Our 1st & 5th Valentines Day!

I have never been a girl to make Valentines day a huge deal, although yesterday I must admit that was pretty amazing. My parents were always wonderful about sending flowers to school and giving us candies at home to make our day feel special. So I guess it's in my blood to do the same with Charli Beth. Although, we were not allowed to send special treats for our children to the school. I let her open her gifts before we headed out yesterday morning and then took her a rose whenever we picked her up. She was the sweetest little thing, ever.

She also received a bear, a card and stickers from her Pa & a bear from 5oh!
She wore her Valentines outfit from the photo-shoot which was made by Sew Much Love Designs.We stayed the weekend at 5oh's house since he was working third shift and I was off, but we had plans that kept us busy in his town. We went to the rodeo on Saturday night and whenever we came home, he had to leave straight for work.

I wanted to give him his "surprise" because I had been telling him that I had one for a week or so. {I honestly hadn't planned for it to be a Valentines gift, it just fell that way.} So whenever he came to his house for "lunch" I went ahead and gave it to him. I wasn't expecting to receive such a beautiful necklace in return. I'm pretty sure that it stomped all over my corny gift to him! ha!

We honestly spent Valentines day napping because I have an awful cold and having lunch at the local Mexican restaurant in my town so we could pick CB up from school on time.

I had to come into work yesterday afternoon and was surprised with flowers! I am t-totally in love with the fact that he remembered how much I hate roses. I thought they were cute and very spring like! co-worker told me they were very pretty and look just like the flowers that were in her daughter in laws casket.
I had no words to say to that! hahaha.

After I left work last night, I drove to his house and baked valentines cookies and watched a movie. Even though I felt bad I wouldn't have had it any other way. He truly is amazing.After I came to work yesterday, CB surprised me with a cute cupcake from Gigi's. these things are delish!
She also had the prettiest flowers and card set out for me yesterday morning as well - I failed to get a photo though!
This is the photobook that I made 5oh for his surprise! I don't mind for anyone to take a look at it, I would just follow the instructions that I posted below!

If you plan to view the photo book, click the link to view it larger. Then go to full screen view and then the single page view icon (which is the icon that is a single square.) Some of the "reasons" are very hard to read so I'll list them =)

*The way you love me
*Your smile
*Your blue eyes
*The butterflies that I get whenever you kiss me
*The love that you have for Charli Beth & the way you are with her
*The determination that you have, in everything you do
*Your dorky laugh whenever you act goofy
*How you hold my hand whenever you're driving
*The smile you had on your face the night that Charli told you that she loves you
*How you never gave up on us
*How you look up to your Father, and admire your Mother
*Your temper; how protective you are of your loved ones
*Your obsession for Gus McCrae
*How particular you are about your uniform
*Your love for gunner man.
*When you sing while you're driving
*How excited you & Gunner get about "catching the bad guys"; the love you have for your career

There is a letter at the end of it that you can read if you want. It's sappy and corny, but hey that's how love goes right?!

Thank you to everyone whether it was my family, boyfriend, blog friend or friendly passer by that made my Valentines day as special as it was for CB and I both!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
