V-Day 2016 is in the Books

Let me start with saying that nothing I do will make this left justification work. #bloggerproblems

This boy is getting bigger and bigger every day and learning so much. The other day he called me "mean mama" which turned out to be cuter than I thought it would. 

At the last minute I made this tag and stapled them to a small bag of chips. All along I had planned on doing chocolate bars wrapped with a cute Valentine saying for my co-workers. With it only being the second month of 2016, a lot of our teachers are dieting and well being an elementary school we already have a lot of chocolate around. The chips were a big hit. 

Staying on the diet was extra hard on Friday. I received so much candy. I also got this wonderful smelling soap and the tag attached is just too much cuteness. (now my left justification is working-go figure)

Jack also walked away with a bag full of loot. This is the first class party I missed and boy did I hate missing it. When he got home we went through his bag and we both had a few bites. He wanted the chocolate and I wanted the Airheads.

We have eaten chocolate or candy for dessert with every meal. Eggs, biscuits, bacon and a chocolate heart. Sloppy joes with a side of fun dip. All that chocolate and candy we had on Friday just might be extinct come Monday morning. Isn't that what you are suppose to do-get rid of it all.

I had to buy bacon this morning and the store was stocked with peeps, Reese peanut butter eggs, jelly beans, and lots of other candy like those Russell Stover nests made with coconut.

Holidays ruin diets.

Friday I came home to precious cards from two wonderful bloggers Whitney and Tabitha. Snail mail is a wonderful thing. Bloggers are keeping the mailmen (or in our case mailwomen) in business.

Olive did such an amazing job painting her card. This is the second year getting a card from Tabitha. Both ladies had the sweetest things to say and sure make a gal feel special. 

Ran into Wal-mart for milk and walked out with 8 of these bad boys. 

This picture does not do it justice-they were huge. I figured if I were getting chocolate then I needed wine and if I were getting wine then I needed new pajamas and if I had new pajamas then I needed a new book. 

These were very dangerous chocolate dipped strawberries. 

I had a lovely night so it was worth it all. 

I'm in love with this book. It is like reading posts from your favorite blogger. Shonda is smart and oh so funny. I can't believe I waited this long to pick up this book. If you haven't read it, stop what you are doing and add it to your shopping list, or goodreads, or Kindle, or forehead. You will love it-promise. 

Have you read Year of Yes? If so, what did you love about it?


  1. Sounds like a pretty great weekend! Your chip idea for co-workers was really fun. I can never turn down a cheeto or dorito. Glad you both got some fun treats to enjoy over the weekend. We loved our valentine from you all and it's hanging on the fridge. I've been craving chocolate covered strawberries, but haven't found any great options. So I might just have to make my own the next time I find some great strawberries :)

  2. We had way too much candy after Valentine's Day, too!! I'm beginning to think we only have so many holidays to keep us from successfully dieting! Lol Glad you had such a wonderful weekend!

    Thank you for sharing with us at #MommyMeetupMondays!

  3. Sounds like such a great time! And that book sounds fantastic! Definitely adding it to my to-read list - love her! Thanks so much for sharing at the Best of the Blogosphere Link-Up! Hope to see you again tomorrow :)
