Happy Friday friends! Are you celebrating Valentine’s Day this weekend? I honestly had not thought much about the holiday this week, but then I had to help my youngest son get his school Valentine’s Day cards together. I am so glad his school was able to have a Valentine’s party. It is one of the cutest activities of the school year.

This Week’s Friday Favorites

Anyway as usual, I am sharing a few Friday favorites in home, school and family.

Valentine’s Day Outfit

Are you feeling the Valentine’s vibe this week? I am going to admit that I have not been all that organized for Valentine’s Day. I did manage to get a few treats for my kids and my husband. But, we had not decided on any plans for Valentine’s Day.

I found this cute heart top at Marshalls this week and I was feeling a little more festive.  I’m wearing my most comfortable black pants that I got from Athleta this past fall. I wear these moto pants several times a week.

Valentine's Day outfit idea

These pants can be worn dressed up or dressed down and they are form fitting so they hold in all the right places.  I also got a pair of heart shaped clay earrings from an Etsy shop. I wasn’t sure I would get on the Clay Earring trend because I thought the earrings would be too heavy. But, these earrings are SO light and comfortable to wear.

New Cozy Joggers

This week my daughter turned fourteen. She and I did a little shopping last weekend and she used some of her birthday money to buy these cute black joggers.  It is hard to see all the cute detailing on these joggers in the black but the cuffs are cute and there is a side detail that makes them a little different. These are the comfiest pants. I truly love Athleta pants. You pay a little more but their clothing lasts forever and can be worn over and over again.

The joggers looked so cute on her that I decided to buy them for myself. I was able to find a coupon to use to save a little money. I love the Brooklyn Jogger style from Athleta, so I just love this lined version.

These are a great transitional pant that we can wear into spring and early summer.

Cute Gift for Animal Conservation

My husband found the sweetest gift for my daughter for her birthday. If you have a girl who loves to save the animals, the jewelry from the Wildlife Collections might be perfect.

He got her a bracelet that comes a personal card to track a sea turtle! It is really a neat gift idea. There are other animals to track including polar bears and orcas. We looked up her turtle and could not believe the journey it has been on in the last year.

Wildlife collections review

The turtle is tracked daily and you can get a lot of specific stats. The turtle my daughter is following has traveled over 872 miles in the last 200 days. I did see a note that most transmitters work for 1-2 years.

This could be a fun gift for the Easter basket!

Wantable Athletic Wear

Earlier this week, I shared my first experience with the Wantable Active Edit clothing subscription box. All the details on what I liked about this clothing subscription for athleisure clothing is here.

    Those joggers are so cute! I have some comfy ones, but a cuter pair would be nice! I’ve recently seen those animal tracker bracelets – it’s a really cool idea, and I think I’m going to do a giveaway for one sometime soon!
