Best Valentine's Day Ever!!!

I love Valentine's day! I admit I am a bit of a holiday junkie but Valentine's day is a favorite for sure! And this Valentine's day was the best one yet! 

I started the day making 35 marshmallow lollipops! I had planned on dipping them in white chocolate and sprinkles...but after a epic fail on the melting front, plain had to do! Tip: Roll the skewers lightly in butter and the marshmallows slide right on! 

 Half of the lollipops were taken to Asher's very first Valentine's day potluck/party! It was fun but we didn't stay long. Chasing a 16 month old around in the already hot Arizona sun at 9 months pregnant - exhausting!

After some down time relaxing on the couch with an extra large ice cold Diet Coke I regained my energy (Thank you lovely caffeine!) and added a little Asher flair to the 2nd half of the lollipops! Yo Gabba Gabba Valentines? Yes, yes they are!!!

We then drove around delivering them to Asher's little friends! I had so much fun I literally was driving around from house to house with a cheesy smile on my face! I was like, bring on the poopy diapers, this mom stuff is so much fun!

Once home from that adventure I sat down to edit the pictures I'd taken a few days ago of Asher for Valentine's day! The shoot had not gone well so I was thrilled to have a few good ones! You can see my favorites from the shoot HERE.Then I made this little Valentine which I posted to Facebook & emailed to family!

That's when things when from great to best day ever! Present time! The hubs and I don't really do gifts for each other at Christmas since we're so busy buying, wrapping and giving to family & friends...not to mention the hit it has on our bank account! But we love it and so it's worth it! So Valentine's has always been a fun gift holiday for us. And this one...I will say it again, best Valentine's ever because look what I was spoiled with!

Spoiled...YES! And SOOOOO excited!

We finished up the day with pizza and a movie! (No not a heart shaped pizza...not worth the extra $5.00!) But delicious it was and it was a nice relaxing night! I hope you all had a fabulous day as well and I'd love to hear about it in the comments! As well as any tips, for using my new Silhouette!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Sounds like a great day! I got a silhouette for Christmas, and I'm STILL figuring it out, there's just sooo much you can do with it, so far I can cut paper, and vinyl. I've got a ways to go! We can figure it out together:)

Staci I'm surprised you haven't tried cutting fabric yet! You can get their version of "Wonder Under" and cut the fabric for appliques like your XOX shirt you made for V-day! I think fabric cutting for appliques and heat transfer for shirts is what I'm most excited about!

Oh congrats!! I looove my silhouette but I haven't had much of a chance to use it! You'll have to to post a tutorial when you do some fabric cutting because that's one thing I want to try but just haven't had the guts to do :)
