What I Read in January

Richard Paul Evans is one of my favorite authors and my Mom always comes through with his new ones for Christmas.  This one was Christmas themed but I feel like you could read it year round.  It followed a best selling author as he goes back to his childhood home after his mother passes away.  He is forced to face his difficult past when he meets a young woman whose past is interwoven with his.  It was pretty easy to figure out the ending but the story was good and if you are a fan of Mr. Evans I recommend it.

The last book in The 5th Wave series and I was so excited to see the how they ended.  The final book catches back up with Cassie and her group as they try and live in a world taken over by aliens.  I was slightly disappointed with the story, as a whole I enjoyed it but there were questions left unanswered and some awkward moments between characters (romances and drama).  As a whole I felt the series was interesting and generally well done, the first book was definitely the best.  Have you read it?  Let me know what you thought. 

I am a fan of Liane Moriarty, I loved What Alice Forgot and Big Little Lies.  This one was a slight disappointment.  It didn't seem quite up to par with the rest of her books.  It was an ok story, I just felt it was predictable and not very original.

My Favorite Valentine's Day

I've always liked the idea of Valentine's Day, all the pink, chocolate and flowers.  
I have so many great memories of picking out those cute cards for my classmates, making boxes to hold valentine's and classroom parties.  Even more sweet memories of my mom making a special breakfast and giving us Valentine's, now at 27 she still sends me a Valentine ;)
My favorite Valentine's day, however, was when I was in college.  When a special guy brought me a beautiful rose, cherry coke (my favorite), the cutest stuffed giraffe and we started dating.  Seven years later, going into our fourth year of marriage I couldn't be happier.    

Such babies!! 

We don't have big plans to celebrate this Valentine's.  Instead of a fancy dinner date we are heading to Chick-Fil-A for a breakfast date before work.  Honestly I might like that even better, chicken biscuits and iced coffee have my heart.  I'm making a simple (but yummy) dinner.  Who needs a fancy date night out when you can sit in your pajamas eating chocolate lava cake watching the Olympics?? 

Whether you love it or hate it I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

I had to leave you with this picture from Walmart, too funny not to share...

Seriously, Valentine's explosion on aisle 4...

Splurge vs. Save: Chloe Marcie Satchel

Splurge vs. Save

Y'all know I am all about a good dupe, why pay more when you can get the same look for so much less??
Chloe Marcie: This bag is one of my favorite designer bags, my if only bag...I just could never (ever) spend almost $2K on a bag.  I love the shape and style of this bag and am constantly looking for bags that give the same look.

Destin Satchel: I finally found a dupe that comes pretty close.  Similar shape and details, the top handles are different but for the price I think I can live with the difference.  This one is from Sole Society comes in three colors and is $69.95  These sold out crazy fast last year so pick one up quick!!

Five Things Friday

Five Things Friday
I picked up these sneakers at Dirt Cheap (where else??) for $5!!  Guys I am obsessed with them.  They are a Steve Madden dupe, these are actually kid's shoes from Target.  They are a little crazy but I love the pom pom detail and the texture it adds to an outfit.  They are so chic and fun!

I have had this case for a few months and it has definitely been a favorite.  Me and my husband are on the GoogleFi plan so we have Google phones.  I have the Nexus 6P and there aren't that many cute cases.  This one is sturdy but has a chic gold edge detail.  I have a popsocket on the back so it adds a fun touch.

Guys this thing is awesome!!  My mom gave me this in my stocking for Christmas and I am obsessed!!  I would always use a spatula to chop ground meat but this tool makes everything so much easier.

"A million dreams are keeping me awake", and so are these songs!  I have been listening to this soundtrack non-stop.  If you read my Five Things Friday post last week you saw my love for the movie.  I can listen to the whole thing over and over, there isn't a song I don't like.  My absolute favorites are: "A Million Dreams", "Never Enough", "Other Side" and "Tightrope".  What are your favorites??  

I ordered this one for store pickup and ended up paying less than $15!!  It is so buttery soft and looks expensive.  I love the tassel and chevron detail.  It is small enough to be convenient but holds enough stuff for everyday.  If you are looking for a crossbody check this one out!

Star Treatment at the Hollywood Walk of Fame

If you follow me on instagram (which you totally should!) you would have seen that I had the chance to go see Minnie Mouse get her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!  We started out at Hollywood Studios and saw Minnie get notified that she was receiving her star.  Then she and Mickey got in the cutest polka dot car and rode off in style.

After seeing Minnie off we went on our way to California to get ready to see the celebration on the walk of fame.  The ceremony was held at El Capitan in downtown Hollywood.  It was such a cool experience to watch!  There were also a few star studded moments (Heidi Klum, Russi Taylor the voice of Minnie, Katy Perry)

Caught this super cute moment of Russi Taylor telling Heidi Klum that she could rock those Minnie ears.  She was the cutest.

Oh and I also saw Lucy Hale...but no big deal ;)

Such a cool experience and definitely a moment in history seeing Minnie Mouse receive her star!

Hollar Haul

I have shared about Hollar before, they are an online super deal site.  They have so many items (many of them less than $1).  I shop here for household items, gifts, and just random items.  Here's what I got this go round:

Boot Socks, these were $2 for a pack of two.  They are pretty thick and I am really excited to wear these with my new duck boots.

I have been wanting a faux fur scarf for a while, I love how soft and fluffy they are.  This one was $3 and I love the white.

I also picked up this distressed hoodie for $6.  It is actually really nice and thick.  It is more of a tunic on me, super oversized but perfect for lounging around on comfy days.

My last find was this dry shampoo for $4.  I am dry shampoo obsessed and can't go without it.  I haven't tried this one yet but I have high hopes.
