There's so many smart and funny and good things on the Internet. Here's a few things from this month!

This Bachelor recap is especially funny since I just caught up last week.

A grandma reviews Fifty Shades of Grey.

A good article on mothering and quitting.

Our new favorite glass to keep stocked in our cupboards.

Jimmy Fallon is rocking it lately : A Fresh Prince parody | Saved By The Bell | J. Fallon & T. Swift.

Black and white engineer prints.

Am loving this Orla Kiely print at Target.

How to have happy siblings.

And, a sweet link full of handmade valentines.

A little something to read over the weekend, enjoy!

I love when holidays fall on weekends. Especially Valentine's Day. It just feels a little more happy and special, don't you think?

I wanted to keep things simple around here so we stuck with picking some flowers, heart shaped foods and lunch at Olive Garden to carry on our tradition.

Other moments of our day:
Lia cutting up her fingers on a thorny branch. All is good now!
Watching Valentine's Day with my guy. Another tradition we carried on.
Snapping some photos of my babies.
A trip to Target for toilet paper. Because, let's face it, we're parents and V-Day isn't all romance around here.
Opening little gifts and reading new books.
Eating lots of chocolate!

Now, here's to Easter. Because Lia can't stop asking about it!
 

CURRENTLY | FEBRUARY

Reading... Where'd You Go, Bernadette for book club and Yes Please for me. 

Wearing... the most perfect little black tank and nude flats. 

Pinning... this take on the wedge salad and a black & white house tour. 

Watching... Nico change every day. I almost cried in bed last night when I realized I can no longer remember just how tiny he was when we brought him home from the hospital.

Excited... for a surprise in March!

Still changing... diapers. Lots of diapers.

Wanting... more striped walls!

Making... painted flying discs with my girl. We love this line of art supplies.

Binging... on Scandal.

Also, thankful... for Netflix. Keeps me awake during those late night feedings.

Wanting... a bunch of yellow daffodils.

Finding joy... in babywearing.

Listening... to Hey Jude because it almost instantly calms Nicolas.

Learning... how to balance the act of mothering two who each have their own distinct needs and wants.

On the menu... lots of pasta and a request from the kiddo : cinnamon rolls!

Please feel free to link up any of your "currently" posts in the comments, xo!

ON A TUESDAY

It's a free day home from school today! What should have been freezing rain turned into just really cold rain overnight but I'm not one to complain about not having to get three people dressed and out of the house in the rain, you know.

Today looked like...

Tummy time. Nico is a fan so far!
Reruns of Scandal. I started the first season last week and oh, it's good.
Baking cookies and doing art projects with my girl.
Finishing a book from my probably too-large stack. But can you ever have too many books to read?
Washing bottles and laundry and wiping down counters.
Snuggling a sweet but fussy baby boy.
Macaroni and cheese.
And the sounds of cartoons mixed in with little girl laughs and baby boy cries.

Lia: rocked her well visit weighing in at 41 lbs, 40 inches and perfect.

Nicolas: went through a little nap boycott but looked handsome as ever doing it.

Lia: I asked for a silly face.

Nicolas: ten tiny fingers with a surprisingly good grip.
