Well, I hope your Valentine’s Day was as relaxing and just downright enjoyable as mine. Of course, there’s nothing quite like getting your husband back from a week-long absence to make any day sweeter, so I feel like I had an unfair advantage.

Plus, there was this love-fest going on:PicMonkey Collagegirls

I don’t know of much in the world that melts my heart faster than my girls getting loved on by their daddy. It’s a preview of heaven on earth, and I love that my girls (and boys) have such a tangible representation of their heavenly Father’s love in their own earthly daddy.

Plus, did I call it or what?

Here’s what I wore yesterday for OPERATION: Dress Your Love:

 4 month collage

I think I look totally ordinary.

But when I got up to refill my drink at lunch, I caught Shaun eyeing me, and when I gave him “the eyebrow,” he said, “You look really good today. I love those jeans.”

This is the eyebrow, by the way:



Two words, people: Mission accomplished.

And then, while we made that yummy dinner I talked about yesterday (when I told him we were repeating his birthday dinner, he said, “All right! I was hoping you would make that again!”), he pulled out the cd with 30 songs that he burned for my 30th birthday, and we listened to “I Won’t Give Up” (among other things), just like I predicted.

I’m practically clairvoyant, right? (Or at least know my husband reeeeeeeally well).

So, if you need your future told, come tell me a lot of about yourself, and give me a whole bunch of back-story and repeat circumstances, and I bet I can predict something that might happen again in your future.

Because I’m just that good.

ANYhoo, the only other thing that I can predict is that, if you haven’t had a chance to check out the twins’ nursery reveal that I did earlier this week, you’ll want to—if for no other reason than to ogle the awesome Amy Butler wallpaper I used for their accent wall.

Here’s the collage of details that I showed you on Monday to whet your appetite for more:

In other news, I’m afraid I didn’t get a chance to pick features with Shaun gone and room reveals and Valentine’s preparations…oh yeah, and a bit of this too:


That’s Sherwin Williams Really Teal, just in case you were wondering. And I am loving how it looks on the walls of our breakfast nook. Room reveal coming up in…13 months…at my current rate of room completion.

But, even without the features, I still love seeing what you come up with!

So, grab a button (or leave a text link-back):
