Love is in the Air

Hello lovelies!  I'm finally back at work and boy does it feel good!  I thought I had to work Monday but then my boss informed me that we are closed for the holiday.  I was actually a little bummed because I'm still suffering from cabin fever.  But it will be nice to have an extra day with the Mr.

Does anyone have anything big and fabulous planned for Valentine's Day with their sweet someone?!?!

Personally I'm hoping for a low-key day w. the hubs.  I wanted to do brunch after church at one of my favorite brunch spots but the Mr. turned me down because he already made reservations somewhere.  If you're in the DC area and looking for an A-mazing brunch you must check out Harry's Tap Room.  They have a few locations and the french toast is to. die. for. 
Eat some for me, please!!

Have I mentioned how much I hate suprises?!?! I think it comes with my Type A-need to be in control personality.  I just can't stand them.  And the hubs know this, so he always makes sure to capitalize on this to drive me crazy.  The only thing he told me for Sunday was he has a reservation somewhere and church.  Everything else will remain a surprise (blah!!).

Tomorrow I'm kicking off Valentine's Day a little early by participating in Pretty and Polished.  It's a group of girls that get together through my church and visit area nursing homes and assisted living residences and give the sweet little ladies manicures.  I'm really looking forward to it and I hope I can bring some love and cheeriness to their day.  It makes me think about the sweet nurses that cared for my papa when he was in the Veteran's nursing home.  They were so sweet to just take a few extra minutes to humor him by listening to one of his jokes, sing w. him and probably, on occasion, grumble about something.   Those little moments of caring, listening and sharing can really go a long way and truly brighten someone's day.  And I know it brought a smile to his face.  I hope I can share some love and do the same. 

Here are a few of my favorite pink things.

We will definintely take a stroll here on Sunday for one of my favorites!

I hope all of you lovelies have a fabulous Valentine's day spent with someone special that makes you laugh and smile! I'm so blessed and lucky, thank you for tagging along with me on this crazy little blog.
Tickled Pink!

For all of you DC ladies - the Fornash (Alexandria) warehouse sale has been rescheduled for tomorrow from 9am to 3pm. The Annapolis sale will be next weekend. Happy Shopping!


  1. You are VERY lucky to have a hubs who not only likes to surprise you, but also plans ahead!!! Mine is the opposite, which is why I went out and bought my own gift today. But it's okay b/c I spent more than he would have. ;)
