Valentines Day

This year, our Valentines Day lasted almost as long as Christmas. Seriously. It spread across probably two weeks. We had some problems coordinating/communicating with UPS, so that stretched it out. The funny part was that Marcus and I obviously didn't talk about what we were getting each other, but we ended up both getting a dvd and a book. And we watched the movie he gave me last night :) Marcus bought me The Help, which is probably one of the best movies ever. If you haven't seen it or read it, DO IT NOW! You won't regret it. I didn't really have many pictures, but here's what I had on my phone.

This is what I left out for Marcus before work. I had a closing shift, so I had slept in :)
We were also surprised and happy to find this box from Marcus' family-- two boxes of Carnation Instant Breakfasts! Marcus had been so sad when he realized the Costco out here doesn't carry them. But we're pretty stocked up now!
And my family sent a box of little brownies from Fairytale Brownies. If you ever need to send treats anywhere, get them from here! Sooooooo good! I thought about taking a picture of the cute box, but we tore into it pretty quickly :)

We also decided to go out to California Pizza Kitchen later in the week. I won't lie, I really wanted Cafe Rio, Zupas, or Texas Roadhouse, but the great west coast chain restaurants still haven't quite made it out here. One day. But I love CPK, and we had a great time eating way too much delicious pizza. (And it's conveniently located close to Marcus' work-- I think we'll be going back again soon!)

Be Kind and (H)onest

Now that we actually have a table, I can do projects again. Not that I ever did a ton, but it's nice to have the option :) I decided it was time to bust out the sewing machine and working on the monthly square project Nana started. It's a little trickier on my own, but I manged to figure it out again.

Obviously Chicago wanted in on the action too.
I just about finished 'Be Kind.' I have to finish outlining and add the face details.
Same with 'Be Honest.' Except I have to figure out what happened what happened to the H. I'm sure it's around somewhere, and I'll probably find it while I clean up the mess on the table.
My progress :)
Only eight (and two final details) left to go :)
