Valentines Day!!!

hi. a tad late on the valentines post, but what's a girl to do...
has everyone else been plagued with the flu?
it has taken a hold of our home for the past month and holy moly...

anyways...onto my cute valentine kiddos.

and the {funny face} pic

so valentines day went something like this...
wednesday i woke up with the horrible flu! i hadn't been that sick in...i can't even remember.
masyn was upset. she was worried that i would be sick for valentines day.
needless to say, the valentine gifts that she wanted didn't get made and mikaela took her out after school and got some last minute valentines stuff.
between mom, mikaela, and gavin {LOVE} them, all the valentines got made.
the next morning i woke up feeling so much better.
masyn had a wardrobe problem and forgot the last minute, thrown together gifts for her three friends and she asked me before exiting the car if she could have a redo. {poor thing}
took nolan to school and spent the morning making valentines gifts for masyn's friends, buying dinner and dessert.

 evyn and i showed up at masyn's school with balloons for each of the girls and the little valentines gift.  who knew balloons would make {EVERYTHING} better!
note to self...they DO!

the day went well and we celebrated with heart shaped meatoaf, pink mashed potatoes
and lots and lots of candy and {LOVE}

i hope you all had a {WONDERFUL} valentine's day!

this one is very versatile
you can find it here

and as much as i LOVE a good sugar cookie
i thought this was great!

don't tell him.
he has NO IDEA he is this large

seriously. if you are looking for a family dog.
don't be intimidated by their size
he is, by far, the sweetest, most gentle dog i've ever had.
{and i've had a lot}
you won't be sorry!

i couldn't help but add this picture
of a girl and her friend.

Imagine my {EXCITMENT}

when i got a call from the shop
saying cheri left me something!!!

i went as soon as i could not knowing what to expect.
i was thinking maybe some of the bread she posted and made for class that day.


i know. RIGHT!

you can be jealous. i would be ;)
the good news is, that i will be teaching this beauty in may
and you can make one for yourself.

in the meantime,
i will FOREVER be enjoying this!

CHERI. YOU are the BEST!!!
{so glad my first thought was wrong ;)}

have a happy, happy day!

Mini Madness {Take One}

saturday was our first ever {MINI} madness
it's the exact same class as the previous {midnight} madness but only goes to ten.
which for many, is an added bonus!

as you can see, the {goods} are the same.

the gals are different {unique!, not different} :)

and the sharing is fabulous!

loved the class. loved the gals.
only one negative...
i get there early to set up before the gang shows up and while i was out shopping
some bonehead STOLE one of the gifts i had set out for the gals.
RUDE!!! i really can't believe people these days!
