince is such a big University of Alabama fan. & we love wooden toys -
easy to clean,
pretty to look at.
Finn's Finds is a neat little children's shop, too. & they have a sale going on right now that takes 30% off of everything with the code "bemine". They are also donating 10% of all sales through the end of the month to Doctors Without Borders, in response to the earthquake in Haiti. Oh, & free shipping if you go hog-wild & spend more than $150.
Pinkalicious: Love, Pinkalicious by Victoria Kann
We recently checked Pinkalicious out at the library, & as I stated before, Pretty Little Bare Feet loves all things pink as much as her mommy does - this book is no exception! We decided just to go ahead & buy a copy for Pretty Little Bare Feet's book collection, & we were delighted to find Goldilicious & Purplicious, too! I also found this adorable special little sticker book, Love, Pinkalicious, which is perfect for Valentine's Day. & Pretty Little Bare Feet has recently become fascinated by stickers, so she'll be delighted.
I Spy Little Hearts by Jean Marzollo
I am an avid, avid bookworm, & lucky for Pretty Little Bare Feet, I like to buy children's books as much as I like to buy books for me! This means that she ends up with a lot of books as gifts for all of the little Holiday gifts I put together for her. I do try to pick things that she'll be able to enjoy right now, too, so I was really excited to find that there was a board book edition of this little Valentine treasure. I am picky, picky, picky about what I will allow on my television, & since Pretty Little Bare Feet is barely a year old, she doesn't get much television at all. I do allow the twenty-minute snippets of "Elmo's World" at the end of Sesame Street, if we are at home. I also play a Baby Einstein every now&then, if I need to
blow-dry my hair
or make a phone call
& because I know she's going to want to watch more television as she gets older, I've already started the vetting process for which children's programming is welcome in my home. I like most of what comes on HBO Family, & My Prince really likes I Spy. It's a really cute little show, & Pretty Little Bare Feet loves the catchy little songs & the "Whoop! We found it!" cheer that they do. We've already found some I Spy books&DVDs to add to our collections, & I'm excited to add this one for Valentine's Day, too.
I know. I've gone
about how in love I am with my new Lilly Pulitzer Pandamonium original tote that I got from My Prince for my birthday. So how fitting would it be to get a followup shift dress for Valentine's Day? Now I wouldn't ever carry the tote while wearing the dress (that'd be a bit much, even for me!). But I do love the dress, especially picturing it balanced out with
a black cardigan,
& a black handbag.
(& Lord knows, I've got enough black accessories to even change that up a bit!)
By the way, I believe they are sold out of the pre-order on the Lilly Pulitzer website. At least, I can't pull it up anymore. That link is for one of my favorite Lilly Pulitzer Via shops, though, the Pink Pelican. They are fabulous.
Lilly Pulitzer Shere Wrap in Shorely Blue
Oh, & how I would love to wrap myself up in this to get through the rest of this ridiculously frigid&long winter (even here in the South!). I love this shade of blue, too, & My Prince usually jumps at anything blue or green that I pick out, as those are two of his favorite shades for me to wear, & they are not usually two of my first color choices for my clothing.
T.G.I.F.! What do YOU want from your Valentine this weekend?
