InstaFriday, Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!

I have loved seeing everyone's updates on the fun things they were doing for Valentine's day this year. It is such a fun little holiday and a great way to show people we love them. What could be better?

We started celebrating by getting heart shaped donuts at the really crazy brand new dunkin' donuts on Saturday. Michael loved them. 

I was really proud of myself for ordering these cars cut-a-part valentines from this year. I designed my own cut-a-parts last year and ordered from persnickety prints but didn't have time (or a patient 3 year old) to do a cutesy photo this year so I found these. I like the photo ones so I can send them to family too.

I found some cute little Cars themed boxes of chocolate and tied the valentine on with a bow. Voila! I thought they were cute. Next year I am definitely going with the non-candy valentine. Boxes of crayons, maybe? I debated my decision the day before Valentine's day but then I had already bought the candy so I stuck with it. It is hard to know what is the right thing to do!

Michael and I had fun making sprinkle cookies the night before Valentine's day. They looked really cute all rolled in sprinkles but I think it did something to the taste because they tasted pretty weird. Oh well- at least it prevented us from eating more than one! Sometimes I think things like that are more fun to do than the actual end product. 

In other news....I've been trying to get to the gym most days (seeing Hugh Jackman on the tv is a bonus). It is hard and I'm not really seeing results but I am sticking with it. I do think it makes me mentally feel better and gives me a little time to myself. I can't wait until summer so I can start Zumba again! :o)

I've been getting catalogs almost daily for spring planting and it is so overwhelming to me right now. I am excited to start getting out in the yard and see what is going on but I'm not anticipating making any  changes or adding new plants. I feel like I can't even think about any of that yet! 

Have a great day!


  1. I love those Valentines with Michael's photo - great idea. I'm glad you can have some time to yourself (and Hugh) ... you deserve it. I bet it's fun to look through all of the colorful gardening magazines ... just seeing it on your post made me hopeful for spring! Have a good week, Rose.

  2. Ah, summer... I can't wait to have my Zumba buddy back!
