weekend recap...midway through the next week.

you guys, my weekend was great! although friday was still a work day, it was valentines day, and i did a great job of taking no pictures! haha. so kenny brought some beautiful flowers home for me on thursday, and friday morning i got up and made him breakfast. blueberry pancakes, orange juice, coffee, and of course bacon! the rest of our day went pretty normal. work, dinner at home, and then grocery shopping. that is my kind of valentines day :) we both like grocery shopping and to me it was just about spending that quality time together! on saturday kenny spent some time shoveling snow off the roof. i have never lived somewhere that has gotten so much snow that the roof needs to be shoveled off! a lot of our neighbors/ people who live in the surrounding area have shoveled their roofs off and kenny was fortunate enough to have a co-worker who had an extended shovel that he could borrow. it was driving toby crazy that he couldn't be outside with kenny, so i let him out for just a little bit. while kenny was working on the deck. i think our deck has more than 3 ft of snow on it-you can see kenny standing on top of it in the picture below. when monday rolled around we got...more snow! just when the sun starts peeking out more often we get another snow storm. it was definitely a hot soup and sandwich night at our house! this week we are getting into some warmer temperatures finally, but with the melting will come a lot of ice. it's crazy that i have gotten so used to the below 20 temperatures, that 30 degrees feels super warm to me now!

 hope everyone is having a great week so far!



happy valentines day!

its pretty appropriate to write in pink today, right? my valentines day will be full of...work. well not totally, but since kenny peeks over here every once in a while i can't share my valentine ideas publicly yet! so there will be things planned around work tomorrow and of course ill be showing toby some extra loving tomorrow morning after kenny leaves and before i start to work. he is such a cuddle bug in the morning!

and happy weekending :) enjoy you time with loved ones, friends, or even just yourself! I promised myself at least one bubble bath this weekend! 

have a LOVEly day :)


to every mom:

a friend of mine posted this video on facebook today. yes, sometimes good things get passed along on facebook! i had to share it because its funny, and why not pass along a smile?


week of love

i love valentines day and have always really enjoyed the holiday! i am not huge into big gifts or felt the need to go out for a big dinner--although i wouldn't pass on either of those, i wouldn't be disappointed if they didn't happen. growing up i had always been shown and felt that i am loved on valentines day, from getting treats from my grandparents, to cards, treats and flowers from my own parents each year. i have learned from those people in my life that valentines day is a focus on reminding your loved ones how much you love them and ...treating them!

so what do you do for valentines day? do you go big every year? make a batch of brownies with pink, red, and white sprinkles on top? this year i'm planning on just making a nice dinner for kenny and i, and of course a delicious sweet treat to follow! but i can't share what treat i have decided on just yet...you'll have to wait til later this week!



Loving; a nice relaxing night with a friend.
