Five on Friday vol. 11

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE!!! Hope you're all having a wonderful day, enjoying yummy candy, baked goods & all heart-shaped things. :) 

One // 
Bennett had his preschool Valentine's Day party this week!! It was fun to put together the valentine's for his classmates, and then watch his excitement as he opened up all of the cards/candy he got at the party. I can't believe my little man is old enough to be passing out Valentine's. Going to pout in the corner now. ;)

The boys have been loving this Melissa & Doug train set I got them for Christmas! They actually play pretty well together. Bennett has certain trains he plays with, and so does Easton- so it works out well, with minimal fighting ;) But seriously, one of the best toy investments I've made!!

I have been trying to push myself harder at the gym. When I feel like I'm exhausted and can't do anything else... I put in another 10-15 minutes. I feel like I feel my best when I put in that little extra effort! I have so much more on my mind about this whole fitness/exercise thing -- but I think I will probably save those brain dumps for a different posts. They need more than a bullet point :)

I'm heading to the gym this morning, and then my Husband is coming home from work early to take me out on a REAL date. We haven't gone out for Valentine's Day since.... forever. No really, I don't think we've even celebrated V-Day since we've had kids. But we're working on making a bigger deal out of the holidays, because I think it's good for the kids to see and get excited about things. He won't tell me where he's taking me tonight, but I'm sure you will see something about it on my Instagram feed. :)

Oh your watch. I keep thinking about getting one just not sure if I should pull the trigger. I despise working out so maybe it will help to actually see my progress???

Bennett looks so cute posing with his Vday goodies. He is so adorable Mandy.
