and I made a strawberry cake! strawberry = red/pink = valentine's day!
Josh did so good on my little valentine's gifts! Here's yet another example of how Pinterest is a wonderful thing. Ladies, if your friends and family don't know that you are on pinterest pinning away all these things that you think are lovely TELL THEM! The best thing I ever did was show Josh my pinterest boards. Christmas was great...and Valentine's as well :) He saw that I pinned some measuring cups from Anthropologie, so low and behold...that's what I got!
fun vase he got me (also from anthro)...
I LOVE it! it's the colors I am hoping to one do use in our kitchen...like a teal-y/turquoise-y blue and a bright orange-y red! so fun! I am continually rearranging our built-in's in the kitchen and think they make a great home on the shelves!
I was really excited about what I gave Josh...and hopefully it will start to be a tradition for many years. I had seen on a blog I read where they made "year books" for their family...just a place to keep all memories for one year in nice and orderly fashion. I think I've said how odd I think it is I'm not a very good scrapbooker...but I'm not. And now that I work with so many digital pictures and files all day, this seemed to be a really good fit. So, I headed over to My Publisher and went to work.
And here you have the final product. 100 pages of our first year of life together!
