Good evening my Dear Friends;  I hope you all are having a very wonderful weekend. The Sun came out today for a bit, I almost cried.....  lol  This coming week is supposed to be lots better weather wise, still going to be cold but not as cold as it has been. I am so happy about that, tomorrow I am going to break out of my home, shhhhhh  don't let any one know.  This time I know I can escape out into the wide open spaces...  YEA!!!!  I am going to be FREE    FREE for a  day at least.   Can you tell I have been cooped up all week..........   Sorry but my brain just goes off to it's own little world, and my body just flows with it..  So tomorrow my Sweet Sister and I are going to go the  MALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I am so excited about that  I know it is the little things in life. lol

Ok ladies I am trying to think of something really Romantic for Valentines Day for my Valentine.  I can feel the Romance floating in the air, and in every thing I have been reading.  Now if you ask  ten different people they will have a wide version of what Romance is to them. That is what is so great, so many ideas to glean from.


So I am on a mission to find the perfect Valentines Day, for my Sweet Heart. I will be doing lots of surfing lots of reading, then I will check out some great cook books,  and thennnnnnn   call for take out..... lol   kidding;  I think he can take me out, and let some one else do the cooking and washing of dishes. That way I will not be tired later on..... [blushing]    I never know what to get him, he is very hard to buy for.  Me I am easy just let me in a Shoe store and let me go, I have  whole other relationship with shoes. I can't help my self,  now  poor hubby can't seem to understand why I need to have more then one pair of Black Shoes... How silly of him.    Yes ladies I have lots of shoes and I do wear them all, at least I try to...... he he   Now  while I am out tomorrow I am going to be on the look out for a killer dress to wear, it will be either Black or Red,  so I am going to take my camera and do some snapping to do a post on. I hope I don't get kicked out of some of the stores  so if you don't see a new post for awhile you know what happened,  and if it does Please send me a cake with a file in it....


Well my day was not very exciting, I did get a lot of laundry done, all my quilts and sheets the slip cover on my sofa.   The other day I did receive my Vintage Valentine box in the mail, now sure if I told you all before, if I did,  well you are going to hear about it again,,, sorry,    I am going to do a post on it all next week, some time. I have had a fun time putting together my box for my partner which I am  putting in the drop box tomorrow, which won't go out until Tuesday, so it will  get to her some time in the week. I want to wait till she receives her's.  AWWWWW  how sweet am I......  to wait.  I can't wait to show off all the beautiful  eye candy she sent me.   Ok I guess that is it for now, I have to do some visiting before bed.

I want to Thank You all for the sweet and some funny comments, and taking the time to visit.  So until next time dear friends, have a great night.  God Bless;

Im sure you will find the most perfect gift for your sweetie. I havent even thought about it. One year I cooked a very romantic dinner, it was snowing outside, so I turned on the hot tub for later and popped open a bottle of bubbly. It was memorable with the snow falling on us in the hot tub.

Isn't it funny how we all want what we don't have. Here in CA it's been so warm. In the 80's and next week we are going to get some nice cool weather coming. So I'm looking for some rain. Here you are wanting the sun to come. LOL

Have fun shopping. I'm sure you will find the perfect thing to buy.

Morning Alaura! Hope you find that cute dress today!!! I guess I've been married too long because I haven't even thought about valentines day! Shame on me!!!lol My hubby is also impossible to buy for; it stresses me out all the time trying to find the perfect gift for him. Even if you don't find anything today I'm glad you get out of the house!!! I know the cooped up feeling!lol Have fun and good luck - Sincerely, Jeannette

My favorite take out dinner is when I get taken out!!! Sounds like you've got a lot planned that may keep you out of mischief, but just in case, don't forget some change for your one phone call!!! LOL Debbie

Evening, Dear Alaura! Have a great time at the mall! I know how it feels to be a little trapped at home. I'm kinda in the same boat. Although, it was nice to get out of Dodge with Mr. Precious for the run. Yes, Dear One, you can say he has hot legs! ;)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)
