Eeeeeeeeek!

Ok, so I don't do well with change. I've got to be honest. This new blog template is freaking me out. :) But in honor of the upcoming Valentine's Day celebration, we'll give it a go for a bit. Hope everyone is getting ready for the love fest! :) To be honest, I've never been a huge fan of the holiday, and it's not because I'm bitter, or because Brian's a butthead--I'm not, and he's not. :) I just don't like the fact that everyone is walking around with these huge expectations of romance and giddiness, receiving gifts not necessarily because their lovey-dove wants to give them, but because if they don't they're toast--who or what can live up to that? :) (Pretty cynical sounding considering I'm a hopeless romantic...) ANYWAY, I do like certain parts of the holiday, like the candy...and the candy...and did I mention the candy? I also love ringing the doorbell, leaving a Valentine and running as fast as I can to a waiting car. The past few years me and my mom have delivered little Valentine stuffed animals to all the little kids in the ward. Sooooooo fun. Perhaps me and Brian will try some version of that...hmmmm. ANYWAY, the point is, get ready for Valentines everybody! And congratulations to Brian's brother Allen and his fiance Rachel...they'll be tying the knot on heart day, and we're excited!

I think I miss the Christmas background...but maybe because I miss Christmas already. So long till it comes around again...and I am right there with you about being cynical about the upcoming little holiday...who needs love anyhow right? just kidding...I am sure some day I'll love the holiday again...till then I'll enjoy dressing my children up in clothing that says I Love Mommy. I had wanted to send ya'll a christmas card but didn't have you address. So you can either leave it on a comment or you can email it to me.
