Valentine's Special

Every year I like to give the kids a Valentine-ish shirt to wear for Valentines Day. Jordan doesn't usually like to wear red (just like his Papa) but happened upon this shirt in Target and liked it. So, J wore red this year!! I have mentioned that I love Target!! It is my favorite store!
Here's Emma ready to celebrate at preschool. She loved her new shirt and pants.
Anna and Kaela had a fun day in their new shirts. Kaela's said "Some Bunny Loves Me"(and yes, got them at Target). It was perfect for her because she loves loves loves animals. Here they are showing their V-day boxes. Anna's is a microwave and Kaela's is a can of pop.
Enjoying the treats.
Matt got his red hoodie. He loved it. Nope, it wasn't from Target, it was a Shopko special.
Friday night Troy surprised me and took me to eat at Log Haven up Millcreek Canyon. It was so fun. The food was kind of weird, but the atmosphere was great! Here's our self-portrait on his cell phone.
When we got home from dinner, Troy had this little surprise set up for me in the garage. It was the picture and table I've wanted for the family office. I was soooooo surprised.
Thanks Honey. You're the best!!

Finish What I Start

I think I am finally getting around to finishing a few things I've started. I'm going to finish Realestate School that I started almost two years ago. I'm going to finish a window valance that I cut the fabric out for a year ago. I am going to finish decorating the kitchen and family office thanks to the sweet additions Troy gave me for Valentines Day. I am going to finish a marathon all on my own, no friends beside me. I'm going to finish the book that's been on my nightstand for a few months now (The Undaunted.) It's a good book, I just haven't taken time to get in to it. I think that's a good enough list for a while. Hopefully I won't start anything else before I get these things done.
