for the love of february....

my month, thus far:
has been {slightly} insane/crazy/insert synonym for psycho-busy here.

between my lil family life, sparatic work projects, custom scrapbooking jobs, church stuff, and american idol watching, i've found little time to be doing all the FUN february-ish, happy, lovey, pink, festive type things that I oh-so enjoy, such as:

decorating the abode here & there with pink & red & sparkle, making yummy sugar heart-shaped cookies topped with lottsa frosting-n-red hots, sporting my tdf apron from ames {chloe has a matching one}, creating custom heart-ish surprises for my family, leaving cheesy love notes for my husband in his car, heck, let's get real...even doing enough laundry in time to have chloe wear something red today...

i was feeling a little down about this when i woke up realizing that it's already the big holiday & i haven't even made time to celebrate! while i should have been soaking in this amazing lovey time of year, i was in turn growing golf-ball-sized stress knots on the tops of my shoulders!

but: i have made a decision.


i am still going to decorate for valentines. i am still going to make said heart-shaped cookies. we're still gonna sport our sweet aprons. i am still going to create something for my family members. i am still going to leave cheesy notes to my husband in his car. i am still going to do the laundry, and see if chloe's red outfit still fits.

{just not today.}

today is for going to the park with cute friends.
today is for buying a new outfit @ target for chloe because nothing is clean.
today is for visiting granny.
today is for saying happy birthday to rachel & arizona!
today is for watching oprah & crying when patti labell came out & made some cute man's dreams come true.
today is for eating sugar, even though you are on a sweet strike.
today is for saying "word up" that the writers strike is OVER.
today is for loving pink.
today is for watching no reservations for the second time this week.
today is for putting the girl down @ seven & ordering take out.

♥♥♥

we are gonna celebrate all freakin' month, i say.

and: myron just informed me that his present to me is that he's vacuuming & mopping the downstairs today.

thank you heavenly father, for sending me a valentine who knows that mopping rocks roses anyday!!!

{happy ♥ day}
may the month o' love begin!

oh! and i'm having a par-tay...stay tuned tomorrow, for the details...

Peg and Parker said...

Can I get an Amen here? I'm in for the month long celebration. Twill prolly take that long to put away the red stuff @ my house anyway. Red, pink, always a good idea. Love your blog girl! Heart, Peg

Amy said...

Love the post Angie! I totally love *love* so keep it up all month! Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. You are a doll! You must share the project when it's complete. I just bought a bunch of the cricut vynil (that totally looks like it's spelled wrong) and I really want do do some fun quotes and such around the house. Preview of the laundry room quote "dull women have immaculate homes". SOOOO fits me!! Heading your way this weekend so visit Nicole...SO happy she's back from Canada I missed her muchly. I hope you and the fam have a lovely weekend!

Marilyn said...

Take out and mopping-that's my kind of Valentine's. Hope you had a happy day...BTW...is that Granny's yard?? LOVE the flowers!

Bryant & Steph said...

Perfect! I am all about the service valentine's!! You are amazing.

cori said...

cori said...

and i would welcome mopping and cleaning any day! so romantic!

Em said...

Heck I would've taken my Valentine just taking out the trash! Here's to not having to cook on V-day! Take out's the best. Feb. should be just called love month. Why not?

chris & amber said...

Here's a BIG FAT AMEN to ya, sista! I'm dying to see No Reservations! I chuckled at Chloe's OOC hair in the pic. She brightens my day...even on this rainy day!

Ryan said...

I SO second the "mopping over roses" business. Ryan made my kitchen sparkle after I created a SERIOUS disaster area from making cakes and fondue. Gotta love boys who know what's up on the day of love.

Ryan said...

P.S. It's me Kayt, I don't know how I posted under Ryan.

Oh, and YAY for our sweet strike break! I'm pretty sure I ate a month's worth of sweets in one day :)

Kylie said...

Those were my thoughts EXACTLY! I was a little sad yesterday when I realized I didn't get valentines in the mail for out of state cousins or mail out cute valentines cards that I made or make the hot fudge I was going to take to all our neighbors/cousins. And when yesterday came, I realized there was nothing I could do about it. So I am in for an all month celebration! Maybe I'll plan my chocolate fondue party after all!!!

Chelsea said...

Did you not get the memo this year...v-day is on the 24th!! :) I LOVE the pic of your girlie with her cell phone. So cute!! Your sentsy stuff sounds so cool. Do they have scratch and sniff cards? If so...send me one! :) I would love to smell some good stuff and then order. I am not brave enough to order first!

Fat & Sassy said...

HUUUDY HU! I love the idea of valentine's day LASTING all month, such a great idea, my friend. I must say I like pretty much ALL of your ideas. Chloe is a little doll...just like her mama

Kaylea said...

love it, love it, love it. You crack me up! I didn't do anything cute for v-day for anybody. Reading your post makes me want to celebrate it over and do it right. I'm so glad the strike is over too! I'm sick of having nothing to watch on TV.

ForeverSarahLee said...

P.S. I friggin' LOVE that movie too! Zoe, cute name...

Kaelene said...

you are the cutest, Ang! I really liked "No Reservations" too!
hey, celebrate like its Valentine's day all year round -- one can NEVER have too much love, right??
