Valentine's Day & More

By Holly - 2/16/2008 08:06:00 AM

Well I took the day off from work on Valentine's day, to take some hard earned R&R. In the morning, I got up and made Orange rolls for Ryan before he left for school. I attempted to sculpt them into hearts, but they baked out of shape. Here is that result.
Then while he went to school, I went to the spa for a manicure/pedicure. "Good Morning Sacramento" was there doing a live shot for Valentine's day, so I got to watch the whole thing from like 3 feet away. Here is a picture of my very red toes.
Then I got my hair cut and did a little shopping. When Ryan got home from school he brought in the cutest card inside this.
If you haven't read this book, you should. It's always been one of my favorites, and I'm glad Ryan gave it to me to add to the growing pile for the baby. I was read to a lot as a child and as I've told Ryan many a time, I want to make sure I have lots of books for my kids to read. On that note, after we had lunch, we went to the new thrift store right by our apartment. We ended up getting more books, both for the baby and Ryan. Then off to Leatherby's for some ice cream. Then Ryan drove me out to Rocklin, to visit my favorite scrapbook store and pick up some goodies.
Out of all the things I got, this has to be my favorite. I took a picture of it next to my pen, so you could see just how big they really are.
Giant paperclips! Now I really have no idea what project I'm going to use them for, but they were just too fun, not to get!
After the scrapbook store we went over to Fry's and got Ryan a new video game.
That was the first valentine's day we actually spent together, since we've been together. It was wonderful.

Ryan is up in Redding this weekend working, so I took advantage of my time alone and created some new things for the baby's room.
These are some picture frames that I used to have in my college apartment. I revamped them to coordinate with the baby's room.
I have already put these up, which I'm so happy about. The nursery is in such a transition phase, that it's nice to have something besides the crib in there for the baby. I'm also attempting to make curtains for the room. In a book I have, "Photo Decor" I saw this idea and thought it was too cute.

So in my attempt to copy it, I've made these to go on my curtains, once they are finished.
On the back of these, I added nursery rhymes, because I didn't like the idea of have a plain cardboard back.
I'm surprised by the name voting pole. I definitely thought Zoe would get more votes, considering that was our original choice. We haven't made any decisions and won't until she comes out. She is certainly more active. She has started bouncing or something inside me, it's an interesting feeling. I can tell she's getting bigger because I can feel her moving around a lot more than before.
I think all the little girls in our primary class have a crush on Ryan. They love to sit on his lap during singing time. At first, they were all scared of him, but now they love him. He's going to make a great daddy.

Well that's all for now.
