From My Funny Valentine :)

Jim didn't get off work until 8:30 p.m. last night, but on his way home, he stopped by a Hallmark store to get me a little something for Valentine's Day. He knows that we can't afford much right now, but he said he had to do something for me :) He got me the cutest little Beanie Baby, a heart shaped paperweight/picture frame & a gorgeous card.
Jim knows how much I love pink & brown together, so when I saw this beanie, it was PERFECT! If I could, I'd paint my scraproom pink & brown, but I'm not sure how much our landlords would like that :)
As soon as I opened the card, the first thing I asked him was if I could use that heart on a scrapbook layout! LOL It's so cool.....it's beaded & has a crystal dangling from the bottom! Since he didn't like the idea of tearing the card apart to put it on a layout (dang!) he did agree that I should hang it from the mirror in my car, which is exactly what I plan on doing. It's just too pretty to just stay in a card, don't ya think?
While Jim was at work, I did some baking :) I had these heart shaped Reese's Peanut Butter cups that I bought last year (luckily, they were still good) & made little heart-shaped peanut butter cookies with them.....just like the ones I make at Christmas using the round Reese's.
Aren't they adorable? And they're so yummy, too.....you'll just have to trust me on that one :)

Today, I'm thinking about going out to the Zone for their Freaky Friday sale just to see what new stuff they have in. Then tomorrow, Jim bowls in the Mid-Michigan tournament (the one where he finished in second place 2 years ago). I was going to bowl in it, but since I've been having a bad year this year, I decided to get someone to bowl for me. I'll still be up there cheering them on, though. Sunday is the Daytona 500, so you know where Jim & I will be.....glued in front of the tv! YAY!!! The Boys Are Back In Town!!! The Boys Are Back In Town!!!

That's all for now.....have a great weekend!

Hi, Benita, what lovely heart-y goodness! How sweet are those cookies and that bear?

Hey, you asked about the wood letters on my blog? Well, you are in luck, Missy, since I see you, like me, are a Hobby Lobby shopper, LOL. Actually I ordered them off their Crafts Etc. website. I hate enabling you since you've mentioned you are $$-tight right now, but ordered over $25 ship for free, so I don't even go to the store anymore, LOL. These letters were like $.99 and are two-each, so I could have ordered less A's, E's and R's but oh well, now I have extra. Hope that helps!

What a sweet husband! The beaded card embellishment is way too cute to leave on the card. Glad he compromised that you could hang it in the car. A nice reminder of your husband wherever you go. :)

My dh got me the same heart shaped paper weight and I made the cutest collage with a picture of my son in it! It turned out adorable! I was curious if any other scrappers got it and what they did with it...lol!
