It’s Valentine’s day weekend y’all and for the love of all things Godiva, Starbucks, and Kendra Scott please get your sweetheart something special!
I remember my first Valentine’s day with T. We were 19 years old and had only been dating a couple of months. That boy was seriously obsessed with me…I mean who wouldn’t be right? I remember the first time he asked me out I was like “Well, if you want you can come to my house and watch a movie with me and my Mom”. I felt bad for him, he knew no one because he was a Texan in the middle of Arkansas…he was a foreigner for goodness sake.
Then when he did come over I made him watch “Romy & Michelle‘s Highschool Reunion”. I mean….he even pretended to feign interest. So, after that night we were pretty much attached. We talked for hours about so much random stuff.
Fast forward a couple of months later to our first Valentine’s day and I bought him a pillow with kisses all over it then I spelled out “I LOVE YOU” with glow in the dark stars on his dorm room wall. So, every time he turned off the lights he would see my profession of undying love right there in front of his face.
This picture was on film people…it’s amazing I still have a replica of college days including the pillow case with kisses. 16 years ago….seriously?
You know how much I loooooove my chocolate. Terence had gone home a couple of months earlier for Christmas and he brought me back a HUGE box of Godiva chocolates. Not Hershey’s, no ladies…. G-O-D-I-V-A. There wasn’t a store in the entire state of Arkansas that sold Godiva & it was gold…..GOLD I tell you! He had me at chocolate and ya know he may have said I love you back. 🙂
I remember our first Valentine’s day as a married couple. We had been married about 6 months and Terence was in the Air Force. We lived in our cute little base house straight out of 1972. All of the sudden T had to run to the “mall” to get something. Ahem….okay Captain Obvious. He came home with a pair of diamond earrings. I just about died. At a time when we didn’t have two nickels to rub together and he bought me earrings….
Now days it’s like…well I was thinking of getting you something, but I put money in our IRA instead. How romantic, you shouldn’t have.
Please never stop thinking it’s okay to let “It’s the thought that counts” be okay!!! NO NO NO!
I need to try too…it’s not all on men. I’m guilty (insert shame face).
Ladies, you need to work it honey.
Okay, so there’s my little Valentine’s tale of T+B = <3
I LOVE YOU TER-BER!!!
I don’t know what we are doing this year, but it usually involves take-out and a Redbox movie. Babysitters are so expensive…anyone wanna babysit??? *cough*
I can’t wait for girls night Friday and the cat claws that come out….literally.
Oh and this is pure greatness….the love chair in Branson, Missouri.
As long as we are walking down memory lane here….I can’t believe we have this beautiful boy. Sometimes I pinch myself. How did we get so lucky?

Watch out girls he’s coming for you!
ANSWER —-> Are we going to have anymore babies??? I get that a lot…and the answer is no, sometimes maybe…usually I don’t know. If it’s God’s plan. I have a good 50 pounds of FOOD baby to lose before that’s even a consideration. I’m about to be 35 and I think I am good. Yup.
I love photographing and smelling babies. So, if you ever want to hand yours over for a while let me know 😉
Anyway…I guess that’s all for today. What are y’all going to do for Valentine’s day?
