My Valentines


Valentine's Day is kind of hit or miss around here ... one year it was a surprise hotel room decorated with roses and chocolates and the next year went without even a card. This year fell somewhere in between as far as the actual day. Last night Joshua and I went out for our favorite bite - BBQ and sweet tea. Today we all three spent the day together hanging around the house and then out running errands. We got a movie to watch both last tonight and today, but they both ended up being flops. I couldn't even sit through the first 10 minutes. Anyhow, the best part of this "holiday" is yet to come. My sweet hubby scheduled a 4-5 hour deep cleaning of our house! Whoopee! I never really understood why my mom always asked for a clean house as a gift, but now I get it. True love at its finest. I got him Chinese food and chocolate ice cream, he got me a maid. What can I say? We know each other pretty well!

Mike and I kinda did our own deep cleaning the day before the Super Bowl. I am happy to report that my house is still clean three weeks later. My kids are even picking up their toys without a fuss. We are all enjoying a clean house. Hopefully having a spotless house will inspire you too!

It sounds like a fantastic Valentine's Day. I ran some errands yesterday too and the stores were empty. It felt like a Monday afternoon instead of a Saturday! Awesome.
