Happy Valentine's!

Hope you've enjoyed your day! We have.

I made heart-shaped pancakes for breakfast this morning. For dinner I made heart-shaped mini meatloaves and I formed the mashed potatoes into a big heart as well. Cheesy? Maybe, but it was fun. I got the idea for heart shaped meat loaf and potatoes from a gal at Paper Petal Memories. (Thanks Karen!)

We don't have a lot of our "very own" traditions. So last year I decided to start one of our own and make Valentine's Day a fun day for our family. I decorate for the occasion and try to have as much fun with it as possible. I hope it will be memorable for our kids.

Tomorrow, Ruthi is having a little party here with a couple of her friends. She has been talking about her "bawenstines" party for about a week now. I hope it measures up to her expectations!

I'll share pictures from today - tomorrow. I still have quite a bit to do tonight, so I'm not going to try upload them from my camera right now. But I will get them on here before the weekend is over!

I saw this little question/answer thing on Stacey's blog and thought it was fun, so I'm going to do it here.


How long have you been together?
It will be 17 years in May. (16 married - 1 dating)

How long did you date?
1 year

How old is he?
35 - 6 months younger than me.

Who eats more?
I'm sure I could out eat him most days, but he tries not to let me do that!

Who said "I love you" first?
He did.

Who is taller?
He is.

Who is smarter?
I'd say him - but I suppose I might be smarter about some things.

Who does the laundry?
I do.

Who does the dishes?
I do. (He helps every now and then.)

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
He does.

Who pays the bills?
He does.

Who mows the lawn?
CJ does!

Who cooks dinner?
I do - most of the time. But he's a terrific cook and does cook sometimes!

Who is more stubborn?
Me. Definitely.

Who kissed who first?
I kissed him first. But he wanted it.

Who asked who out?
Neither really - he offered to drive me home from church one night, so I could go out to eat with everyone. (maybe that was our first "date"?) I called him to ask him to go on a group thing. He then invited me to a concert...never really a "will you go out with me" kind of thing. We just started hanging out and it progressed pretty quickly.

Who proposed?
He did.

Who is more sensitive?
I am.

Who has more friends?
At one time, I would have said me. Now I think we are pretty equal in that area.

Who has more siblings?
Me - I have one brother. He is an only.



  1. We have a few fun little traditions here for Valentines Day...I make chocolate dipped strawberries for breakfast and heart-shaped M&M pancakes for supper.

    That was a fun little meme!

    Glad you had such a fun day!

  2. i loved hearing your voice and am planning on leaving you a message soon. i am even going to try to add it to my site-on my to do list!

  3. Sounds like a fun day and I hope the party went well! Nice thing about kids Ruthi's age is that is generally doesn't take much to really thrill them so I am sure the party was great!

  4. Ohhh I bet your kids loved their Valentine's Day dinner. How creative.

    I may have to borrow that quiz. TOO cute. I laughed out loud with the kissing question. (But he wanted it) That made my night.
