what's not to love, its friday!!

happy friday y'all! I am so happy the weekend is here even though we had a little staycation indoors courtesy of snowmageddon 2010! I didn't scrap at all but happy to say my laundry is done and house is clean....yay!!! We are getting out of dodge tonight and heading south to nana's for the holiday weekend where a lot less snow is on the ground. We are expected to get more snow on Monday, hopefully we won't get caught up in it; but for our sanity we need to get out of our house, lol.

I finally did last week's dare: first kiss, crush or boyfriend. It was so long ago, the details were a little fuzzy but my first crush/"boyfriend" was in 1st/2nd grade. He was a cutie and we used to wirte little notes all the time until he realized girls were yucky again, lol.  I painted and misted until my heart was content. :)

dare 157....first crush

Another item on my craft to do list was to create my next entry in my book of list mini. For this list page Jamaica's prompt centered around I don't get....
I promise I am not a hater but I do not make a big fuss over valentine's day. I truly believe in showing and telling the people in my life how much I love them everyday not just for one day in Feb. It is romantic and it is easy to get caught up in the frenzy of it all.  But for me I choose love everyday and explained this message to Saadiq and Synai yesterday. I was happy they understood it even at the age they are now.
book of list...don't get

But if this is your favorite holiday I hope you have a truly special one with the one you love or if you are solo, do something fun...remember it and enjoy it!
happy weekend!

  3. I love LOVE, but Valentine's day is not a Holiday we make a HUGE deal out of...we give them a little thing of candy and they are happy. I believe in showing the people you love everday too! Love, Jess
    But I do love the hearts and colors of valentine's!!!:)
