Valentine's Day and some Scrappiness

I have been trying to squeeze a little bit of sanity into my life right now. We have tools and paint cans all over, and the kitchen cabinet doors are off ready to be painted. There may be boxes against most of the walls, and I may be trying to keep all the painting I've completed scratch and dent free, but darn it, I am still going to take some time to sit down and gaze at a magazine, or scrapbook. After all, I have physical therapist's orders to activity map* so my fibromyalgia doesn't flare up.
*Activity mapping is the concept of doing one or two very physical activities in a day, spreading out the most physically demanding things on your list over the week, instead of doing it all in one day and hurting to point of being useless for 3 days after.
So, this weekend I made these layouts with pictures from 2009 & 2010. I am LOVING scrapbooking right now.

We also had a nice mellow Valentine's Day. We spent about $15 on both kids. Ben got this $10 Lego set, (and two pairs of athletic shorts for spring/wrestling). He's obsessed with having the whole colllectors set of certain types of Legos. This is his 4th Egypt lego set, and he reminded me about 10 times since I gave him this, that he only needs to more sets to complete the collections. Note: the tooth is looser than ever, and still not coming out!!

I found this lap desk for Hunter for $7.50 at Target, along with a $.98 pair of Buzz Lightyear gloves and two pairs of athletic shorts for spring.


I made some Red Velvet cupcakes with homemade cream cheese frosting- it has become a V-day tradition here. So yummy!

And beautiful, I might add.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Thanks Jenn. That's why I was so excited... anything that looks like flowers makes me happy.
