Happy Hearts Day!

What makes a better Valentine's Day than heart-shaped jello jigglers?

Don't forget the "heart footprints" as Anna so excitedly called the remains in the pan. Creative, that girl is.

Ok, maybe I wasn't really feeling like pulling out the rolling pin for sugar cookies. But at least we used cookie cutters. And we had fun!

Last night Dan and I got a sitter and had a blissful 3-hour date night out without the kids. We had dinner at Olive Garden along with apparently half of Houston, considering the hour wait, but that chicken alfredo was definitely worth it. We did end the night by stopping at the grocery store for milk, cheese, and eggs. That's a lot cooler than it sounds, of course, since I can't remember the last time we've been in a store together without the kids. Ah, the little things.

Oh, and I have to post about the fun wreaths I made this year! This has been floating around all the craft blogs I haunt, and I fell in love with it and had to try my hand at it. Simple, elegant, and I love it!

I couldn't find a 12" wreath, so I bought the 9" one for the first go around. Then when I found the bigger one, I had to make another to fit the front door better, so now the 9" is hanging over our mirror.

Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you all had a fun weekend!

Liz - I love those. you'll have to send me a link to a site where I can learn how to make on. They are so elegant.

Katie said...

I agree with Melissa. I want to know how to make those.

I'll post a link to the blogs I saw them on. They're really pretty simple to make! Just a little time consuming to cut the felt, but it was worth it.
