Valentine’s Day Wrap Up

February 15th, 2012

Happy Belated Valentine’s Everyone!

We had a great Valentine’s Day at the vB household.

vanny made some fun valentine’s for his school friends…

Super-pops courtesy of pinterest and zakkalife.  They were a hit!

We also made everyone heart shaped rice krispee treats!

And for the grandparents we made “hugs”

The hands were originally suppose to painted hand-prints, but vanny was not cooperative with that, so we went with cut outs instead.  A little bakers twine taped to the back of both and viola- a hug!

So after a full day of celebrating- vannyB came down with a fever.  102.9 to be exact.  He was well enough to eat one of his rice krispee treats- but then it was straight to bed!

We headed to the Pediatrician this morning ironically for his 15 month well visit and am happy to report no flu or strep.  But he continued with the high fever all day.

Hopefully tomorrow my little poodle will feel better!  I love the extra snuggles but I know he just doesn’t feel good.

Why you should label paint cans

February 6th, 2012

Exhibit A

In my haste Friday night, I grabbed a paint can that I “was sure” was the kitchen wall color.  It wasn’t labeled but looked pretty darn close to the same color.

Guess what- it wasn’t.


Thankfully it was only one wall.  And now both paint cans are properly labeled. {Kitchen Walls and Not Kitchen Walls aka Bathroom}

I’m also happy to report that we fixed our “little tile issue” in the pantry room (more on that later), and got the floor grouted.

We are also training van to drink out of the dog bowls.. it will cut down on washing dishes…

I kid, I kid.  He totally took it upon himself, no training needed.

Happy Monday!

Shoe of the Month- February

February 1st, 2012

I spotted these cuties on Pinterest today..

but I just can’t decide what color I like best!

Toms Ballet Flats- Eliana Blue Suede, Katia Chambray and Eliana Pink Suede.. $79 Each

Don’t forget that with every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need.

That almost makes me think I need to get all 3 pairs!
