I Don't Need No Stinkin' Valentines

Let me just say, right up front, that Troy and I will never be celebrating Valentine's Day again. EVER.

However, we may decide in the future to celebrate the day after Valentine's Day, because I am not letting him off the hook that easily.

It all started innocently enough. We had a special date planned. We were having a good day, a good week, really. Things were going very well, and then we had a little tiff, which of course escalated into a big ol' fight.

So, in the end, Troy went on his special Valentine's Day date. He just went alone.

Oh well. This is so the story of our lives.

And now, a week in review.

44/365 (2/13) I {heart} Troy



We continued celebrating Troy's birthday, right on through the weekend. We had a really fun bunco party, and Troy got some really nice gifts. One of my favorites, and really, if you know Troy, you know he's nothing if not confident...so one of my favorite gifts had to be this I {heart} Troy shirt from the Ellsworth's. I mean really, if anyone could wear a shirt that says that they love themselves, it has to be Troy.

45/365 (2/14) Pump Up the Volume



Katie has this little toy that plays a bunch of different songs...you know, the kind that needs to mysteriously stop working. Well, she has taken to carrying it around the house, close to her ear, like an 80's style boom box. It's too funny.

46/365 (2/15) mmmmm.mmmm.good



Every year Troy always asks for the same thing for his birthday dinner, homemade Tony Roma's ribs. It's a big task to make this meal. The sauce takes an hour to make...then 2 1/2 hours to cook the ribs and another few minutes on the grill. Not to mention making the side dishes. Well, I have to say...it was totally worth it.

47/365 (2/16) At Last



Fourteen years of marriage, and Troy and I have never had a dining room table. I know it isn't really a necessity, but I have always wanted to have one. We have the opportunity to finally be able to buy one, and unfortunately for Troy, have spent several weekends searching for just the right one. Well, we finally found it. We bought the chairs somewhere else because the ones that went with the table were obscenely expensive...it comes on Friday. I can't wait!

48/365 View From the Top



I am working on a scrapbook project to scrap the every day things in our lives, and was given the assignment to photograph my favorite view from the house. Well, mostly, we just see other people's houses, but, when I get ready in the morning, I have the opportunity to watch the sunrise, and I love it. My own view from the top.

49/365 I Want Candy



It's funny. The younger kids have not started speaking as early, or as much as the older kids...but of course, they all catch up eventually. Until they do, however, I miss their being able to be verbal. So, while Katie's vocabulary may be limited, she has finally mastered her first sentence. "I want candy." **big sigh** Like father, like daughter.

Love reading about your large and (mainly) loving family, Denise! I'm with you on the Valentines Day issue. Great photos, by the way, what happened on day 47, LOL??

Denise said...

LOL! Nothing,except that I picked a difficult numbering system that makes me crazy trying to keep straight!

Emily Merchant said...

Can't wait to see the dining room set. The picture you posted was tantilizing -- if it is really the chairs you chose...

Denise said...

Those are the ACTUAL chairs we bought.

LOVE reading about your life. Hope your tiff is over. I hate when DH & I have fights. Thanks for being so honest about your life. Can't wait to see the table! I already love the chairs!

I'm glad to hear we're not the only couple who can turn V-day into a stressful day.

Being in the market for a dining room table ourselves, I'm looking forward to seeing what you ended up with.

Roger and I don't like celebrating Valentine's day, we tend to go a day early or later. This year we made an exception and went with some friends. It was a lot of fun!! Looking forward to seeing your table. Love the chair so far!!

Jen said...

I agree with Emily. I can't wait to see your dining room set!

Sorry to hear about your Valentines day.

I think little Katie and I are kindred spirits. I always want candy too!

Ahh, Drew has almost gone on a few dates by himself lately.
Pregnancy isn't agreeing with him. :)
