Happy Valentine's Day

So today is the annual day o' love. We truly aren't huge participants in this holiday but don't totally ignore it either. I gave Tonto a cute card with the pics of the pups and the girl. He reciprocated with an amazing card this morning and left a card and chocolates for the girl.

Little tip: if you want to impress a woman, leave sweet Valentines for your kiddos. :-)

Sixth grade is apparently the year Valentine's Day parties cease in our school district and that makes me so sad, y'all. Luckily for me, Rambo is at school today and they're having a very special day of fun complete with exchanging Valentines, treats, sweet bandanas and bubbles!

Last year we just took cards but Rambo received lots of treats from his friends so we upped our game this year and included Milk Bones. The Puppy Posse may or may not have done some quality control testing of said bones. :-)

My decorations this year are pretty much the same last year with two exceptions: first, I finally unpacked the last box of goodies from my grandparents house and found this amazing red glassware. I felt like it definitely needed to join the festive party, for sure.

And my mom gave me this apothecary jar, which I think will be perfect for changing out seasonally. I picked up these styrofoam balls at Hobby Lobby for next to nothing. They have all kinds of colors and are a great option since the glass is very thin. Next up will be St. Patrick's Day and I'm not sure what I'll use then but I think Easter eggs will be cute as well. Yes, I decorate for every major and minor holiday. :-)

And, finally, the little heartbreaker himself in his new holiday themed neckwear! 

Happy Valentine's Day, friends!

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
