Valentines Day 2015: You're one in a Minion

Alright, everyone knows my I’m a busy mom sad story song and dance.  Two jobs, Two kids, big house no cleaning lady yada yada yada.  Who says I don’t have time to get crafty?  Not Pinterest.   Hunter V is obsessed with Despicable Me and the minions (you should see him dance like one lol).  So when I came across these twinkies turned minions knowing they would be simple I may have been more excited than Hunter.

I purchased two boxes of twinkies...which btw took me 30 mins to find in the grocery store...who knew they kept them in the bakery section (shows how often we buy twinkies). As I was checking out I came across a box of Despicable me Valentines (that come with tattoos, bonus!) It's like I plan these things.
Printed The Minion printables from here  
Cut them out and glued them on....seriously that simple. 

The box of valentines came with heart stickers that was fun for Hunter to stick on and play a part in making this valentine for his friends.

 I placed a minion twinkie with a valentine in a cellophane party bag and tied it with ribbon.  I know...I have no idea where I get all my creativeness from ;)

This morning Hunter woke up saying he wanted to give valentines to friends…so sweet how excited he gets for holidays now!! 3 more days buddy. 3 more days.

P.S.  I only ate two twinkies ;)

My Valentine's Day Wish List

Based on the below it's safe to say I'm feeling some accessories these days.  Which makes sense considering I'm over winter clothes and not quite into spring/summer ones yet.  To get us all over these winter blues, here's a little Valentines Day eye candy.  

Where to buy: 

Perfume: By Kate Spade - Hunter got me the roller ball of this perfume for Christmas and its my new 

Ring: By Kendra Scott - Have you all seen all the hype going on around the new Kendra Scott Jewelry.  So much gorgeousness but I'm especially buying in with this ring!

Stone Necklaces: Druzy Collection - I'm also buying into this stone craze.  Whether it be candle holders, bookends, or necklaces count me IN!

Candle: By Voluspa - Too pretty to pass up and these colors go perfect in our home.

Lip Gloss: By Bobbie Brown - Anyone else still in search for the perfect nude? I am.

Lip Stick: By Bobbie Brown - okay confession I actually already purchased this in the color watermelon and love it!

Watch: By Daniel Wellington - I've been eyeing this classic for a while now.

Flats: By Tieks - I think this cardinal red is the perfect shade. 

Pearl Necklace: J.Crew Factory - The pearls are too large on my current multi strand pearl necklace.  This one solves that problem. I may or may not have already ordered this as well.

Tassel Necklace: By BaubleBar -  I love the look of layering a tassel necklace under a shorter multi strand pearl necklace. see picture ;)

Leopard Clutch: By Clare V. - little pricy but leopard is a neutral.

Magenta Clutch:  By GiGi New York - I may be the only girl on the face of the earth that does own a bag from GiGi New York yet.  And they come monogrammed....oh man, we're going to have to change this.

Monogram Earrings: By Moon and Lola - Have I mentioned I do love a monogram?

Patent Flats: By J. Crew - It so refreshing to see more pointy toe flats come back.  I need to add a few pairs to the ole rotation. this all too much to ask? Choices, just giving the hubby lots of choices because I'm nice like that.
