Countdown to Valentine's Day

For those of you who know me well, you know that my FAVORITE holiday is Valentine's Day.
I love everything red and hearts. I love candy (especially See's). I love making heart shaped sugar cookies. I love flowers (especially tulips). I love being in love.
I LOVE Valentine's Day.

So, in celebration of Valentine's Day, I am going to attempt to do the 14 days of Valentine's,
here on my blog. (Yes, I know I'm already behind...but that just means you get two entries today.)

On the first day of Valentines, my true love said to me
Go out and have a muffin with your daughter
and don't worry about being a mommy!

Find yourself some cute jeans
And meet us for lunch
Go to Target
and by the way, I love you a bunch!

Sabrina's school hosts a Mom's Muffin Morning every year. This is a chance to come and have a muffin with your kid and then visit the class for a while. I really enjoyed seeing Sabrina in action. Her teacher, Mrs. Lockerman, had us do a science project with our kids. We tasted different apples and made graphs and all that fun stuff! It was a fun morning!

Enjoying her apple taste-testing.

After Mom's Muffin Morning I went on the search for the perfect jeans for me. And believe it or not, I found them! I won't delight you with pictures...but let's just say that my self-esteem went up about 100% after putting them on. Yes, larger CAN look good in jeans too!!! Then I enjoyed lunch with Gian, Tabitha and Charlee. And then off to Target.

It was a LOVELY day and there are so many things I loved about this day.

I would LOVE to hear about what you love....join in with me on the 14 days of Valentine countdown!

On the first day of Valentine's
My daughter needed me. . .
After Moms' Muffins she had to Pee
So she stopped by our home before
She went out to shop for more
Pants that went from ankle to waist
Then off she went at a very fast pace.

Love ya Momma-Sue
