Happy Valentines Day and a DIY Project

I hope you are having an AMAZING Valentine's day and surrounding yourself with people of which you love.

For the first time in 5 years J and I really don't have much planned for tonight [heck-i haven't even bought his gift... shh - ha!] but I'm sure we will come up with something :) Typically we go out to a nice dinner on a day other than valentines day or the weekend of valentines day, and then on february 14th we typically get Chipotle since that is where we met [if your new to the blog or have nothing better to read, your more than welcome to read that story here]

Do you have any traditions for today?

**DIY**

Justin and I watched Molly a few weeks ago and I decided to make a valentines day gift for Jason and Katie from Molly.

I bought the letters from Hobby Lobby and painted them white, and i found the glittery heart at Hob Lob as well.

Here are the best pictures I was able to get with a 13 month old and a slow shutter speed camera
- regardless Molly is adorable!
I put the pictures in a frame [next time I will practice taking pictures of pictures]
Here are the outtakes from our photo shoots- Some of these are really funny, who would have known that holding a large wooden letter and a glittery heart would be such a challenge - ha!
I plan on doing this every year with Molly, however next year I will have her little brother Dom [due to arrive in late April/early May] hold the U and then they can attempt/try to hold the heart together. I think this will be a fun project that I will look forward to making year after year with the kids!

I will have my weekend/vacation wrap up on Tuesday! We spent the entire weekend in New York, at Holiday Valley skiing/snowboarding. As of Sunday our family was on the home page of the Holiday Valley website, we are in the subset picture. Come back to read the recap :)

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day and you are with people you love!

Thanks again for the AMAZING gift!! I can't say it enough...that little girl is so lucky to have a Godmother like you!

I love the out takes. I can't believe you got such a good "U" for the frame...considering all the other "U" pictures she looks grumpy! She looks mesmerised by the glittery heart though.

I'm looking forward to the recap of your trip..injuries included I'd imagine! ;)
