Happy Valentine's Day 2011

This year I decided to make the girls I work with Valentines cd's and I sewed little fabric holders for them.  I wrapped them in brown paper with white paper heart doilies.
And for Micah, I made him wax hearts to hang in his window from crayon shavings and hung them with ribbon.  He will always be my special little valentine. :)  It's amazing how much Kevin and I absolutely love him....he is the most precious little guy to us. God gives the best gifts by far!

Since our anniversary is so close to Valentine's Day, we just like to cook at home for our special dinner.  I honestly usually like it better then I would a restaurant anyway...I like knowing exactly what is in my food...and it is usually healthier.  This year we had salmon,asparagus, and rice and chocolate fondue for dessert.  For the fondue we had strawberries, bananas and semi-homemade marshmallows (they were from a barefoot box.)  The marshmallows were actually very good with the fondue compared to store bought. 

cd's for the girls at work!


wax paper hearts for my Micah <3


love these votives from Roost


I love fondue!

Our 6th Wedding Anniversary

Every year we try to visit a new restaurant for our anniversary.  This year we went to Naples Rib Company.  It was good...I got a steak and ribs plate.  We celebrated on Super Bowl Sunday so we were basically the only customers in the restaurant.  They were so happy to have us. :)  Kev got me the k+j necklace that I wanted and some knit and crochet stuff. I love everything so much! :)  I got him P90X because he wanted it, plus I got him 2 cook books, a gift card to williams-sonoma and I painted him a picture of when we were snowed in, in Big Bear. (I give gifts to show people I love them).  Here are some pics of our 6th! :)

Hanging Vases from West Elm

Aren't these the cutest?  I do not have a green thumb at this point in my life so I love that these only need water and air to grow!  Our apt. doesn't have great light for plants.  I can't wait to purchase a couple of these for our living room! :)  They are little pics, but so cute...check them out! www.westelm.com
