Our Valentines Weekend

This Valentines weekend kicked off with a fun playdate with some of our friends. We organized a little craft, mini terracotta pots and patio-friendly paint so the babies could make hearts using their thumbprints.

I don't think I realized how difficult this would be with a nine month old who likes to touch everything and have her fingers in her mouth. Somehow, we made it work without any paint accidents (hallelujah) and now I have a cute pot to plant some seeds in this spring.




(Want to recreate this? You can find mini terracotta pots and patio-friendly paint on Amazon.)

We also went to a 2nd birthday party for a little friend that was held at My Gym, a little indoor play area for kids. Camille is obviously not walking yet so a lot of what she could do was limited, but she was able to enjoy a lot of the stations with my help -- the ball pit, the small slide, and the parachute activities. It was really cute seeing her have fun and watch the older kids intently. I've heard My Gym can be a little expensive to join, but I could certainly see taking her there from time to time. 

Saturday afternoon we went to the mountains for a quick trip. Ian and I had plans to have a low-key dinner at the house, so we went out in the late afternoon to Over Yonder to enjoy a cocktail and an appetizer for Valentines Day. Right when we arrived, it was snowing!







It surprisingly wasn't COLD COLD COLD but the temperature was starting to drop and we wanted to make sure we were home before dark. We left the Valle Crucis area and headed towards Boone.

Dinner was super fancy ... takeout from Mellow Mushroom! We went with the Kosmic Karma pizza which has a delicious pesto swirl on the top of it. We enjoyed it that night with a little wine and some Dateline. Very low-key, but very "us" :)

We did get my car stuck in the snowy driveway on the way back up to the house. Such is mountain life, I guess. Ian shoveled it out the next morning and we headed home where the temps were slightly less freezing. 

Hope you had a beautiful and love-filled weekend!

  16. Don't get wasted I am here to talk about my past experiences with spell casters..i had problems with my relationship and i did all to make sure that my woman never break up with me..all in the midst of this, i lost concentration at work and things went really bad for me as i lost my job too..the little money i saved was what i tried to get my wife back with even if i will loose all..i was too desperate and i was taken advantage of as i lost the same money on two different casters from Nigeria. of course i trusted them too much and never knew they did nothing for me so my woman went ahead with breaking up with me..i confronted them that they failed their promise and ever since then, i have never heard a world again from them..That was how fake casters ended my relationship with my woman and i planned i was going to stop everyone like them..i met with another that promised me to get her back to me and i almost laughed and said it was another lie, but he wasn't as he did cast a love spell on her and now we are talking of why we did break up and coming back together in just two days and not months like the other did made me wait..you see why you have to open you eyes and think before the liars here plays with your heart and trust like a toy.{GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM}tel.+2348057266712..he can also help you to solve any problem…Lol I am very happy now.Claudy
