Another Valentine’s Post

I had a very good Valentine’s weekend. For the past month I’ve been decorating our living room with the valentines I both made and received in this year’s family swap. 


 



These cards all look so good and add a bit of colour to our drab apartment, so I will likely be keeping them up for for the rest of February.



On Saturday, my boyfriend (Nick) and I had dinner together and finished watching “Arrested Development” season two. Then we played around with his guitar and watched some YouTube videos.



On Sunday I had a quite a surprise when I got home from church (which was also great, thanks to brownies in Relief Society, and M&Ms and a Peep Colouring book in Sacrament Meeting). After we had left, Nick came over and left flowers and a dish of my favorite candies (Dove chocolates) on our kitchen table. Then he had made a trail of chocolates to the dresser in my room where there were even more flowers and chocolates and a card! It was so cute!





For lunch, he cooked some tilapia and rice pilaf. We just hung out and relaxed for a while until my favorite movie, “Northanger Abbey” was on and we watched that. We both were really hungry and didn’t have much food around, so we waited until midnight to go to McDonalds. When we came back, we watched “50 First Dates,” which was really cute.



So it was basically a perfect day. Nick did really well for just having lost his ACL last Monday!



Hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day as well!

Be My Valentine?

This year, some of the women in my family decided to do a valentine swap. I made a valentine for each of them and sent them out toward the end of January. In return, each of those people sent me a Valentine. It was so much fun and I would love to do it again next year.



I love the cards I made (okay maybe that sounds a little vain, but I spent quite a bit of time on them), so I am going to share them with all of you. If you like them, feel free to print some out on some cardstock or photo paper.


Someone told me that some of these were a little risqué…so you be the judge, or not. You just do what you’ve got to do.

Well there you go. Some cute Valentines for your 2010. As you can see I included a Windows 7 card for my dad (I couldn’t send cards to everyone at home and not send one for him), and a special Zac Efron card for my youngest sister. I also made a couple for my roommates and some friends of mine. I can’t wait to share the ones I received, but this post is already long enough, so that will have to wait.

:-D
