Happy VD

14 Feb

When I was in college, I earned my beer tuition money by working at a grocery store. While there, I had a brief stint helping out in the floral shop during Valentine’s Day. When we would write-up customers’ orders, we would abbreviate “Happy Valentine’s Day” with “Happy VD.” Then my boss started calling it “Happy Venereal Disease Day.” For some reason, this memory always pops into my head on Valentine’s Day. 🙂

I got some Valentine’s flowers from my sweetie at work today. 😀

(Please excuse the mess of papers on my desk in the background. I have a bit of a hoarding problem.) Hopefully my lilies will be open when I get to work tomorrow.

Cy had a fun V-Day at daycare today. Check out these valentines they sent home with him. So cute!

(Sorry about my tragic looking nail polish. I put this super sparkly nail polish on and now it is a total bitch to get off!)

Sadie, on the other hand, is her own valentine. She’s single and loving it. 😉 Or maybe food is her valentine. She does seem to have a long-standing love affair with food. Here she is giving me her best “I’m super cute and sweet, don’t you want to give me some food?” look.



How are you celebrating VD?
Valentine’s Day, that is. 😉 As for me, I have a date with this little book I ordered on Amazon that came in the mail today.

Oregon vacay, here I come!

Accomplished!

12 Feb

I feel like I was super accomplished this weekend. Yesterday, I started the day by doing some work outside, cleaning up our patio.

Cy helped me. 😉

Later in the day, we look the kids to the park. We all had a lot of fun at the park. We went to a park that we’ve been to before, but haven’t been to in a while, so it was something new for the kids, plus it has nice walking trails for mom and dad. Sadie seemed really excited to be there – more so than she is at some other parks. We started calling her “Fun Sadie” because she almost seemed giddy there. She was running and playing like when she was a young pup. To be honest, sometimes she is miserable to take to the park because she would rather stand in one spot and eat rabbit turds all day than go on a walk, but this time she had a little more pep in her step. 🙂 Cy had fun too because we let him off leash when there was no one around. He was running around like a mad man and had a total blast.

It’s too bad Sadie can’t go off leash also, but her recall (aka listening) skills are not the best. Cy, on the other hand, comes when called, even with distractions. This is mostly our fault for not giving Sadie as much training as we have given Cy, but the girl does have an extremely stubborn streak that seems to be inherent and nothing to do with training.

We went back to the same park again today and Cy had fun chasing a tennis ball and Sadie had fun stealing and hiding the ball from her brother. 😉

Yesterday, I also did step one for my DIY art project for our dining room.

Yes, I know it is “safety cone orange” and that’s just how I like it! 😉 This place needs a pop of color!

The hubby and I just got back from an early Valentine’s dinner at Cucina Enoteca. Love that place! And love my sweetie. 😀
