A ladybug cupcake for you! :D
Happy Valentines Day everyone! I hope that you have a great day, and remember, the day is not only about love you give to others, but also love that you give to yourself. Show yourself that you care for you. Be romantic with yourself. Buy yourself flowers, treat yourself to a massage or a nice bath, watch your favorite movie while you munch on your favorite dessert, sleep in, or whatever else you may come up with :) The ideas are endless!

Because of work and school my hubby and I celebrated our valentines day this past weekend. It was lovely and just what both of us needed. A mini vacation :) I'm now refreshed and ready for classes this week :)

Oh! and don't forget, there's still time to print some valentines to hand out :) You can find them right here.

I'm off to go do some singing now. I have two tests today which I am very nervous about, but I think all will be ok once I am actually taking them :) Have a great day! and Happy Valentines Day! :D

I have been working on these for a while now, and wanted to say thank you to all of you who visit this blog :) There would be no blog if it wasn't for you. So as a thank you I have created some free valentines for you to use and enjoy :)
Here is a sample of them, there are two sets per sheet. You may print as many as you like :D

I miss those days where you would make little valentines for your classmates, friends, loved ones, etc. It was a lovely way of showing them how much you care about them :) These look and feel great printed on cardstock paper. I had a great time making all of these for you guys! And I wanted to extend a HUGE thank you to my wonderful husband for staying up late last night with me; helping me to make these easily available for you all :D Thank you hunny! You are the greatest!! :D Thank you so much to all of you for your visits and support! I hope you enjoy these! :D
 
 
Me and the hubby are celebrating the holidays many times over this year :) It's our first christmas being married, and so we're celebrating with a lovely christmas dinner. We're also going to be getting a new addition to our family, so I'll post pictures of him soon :D In the meantime I'm going to go and finish some cleaning, and then work on a christmas painting that has been floating around in my mind :) But I shall leave you with a picture of our cute little christmas tree. Hee hee, It's only 3 feet high :D

Christmas is coming up fast! I can't believe it. We took my niece and nephew to see some christmas lights the other night. They were so colorful and beautiful! Just the thing to get you into the christmas spirit :) I don't know what it is about christmas lights, but they have such a magical feel to them. Especially when you are in a tunnel of them! :D

Holiday Weekend 07/06/2010
 
I have started some new art projects. Another clay figurine, and now a collage/painting. I wanted to combine my photography with my art, and I think I found a really neat way to do that :) When I am finished with it, I'll post it up here. I have a couple of other projects to finish first :P (My husband told me only 3 projects at a time! Before I start on another one hee hee hee) If this post sounds choppy, and like a 5 year old wrote it; please forgive me! I am super sleepy this morning, and just can't seem to wake up :P lolol.

Last Thursday my husband came home from work, and told me he wanted to take me out on a date :D He had even bought me some very colorful daisies that make the whole room look cheerful :) I got changed, and then we went out to eat dinner at a nice restaurant, and then decided that we wanted to see "The Last Airbender". We were standing in line for about 10 minutes before they yelled "Last Airbender is sold out!" Phooey :P So we left, went to a bookstore around the corner where it was quite exciting, just because that side of town that it is on is CRAZY! Lololol. You are always bound to run into the most crazy of people :P

Friday was reserved for boring adult stuff :P Like getting groceries and going to the social security office. But we still had a good time, and got A LOT done! :) We decided to try for seeing "The Last Airbender" again. We made sure that we would get tickets by purchasing them online this time. Unfortunately, the movie was not very good :( My husband and I are huge fans of the show. We actually own all of the episodes, and marathon them from time to time :P lolololol.  The movie was just horrible though, and so we left quite disappointed :P

Saturday we relaxed at home. Zach played his video game (which will seriously make you want to throw up :( It's gross :P lololol.) while I painted and worked on some projects :)

Sunday we decided to go to South of the Border...which was another bummer (besides the reptile zoo) but, we did meet the CUTEST little kid, who was just so excited to be there! So cute! After SotB we were driving back home, when we saw a sign for a Botanical Garden :) We stopped off at the gardens for a little bit and walked around. It was very pretty! We even got to see a wild deer and hawk! I was not quick enough with my camera to catch them, but sometimes there are moments that are not meant to be captured on film, and I think this was one of them. After the gardens we drove further to a place that we had seen advertised alongside the road. Unfortunately it was another bummer :( but the car ride there was fun :) We decided to visit one last place that had been on our list which was only a few miles away. A historical town that is FILLED with antique shops. Once again, a bummer :( The town had closed early that day in order to celebrate the holiday :P Oh well. lololol.

It was a fun weekend traveling with my husband :) I took a TON of pictures, some of which will end up here, and others who will probably fade away into the abyss of my computer :P hee hee hee

Wow! That must have been the longest post ever! Apparently I am quite chatty when I am sleepy :P hee hee hee. That's been what I have been up to though :) I hope that you all had a great holiday weekend :)
