And just in time for Valentines Day!

There’s no way this girl was going to let TODAY go by without wishing you hugs & kisses & chocolate & champagne & anything else that makes you completely happy!

What ARE you doing today my Valentines?

Going for a spin with your sweetie?

Or perhaps something a bit more dramatic?

Maybe your putting on your pretties.


MR. would seriously love those X’s and O’s!

But good grief,  why on earth does Valentine’s Day have to be on a Tuesday?  And why on earth does it have to be 28 degrees outside?

{So miss my best friend Beck & I going for our traditional Valentines mani-pedi and lunch at Fashion Island.}

This is unfortunately the only RED this girl will be wearing today.

Oh, I’d much rather be wearing this…

over there.  Big sigh…


Without a doubt that will all be happening come summertime and I plan on packing as many BLOGGY friends in the

LOVE BUG as possible!

Until then – I’m sending X’s and O’s and asking you all to be mine!

Just to be thoughtful & in case you haven’t found the perfect card yet…

{MR. will tell you that The Hallmark at the Lansdowne Shops was completely picked over last night.}

I found these!  Maybe you know someone who could use them, ha!

Love this post!
I spent my day with 26 3rd graders that came to school on a sugar high and stayed there for 8 hours ... oh my!
Thankfully, my hubby treated me to dinner {made by him} and a delightful glass of wine!


Millie said...

Hope you & B had a loved up kinda Valentine's Lisa. Send that can of inspiration my way, as mine went AWOL around the time I took this shocker of a new job on!
