Friend Makin' Monday: Valentine's Day

This week Amber is asking this:

1) How did you spend your Valentine's Day? What did you get? What did you do?

2) A list of your top reasons/things that would have made it even better.

We spent most of our Valentine's Day at my in-laws house. We started off the day at our house. We gave the kids their boxes of candies and little stuffed animals, as we do every year. We let them eat one piece of chocolate (even though it was morning and before lunch!). Then Brilliant B. gave me my gift. He gave me a sweet, thoughtful card, 2 big Reece's Peanut Butter Hearts (since I can't eat tree nuts he doesn't give me the box of mixed chocolate so we don't end up with an accidental allergic reaction on V-Day!) and a new, bigger wedding band. Mine had become tight and uncomfortable and he got me the same band in a bigger size! It was the best gift EVER!! Now I can wear my band during this pregnancy without fear of it cutting off circulation!

After all gifts were opened and everyone was dressed, we headed out the back door and across the alley to the in-laws house where we chatted and watched the Daytona 500. The kids helped their grandma fix the various things for dinner later that night. A few hours after we got there, my mother-in-law says, "I just can't wait anymore" and goes and gets the gift she got me for Valentine's day. I opened it and it was an outfit for the baby to wear next Valentine's day!!!! Of course, it is a little girl's outfit and my Mother-in-law says that she is putting in her vote for a girl!! She was just so excited about it all!! After the race was over, we all sat down to a dinner of grilled pork, grilled pineapple, loaded baked potatoes, green beans, and homemade bread and followed the delicious meal with homemade banana pudding!

It was such a wonderful day that really nothing could have made it better and I wouldn't change a single thing about the day filled with LOVE!
