Doug and I aren't huge celebrators of Valentines Day. We do love a good excuse to buy each other a gift (for both of us, a primary love language is gifts). But we are showing love to each other on a daily and regular basis so Valentines isn't that big a deal. To us, if you wait that long to show love then.... I did get Doug this cute plate (shown above). It reads "I Love You" in Norwegian. And he got me the movie "Becoming Jane". My favorite kind of movie. :) I also made some yummy festive cupcakes. :)
But I think our celebration ends there. Doug came home early from work today and went straight to bed (Doug is not the kind to do this lightly). Noooooooooooo!!!!! I hate and dread sickness in the house...it is exhausting, and gross and so not fun...AND I am the only one in the house who does not get a sick day. :( Please be praying that somehow Moses and I are spared this illness and that Doug gets better quickly. :)
Ok, more happy stuff. Just because I know you are wondering...I love Jesus, my Doug, my Moses, cable knit sweaters, ketchup on my scrambled eggs, sweet AND salty snacks, good coffee (instant coffee is not coffee), funky socks, little birds, red birds, blue birds, black birds, nests, acorns, dishes, bowls, big things, little things, tank tops, sunshine, flip-flops, black and white photos, the beach, walking on the beach, being a mom, being a wife, hugs, friends and good family moments. :)
And the WINNER of the goody bag is Amybell!! Her question was:
"For the mother in us, what is one thing you will tell Moses's wife someday?"
I had a hard time being unbiased in choosing a winner so I had a third party choose for me. :) I will have to think on this answer so stay tuned...
Please send me your address so I can get your goodies in the mail to you. :)
