Be Mine

How was your love day, everybody? Mine was filled to the brim with PINK and flowers and sweet treats and even sweeter friends.

The sweet boys I nanny for gave me FLOWERS. How cute is that?! My heart exploded when the oldest (4 years old) pulled the bouquet out from behind his back and said, “Happy Valentine!!”

Of course, we had to put together old school Valentines for our friends. Temporary tattoos were a must! And who doesn’t LOVE Fun Dip?

Our kitchen was a DISASTER during this whole process and we were blaring a Beyonce concert that we found on YouTube. 2 WHOLE HOURS of the queen, y’all. Wow. #blest.

I’m a sucker for funfetti if you can’t tell already. Its my absolute favorite.


ALSO!! PSA!!! THIS candle is on sale at Target right now and WHOA its the best thing I’ve ever smelled in my whole entire freaking life. They have a babier version that’s $8 I think? And this jumbo one you see above was only $12. I KNOW RIGHT? Who knew? You continue to impress me, Target. Hurry to your local store before they’re all gone!!

We ended the weekend with a late night showing of How to Be Single. SO funny. Go see it, please. That’s an order. It actually made me cry. The movie is all about learning to love yourself and being comfortable on your own. I think it made me cry because the main character, Alice (played by Dakota Johnson), learns how to be okay with who she is and what life has thrown at her and that’s something I think we all struggle with, relationship or not. It was a really uplifting movie and it doesn’t matter if you’re dating someone – its a must see. And Valentines Day or not, I sure do love going out with my friends! Don’t wait for a holiday to roll around to make plans, catch up with those who make your heart happy, and do sweet things. Call your mama and tell her you love her. Take your BFF to lunch just because. Treat yoself to a mani/pedi. Spread some love, people.

    Love this! I will definitely go to Target and check out that candle. So glad you had such a wonderful valentines day.

    • Savannah Ward

      Love you Grandma! Hope you had a happy valentines day too 🙂

  • Anna Hubbard

    It sounds like you had a wonderful day! And that movie is definitely on my list of “need to see immediately” movies!

    • Savannah Ward

      You should totally see it! Let me know what you think after! 🙂

  • I think that’s so fun that you watched a Beyonce concert online! That target candle seems amazing – I’m candle and Target obsessed 🙂

    • Savannah Ward

      Target is SO dangerous. I’ll go in needing 3 things and leave with 47.

  • Being a nanny is the most rewarding job ever! Holidays are my favorite with my little ones! I really want to see How to be Single, especially after your raving review. I totally agree that it’s so important for everyone to learn to love themselves, relationship or not!

    • Savannah Ward

      I agree! Its honestly so exhausting but its the best job and I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else. You definitely should see How to Be Single, its a great movie and Dakota Johnson is SO good. Honestly I saw 50 Shades of Grey and I really didn’t like her but she’s so awkward and funny and relatable in this new movie.

  • Miss ALK

    I’ll have to check out that candle!! Sounds yummy!

    xoxo A

    • Savannah Ward

      Its so nice, I’ve already used like 1/4 of it and I’ve had it for a weekend. Oops!

  • Sounds like you had the perfect weekend – much better than mine, for sure! I spent most of the weekend working on our house renovation, probably way more than I should’ve because I’m incredibly sore today and in a lot of pain. Physical activity is most definitely NOT for me!

    Both the candle and the movie sound lovely, will definitely have to check out both!

    XO, Oksana from

  • Unfortunately my Valentine’s day was spent taking care of my food poisoned boyfriend and working at the gym… haha. But so glad you had a great weekend!

    All the Best,
