St. Valentine's Day 2013




I thought I was so clever with my wooden hearts valentine, and Gabe had to go pull this one on me...
Where does this boy come from?? The best part....girl scout cookie thin mints. Halleluiah! He knows me well. (Btw, do you eat them frozen or no?) But as always, my favorite is getting a hand written note from someone I love so much.

For the kids I made them something my mom used to make us growing up - eggs in a basket. They were more excited about getting to eat at their new little table:)

There's a reason I am blogging my Valentine: To remind you that chivalry is not dead, and that dating can continue when you are married if you decide its important enough:) 


K all the love and sap is over for the season-don't worry! 
We are celebrating Gabe's b-day tomorrow and I now need to step up my game...geesh. 
Time to scheme..
Happy Valentine's Day lovers!

  5. Gabe nailed it. haha. So sweet!! And I love egg in the hole. Perfect. For me--thin mints are best frozen--but either way works. :) Hope you have a good one!

  15. Awe, your kids are so cute at their little table! I love how the holiday just comes alive with little ones:) My hubby gives me handwritten cards every holiday/anniversary and I love it. It means so much more to me than a rushed gift or flowers.
