the final rose

its valentines day, im watching the bachelor, researching anguilla {um vacation anyone?}, sippin on some vino with the hubs.

we tried {unsuccessfully} to get emory to take a bottle again tonight, but when i dejectedly escaped from her room i found this
{yes thats a rose in a decanter of wine and my....11th? homemade card :)}
and a little 3 year old soooooo excited to show me his card.
he screamed "happy thanksgiving!" when daddy got home today.

stressful bottle feeding attempts = no homemade fried chicken, rice and gravy, black eyed peas as planned for my favorite valentine.

but there's nothing wrong with v-day old el paso right?


while im kind of "eh?" about valentines day, i do believe no day should pass without telling the ones you love that you do indeed love them...and i love any excuse to make regular ole mondays special mondays.

so happy v-day to YOU and now i think i will help myself to another SLICE of cookie cake
{this makes three...im not going to lie...it might be gone tonight...my college roommates will now nod their heads and say "you know thats right"}
