Valentine's Day is near!

VDay Balloons

Valentine’s Day is less than 2 weeks away! I love the whole idea of Valentine’s Day, but I also REALLY love Valentine decor. ๐Ÿ˜‰
This will be the 1st year that I will do some sort of decorating for Valentine’s Day. So far, the girls & I have put doily hearts in different sizes in pink, red, and white on our big window in the front of the house. It looks so cute! I also want to put a Valentine wreath on the front door, but haven’t decided how it will look yet. (I want to make it myself.) ๐Ÿ˜€ read more

A 3 day weekend

Hope you all had a great extended weekend–for those of you who had President’s Day off. My hubby did and we enjoyed having extra time together. I hope everyone had a sweet Valentines Day as well!
My hubby surprised me and our girls with jewelry this year! He got me a beautiful chunky turquoise bracelet and got the girls birthstone earrings. Jadyn’s ears aren’t pierced, but will be in the future…so we will save hers until then. ๐Ÿ˜‰ [pics are on Flickr]

I also gave the girls treat bags filled with goodies like cute socks, snacks, etc. Jadyn got a little pink puppy, and Jacey got a pink heart shaped pillow. ๐Ÿ™‚ They loved their surprises! I dressed them in their valentines day shirts that I bought them, and they were so cute. We ate lunch at Space Aliens, then took the girls to dino playland for a bit of fun. read more
