How I Spent My Valentines Day

B and I didn't have any special plans yesterday.  He had to work last night so we went to a movie Wednesday night, and are going on a date Saturday.  My friend Regan invited me to our church's Summit lunch.  I had never been before and it was really fun.  Dr. Floyd and his wife Jeana spoke about marriage and family.  I enjoyed listening to them.  I always like to hear people who have been married a long time talk about how they have made it work.  Plus, I got a free lunch!  B would be so proud of me.  Interesting fact about Regan (I am hoping she doesn't mind that I share) she wears a girls size 2.5 shoe!  Crazy right?  She is a little bitty lady.  I say this in part to explain why my head looks so big in the below pic. :)  
Since I was already in the Pinnacle area I decided to swing by the mall and see if I could put this Sephora card to good use.  This was a special treat for me because I had to cut myself off from Sephora years ago.  I was spending way too much money there each month.  It was ridiculous and I knew it.  Now I only go when I have a gift card to spend.  That's my policy.  I have had this card since my birthday last year.  See how disciplined I have become?  Please notice how big the inside of the new Mothership looks.  You would think I shuttle a baseball team instead of just the taters.
Happy Heart Day to me!
My mom dropped some goodies off at my office for the taters, and I added a couple things from us to her bags.  She always gets them really special Valentine treats.  They all got books, candy, and cake pops from Nanny.  M got pirate army men, Ellie got nail polish, and R got a bouncy ball (not the girly one in the pic) from us.
My plan was for E to let me paint her nails with her new polish, but instead she insisted on painting them herself.  Then she painted M's.  It ended up being a big mess, and I followed them around for the next hour screaming for them not to touch anything. 
I read the taters their new books, and tucked them into bed.  Then I did a couple loads of laundry because nothing says Happy Valentines Day like having clean undies to wear!   
Talk to ya soon,

  1. know how much you liked the gift of the cleaning lady? You should put that in your budget and have her do a few loads of laundry also while there..she would even strip the bedding for you and place new ones...sounding better each minute????
