a busy weekend & first valentine's memories

Another weekend has flown by, and I am seriously bumming that tomorrow is Monday already! I am feeling really excited about all the things we accomplished this weekend.  This week I got a really nice BONUS check from my job! I've said it a million times, and I will say it again, God is SO good to us! In an economy where people are struggling to find jobs and make it through each day, He has been blessing us left and right and His favor and blessing is so evident on our lives it's awesome.  I say that not to brag on us, but to give glory to Him for all the good things He has done for us.  We are more grateful that words could say! It's nothing that we could do on our own, but only what He can do for us! It's amazing to see God's word work in our life, He is such a good Father!

With that said, we had the extra money to buy some furniture pieces we need to finish off our loft.  YAY! You know it's bad news for your bank account when you take TWO cars to Target just to get your purchases home, and then need TWO carts for all your purchases! Hahaha :) Sad, but true! We bought the final bookshelf, a desk, side table, and a lamp.  My awesome hubby spent all day putting everything together!

I'm an awesome helper...really I am :)

We bought a 4th bookshelf to complete the loft! 

Love, love, LOVE!

My handy man :)

I also got to get my craft on this weekend! I got to revamp a chair that we are going to use for the desk chair. I don't know about you but typical office clunky chairs are UGLY in my opinion.  The chair revamp is SO fab, it deserves its own post, so keep your eyes peeled, I will be doing that this week! I am falling so in love with my loft.  It's near being complete, we ordered our loveseat this weekend as well and as soon as that is delivered I will do another post showing you the finished result.  It's gonna be fab!

Today, we got to spend some time with sweet little Brinley! I love it when my sister in law asks me to watch either of her boys.  We love spending time with them so it's always an YES on our end!  We got to spend time with sweet Brins since they were taking his big bro ice skating.  We had such a fun afternoon with our sweet little chunkers.

Of course, first stop the pantry!! This kid loves to eat!

Aww this melts my heart!

Who could not love this face?!?!

We had such a fun day with this little buggy! 

So, I know I am getting long winded here, but with tomorrow being Valentine's day I wanted to reminisce about Scott & I's first Valentine's day together.  We celebrated our very first V-day together back in 2003, we had been dating for about 2 months and it's quite evident in the card I got from him. 

See that, it's a mushy romantic card and what's that a PERSONAL hand written note? That's banana's! It's something that's truly foreign in any card that I have received post marriage.  I love looking back at this and seeing how sweet, cheesy, and newly in love we were.  It's adorable!

I guess he really did mean what he wrote...all these years later and still very much in love!!!

Our romantic dinner at Panera back in 2003! It really was cute since it's the same place we went on our first date.

Hope you all have a great Valentine's day with your love!
