Happy Valentine’s Day!

posted in: Creativity, Family | 2

My husband was laid off a couple weeks ago so the budget is too tight to really go out on the town for our first Valentine’s Day as a married couple. We’ve been together for over 7 years now though so we’ve had our share of fabulous holidays and I am not too worried about this one anyway. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Instead, we got each other some World of Warcraft pressies (rare battle pet drops) and sugar free candy since we are both low carbing lol… I loved it. I’ve got a Skunky Alemental and he got a Voodoo Figurine (he won’t do Archaeology but I do! ha). :love:

My eldest girl came by with more sugar free candy for us (haha) and we spent a good part of the day chatting with her about all her plans for when her husband is finished AIT and they are shipped away from us. ๐Ÿ™

After she headed out, the DH took a much needed nap and I sat down in my art studio (which is also the arcade and entertainment center and computer lab a.k.a. “the living room”) and I did some art journaling. :artsy:

As I was organizing things I found these little foam skulls I bought God-knows-when and decided I would feed the inner cynic with a little anti-romanticism:


I am counting that face above as my #29faces face #9.


I hope you have had a great Valentine’s Day, or whatever day if you don’t celebrate ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s just not in me to abstain from a holiday, however commercial, that means presents and chocolate lol..

Time for me to go make some supper. Mmmm mmmm I’m hungry! Have a great one!
