Valentine's Day is Coming!



What are you doing for Valentine's Day? Many people say this is a "Hallmark" holiday or just another reason to spend money. I personally like Valentine's Day and always have! As a child growing up, my parents always made Valentine's Day special. Plus I just LOVED decorating shoe boxes at school to exchange cards. Now as an adult, I still enjoy Valentine's Day. It is an excuse to spend some extra special time with that extra special person in your life! Of course, I am carrying on my family tradition of making Valentine's Day special for my kids as well:) They will each receive a special treat. My plans for Valentines Day:

♥ Go to a spa for a European facial! (I received a gift certificate from my honey on Christmas - and what a great day to take advantage of it!)

♥Spend time together as a family

♥After 9 when the twins' go to bed - Zach can watch a movie in our room while Scott and I are eating Chinese take-out and watching the movie FIREPROOF!

I can not wait! I am saving that movie for Valentine's Day. It is so hard for me to do. They have been showing the commercial on tv.. and I hear how amazing it is from many people who have seen it. I have felt weak and wanted to rent it - but stopped myself to save it for Valentine's Day.

Only 11 more days. I can do this!

Hello everyone!

Oh my gosh, how scary is it that Valentine's Day has come around again so quickly! Please, please, please make sure you sort out your plans in advance, otherwise there will be a mad dash to get everything sorted.
Oh yes, it is that time of year again! Valentine's Day is coming up fast! Not sure how everyone else feels about February 14th, but I always seem to get really stressed out! I always send my friends a Valentine's Day text message, just to say hi! However I find a text message a bit dull, but I have found a different way to send a greeting which has a much more vibrant, and upbeat feel about it! My friend Lizzy first introduced me to the world of electronic greetings about a year ago when she went back packing around Australia. She said she found it hard to write letters, and she didn't always have a mobile phone signal! So whenever she had the chance she would go into an internet cafe and send an e-Card. This method is such a great way to keep in touch with friends, and family. With Valentine's Day coming up I think it is a good way to just send a little surprise greeting. I have done my research, and tried out loads of different sites, but I have now finally found the best Free Romance e-Card site for me. This site has both romantic, and funny, light hearted Valentine's Day e-Cards, so there is a card to suit everyone! E-Cards are not for everyone, but I think they are definitely worth a try! Just wanted to share my thoughts and findings with you all!Hope you all find this useful! Warm wishes, Nicole.

Seriously I think Chinese take out is such an amazing part of so many romantic times with me and my hubby! =]

Enjoy Fireproof, can't wait to hear your review on it! We just watched it this week and really liked it, it put a lot of things in perspective!

Happy early Valentine's Day!
