Is anyone else still trying to recoup from all the snow we've had in North Carolina?! After a nice little snowcation from work I was spoiled rotten which made this week long and hard!! Only 3 more hours of work and I can enjoy my 'weekend' with my handsome man!! Hopefully I'll trade my snowy pictures from some sunny ones...NC weather is straight up crazy!! Happy Saturday everyone!!

I'll Be

1 John 4:19 | We love because He first loved us

Swinging by to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!!

Since I have yet another snow day on my hands, I've finally decided to paint our purple master bedroom to a much more appropriate gray!! Wish me luck, I'll be kept company by Edwin McCain, Dave Barns, Brett Dennen, and Joshua Radin on repeat - what else do you expect, after all it is Valentine's Day...

Five Screenshots on Friday

Time for my go to link up, Five on Friday, with Christina from Carolina Charm!!

I had my last iPhone for over two years, she had been dropped time and time again yet always toughed it out - until Christmas Eve (of all nights) when I dropped her from my husband's lifted truck and I instantly knew it was bad news bears!! I was being lazy about using my upgrade for a new phone until this past weekend... when I dropped her again... but for the very last time... into my toilet...

Goodbye nasty broken toilet phone, hello new iPhone!! I've spent the last couple days trying to reorganize and re-download everything to my phone so I can feel somewhat normal. This Friday I'll be sharing my five via screenshots !! 

One | Special thanks to Marquis for my new background!! Check out her blog at Simply Clarke if you want the free download!! 

Two | I organized my speed dial!! Is it weird that my favorites all have "matching" photos?! Ha ha, once I started I just couldn't stop...

Three | I joined bloglovin' this week!! I will say it's definitely easier to read through my newsfeed this way!!

Four | This definitely happened yesterday!! What an amazing pick me up, to come back from my lunch break to a vanilla latte and chocolate pastry!! 

Five | Now it's time for date night!! Thank to Cherish, the hubby and I will be checking out Bad Daddy's!! All she had to do was talk about her turkey burger with brie and apples, plus the drool worthy photos, and I was totally game!! 

Happy weekend to all, only seven more days til Valentines!! Does anyone have plans made yet?!

B Lovin'

I guess it's time for me to join the tides, and bloglovin' - I do like to catch up on reading a post or two during my lunch break and it seems to be the way to go for mobile reading...

Therefore it's time to link my accounts; which honestly took me a good 45 minutes to figure out!! I'm sure Marquis (who installed/designed my blog) would be shaking her head right now. Apparently I'm no good at "code" or getting links to show up how I want them?!

So finally here's the finished product of all my time and efforts...

Follow my blog with Bloglovin 

Ta da!! So short and seemingly simple, ha ha!! I hope everyone has a happy humpday, the weekend is almost here!!

My Special Someone

Today I'm linking up with Brianna at Endlessly Beloved via Taylor Rae at Taylored and Turquoise. 

What better topic for February than that special someone, my husband!! Here's my ten favorite things about my stud in plaid.

One | He loves me. It is my favorite thing about our relationship, he loves me and I love him. A simple truth that keeps our life together alive and strong. 

Two | He loves my body. It might seem weird to put this in writing but I am thankful for his desire for me. I never realized how important this is to my marriage until recently. He compliments me, encourages me, and silences my insecurities. He loves and desires my body and only my body. I am blessed and thankful for this.

Three | He protects me. Aside from the fact that he is southern raise and basically owns an artillery - I have always felt safe in his arms. He always stand up for me and is never far from my corner. 

Four | He is generous. This is something I've always been impressed with. He gives freely and doesn't think twice. He is much more of a free spirit in this sense but it makes me a better person to look through his eyes. 

Five | He is driven. Since knowing him in high school he has always had focused career goals. He doesn't settle for okay, he always strives to be best of the best in his field. I believe in him and know he can accomplish anything he sets his mind to. 

Six | He is a good friend. He is a brother to his friends and family alike. He is loyal and never fails to be there when someone needs him. 

Seven | He loves our home. We can sit on the couch and watch movies for hours or lay next to each other while reading into the early hours of the morning. He loves spending time with me and doesn't need a list of activities to occupy his day. 

Eight | He makes me laugh. He has a crazy sense of humor that is uniquely his own. He always knows what to say to make me laugh and keep me smiling. 

Nine | He challenges me. He doesn't let me complain or have self pity, which I am sometimes guilty of. He always has my back and pushes me to be the best version of myself.  

Ten | He is a man of God. Even during our early years of dating he always impressed me with his faith. He prays daily, and constantly challenges me by example. He is the spiritual leader of our family and I love him for that.
