we are so dang romantic that we take up a whole week for valentine’s crap. no? okay.
so dustin left for pennsylvania on thursday morning. yep, valentine’s day. for the whole weekend. for something. don’t ask me to explain it because i obviously didn’t listen that well. it has to do with grants. all i know is that the kids got shirts from a rock-n-roll hall of fame. i got nothing. he said that he bought a newspaper from a homeless man that was written by homeless people that he knew i would want to read. but he left that in the rental car. so, ya. nothing for the wifey from his trip.
so since he was gonna be outta town we celebrated the weekend before vday.
i had a busy morning. 90th birthday party. baby shower. getting rammed in the lip by haden’s hard head.
ouch … this picture does not even do the swollenness of this lip justice. seriously. people couldn’t/wouldn’t even look me in the eyes while speaking to me. it was like their eyes were just drawn to the massive clear blister taking up the majority of my lip. sad.
masyn hung out with me that morning. haden hung out with dustin. i like spending the day with my sweet girl. thank you instagram for making my lip look smaller. geez.
after all the celebrations we hung out on the couch. napping. watching batman. it was a good saturday.
after naps me and dustin got all spruced up for our date. and packed these little munchkin’s bags for pops and meems’ house.
is it wrong to take their picture while they are being punished? no? okay, good.
they were fighting. non-stop. so they had to sit on the ottoman [whilst i took their photo] holding hands telling one another ways they could be kind to one another.
yes, i'm that mom.
haden: i will be kind to you and let you play with my batman.
masyn: i will be kind by not kicking sand in your eyes.
date night commences. we met pops and meems in the parking lot of a wedding they went to, transferred kids and luggage, gave kisses and skedaddled to our date.
where we consumed massive amounts of appetizers, steaks and all the fixin’s on a giftcard. and dustin consumed this chocolate-covered cheesecake. i nibbled on that back corner not covered in chocolate. i'm more of a strawberry cheesecake girl. dustin lives for caramel and chocolate covered cheesecake. lives. for. it.
and can I just say yay for free meals on gift cards!
and the movies. we saw the movie about the forty-year olds from knocked up … whatever that was called. pretty funny.
and sometimes i annoy the crap out of him. this was one of those times. but whatever. date night picture …
so that was our valentine’s date. it was a super fun night out!
oh, and my lip was almost back to normal before we left. THANKFULLY.
so, then on wednesday our valentine’s week continued.
masyn had her vday party at preschool. where she took all her friends “I think you are just write” pencils. and her friends filled her bag with tons of red and pink sweet crap.
obviously i am using the word ‘kind’ a little too much because she used it to describe her party … “mrs. mary, weren’t my friends SO KIND to give me all this stuff?” haha.
and dustin took us to leal’s for supper that night. mexican … now that is my love language.
and i made him a cheesecake. his love language. however, he left the next morning so i had a whole cheesecake in my fridge all weekend. thankfully i also had so much other sweet stuff that i didn’t eat the whole thing.
masyn, haden and all the cousins got little target mailboxes stuffed with candy. i'm positive their mamas loved that.
me and the kids spent thursday evening opening grandparent’s vday gifts and watching luke’s last basketball game of the season. and i cracked my phone. happy valentine’s day to me!
later we facetimed with daddy. well. I facetimed. the kids wrestled. they were jacked up on sweets. and seriously didn’t wanna go to sleep. he seemed amused by it. probably because he was thousands of miles away and didn’t have to put them to bed.
and finally. last picture. showing off some of our valentine’s day loot. spiderman shirt, minnie jammies, lip gloss necklace, books, bracelets. and there was candy, candy and more candy galore!
it was a good one! xoxo
