Jimmy’s Thank You Notes:

Thank you, Jimmy!

Thank You, Jimmy!

Thank you, Fitbit, for making me feel like a crazy obsessed person.

Thank you, minis, for our early Valentines date. We partied at school, then I decided how about an early out with Mommy for a coffee/hot chocolate/tea and a cake pop date. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank You Notes: Our own early out for a sweet coffee date

Thank You Notes| Early V-DAY date

Thank you, two days of sun and unseasonable warm weather, for being the reason for us to break out the chancalas and grill!! I forgot how awesome grilled burgers are. We’ve actually cut out red meat from our diet, however I believe most things in moderation are good for the soul, especially a nice homemade American beef burger and fries.

Thank you, babe, for helping the kids and I put together Valentines. Translation: Thank you, for putting up with my micromanaging. ๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Effin' Valentine's Day

(I know, really mature, Dean! This is an old picture. My son was filling out Valentines and I couldn’t help but notice his hand placement, which prompted me to snap a picture without him knowing why, and sent it to my dad. I thought: this most be hereditary! ๐Ÿ˜€ )

Thank you, FOUR DAY WEEKEND!! I don’t think I have to explain.

Thank you, Babe, for being my Valentine. ๐Ÿ™‚ You’re my magic!

Our Anniversary 2012

Thank You Notes| My Forever Valentine

Lost Thank You Note:

Thank you, Influenster, for my happy mail!! The chips were gone upon opening the box, the kids and I loved them! The shampoo and conditioner smell amazing!!! My hair actually does look like I have a little more shine to it. ๐Ÿ™‚ As much as I’ve been crazy about getting my steps and after our crazy Saturday of non-stop fitness I could totally benefit from a salt soak, especially with sandal season on the horizon. Want to join Influenster and get free goodies? Join hereย ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank You Notes| New Year VoxBox

Inside in New Year's Voxbox

I’m about to get a little sappy, a little proud mommy, and maybe Valentine-sy. Are you ready? So, 14 years ago on Valentine’s Day my husband and I brought home the sweetest little Valentine. She changed our life, for the better. I may call her mini me, but this girl is so much more. She’s expanding her mind and reaching heights I only imagined to when I was her age. This weekend her hard work and dedication to excellency is being rewarded, and I am beyond proud. This weekend we’re attending a banquet honoring the winners of the VFW Essay Contest and Scholarship, my daughter won first place in her age group. I know this is just the beginning, she’s just getting started.

13 years

Thank you, birthday girl, my forever little valentine, for being awesome you. I’m so very thankful for you!! Break all the ceilings!!!! XOXO

Thank you, Friday, I’m in LOVE!! ย Celebrating with lemon cupcakes and the Cure!!!

Who or what is getting a thank you note from you this week?

  1. I love seeing the way that you look at things. Sometimes, I need to see others being positive and grateful when I am not capable of doing it myself at the moment.

    1. Thank you, Echo! I wish I could be positive & thankfully each second of the day, I’m not. I feel like the minute I started to change my mindset things began to change for me. Positivity, kindness, and gratefulness has helped with my past anxiousness & blues.

  2. You make a beautiful couple and have beautiful children too. I hear you on the American burger and fries. Steak fries to be exact. My indulgence for sure. Thanks for the party. Feel free to link at my party, still going on – Tuesday Talk and Party at My Place. Would love to have you.

    1. Thank you, Michelle!!! You’re so sweet ?
      Fries are my kryptonite! I plan on joining the party earlier this week. I just have to post my DIY post (ASAP). ?

  3. What a great week! You have some pretty amazing Valentines there ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m thankful for our fun weekend ahead with date night at a local art district, out of town visitors coming Sat for board games and a slumber party and duck pin bowling with friends on Sunday!

  4. haha, I don’t have a Fitbit but I think I’d go crazy with one. Jogging in place and the like. I only recently started power walking and just one Pure Barre class made me think I was like.. super cool or something.
    (Hi Elephant and Piggie!)
    Your daughter is the best Valentine ever.
    Your son’s middle finger is the second best Valentine ever!

    1. I’ve decided to chill with my Fitbit obsession this week. Congrats on working toward a healthier you this year!
      Thank you! ? I hope you had a love-filled Valentine’s Day!

  5. I love getting happy mail!

    And I also have a Fitbit. I’m usually in the corner walking back and forth so I can hit 10,000. My husband thinks I’m crazy.

    1. I think I’m crazy! I’ve done the same thing walking & jogging in place, I’m trying NOT to obsess this week…trying.
      Happy mail is one of the best things in the whole wide world.

  6. You guys are such a cute couple. I love the picture of your son with Elephant and Piggie. That’s wonderful that your daughter won the essay contest. I got the same Voxbox and I devoured the chips right after I took a picture of it. They were really good.
    I hope you guys enjoy your Valentine’s day ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you, Sonya! ๐Ÿ™‚
      I love that picture too.
      Thanks, we’re so proud of her!
      The chips were AWESOME!
      We did, I hope you did too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Congratulations and happy birthday to your daughter!! You must be so proud ๐Ÿ™‚
    (And I would find the same humor in the photo of my own child with the finger sticking out, haha!)

    1. Thank you, Bev!! We’re SO PROUD! ๐Ÿ™‚
      ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m glad you would too! And that’s why we click. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you, I’m glad I didn’t offend anyone. ๐Ÿ™‚ I just couldn’t let that opportunity go! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Thank you for the birthday wishes for my daughter! I hope this week is treating you well.

  8. Awwww, I love that you have a Valentine’s Day baby ๐Ÿ™‚ Beautiful family photographs–thank you so much for sharing! And for sharing Jimmy because Jimmy <3 I totally want to try those chips from Influenster–I see them at Whole Foods all the time, and they always look delicious!

    Hope you're having a great week! XOXO

    1. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you, Charlotte!
      The Way Better Snacks’ chips were good, I could’ve devoured the whole bag by myself, but kids. ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. PS: I totally thought I was the only one who walked in place like that, LOL. My bf makes fun of me all the time. “THE NEIGHBORS ARE GOING TO SEE YOU!” I’m like “I don’t care–I’m almost at 10K.” ๐Ÿ™‚ Ha!

    1. HaHA!! Yes!! You are not alone. Sometimes I even turn on music and dance in the house… alone… with the shades open. ๐Ÿ˜€
