Love is in the Air!

Welcome friends!

I'm SO excited to join LyndseyBrettni, Amanda, and Joy for a fun LOVE Linkup.

I LOVE Valentine's Day, and Ell and I have already kicked it off with decorating and crafts. I feel like each year I think I have all the decor I need, but EVERY year I seem to find more and more I want! 

Who doesn't love Pottery Barn Kids?! I'm obsessing over these adorable VDAY goodies.

One of my favorite bloggers creates these amazing chalkboard prints. These are two of my favorites, and will most likely be making their way to our casa any day now!

One of my other favs when it comes to holidays is Paper Source. They always have the cutest banners, decor, and gifts. AND . . . can I just tell you how excited I am for Ell to pick out her Valentine Day cards for school. I've seen several on Pinterest I love, but these are so cute too. I'd love to incorporate the candy with the card, but still like the idea of a little treat bag. Decisions, decisions! I'll let Ell make the final choice, but a girl needs options right?!

Here's a taste of our decor so far. Ell and I found the wreath in the Target Dollar Spot. She picked the flowers, and we decided to add a little red yarn to it for a pop of color. She was such a good helper and it's so special because we made it together. We LOVE it!

Our banner and hearts came from Paper Source last year, and her heart is from Pottery Barn.

Well friends, I think that's it for now. Thanks SO much for stopping by. 
I can't wait to see all the fun linkups.

Tiny Dancer

Meet our sweet, tiny dancer.

Ell started ballet and tap a few weeks ago, and I have been dying to share some of her pics! I think she may like wearing the outfits more than actually dancing at this point. I can't get over how sweet she looks in her little leotard and tights. Too cute if you ask me!

Class has been going great, and she is loving it as much as I thought she would. Miss Trisha is amazing, and is so loving, patient, and sweet with all her students. We lucked out!

Jose and I get to sit right outside the glass to watch. We always have a front row seat!

She wanted to take a pic with Daddy and this is her pose! Nice Ell.

She gets SUPER excited after class because one of her besties from school arrives for her class. I just love this little friendship she is building with Em. They are so sweet together!

 Next week is our last class, and I think we'll sign her up for the next session. With each class she seems to get better and better, and her attention has been improving with each class. One hour is a long time for a little 3 year old, but she's doing such a great job. No sense in stopping now!

We love you our sweet, tiny dancer.  Mama and Dada are SO very proud of you!
