An Award and Valentines....

I have kind-of been out of the loop for the past couple of days helping my mom, so imagine my (happy) surprise when I logged in this afternoon to find that I had been given an award!!

My new friend, Kathy at Emptynester, has honored me with the
Butterfly Award.

I have just recently discovered Kathy and her blog and I just love it! Kathy and her husband have just recently become "Empty Nesters" since their daughter, Cait, (LOVE that name, BTW) started college. Her blog will make you laugh and tug at your heartstrings, so stop on by and have a looksie!!

The rules of this award are:
1) Accept the award and post it on your blog along with the name of the person who gave it to you as well as a link back to their blog.
2) Pass the award on to 5 blogs worthy of the award.
3) Be sure to notify the recipient that you have left them an award!

So, hmmmmmm, let me think...... I will forward this award to:

1. Marla at Always Nesting Her recent "Menopause" rants have me rolling in the floor laughing!

2. KD at Southern Whimsy Such talent....I want HER to come and decorate my house....PLEASE!!

3. Kori at This is the Life of the Bates Family The video of her daughter torturing playing with her little brother is hilarious!!

4. Lauren at The Ames Family Her photography is incredible, and her stories are hilarious!

5. Tracie at Tale of Many Cities Her inspirational, and funny blog is a must well as audio clips of her incredibly talented daughter!

Barb @Grits and Glamour gets an honorable mention... but since she is off reuniting with her son and daugher-in-law this week (yeahhhhhh!!!), she is off the hook! ;)

Kathy, THANK YOU for being so sweet! I'm sure we will quickly become great blog buddies!!

Now to the second part of my post....VALENTINE'S CARDS!

Valentine's Day is just one, short week away, and I was looking for cheap cute and unusual Valentine's Day Cards for my kids to pass out to their bratty sweet, adorable school friends. This is what I ended up with....

Aren't these just the CUTEST THINGS EVER?
I actually found these at Wal-Mart and they were super afordable! Jameson and Chelsea thought they were so cute! Now I just have to figure out what to put with them. I think I will just attach the cards to a box of matching candy hearts. Anybody else have any ideas?

On the other hand, I am having a difficult time figuring out what card I want to send. Here are my options...

So, which one do you think?


  1. Oh, that's so sweet. I'm honored to be a recipient of the Butterfly Award.

  2. Thank you Robin for the award! Love the pictures of your babies...Ok, those cards...CRACK ME UP!!! Who are you sending them to?Either one would be a great pick.

  3. The cards from your kids are adorable. The "adult" cards - you are a scream! I would have to go with the candle one, my DH should own stock in Prilosec, we'd be rich lol. Kathy

  4. thanks so much for the award! so glad i am able to make you laugh, as a just reward for keeping me in stitches!! :D

    kids cards are great.. adorable. but the adult cards had me rollin'..!!

  5. You are too sweet! Thank you for the award!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my blog! It really means a lot to me!!
