galentine's day goodies!

I feel like this pic is so poetic ...but no, it's really just about me drinking wine at 9am  [pink spray roses were a grocery store find, $4, Valentine's plastic wine glass, $1 from Target]

friday?!  snow day?!  that's all I needed to hear at 7am before I planned my own little solo party.  I've been so busy the last couple of weekends that I wasn't sure when I'd have time to sit down and write out some Galentine's Day greetings --Valentine's Day is a whole other story and I haven't even thought about my birthday invites -- but hey, 1/3 is a start, right?! 

I had already picked up a couple of goodies from Broadway Paper earlier in the week, so after a quick trip to Target (I can't believe I used 'quick trip' and Target together), my winter storm shut-in was in full effect!  I turned on Whitney Houston's Greatest Hits, slipped back into sweatpants and fuzzy socks, pinned my hair up and at 9am, I baked myself some chocolate chip cookies and cracked open one of my Christmas gifts: Vin Chocaolat Noir wine from Cooper's Hawk - gifted by one of Eddie's sister...clearly she knows my heart!  #adulting

so if you're on-the-go like me but want to put together a little gathering with your girlfrands this weekend, here's some starter ideas that won't cost you more than $40 and a 30-minute Target trip (if I can get out of there in 30 minutes, you certainly can too!)

this diamond banner was the first thing I saw when I walked into the store...and how perfect is this for a Galentine's Day get together or ...you may just see this make a reappearance in a few weeks for my birthday! [Target, $3,]

a dozen adorable cards with sunny envelopes for all my best homegirls - duh, no brainer!   heads up - I found these on a featured endcap near the Girls' section at Target when I was heading to cards and stationary.   These are Junk Food brand (yes, the folks that make the comfy t-shirts!) [Target, $8]
