Valentine's Day

I woke up to find flowers and a gift card to my favorite
clothing store on the kitchen counter this morning. :)



I dropped the boys off at school 
and snapped this photo.  Alex is already going
through the door. He shoots out of the jeep
like a rocket, even before the wheels stop
rolling.  ha.  Spencer makes sure
all the doors are closed for me.
I say, "Bye!  Love you!"
And Spencer answers, "Do, joo" (love you)
Sigh. I love these guys. :)

I wrapped a couple of new shirts and
a tie for The Mister and took off for the grocery.

When I came home, I made more chocolate things!
Two heart shaped trays of goodies.
One for The Mister and one for Taylor and Lauren.


Milk, white and dark chocolate covered strawberries.
Dark chocolate truffles and milk chocolate truffles.
And then chocolate caramel fudge.
Yep, I think we have enough chocolate!
The strawberries were my favorite.
yum!

I hope you've had a love-ly day!

    1. thank you! Hey, Martha..my computer won't let me onto your blog! It says it is infected with malware from debbie-debbiedoos.com, a common malware distributor. Hope it doesn't eat your computer...just wanted you to know.

      Anyway..your vases of roses look beautiful on my sidebar!

    2. I know! Maybe run your virus scanner? If it's only on your blog site, I don't know how that works...if your computer will still take care of it or not. Good luck!

      Hope you had a lovely day today!

    1. I know I could! Crazy! I saw these strawberries for $36 a dozen. It cost me $4 to make them.
      Nice profit, huh. Maybe I should sell a bunch.

      You might have to help me promote.
      When we're rich, you can gloat.
