Hearts are Cool - so are GIANT Hearts

Well gosh, everyone has been posting about Valentines Day so I guess I will too.  Valentines Day this year was on February 14, 2011.....ha ha ha. I asked my dear Watson to get me one of those little heart shaped boxes of chocolates (the ones that have 4 chocolates in them), and instead, he got me a GIANT heart shaped box of chocolates, a microwave cover and a six pack..... of Propel - AND he stayed under our budget.

We have been married for almost 9 months now, and although the adjustment to us and we has been difficult for this independent and stubborn girl, I keep having these moments where I look at my husband in utter amazement and think ..."you married me?" I wish I could articulate what I want to say about my dear Watson in a way that wouldn't go too deep for all you weak stomachs out there, but would still do him justice.  Basically, I'm so glad it was in Heavenly Father's plan to bring my dear Watson and I together again, because I think with him by my side I might actually become something close to the person I'd like to be.  I live with the most Christ-like person I've ever met, and I hope to be able to equal him in greatness. I mean, I think even if a person searched and searched, they would never be able to find something mean to say about my dear Watson. He is just good.

I guess what I'm trying to say is: my husband's better than your husband :).

Anyway, I made a Valentine decoration out of candy canes! Ha! Isn't that funny? I just glued them right on to some white paper and cut it down to fit this frame. Then I hot glued some ribbon on the frame (actually that was already done from a previous project), I pushed some pins in the wall (because we don't have nails), and I hung them up!.  How's that for a tutorial?  Even though there is an earthquake in our house 4 or 5 times a day (from our construction neighbors) the pins have held their own - my candy cane heart frames haven't fallen off yet!  Happy Valentines Day!

Ugh, I'm too lazy to rotate this then re-upload it. This is why I'll never have a famous blog - famous bloggers would never post an un-rotated picture. That's the ONLY reason :).
 I put a chocolate kiss on it so you could get an idea of how GIANT my  heart shaped box of chocolates is! 


  1. I think the candy cane hearts are ca-yute! You might have a good husband, but he's not better than mine.

    I want one of the chocolates inside that box.

  2. I'm so glad you have a good husband Abby!

  3. I want to know if there are any chocolates left??? I think your candy cane frames are adorable. Have you been tempted to eat them?

  4. That is A LOT of choco-yum-ness. Love the hearts in your frames...where did you find candy canes?? Do you mean to tell me you have self control to hold out from Christmas?

  5. I'm with Hannah on this one; your husband is definitely not better than mine. I dare you to try to find something bad to say about him. You never will.

    Oh, and I tried to think of something bad to say about Kameroos since you dared me to . . . I couldn't. :)


Thanks for visiting! Leave me a message...I love them.
