Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Yes - I am 'that' way! I love this 'holiday'!!!

My daughter hosted a Valentine's Party yesterday...
it was small and low key, but they had fun!
(And so did I!
I got to make fun little crafty things
and Valentine's dessert...)
Anyway - as you can see, the girls all had a blast...
Busy crafting adorable Purse Scrapbooks...

and laughing and sharing ipod tunes,

And showing off the finished product...

Tomorrow is V-day...

My Honey and I rarely actually go all out

and spend a lot of money on this day...

he is excellent at picking the perfect card...

(except one year when he gave me one about bowling in Canada?!

Don't ask... I didn't get it then, and I don't get it now?!)

Anyway we usually go out for dinner - something quiet and low key.

Last year, though, God really put it on my heart to include our daughter.

I wanted to make sure that she knew that

as much as Valentine's Day is about Love & Romance

& Flowers and all of that...

it does not have to be an exclusive

'Couples Only' day...

God desires to romance us & shower us with His Love.

So - last year I rearranged our Living room

so we could put our dining room table

by our window overlooking the city

I ordered Take Out (New Thai!!!!)

& set the table with nice dishes,

candles, flowers, etc.!

The whole show!

Plus - I included Communion cups

so we could all take Communion together.

It was relaxing & nice

(& of course, I made a great dessert as well!)

Anyway, we have a roommate this year living with us.

She is a single gal so we decided

to do the same thing this year!

It's gonna be great!

After tomorrow... I will have to get to work on this new job!

I am awaiting some Journaling

& waiting for the actual Scrapbook album to arrive!

Oh - a quick survery... since you all

are so - well - you have issues apparently with


What is your favorite adhesive???

I am ready to try something new...

but most tape runners or glue sticks

that I have tried are not

'permanent' like they claim?!

So - I am looking for suggestions!

Hope you all have a GREAT Valentine's Day!

Know that you are loved...

By Him, and by me!

LOVE the purses! A good excuse to go snooping at the dollar store here, lol. Looks like the party was fabulous too.

Tommorow I'm spending th emorning at preschool for the party & then in the evening we have church & awanas, so our valentines will be pretty much an average day!?

Ok, glue~I love the mono adhesive (permanant), seems to work good for me. :O)

Oh, I won a final drawing prize at bunko tonight, some body shop shower gel & lotion (satsuma, yum!). :O)

Happy Valentines Day!!!
Here's a song for you from my list, LOL!

Eric Clapton
~Wonderful Tonight

Its late in the evening
Shes wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me
Do I look alright
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight

We go a party
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady
Thats walking around with me
And then she asks me
Do you feel alright
And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight

I feel wonderful
Because I see the love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just dont realize
How much I love you

Its time to go home now
And Ive got an aching head
So I give her the car keys
She helps me to bed
And then I tell her
As I turn out the light
I say my darling, you were wonderful tonight
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight
