Valentines Love

Valentines day... really a silly little holiday. It sucks if you are alone, and it puts pressure on those who have someone to impress :) But for me its super fun! Well it was a little hectic this year since my husband and I pretty much agreed on not buying gifts this year to save money, and then the day prior I went to use his truck (because I have to leave my car with the carseat) and he says "no wait you can't use it!" WHAT you-you-you. So I woke up V-day to a sweet gift from the hubs :)

A killer little tank and the blingin flip flops I've been wanting!
Then he bailed to work and I myself, got to work! Cleaned up the house as usual and took off to do a Costco run, alone. That was part of his gift :) the only shopping he usually has to do because we come home with such a massive and heavy amount. But I did it alone. Then went to the bike shop and got him a cool little tool, and some chocolate from Trader Joes. Came home, had lunch with my little Valentine. Put him down for a nap and finished the house, and made Shannon his card :) Who needs to sit and rest on a day like that? Anyways when Shannon got home he had these...

I poured a glass of wine and him a drink made some dinner (salmon OH yeah). We had a
romantic dinner with our son :)

Finished the night playing with the kid. The best part of the day though was all the little texts and such I got from Shannon. It reminded me of when we were first dating. All the giddiness and googliness, love and smothering! It was great. Nice to remind ourselves how much we love each other, its so easy to get caught up in the day to day, and all the craziness that comes with being parents. But once upon a time we were just us, so crazy in love. Aww what a day :)


  1. so sweet!!! :) and LOVE that he got you the sandals!

  2. because your feet were crossed i had to stare at that photo for a minute and try and figure out if the shoes were on the wrong feet, or what exactly was wrong. I haven't had enough coffee to make sense of simple stuff like that....thats bad
