Yay for Friday! I'm blogging today from gorgeous Naples, Florida...escaping here each winter puts me right in my happy zone, and I'm so excited to be in the midst of a lazy long weekend filled with sun, sand, and (of course) happy hours! Here are some other things I'm loving this week.
T and I celebrated a lovely Valentine's Day on Sunday by exchanging cards and gifts at home together, then going out to eat at one of our very favorite restaurants. One little additional surprise from him were these Broadway Valentine cards with musical-related VDay sentiments; being a total musical theater nerd, they totally cracked me up! Does anyone recognize the musical in the Valentine above?
Favorite new gift
And speaking of Valentine gifts...T's mother sent us an awesome care package with a bunch of her freshly baked chocolate chip cookies (um, YUM) and this adorable Kate Spade coffee mug for me! I've been on the hunt for a new mug for my new office and considering all the other Kate Spade office supplies that I've already purchased, this mug will be right at home in my new space.
With all the new recipes readily available on Pinterest and in cookbooks, it can be difficult to find time to revisit some old favorites. I recently made this lightened-up spinach artichoke dip that I shared on the blog over a year ago, and it was once again a huge crowd-pleaser! I definitely recommend trying it out if you're looking for a dip for your next party, since it's incredibly yummy and literally could not be easier to make (once again, I owe it all to my slow cooker!).
I love a good DIY project that adds a boost of glam without taking up a ton of time, so I just had to pin these gold-dipped balloons - just a few brushstrokes takes them from basic kid's birthday party decor to chic, grownup soiree! I will definitely be creating some for my next event.
Back to Vacation!
Ok, it's back to the beach for me! Wishing everyone a very sunny weekend!
Cheers to April, Amanda, Jennie, Karli, Rebecca, Katie, Heather, Andrea, and Tif for hosting today's link-ups!
