Two weeks away from Valentine's Day-order your Teleflora flowers now!

Can you believe we are only two weeks away from Valentine's Day? My favorite part of the day is when a bouquet of flowers arrives from my husband to my daughter. She absolutely adores her special flowers and it really is a special memory that will last a lifetime. My husband has always ordered her flowers from Telefora and we have always been amazed at the quality of the flowers. This year the bouquet of choice is the Telflora's True Lovelies Bouquet:

The flowers arrived exactly as pictured in an amazing vase. I love that it is high quality and something that we can use for years to come.  Each year in spring my daughter plants seeds in each of her vases and recalls what the flowers looked like and which one was her favorite. This specific bouquet features a delightful mix of red roses, pink alstroemeria, red miniature carnations, huckleberry, seeded eucalyptus, and lemon leaf. It is a perfect combination that smells incredible.   My husband's favorite part is  the ordering process. It is incredibly easy to order online and they will call to set up a drop off time based on your schedule. There are so many great options this year for Valentine's day and all year long! My favorite is the Love's Passion Bouquet by Teleflora.

Each bouquet is hand made and professionally designed by a florist in your very own neighborhood which means freshly cut flowers! There are so many options for every budget-you will be sure to find something wonderful for Valentine's Day and all special occasions in your life. #HandmadeByTF #Teleflora

First Valentine's Craft of the season!

We have so much more space to decorate in the new house and I am seriously lacking in any Valentine's decor. I decided to start with something to put over the mantle and this amazing craft was born:

The four pieces of paper are printer paper and  the background is a large sheet of construction paper.
We dipped the feet and hands in ink and painted the letters with black paint. It was a very quick and easy craft that will be sure to last for years. We may even take in to laminate to be sure that it will stand the test of time. What is your favorite Valentine's Day craft?

Harry Potter at Universal Studios

Our last stop was Universal Studios for our Harry Potter fan. She was so excited to find her special wand and do all things magical. Our first stop was Diagon Alley.

I was so impressed with how realistic the entire thing was-the shops, the people, even the brick. My daughter was on cloud nine and couldn't believe she was in Diagon Alley!

We had so much fun purchasing a new wand and trying out all the spells. The best part was that each magical spot had a witch or wizard ready to help to make sure your interactive wand would complete the trick.

Then it was time to board the Hogwararts express to go over to the school. I would say if you can only visit one park choose do Diagon Alley. It had so much more to offer and really was amazing. I cannot wait to go back with more time and explore the remainder of the park!

Legoland for New Years Eve

My daugher was so excited to Legoland Florida! We had been to California so we were looking forward to seeing the difference. My daughter is really into Lego friends but it was a bit disappointing. The area was small and the lego friend girls were not out and about or available for meet and greets. My daughter did like the fountain you turn on my walking on certain squares. Here are a few of her favorite exhibits and ride:

Although Florida Legoland is larger we still enjoyed California more. I felt like it was more spread our and easier to navigate. They did have a great New Years firework display with glasses that made it look like bricks. A new area of the park will be open shortly and it really is a great time for any lego fan.
