Awesome Valentine's Day

Good grief it has been busy in this house!  We had our Valentine's Day celebration Saturday night at one of my favorite places, Steiner Ranch Steakhouse.  And then I actually made cookies and chocolate candy things for Scarlett's daycare buddies.  Yep...rolled that cookie dough right out of the tube and into the oven.

The most stressful thing was getting Bill's V-Day card and gift.  I am awful at buying greeting cards. Birthday, Christmas, Valentine's Day...I always get something lame. Usually I'm overwhelmed by the racks of paper and cartoon images, so I wind up picking the first card that doesn't have a picture of a kitten on it.

But not this year!  I found the perfect card for Bill...

He loved it, which I think says a whole lot about our relationship.

I also scored major points with this little guy:

I don't think he has a name yet, but he's very popular at work with Bill.

I would rate this as a successful Valentine's Day.  Next up is our anniversary and Bill's birthday in March.  I should start now, but I'm sure I will wait until the last minute and panic as usual.

In the meantime, here's another Valentine e-card that I think is just perfect.

Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. Hi Lori! Thanks for stopping by. I'm new to blogging so I'm just trying to figure things out. I'm following you now!

  3. Glad to hear y'all had a great Valentine's day. And, truly, there is no greater compliment to anyone than the fact that you are willing to shiv someone for them. That kind of love runs as wide as it does deep.
