Be Mine, Valentine

If you know me well, you probably know that I’m not a fan of Valentine’s Day. Honestly, I think it’s kind of stupid. Gasp. Blake and I don’t make it a big deal and I have never really gotten into it. Until now. Since having Lillian, I have turned into someone I do not recognize. So here I am… getting into Valentine’s Day. Kind of.

I didn’t get crazy but I did do two things to celebrate the holiday. Who am I?

1. I made some festive Valentine’s Day cupcakes (two weeks ago).

2. I sent out Valentine’s from Lillian. We did an at home photo shoot and created a card to send out to immediate family and some of her boyfriends. Lilly is usually the perfect little model. All I have to do is put a camera in front of her and say ‘cheeeeeese’ and she gives me a big gummy grin. Well, not for this. It was a hot mess. I tried to get a picture of her sitting up and smiling. That didn’t work. She kept trying to crawl away. Damn you, newfound crawling skill!

Here’s basically how it went down.

I did manage to get one or two good shots. This is what the front of the card looked like.


I hope everyone has a lovely Valentine’s Day! Tonight Blake and I will be celebrating by doing nothing and not mentioning it to one another. ;)

Lot’s of love,

    Haha this is sooo me! I think even wrote a very similar post a couple of days ago. For some reason this year I got so into it with Riggs! My husband and I never really do anything, we’re just not into it! But I did buy myself my favorite chocolates ‘from’ him ;)

    Love her Valentine card, so cute!

    Happy Valentines Day, (2 days late) We just got back from Daytona Beach, Fl. were there for a “clock & watch show”. We were gone 6 days, had lousy weather. Guess Lillian doesn’t like Valentines Day either, still cute pictures. But I wanted to see the cupcakes, see how creative you were. Thanks. Love Georgia

      Georgia, I wasn’t too creative when it came to the cupcakes. Just pink frosting and some red, white, and pink sprinkles. That’s too bad that the weather was not nice for you guys in FL. We are headed to Orlando in a couple weeks. I hope it’s not raining the entire time!
