I'm loving it

I am not going to lie or down play it....I LOVE VALENTINE'S DAY.

Is it because my birthday is the day before?? Hmmm....

Haha. But really, there is nothing I love more than pink, hearts and cheesy quotes. It is the perfect holiday!

Naturally, I have already done some research for projects this season, and here is the best of... ( so far, that is)...






What are your feelings on this LOVEly day? XOXO...

Wedding Dress? Check!

I have found my wedding dress!!! I am so excited. After not a whole lot of looking, we zeroed in on the perfect one.

However, I changed my tune when I found an Amsale today that I just ADORE!!

NYR {new year's resolution} 2: make playdough




I am a preschool teacher, and it is my 'duty' to make a new batch of this delightful, gooey substance in the next few days.

However, I have never made it.

We have had the same stuff in our room since September, so I guess the time has come to replenish our stash.

I will let you know how it goes.....XOXO!

NYR {new year's resolution} 1: keep in better touch

"It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them." Ralph Waldo Emerson

I really am so blessed to have so many wonderful friends in my life, and I am resolving this year to keep in better touch with them. The days get crazy and I get lazy, but I need to make a better effort in this department, even if it's just a phone call.

That's my first one, what about you?

Happy & healthy new year!
XOXO...
