February 2021 Top 10.

Monday, March 1, 2021

Y'all, it's Monday. And MARCH?!?!?! Wow, that is absolutely bonkers.

Not going to lie, I had a great weekend. Huddy and I went to the lake while Anna had her first tournament of the season. Now, I'm hurrying to write this post so that I can get on the porch to read and enjoy the beautiful sun that is shining today. 

And then Monday comes to ruin it all.

I'm going into this week with a bright attitude. It's supposed to rain and I have a lot of work, but I'm going to stay optimistic...Hopefully. 

Today's post is a little different but I thought it'd be fun. I'm sharing my top 10 from February!! 

number 1...lake time

Probably my favorite of all favorites was getting to spend some time at the lake this month. After not going at all in January, the three weekends that I spent there were so relaxing and refreshing. Nothing beats the ease that the lake brings. Family, laughter, lake...Not much more that you need in life ;) But seriously, I love these weekends that I get to spend at my happy place. 

number 2...cuddles with ollie

I swear I talk about Ollie in every single one of my posts. I'm sorry - His cute face is too much for me to handle!! I feel like Ollie was super cuddly this month. Maybe the cold/dreary weather bummed him out as it did us. But I'm not complaining because I love all the snuggles that we get!!

number 3...galentine's

I got to see Abby this month, so that was definitely a favorite!! We attempted to have a To All The Boys I've Loved Before movie marathon, which didn't really happen, but we still had a great time!!

number 4...valentine's day

Speaking of which, our Valentine's Day this year was so much fun!! We spent it inside because #2020/2021, but we still managed to have a great time!! We made a Valentine's "candy board," and it was both cute and yummy!!

number 5...just dance

Want something fun to occupy the whole family? I got the perfect thing...Just Dance. We rediscovered Just Dance this month, and we had SO MUCH FUN!! Laughter, family, a little bit of exercise...So fun. My favorite is One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful, Anna likes Shakira's Waka Waka, and Huddy likes Ghostbusters. Seriously, something for the whole family!

number 6...yoga pants

It's been established that I love comfy clothes. Seriously. Nothing beats a cute and comfy look. Well, this month, yoga pants did just that for me. Definitely a favorite!! 

number 7...baseball & softball

While it's not necessarily one of my "tops" from the month, it is Anna and Huddy's. Baseball and softball season has started back up and it's in full swing...Literally. Huddy and Anna have now had their first tournaments of the season and so basically, our life will be filled with softball and baseball until November. Sigh. Oh well.

number 8...indoor picnic

When it's super cold outside and all you want is to go out and have a picnic, you do it inside. Well, that's at least what we did. We just set out a blanket on our living room floor and ate up our yummy lunches. #improvising

number 9...snow day

WE GOT SNOW. It may have been flurries, but it made this Alabama girl's heart happy. You better believe that I spent the whole day in my jammies, reading. What could be better?! 

number 10...SUN

And then the light at the end of the tunnel...the sun. After a whole month of me wishing the sun would come out from tomorrow, it FINALLY did!! It really was the light at the end of the tunnel.

Well, those were my "tops" of the month!! What were some of your favorite things from February? Thank you so much for reading and I will see you back here on Wednesday!!


  1. Your trips to the lake sound so fun, I am jealous of your reading by the lake time! It sounds magical! Awww, tell Ollie that I miss him and need to see him again to get more cuddles!! You might know this by now, but I am awful at watching full movies with friends! I get so distracted and talk the whole time! 😂 I had so much fun seeing you too! We are loving our sunshine as well! Happy March 1st, Ella!
