Happy Valentine's Day

Just checked out my blog and WHEW! It's been 2 months since I've posted anything. Now please don't judge, but I've got FOUR, yes four, (AND then there are the TWO before those) drafts saved! I really need to finish those up, but they're a little, make that A LOT out dated!!! Anywho, on to my post...

Valentine's Day
The last "organized" holiday party of the year. Kind of makes me tear up a little knowing the year is quickly approaching!!! The end of third quarter is just around the bend, then it's the race to the last day of school. Did I really just say it? "THE LAST DAY OF SCHOOL" in no time I'm goin to be sending my lil' love muffins into the big first grade world!!! EEEK! There is sooo much left to accomplish!

Well, as much as I'd like to be spending the day w/ my LOVE muffins, I'll be at home enjoying my SECOND snow day (of the year AND in a row)!!!  There will be plenty of time to party tomorrow.  I'm actually pretty excited to see what the families came up with for their February Family Projects...Valentine Containers!  But for today, I'll be enjoying the snow w/two super, excited boys! Can't wait to suit up and hit the white stuff!  Just wish dad's job had snow days!!!  In the words of the six year old, "Stinks to be dad!" :(

Yesterday, I spent my first snow day super busy and for some reason, uber motiviated (soooo unlike me) as I prepared for this day of love, cards, hearts, roses, and chocolate...

1. I finished up my Valentine's for my love muffins.

Thank you Pinterest!

2. I created my own Valentine Box
(I've used the same "container" for 12 years...NO that's not a type-o!)

Again inspired by Pinterest!

3. I made some delicious chocolate treats for my boys!

First, breakfast (Pinterest...YES I'm addicted) Cinnamon Rolls cooked on the waffle iron!

Second, chocolate covered strawberries and craisins (if you haven't tried the craisins, YOU MUST).

4. AND finally and hour of Zumba!  I had two ladies were able to get out in the white stuff and sweat.  My thanks to Monica and Hanna!  They'll probably NEVER read this, but thanks ladies...I needed that!  If you've NEVER tried Zumba Fintness...YOU MUST!  It is so much fun and a GREAT workout!  Seriously...you WON'T even realize you've worked out.  Well, the sweat and loss of breath might be a clue, but it truly is more of a PARTY than a work out!  Trust me...you MUST at least give it a try!
 Whew!  SUPER long post, but I had a LOT to say...remember it's been a while.  I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day and that you get to spend it with those you LOVE most! 
I know I'm going to!


  1. Hope you had a Happy Snow Day!! Love those valentine's for your kindergartners!
