It's love day.
Are you ready?
Are you doing anything special?

To be honest with you, I'm not overly Valentiney. I'm not a hopeless romantic.
Nicholas Sparks kinda drives me nuts.
Does that make me a weird girl or what?!
So I don't freak out over V-day, but I do like holidays and making them special.

So let's love it up, huh?

Our plans today include a Valentine skating party, sugar, exchanging Valentines, Lady and the Tramp, spaghetti and meatballs, and more sugar.
The thought of all that sugar kinda makes me a little nauseous.

We've been having so much fun with Mama, I'm can't even think about saying goodbye tomorrow.
So I'm not going to.
I will do what I do; I will cross my arms, stick up my chin, refuse to cry, crack a joke, and move on. Then I will go home and cry my eyes out to my one and only, the only one I don't mind to see me cry. So that's that.
But that's tomorrow...let's not think about it yet, k??

Today is for love...and that's just lovely.
Let's not look too far ahead.
Let's let today be about today...
And love every minute.

Love you all so.

on the whole un-valentiney thing

sprinkled through the day
and funny cards

and tonight
we will eat spaghetti by candlelight

Love YOU sweet friend! Enjoy this wonderfully sappy day! I love the way you make a holiday you're not crazy about, still special for your family. You're neat like that.
Your decorations are beautiful!

"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."

Enjoy your fun day with your Mom and sweet family!

Happy Valentines Day!

We aren't huge Valentines Day people either, but my husband surprised me with a box of brownies. I was happy.

I was just in the Atlanta airport yesterday thinking of you guys.

Happy Valentine's Day! Its not weird at all. I only love this day because I love to decorate the house and be girly. My girls love that too :)
Have a great day and enjoy this special time with your Mamma!

Mandy said...

with the excpetion of the notebook movie, nicholas sparks is overboard. i JUST posted on facebook that i'm probably the only girl who would be pissed to GET a valentine from her hubby! ha! we're soul sistas. the one thing i do too? put candy in jars!

sorry your mama's leaving...i'll send you mine :D

Biz said...

We don't really do Valentine's day either.
I always say that if we need a day to remind us we love each other (which we don't, because we are good at always expressing it) then let's save that day for our anniversary!
I would totally love to be at your house eating spaghetti and meatballs watching Lady and the Tramp though! How heavenly does that sound...
Oh and if it makes you feel any better I ball my eyes out whenever my Dad leaves!
Bud is always prepared though...

Be Blessed!
