Last Minute Valentine's

This year we're kind of forgetting Valentine's day. I mean, not completely but we don't have any special plans. I'm on a diet so that means no going out to eat or drink and we really just don't feel up to going to the movies. So it will just be a nice evening at home. And that's fine by me!
Knowing that my husband doesn't really want anything I still decided I need to get him a little something. Last year I got a deck of cards and wrote a reason why I loved him on each one. 52 reasons, except, as he quickly pointed out, I repeated one once so he teases me that I only love him for 51 reasons...
I figured I'd resort to some of those coupons every one has head of, seen, bought and/or made. A quick Google search revealed plenty of pre-made, printable coupons. Some cute and some, well, not so much. I was being picky. I knew I could pretty easily hop on PhotoShop and whip up some of my own but I was also being lazy.
Finally I came across these adorable coupons from Mommy by day, crafter by night. I used the blank ones and converted them to jpegs so that I could open them up on sumopaint to add my own personalized coupons. You could also just print them off blank and hand write them on.
Here's the finished product:
All I had to do was add words, print, cut and staple!
Something I knew he'd appreciate :)

Literally shaking with frustration right now...

Here's a blurb I posted on my facebook that pretty much covers it....

With the amazing news coming out of California today, I'm also quite saddened. That sadness stems from so many of my friends, family, neighbors and acquaintances who are so furious that freedom of marriage has finally been granted to a group of citizens who are in no way less American or deserving of the freedoms that entails. What really saddens me is that so many are hiding the bigotry behind God. The god I was raised to believe in (as a Mormon) was a kind, loving, Father in heaven. The god I believed in would be so much more saddened by the hatred and anger in the hearts of so many of his children directed towards their "brothers and sisters" than he could possibly be with 2 men who are in love and just want to promise themselves to each other for the rest of their lives. After all, wasn't it Christ himself, in the bible, who defended Mary, the adulterer, saying "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone." Who here on this vast planet can say they're perfect? Who can say they have the right to be our judge?

Sorry for the neglect but this has kinda been occupying my entire life at the moment.

Disneyland Recap!

So, despite all my great intentions, I ended up napping instead of making shirts for the kids or mouse ears for anyone. That's ok though, We all still had a blast!
My nephew was easily the cutest thing in the park, especially once he got his ears!
All ready to go!
