Random Updates & Valentine's Day Favorites

All of the Starbucks e-cards have been sent. If you are one of the 20 winnners, please check your spam mail. I noticed there a couple still unopened. Happy Starbucking!

Hey Friends :)

Happy Weekend to you! I hope you've had a great week! I spent most of the week tending to my sick little guy Benj.

In case you're wondering, "Wasn't he sick last week?" Yes.

And two weeks ago? Yes.

Benj has missed 14 days of schools this year. Ugh. He had strep, an ear infection, and now has pneumonia-like symptoms. Will you please keep him in your prayers?


Thankfully my time with Benj has helped restore my weary soul.

Nothing like snuggling and reading Truth while he watches ESPN Sports Center...again. Maybe I needed an excuse to stay in my jammies for 3 days? God knows what He's doing ~ even in the midst of our
detours.

Also, please know I'm grateful for your kind words and prayers while I was in my "funk". Thankfully I feel like "I'm back". Woo Hoo!

Now that I'm feeling good ~ it's time for me to get my party on! I'm glad Valentine's Day is right around the corner.


Here are some fun Valentine's Day ideas...

* A sneak peek into what our family will be doing
