a condensed version of my weekend

So here is my version of Cardstore's printable Valentine's Day cards. I had to make my own because our printer isn't working, but I give full credit to Cardstore because it's such a cleaver idea!  At first I thought I would surprise Brand with these hearts when he came home from school, but it ended up that I woke up early and did it before he left. It was fun to see his reaction.  I love the little things. And it turns out that he hid my Valentine's Day card in the fridge riiiight by the milk. I should have guessed it would be there, the night before he was asking me what my morning routine was... what a goof.

Our Valentine's Day evening was good. Brand had school until 8 pm, which I was seriously annoyed about, but oh well. We didn't go all out for Valentine's Day, but again we like the simple things. We went to Five Guys, one of my favorite hamburger places ever, and then we got some cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory! (chocolate mouse if you must ask)
Brand has finals this week and was studying for most of the weekend, so I put on my big girl pants and headed out on an adventure all by my self.  I don't like going places by myself, but if I just get that little puuush to go, I could be out all night. So I went to all my stores, Target, Hobby Lobby, Tjmaxx, and Barnes and Nobel, you know the stores that are all by each other so that I didn't have to drive around so much.  I love just browsing and I also love people watching.  Sometimes I get creepy though. So I was at Barnes and Nobel looking at the crochet books, and then I walked by the Starbucks when all of a sudden I saw this older guy stand up from his table and head to the books.  I was rather intrigued because he looked like he was on a serious mission, so I followed behind him.  Okay, I wasn't right behind him so that it was that creepy, but I walked toward the general area he was in.  I found him in the diet section-he didn't look like he needed to go on a diet- and that's where my interest ended. There sure are some interesting people at the library.  And is it just me or do you take a deeeep breath when you walk through the library doors? I love the smell of coffee and books mixed together.

Anyways, the rest of the night I was at Hobby Lobby trying to figure out what kind of quilt I want to make.  The hardest part is finding a pattern and then picking the fabric. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them.  I'm loving all these bright/old fashion colors, but which ones do I pick?

Happy Monday Friends! 


  1. What a cute idea with the Valentine's notes! And, chocolate mousse cheesecake is the BEST.


  2. Mmmm 5 Guys is hands down the best fast food burger place...way better than In-and-Out ha. Sounds like my kind of date night :D Love the crochet heart garland! So cute! Congrats again on dental school! The first year is a little rough, but then it's smooth sailing!
