We had a warm one over here in So Cal this year, which worked out in my favor, because I was planning on wearing somewhat of a Summer dress. lol. I had been counting down the days to Valentine’s Day, and now I can’t believe it’s already over! :( I know some people have a negative view towards this day, like “love should be expressed everyday, not just on Valentine’s Day.” But with how busy everyone gets as they get older, I think this day is important for a lot of people.
The night before, I had set my alarm for 8 am (ew, I know) so I could make Cody breakfast. And no, I didn’t actually MAKE those waffles, I just put Eggos in the toaster and used a heart cookie cutter. haha. But I did cut the strawberry hearts, which was not as simple as I thought it would be. And on the right are cranberry mimosas in mason jars!
Then in the afternoon, Cody had made an appointment for us to go to Color Me Mine!!! The last time I had gone was for my 9th Birthday, so I had been telling Cody for months that I wanted to go again. And I totally forgot how fun it was to paint. (When I was like 5 or 6, I used to say I wanted to be a painter lol.) Unfortunately, though, what we made won’t be ready until Tuesday, so I can’t show you our finished products until then. :(
Now on to the gifts:
To say Cody did good is an understatement. I have an obsession with Teddy Bears, like I actually sleep with one. I had also been wanting the life sized Teddy Bear, so the fact that it was here waiting for me today was the best thing ever. (You can find your Teddy here!)
