Happy Birthday to My Love!! He makes me laugh every day, and I'm so happy to be on this journey of life with him. A long time ago I said we go together "like beans and carrots". He said, don't you mean peas and carrots? Sure I did, but the beans have stuck. :)
Jacob and I love you Kris, and we hope you have a great birthday!
I L.O.V.E Hobby Lobby! For all of my seasonal decorations, I have hit the local HL after the holiday to capture the discounts. I've never been a big decorator, but once we had Jacob, I wanted to decorate more for each holiday. I still don't go all out, but I do try (somewhat). I envision Jacob when he's a teenager telling his friends, "my mom always decorates for the holidays". Hopefully he's not rolling his eyes as he says it. HA! :)
I have actually been to HL twice this week. On Monday, the Valentine merchandise was 50% off. I always wait till at least 75% off before I make my move. Well today I went back because I knew their supply wouldn't last. I walked in, and 80% was marked! Yippee!!
I bought these 3. The 2 wooden ones at the top were originally $4.99 each, and the ceramic plate was $13.99. Score for me!! $4.79!!
Jacob fell asleep while watching TV in our bed. He was watching Thomas the Train and eating wafers - hence the train across his body and empty bowl. His teacher at daycare has been telling us that he will not take naps after lunch, which is so new for him. So instead he's falling asleep before 8pm.
After I took pictures, Kris picked him up and carried him to bed. :) Good night little man.
I attended a Stella & Dot jewelry party on Saturday with Beth. John was kind enough to watch all 3 kiddos while we got away. We had a good time, and saw a lot of pretty "date" jewelry as I refer to it. I must say, the prices were not Forever 21 prices, but I'm sure the quality is much better.
And one more picture of Jacob with his eyes closed. We had red water tonight, and NONE of them wanted to get out - as you can imagine. You think this time next year there will be room for one more kiddo in there? :)
I received flowers today at work from Kris. It was such a surprise, let me tell ya! This is not a normal gesture for him to do. I made the mistake a few years ago saying "flowers just die", and he's never let me forget about it. But I think I convinced him that I enjoy the thought he puts into it. Thank you Lovebug!! I love you! This made my day!
