Happy Valentines Day {Blog Hop Freebies & Fun!}

I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing weekend with a little Valentine's Day planning mixed in.  I'm teaming up with my Elementary Entourage buddies today to bring you a blog hop filled with Freebies and Fun!

I just love the friends and connections I have made through blogging. I only wish I had started this adventure earlier, but then again if I had I might not have met all of my sweet Elementary Entourage friends.  This winter we did a little Secret Santa gift and card exchange, and if you follow us on FB and IG you probably saw a lot of cute gift swapping going on.  I loved connecting with my blogging besties in this way and who doesn't love REAL mail! I mean don't get me wrong we order a ridiculous amount of stuff on Amazon in our house so packages make a regular appearance on our doorstep, but surprises are so much more fun! I was so excited when the girls and I decided to do another exchange for Valentine's Day.

I was so lucky to have Stephanie from The Learning Chambers choose my name because she picked out the cutest things for me and Madelynn to enjoy! If you don't follow her, you should check out the awesome ideas she has here.
Okay, okay onto the fun. First up, this adorable mug and gift card to Starbucks. I am a serious Target addict so I was totally eyeing these up for my Secret Valentine too. There were so many different cute sayings too! Be sure to grab one for the coffee lover in your life if you're still in search of a gift! And I just love that this starbucks gift card is a "Texas Exclusive" I'm going to have to make a special trip there tomorrow while I'm out running errands for sure.
And what's even better than coffee? Quality fun with my baby girl. Yup, Stephanie sent some super cute crafting fun for Madelynn and I to do together! She's the best :) We've recently discovered the fun of stickers, so these were perfect!
 Someone's a little excited to decorate a garland.
Peeling stickers is serious business.
 Finding her groove...Okay maybe this is just a little bit fun.
 Onto craft number two, photo frames.
 After a few attempts at eating the foam stickers, Madelynn finally discovered that they were actually sticky just like the paper ones.
 Pretty sure she was thinking about taking another bite here.
 And our {finished} products. Just need to add some photos to those frames. Thanks Stephanie for a fun Saturday morning activity!

    1. YAY for IN! NExt time you'll just have to come up to WI for a visit :)

  4. Awwww Madelynn is so stinkin' adorable!! I'm so glad she enjoyed the stickers! My two year old thinks stickers are the best thing ever! One time he left one on his shirt and I didn't see it and washed it. It was a super big pain to peel the sticker off of his shirt.

    I'm also glad that the mug made it save and sound! I'm always worried when I mail out breakable things. You and I share an addiction to Target :).
