Valentine’s Day at our house today…

We woke up nice and simple today.
And had heart sprinkles on our cereal.
Delicious, right?
It’s a sweet little day to talk about love.  And kindness.  And that sort of thing.
And a day to treat the baby in my belly to some deliciousness.  She needed some goodness too!

This bowl was sitting on the table yesterday and this morning.  It may or may not be all gone. Babies in utero need things like this to thrive in the last 2 weeks of development.  I read that somewhere……you know, like online or somewhere. {{wink,wink}}
And what will I give my husband for Valentine’s day? 

Well, I received a water color painting from Keri at this shop.
(same shop as these paintings for my kids room here)

I’m kind of in love with it.  It’s my husband as the P.A. (which he’s in school to become)…….and my little kiddos as the patients.  And maybe my little girl’s favorite pink bear is up on the office wall, as the ‘anatomy drawing’.  And my little guy loves trains, and that’s up on the other wall.
All of the many details included in the painting are simply charming.
Since my husband doesn’t have an office, or somewhere official to hang the this, it’ll hang out next to him while he studies for school.  Thanks Keri, from BeDoodled.  We both love it.
. . . . .
One more thing I have to mention. Do any of you remember that little giveaway I hosted before Christmas (found here) where I gave away a few things from my stash?  Well, the winner of the ruffled scarf is from Australia and she declared that if she won, she would take a photo of the scarf next to a kangaroo or emu or something.  Well, the scarf made it safely to Australia……and Maya kept her promise.  Here she is next to some wallabies (small type of kangaroos she explained to me)……flashing that sweet smile.

She even used her little guy as a model to display the scarf in front of some emu’s and more wallabies.
Way too cute.  And thanks for humoring me Maya.  I only wish I would have boxed myself up to meet those little wallabies in person.  Maybe we could arrange that! :)
. . . . .
Anyway, hope everyone enjoys their Valentine’s Day (if you celebrate).
We are bound to overeat a bit on pink and red candies and all things chocolate.  And use plenty of fluffy and sparkly materials to create a few Valentine’s day cards.
Hope you do too.
