Our Valentine’s Day

Cady

Cady was nervous at the party at first. There was a lot going on. We hung out in the kitchen and snacked. She wouldn’t let me put her down. Later when Daddy came to drop off my cell phone, she wanted to leave with him. Every once and a while during the party she would ask where he was thinking that he was still at the house.

After he left, I found a comfy chair in the corner where we could have a little space but still be in the room with everyone else. She quickly forgot about her reservations when I put her down in front of all the toys. I was even able to go to the other room to get my camera or walk to the kitchen to snack. Later she would want me to be close to her again while she played or even ask me to carry her. I think being with a lot of people can be overwhelming when you’re not used to it, especially when most of them are towering over you.

She did enjoy herself. I think it will be good for her to have opportunities to play with other kids. We have some friends coming over tomorrow, and I’m looking forward to that, too.

Wilton Course 1, Lesson 2, Cake 1

In our first class, we just learned about supplies we needed and preparing our cake for decorating.

We started learning decorating in our second class.

I made this red velvet cake right before Valentine’s Day. After we did our lessons, we didn’t have much time to work on our cakes, so I just used the star tip to do something quickly. You can see where the icing was too thin at the end.

My Valentine

My hubby picked up The Time Traveler’s Wife DVD on his home Tuesday when it came out because he knows I’ve been dying to see it since I first saw the previews but that I prefer watching movies at home than in the theater, and today he came home with a dozen red roses. Tomorrow night, we’ve got reservations at Michaelangelo’s, and I’m so excited because I haven’t been there in a long time and the food is excellent!

Homemade gift: pretty hand sanitizer

Now that Christmas is officially over, I’m getting myself excited for Valentine’s Day! I already picked out four cards and am trying to think of gifts.

I found this idea at Little Birdie Secrets who got it from Just a Girl, and I absolutely love it. It’s so easy, cute and practical. You just peel off the label, embellish with some stickers and tie it up nice with a ribbon. By the way, I love gifts that are also useful! This was definitely a success, and I can’t wait to make some more.

I bought a bottle of hand sanitizer and some Valentine-y stickers, and I immediately got to work when I got home because I just couldn’t wait to get started. I already had the ribbon from the same roll of ribbon I used to make a Christmas bow for Cady. I just need to get some Goo Gone to really get some of the sticky stuff off the back, and it’ll be perfect!

P.S. If you’re the recipient of one of these, sorry for ruining the surprise!
