Happy Heart Day!

Good morning friends.  I have a lot to share today, so I'm going to get right to it!  First off, I have the girls Valentine gifts...
This one is Abie's and I love the pale aqua with the red!  Fantabulous!

This one is Landry's and I'm loving the vintage trim at the top of the package and the sugary looking sequin thingies on the tag!  They look good enough to eat!

Now for Mike, we never exchange Valentines.  We go to the store, pick out a card for each other, read it and put it back.  We don't go out to dinner, we always have a special candlelit meal at home, even before we had kids.  What's weird about this is that our first date was on Valentines Day.  I guess we've just always been of the opinion that we should show each other how much we love and care about one another every day, not JUST on V-day :)  However, that being said, this year is the 15 year anniversary of our first date and I thought I would do a very small something for Mike.
The box just has some candy in it, nothing too big so he won't feel guilty when he doesn't get me anything :) and the vintage Valentine says "I'm glad Valentines Day comes but once a year"  The little boys expression cracked me up and kind of reminded me of Mike.  Haha! 

Okay, next up I have pictures to share from meeting Billy the Exterminator yesterday.  The line was crazy.  We waited for 3 hours and 45 minutes!  But Abie was thrilled so it was worth it.

Here's Abie and Billy...
And here's Billy signing Abie's hat.  I asked her what he said to her and she said, "I can't remember it all happened so fast!" 

Last up today I have a blog award I received from Scrappnbee last week!!!!!  She is one of the funniest bloggers out there.  She is currently in the process of reorganizing her scraproom and each week takes you on a journey, along with her multiple personalities, about her trials and tribulations.  Go check her out, if you haven't yet!
With this award, you're supposed to share it with 3-5 other blogs that have under 100 followers.  So here are mine...

My first is Create Share Inspire.  She has the most beautiful cards and this is where I learned you can PAINT on doilies!!!!  Awesome!

My next one is  Schell.  She has adorable cards and great videos!  In fact, I have a card up later this week that was inspired by one of her videos.

My third pick is Sharla.  She has great layouts, is funny and she can rock a home crafty project like no ones  business!  There are several projects on my to do list thanks to her!

If you get a chance, go check these ladies out!!! 

All right, I'm out of here for today.  Hope you have a great Valentines Day and I'll see you all tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by!
