Passion For Fashion #40 : Happy Valentine's Day! :

Happy Valentine's Day, friends!!
I REALLY wish I would have thought ahead and had a cute pink or red or heart-patterned outfit for you today... but, I totally forgot about Valentine's Day!
I had a moment of clarity last weekend & I remembered to pick up some v-day cards for the kids to bring to school... so much for the awesome DIYs one I was planning of making with them.

Ironically, even though I almost forgot Valentine's Day and only grabbed some generic v-day cards from the dollar store, someone was kind enough to nominate me for a blog award over at My So Called Chaos.  I'm up for the Miraculous Mommy Award!

My So-Called Chaos Best of Blog Awards

I may suck at DIY, but I sure do love my kids!! I'm just honored that someone out there thinks I'm a cool mom... I'd love your vote, of course, but at the very least I'd love for you to check out all the lovely nominees and vote for your favorites!  Voting ends February 20th!

Also, as you can probably see from the pics above, I've totally lost my tan from the Dominican!  I mean... "tanned" for me is just a shade or two above pale, so I shouldn't be surprised, but it would have been nice to hang onto the reminder of my fabulous getaway a little longer.  Doesn't help that it has been cold as heck since I've been back and I've basically been hibernating...  What's the weather like where you are?

I can't wait to check out all your stylish posts this week!! I'm sure you will all be rocking some fab looks!
