lots to love

i've never been one to get all excited & mushy over valentines
so we've always just done it with the boys
made over it a tiny bit with them
unfortunately they are starting to get a little less than thrilled
making valentines with me for their friends!
so maybe next year, we'll just buy the sign n folds

they didn't like my cutesie tag 
"make no mistake,
have a happy valentines day"
attached to a bag w/ mini erasers from the $1 spot

oh well
i bettcha they'll love the 
heart shaped rice krispie treats dipped in white chocolate 
in their lunch box!
not to mention the red crush soda to go with dinner tonight.

enough on that
there are lots of things i love
inspired by this lovely lady
i feel like i could just copy & paste much of hers

instead i'll try to add my own
but i totally indentify with her love of 
target, chipotle, 
having our windows open on a february day
an afternoon nap
my soft polka dot jammers
do i need to mention chikfila
my family
(the one born into
and the one i married into)
flip flop tan lines
phone calls from girl friends
crafternoons with my girls
hearing birds chirp a little the last week
rice krispie treats
sweat shirts & blue jeans
monday night = dinner from Maria's  = $4.17 family pizza

what about you?
what do you love?

Five Friday Favs . . . on a Saturday

sitting on the couch 
with my little loves
a gifted heart box of chocolates
it was a buffet of sorts
take a bite and sample each one
then return to the box
we all got to taste them all
then we returned to the bitten chocolates
the next day

* * * * * 

a newly acquired love of wawa coffee
english toffee to be exact
it's way cheap
its surely convenient when getting gas
it's on the way to preschool

 * * * * * 

yogi teas
(maybe i shouldn't have shared bitten chocolates;)
i don't feel sick though
just NO voice & scratchy throat
boys are surely taking advantage of the no voice

* * * * * 

report cards
an honor roll kiddo
and a
good citizenship kiddo
2 trying their best kiddos

* * * * * 

10 of the most darlin preschoolers on the planet
their faces were precious 
as they passed out their valentines on thursday

~  my friend is in africa.

~  i found this sweet pic of the boys . . . & girl.  i'm pretty sure i took it w/ intentions for Christmas cards.  but then i decided against Christmas cards this year.  i love this pic though!

~  our jacob slept for 15 hours straight!  i think he is finally feeling better.  it's been a week.  i'll probably sleep better tonight too.

~  i've recently been introduced to  UNsweet tea w LOTSA lemon . . . i mean lots.  who knew it could taste almost as good as *split* tea?!  let's just say i bought a big ole bag of lemons from the grocery yesterday.

~ had the best time today giving cricut tutorials.  the evening one even brought dinner to us.

~ i am so excited to read this ~ i keep hearing more & more wonderful things about this book!  my copy came today.
