Our Valentine's Day

Here while back I started thinking about Valentine's Day and wondering what to get hubby. When I asked him what he wanted, his response was a quart of Thank You Cherry Much Ice Cream and the ability to eat the whole thing and not feel guilty. I laughed so hard, but he was serious.

Then I got to thinking about it and decided that he needed a receiver hitch in his truck. I have one in mine, but my dad's got stolen when his truck was in the shop getting worked on, so dad had to borrow mine. It made me realize that we needed another one at least so I decided to get him one like the picture above. This way he had 3 different sizes, versus mine 1 size. My one will haul our flat bed trailer but if it is bigger or smaller than what was on my truck (and don't ask me what size I have) we'd have been screwed, so I decided to get him the 3.

I was afraid I wouldn't pick the right thing out though, so I loaded him up in the truck, drove a round about way to get there trying to throw him off, and took him to Harbor Freight which is where I decided to buy the receiver hitch from. When we pulled into the parking lot, he laughed so hard at me it frustrated me. I wasn't real sure why he was laughing, but he said he knew exactly what we were after when I pulled into the parking lot, he just had to wait and see if he was correct.

I got a rose bush, bear, and chocolates. Truthfully I'm not sure, I haven't opened the heart box just yet. I just assume it's chocolates. And a sweet message.

Abug got a double Blu-ray set from us that was the animated and live action version of Cinderella. That's what she's been wanting and talking about for weeks. Grandma and Papa got her an Elsa Pillow. Memaw got her a cute little love bug.

I kind of figured the weekend before Valentine's Day we'd go out since the 12th is our proposaversary date but we didn't. We obviously couldn't on Valentine's Day because of the wedding, so he finally took us out Friday night to Outback Steakhouse. It was good, but my steak, being a higher cut, was just meh. He was happy with his choice though.

After that we went to our friend's house to house/dog sit as they are on a work vacation. Technically it's for work, but it's totally vacation! And that was our low key Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Day Wedding


Valentine's Day we spent at a wedding celebrating the union of two of our friends, Justin and Kristi. They asked Abug if she would be their flower girl. Of course she said yes, but I'm not sure she knew what she was saying yes too 😀.

Deb, Tracy, and I worked on their cake. I heard rumor they initially weren't going to have an official wedding cake. I don't know if that was true or not... but after our cake day, Kristi asked if we could make her a Red Velvet Cake like Deb made that day. We obliged. Kristi also asked if I could make sugar cookies. Initially she wanted wedding bells but I didn't have a wedding bell cookie cutter and when she asked, I kind of lost track of time and thought I didn't have enough time to purchase a cookie cutter so I convinced her to do hearts since it was Valentine's Day. Then I felt bad when I realized I could have gotten the cookie cutter in on time.

We got to the wedding day... I was following Deb & Grady and witnessed a guy put a G8 in the ditch quickly. Just right through a four way stop, pavement was a little wet and it looked like he was hot rodding it and did a 180 in the road and off in the ditch he went. It was a pretty, red Pontiac G8 too....

When we got there, there was horrible cell reception. Hubby was coming from work and I was doing what we did in the olden days hoping we could hold the phone just right to get text messages out... let alone getting a phone call in or out.... Wow! Do you remember the days before cell phones and text messages?

Anyway Abug knows how to have her picture taken and we could not get her to get her picture taken to save our lives. But then when no one was paying attention to her anymore, she went off and pouted. Drama queen much?

The wedding itself was gorgeous. The venue was gorgeous. Congratulations to the lucky couple!

2nd Birthday Partaeee

So, the flu, as influenza, I think hit our house. We were never tested but within 2 weeks we all felt like death warmed over... is that the right phrase? Or do I have it wrong, like most times? Luckily for all our family, my niece's birthday party wasn't on her birthday and we were all kind of on the mend. It was rough going there for a while.... yikes! Hubby made sure to get Ambyr with icing before she could attack him. I think we actually made it through one family gathering... Christmas maybe... without the food war... It was definitely overdue!

We made sure to take our yearly family photo. Luckily Tbug was with us, or else we'd have had to put it off. (2015, 2016)

This picture, even though it is blurry, is way cute with the two littles looking at each other. By the way, when people are trying to take your picture, if you're in the picture, you stay ready at the camera so that when the person behind the camera gets the little's to smile, you are ready. Otherwise, they'll be ready and you won't be, and the littles are harder to get to smile/look at a camera....

My cupcake wrapper was turned into a flower... don't you think? And apparently there was a story behind a bunch of chocolate cupcakes but I never heard it..... hmmmmm.....
