Today I decided to upload our pictures onto the computer from the camera. I realize that I only blog about things that I have pictures for...and I am so bad at remembering to take our camera everywhere, hence the very few blog posts. So my new goal is to take more pictures!

Valentines Day:
We both had school starting at 8:00 a.m. on Valentines Day and pretty much had school all day. So I decided I wanted to so something early. On Valentines morning, I got up at 5:30 a.m....I know, crazy especially for me! I hurried and showered and got all ready and then made him a candle light french toast breakfast. I even brought out our "margarita glasses" for the chocolate milk. Since he was still sound asleep in bed, I made a trail of Hershey kisses from the bedroom leading out to the kitchen table that had his breakfast, presents, and candle light breakfast all ready! And we both made it to class on time! Pretty sure I won't be getting up that early again anytime soon...

Braden picked me up from school around 4:00 p.m. and we headed home. When I stepped inside there was this waiting for me:

There was a dozen roses on the table with all the candles lit and one of my favorite country songs playing in the background. On the table there was also an envelope that said "Valenclue #1" on it. Basically there were clues to what we would be doing next on each clue. We went to dinner at Olive Garden, went hottubing at his parents, and even rode Zuma, our scooter, in the freezing cold snow. It was pretty fun!

On the way to Olive Garden:

Around the end of February my Mom came out to visit all of us. She stayed at our apartment. While she was here she helped us make a headboard for our bed that I have been wanting to make for awhile.

My Handy Man:

The easiest part was actually putting all of the wood together. Putting the fabric and batting on the wood was not the fun part. I hate staple guns now. My hand had a bruise on it the next day from using it. Pretty sure there are hundreds of staples in that thing! I havent taken any pictures of the finished headboard yet, but i will soon.

Who knows what we are doing here...
