I’ve always liked Valentine’s Day as an adult, but having a child has made me LOVE it again. Lord help me when Arden is old enough to take Valentine’s to school. Someone sign me up to be the room mom for that party!!! 🙂
We celebrated the day of love for 2 days at our house. Is it because I love it that much? Not quite…actually because I couldn’t think of anything to make for dinner on Wednesday, so I made what I had planned for Valentine’s Day instead. Nice, huh?
Here’s a little look at our two days of looooove….
|My funny Valentine. Just looking at these pictures makes me want to wake her up and squeeze her right now. Guess I’ll have to settle for monitor stalking instead.|
|Valentines for our families and her out-of-town boyfriends!|
|And the cutest confirmation that they made it to Wichita 🙂 I can’t even handle it.|
|Gifts! Arden got a new book, a ball (which I may or may not have gotten in the pet aisle at Target) and the cutest little tree monogram that she can hang jewelry on when she’s older.
Hazel got a bone…which she’s gnawing on as we speak.
And not pictured–Chris got me a steam mop…and I’m not even mad about it!
|Arden and I had a great time making Chris’ gift with some of our friends…and I just think it’s so special. Thank you, Pinterest 🙂
And the real way to this guy’s heart–Reeses anything.
|Easiest recipe ever…and they never disappoint!|
|Gifts for Arden’s baby friends! I wanted to buy ever Vday fabric at JoAnn’s, but finally settled on these 4.|
|We enjoyed a little Black Walnut lunch with those baby friends 🙂
I imagine they’re thinking, “um, is this a date?”
|And finally, this picture came all the way from Hannibal to make my day.
My nephew Luke, the heartbreaker 🙂
Well, gotta run…Chris and I have big plans for the rest of the holiday…
Finish Season 1 of Homeland. We are OBSESSED!!!!
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
Happy Valentine's Day little Arden! Love your idea for your husband… I wish I had seen that before today so I could have stolen that idea 🙂 I also love your little bows that you made. TOO cute!
Thanks Rebecca! Maybe it could be a Father's Day present??
I just laughed out loud as after a long day with my little man, I told my husband all I wanted to do tonight was start season 2 of Homeland! The end of season 1 is so good..enjoy!
I'm jealous!!! I have a feeling we'll be ordering season 2 soon…and probably adding showtime before #3 starts 🙂
Darcy Stingerie says
Um, I LOVE the bows!! Would you mind sending me your links for making them or are they all on your post from awhile back when you were first making Arden's amazing head bands?! I need to get on it for our little girl! 🙂 Happy Valentine's Day!
Thanks Darcy! I just used the felt bow instructions from my old post and used regular fabric instead. Happy crafting 🙂
Sara Holt says
Aww she is precious! She definitely makes for the perfect Valentine! (:
Thanks Sara! Next year you'll have your little Valentine too 🙂
So fun!! You are going to be the best room mom ever for sure just by these creations this year!! I love them all!
The card was the CUTEST!!!
And Homeland – don't even get me started. Best.show.ever.
Have you watched the Downton Abbey? I kind of want to start that because it's on amazon prime….
Start watching Downton now!!!! You will LOVE it!
Good grief, I just think she is the cutest! I love her little headbands, too. Arden's Vday cards were precious!! And obviously you will be the best "homeroom mom" with all your adorable craftiness.. Glad it was a great day, amazing how much more love these babies fill our hearts with, huh?:)

I don't think that little chick can get any cuter! Oh and Homeland is the most amazing show…can't wait for season 3!
So cute!!! Chris and I are obsessed with Homeland. We just finished season 1!
