Now, Joel and I aren't real sappy about commercial holidays. Valentine's Day will probably get noticed with a nice dinner at our local "fancy" restaraunt sometime in February (or we may wait until March and call it an anniversary dinner). But, honestly, we are pretty good about dating all year. Hallmark probably won't be getting any of our money.
Well, this year, Kristen at We Are THAT Family is hosting a Valentine's carnival. Here is a snippet from her blog:
The days leading up to Valentine's Day (Feb. 11-13), I will be having a little S.W.A.K. carnival. I want you to link up a post honoring your hubby anytime during those three days. It can be how you met, your first kiss, what you're doing to celebrate Valentine's Day, or about your own personal Kiss Challenge.

Hope to see you there to show our hubbies some love!

I hung a shelf thing over the door to hold all the cleaning supplies, I hung a cheap paper towel holder in the closet so I don't have to lug the whole roll around, and I hung the green bucket that I use for rinse water and such.
See my new Cadillac Joel got me for Christmas?!

My John Deere dresser is still in the works. It has been too cold for me to get out there.
Here is our one picture from our trip to Savannah.
I took it myself. We looked bad because the weather was bad. We did, despite the cold rain, have a great time! We got to eat at Lady and Sons (Paula Deen's restaraunt), and we ate lots of good seafood and looked in lots of antique stores. We took a trolley tour and heard some of the stories of the ghosts that supposedly haunt Savannah.

And, this is a picture of my new sign I bought from Susie over at Bienvenue (you can get to her blog on my sidebar).

I have been cleaning like a mad woman, so I can enjoy the busyness that is on the horizon. I start tonight with a WOM (Women On Missions) meeting. Our group has a couple of things coming up, so we are starting the year with a bang. Thursday, a friend and I are going to start gathering gifts for our ladies retreat that is coming up at the end of this month. Saturday my stepmom is taking me and my two stepsisters to see the Mama Mia broadway type show. Sunday we travel three hours to and three hours back to celebrate my niece's first birthday. Then, on Monday, my sweet husband and I are headed to Savannah for a two night get away!!
So, I am getting my house clean for my mother in law who is staying here with the girls, and making sure we have enough laundry to get us through next week.
I am going to try to take some pictures of some of my most-loved Christmas presents to show you later :)
