I hope you guys had a LOVELY Valentine’s Day! I spent mine with my boys, and it was so, so, so nice! The day started bright and early with hugs, kisses, and presents! 🙂 Quinn got a really cool Ninja Turtle from Mumma, Dada, and Murphy! And Mal got a sweet sweatshirt! After that, Mal left for school, and Quinn and I got ourselves ready for the day. His “Valentine’s Day outfit” was from Cat…

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! I hope your day is warm and fuzzy and full of love! 🙂 The other day, a friend shared this Valentine’s Day survey on Facebook, so Mal and I decided to play along. Without prompting, you’re suppose to ask your significant other these questions and write down exactly what they say. We definitely had some good laughs about each other’s answers! Feel free to play along with your significant other! What is…

Good morning, friends! I am feeling TIRED this morning. We had quite the interesting night. Well, maybe “interesting” isn’t the right word to use, but I didn’t sleep all that much. So, at 2:30 AM this morning, Mal wakes me up because he hears something, but can’t tell what it is and where the sound is coming from. I’m half asleep and wearing ear plugs, so it takes me a little while to figure out…

Good morning! I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine’s Day! Mal and I celebrated with an early dinner at Scarlet Oak Tavern. We actually weren’t planning to do anything for the holiday, but then we forgot to use a gift certificate that we received for Christmas the last time we dined at Scarlet Oak, so we gave ourselves an “excuse” to visit again for Valentine’s Day. Hey, whatever works, right? 🙂 Mal and I met at the…

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! How was your Valentine’s Day weekend? Ours was fairly low-key since Q-Man is still recovering from his surgery, but that meant we had lots of quality time together as a family. This, of course, was perfect timing with the sentiment of love and loving for the Valentine’s Day holiday. That said, here’s what love meant to me this weekend! Love is… … a nice glass of wine at happy hour with my favorite boys….

Thank you to Ricola® Herb & Throat drops for sponsoring this post!  Quinn and I had some fun at Target last week shopping for “stay well” Valentine’s Day care packages for Grandma, Papi, and his aunts and uncles. With winter and cold season in full swing, we thought they’d be a fun way to send our loved ones the gift of wellness. When we arrived at Target, Quinn got right to work, selecting festive Valentine’s Day decorations to include in…

Monkey Bread is so wrong, but so, so, so right”¦ My Valentine’s Day gift to Mal was a big ol’ homemade Monkey Bread, and he absolutely loved it. I’m also glad he decided to share it with me! It was incredible. Mal’s present to me was a gift certificate for a pre-natal massage at a local spa, which was a really nice surprise, especially since I *thought* we had agreed to $5 Valentine’s Day gifts this…

Good morning! Happy Friday! How was your Valentine’s Day? Mal and I had a really nice Valentine’s Day. We agreed to keep it low-key because we’re off to Hawaii on Sunday, so we spent the holiday at home with some fun gifts and Thai take-out for dinner. When Mal got home from school yesterday, he was super excited to give me my Valentine’s Day present, which was a goodie bag full of travel items for…

With wine, of course! Mal and I had a low-key, but really nice Valentine’s Day night. It involved wine, a simple dinner, and cuddling on the couch with a Netflix movie. Perfect. We watched Bad Teacher, which was absolutely terrible. We even considered shutting it off a few times””it was that bad. The storyline was cheesy, the characters were weird (but not it a good way), and I didn’t even realize Jason Segal had a…

Look what arrived in the mail for Murphy yesterday! A Valentine’s Day card from his pug girlfriend, Olive! Olive lives in Wisconsin, so she and Murphy have a long distance relationship and often send each other things. Murphy and Olive have never met, but I know they will someday. Until then, they’ll continue to send each other fun things in the mail, like cards with pug puppies on them because”¦ Yep, they are. Wicked cute….

Catching up on weekend posts? Road Trip to Stratton Dinner for 17 This Post By Mal <— my husband’s first CNC post! Dinner and a Dance Party Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Check out the card that I almost bought Mal for Valentine’s Day! (I know, I have the sense of humor of a 15-year-old boy.) I ended up saving my $3 and making my husband a homemade card instead. Mal and I don’t usually do much for Valentine’s…

I love love, so here’s a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, which is right around the corner! 😀 In 2009 and 2010, I hosted a Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt on Carrots ”˜N’ Cake. Both were a big hit, so I’ve decided to do it again this year! One lucky reader will win a Valentine’s Day Care Package full of goodies, handpicked by me!

I can’t believe that it’s already Friday! I’m not complaining– but, man, did this week fly by! Why can’t all work weeks be like this?! I woke up bright and early with my hubby this morning. It’s nice to have some quiet time to ourselves while the little Gremlin sleeps. Once he’s awake, it’s all about him! 😉 Breakfast For breakfast this morning, I made us a big batch of oats with ground flaxseed meal,…
