I just LOVE my hubby...!

Ray surprised me this year with reservations to The Melting Pot!! We have never been there but have heard great things about the place, also heard it was expensive...AND IT IS!! It was hard to swallow when I saw the bill..(Ray was using the mens room...)I know naughty me! But it was very sweet and romantic and we just talked and had lots of fun. He always makes me laugh and our waiter was super funny too!! We were going to see Dear John but it was really late and we were stuffed so we went home and hung out with kids and watched Pearl Harbor...for like the 10th time...lol! Thanks babe for a GREAT night out...love you so very much!!



They take your picture before..that was neat!

{{LoVe NoTeS Family Tradition....!}}

This we did for YW beehive class act. and thought it was really cute for the girls to be excited to share this fun tradition with their families! I originally saw this idea over at
http://www.beckyhiggins.com/blog/labels/post-it%20love.html she even has the downloads if you didn't want to do your own labels.

I just tweaked mine a tad. Our family has enjoyed this new tradition...it's fun to see the little notes everywhere! I plan on doing this for my VT too...with the message inside....FuN!!

{Getting ready for Valentine's Day....!}

I was on one of my favorite "crafty" sites theidearoom.blogspot.com (sorry, had the wrong url...ugg)and she had this fun tutorial on how to make these really cute topiarys and balls so I took the plunge.....it was a little time consuming cutting out all the circles but then was easy after that......I of course love the tulle wreath and decided to hang this cute ball in the middle...I love it...it is so valentin-y!

I am also totally excited to say that I am being featured on alittletipsy.blogspot.com today!! I love her blog and apparently she loves mine...so go check her out when you can!!!!

Valentine's Day...and a necklace!!

I have been soo super busy as we "moms" are....I almost forgot to post let alone remember how to post..ha ha this pic is of the girls that morning....Bella would not stay still, so Cambrie's cute hair is cut off.....she said that was ok!
And this was a necklace I made for Sabrina to wear...Cambrie didn't want to wear one, she says they get in the way of running at recess...go figure!

This day is always busy for me, on the 13th it is Cambrie's birthday but because it fell on a Friday....anyhow she ended up being really sick and missing out on her birthday fun at school. So on Saturday which is Valentine's Day I do the "Love Bug" and got these cute heart plates and filled them up with just fun valentinesy candy and such...it was cute but no pic! We took cambrie out for her birthday dinner over at Jake's Place..not my favorite but hey the birthday girl gets what she wants..right! At school on Monday we celeberated her class with treats and the usual "Birthday Crown" the girls wear to school. Her birthday party is this Saturday and it is going to be a "Cooking" party. Should be fun...stay tuned because it will be really cute!

Easy Teacher Valentines...!

On Wednesday for YW....we did these cuties....I have seen the infamous "cake pops" and thought there is no way we could bake those little things in an hour and at the church...so my first thought was to do mini marshmallows and then to do the big ones on sticks..THEN saw them over at Grace Violet...love her blog btw! They were soo easy and the girls had so much fun!
The kids decided they wanted to do these for thier teachers...since I had all the stuff for them I said...ABSOLUTELY!!
We made like a ton...so Ray is giving some to his workers at the shop and the kids have some extra to give to thier friends....it was a fun night!
LOL trying to get a professional shot....yeah right NOT happening!!heehee

Cute Valentine shirts for the girls...

Sabrina reminded me about shirts for Valentines Day.....and I was glad to tell her I had all the stuff to make them...I got these tanks at Target for $1.48 on sale..can't go wrong with that price! and the fabric I already had and the rhinestones!! I just took a cardstock and folded it in half, cut out the heart for the template and then cut the heart into 3 pieces and then used the pieces to cut the fabric....easy! I freehanded the "LOVE" with E-6000 and then glittered it..Sabrina's idea...she is so creative that girl! I went to Ribbons and lace and got some cute chunky zebra ribbon for thier hair. For Bella over at Gap they had all thier valentine outfits on sale and so got her this really cute heart jumpsuit for %65 off PLUS friends and family day percent off...FUN!!
I used again the glue to create puffy dots and then glittered them....rhinestones on the other dots.

Valentine Visiting Teaching Message....

These turned out sooo cute...except that I had to travel to 3 Targets before I got to Michaels to get the tin mailboxes..and spent $3 more than I wanted to...only because they were a $1 at Target...I hate that! Inside is postcards that have the message on it. Actually 5 total because the message had just 5 quotes on the Divine Role of Women. The recipe is a yummy strawberry cake that I got from a friend of mine...it is so yummy!

My Valentine's card...!

I got this Martha Stewart glue PAD....yes PAD...and have to say I was totally stoked on this, but NOT impressed..sorry Martha I do love you..(or should I say "behind the scenes" staff..!) It was hard to work with and I had to use the refill glue to get even enough glue on my stamp for the glitter to be enough! Or maybe my glue pad was just too dry..mmm.

any how this card was simple and very easy....love the pink houndstooth!

Valentines-y Banner...!

Got this done awhile ago, but have been so busy lately with the kids and just life..!! I think it turned out cute.....um yeah HAD to put the zebra in there somewhere...heehee!







I really like the hearts...got it all at Scrapbooks etc. and some at Divine Memories...!

Getting ready for Valentine's...!

These are some cute valentine ideas I had in my files.....
Cute Valentine Countdown on a cookie sheet...I would probably do mine a litte more brighter and funkier with lots of embellishments..but you get the idea..!
This is off of Heather Bailey's site..LOVE HER! She has a pattern you can download too..

This is really cute...
A more masculine card for your hunie...! OOHHHH Glitter..heehee

I really like all the little details to this card...!

Cute lil' teacher valentine...I already have this paper too...

This is super cute, the tickets open up and have "Be my sweet love..."on the inside. This one I will probably do for my card!

very cute valentine bouqet....

I love these banners too.....This one is too lite with the letters, I probably would do mine darker..already got the paper for mine and will do it next week sometime! Over at Scrapbooks they have a super cute one! BTW got this glue ink pad that I can use for my letter stamps and then glitter it.....so excited to use it....love glitter!

Okay this one I dig...get it "dig"..lol Cambrie will do this one for the "boy" valentines for her class. Now I have to find the little shovels....individually hopefully!
