Happy Tuesday readers! Countdown to Friday has already begun for me.  This past weekend I was visiting my beautiful mother in Charleston, SC.  We had a blast – dinner and drinks, shopping and exploring, I love some quality time with my momma, but boy am I exhausted from such a busy weekend.

Looking forward to a weekend of relaxation.  Here’s a sneak peak into my bedroom, where I will be planning to relax on all weekend — full of vegging, eating yummy snacks and watching countless movies!  Wayne, Mr. Prince Charming, made a special guest preview and wanted to show off his outfit too!   I’m so lucky to have someone who is so photogenic! 🙂

All details from my bedroom decor and our outfits are below — enjoy!!

EEK! Update on this shimmery, pale pink slip dress that was one of my choices for Valentine’s Day… it’s on SALE and available in most sizes! It’s been marked down to $24.99, fits like a glove in all the right places and the slit up the side is so sexy!  Absolutely love this midi-dress for spring.  Pair now with a black fur coat (as shown below) or in the spring with nude, strappy heels and a tan leather jacket.

Valentine’s Day Bliss

I hope everyone had a wonderful loving Valentine’s Day, whether you celebrate on the day or on the weekend, and whether it’s with friends, a loved one or your family! It’s so fun for Wayne and I to get dressed up and go to a nice dinner. This was our fifth Valentine’s Day together and boy, did he really keep me on my toes.

Early in the day, he texted me saying he couldn’t believe this was our fifth V-day together, and I really had to think about it, because I couldn’t believe it either.  I can remember our first V-day, and how anxious I was to be going to Valentine’s Day dinner with this handsome man as his “girlfriend!” I had butterflies!!

This year, I had a work event and was able to head home early to work from home.  As soon as I walked in the door, on our dining room table, was a HUGE bouquet of white and pink roses! I was so shocked!!!  In the card it explained how this is such a special holiday today because it’s our fifth Valentine’s celebrated together, so he thought it was only fitting to give me five dozen roses – I was blown away and could not be more in love with these gorgeous flowers!  So, this called for a blog shoot – Over the next few days, I’ll be posting the outfit I wore, and others considered wearing for my Valentine’s Day date night.
