Happy Valentine’s Day! For me, this is a day of hearts, flowers, pink and a blanket!!
Though we are not going out today, Mr. B and I are going to celebrate at home and make it special.
A little wine…sweets…special meal and a fire in the fireplace!
A DAY OF HEARTS
I miss getting the cut out glittery hearts from my young children, but this works!! I am huge fan of their jewelry.
A DAY OF FLOWERS
I choose to wear my flowers today at the bottom of my Soft Surroundings Have-to-Have leggings.
This is kind of big news for me, but I have not been a fan of floral prints for a very long time, but I am beginning to change!
Lately, I have seen so many florals that I like and I am excited about wearing more this spring.
These leggings are super comfy, warm, and a more subtle way to wear florals at this time….but get ready! I will be wearing more this spring!
A DAY OF PINK
I decided to go with my JJill Pink Cardigan today rather than wear red.
I like the softness of this outfit and it is very comfortable for a day at home. The necklace is my Faux Pearl Pendant from Chico’s and currently on sale!
AND A BLANKET!
The weather isn’t exactly what I planned today….it was what the groundhog planned.
We are experiencing the winteriest-weather that San Antonio has had in decades, and it is just too cold for these wimpy Texans to go out!
I adore this Rustic Green Mexican Blanket from Laguna Beach Textile Company sent to me to review, and I had planned a backyard picnic on it. But, I am still going to set out a lovely meal in front of the fire.
This blanket will see many, many picnics at this house and on the road with grandchildren and family!
It is “woven by artisans in Tlaxcala, Mexico—a region known for crafting these blankets for centuries—this Mexican blanket is made of a cotton, polyester, and acrylic blend. The combination of these fabrics provides maximum durability while still maintaining softness. Perfect for lounging at the beach, hosting a picnic, a throw blanket, yoga accessory, or even a beach bonfire wrap.” Very reasonably priced at $35. Check it the picnic blankets here!
I am going to join him today with his favorite foods and with an afternoon espresso. Something Mr. B loves to do since will received our iperEspresso machines by Illy.
I love the vintage style of this machine…has such a cool look to it and delicious espresso appears with the simple push of a button.
Heres a bit about the iperEspresso capsule system which is “Unlike conventional one-stage systems, the iperEspresso capsule system uses a, patented two-stage process to create intensely aromatic, full-bodied espresso with rich, long-lasting crema. And the capsules make for quick and easy clean up.”
In terms of the coffee the rich crema in the espresso, and smooth balanced taste profile of the illy blend. It is by far the best espresso I have ever had…delicious!
You can see we have a nice day planned and the cold weather makes it even better. There is no pressure to leave the house, but light a fire and be Valentine’s!
I hope you you have a lovely day……
KEEP SMILING, EVERYONE!!
