Got a lot accomplished today. Not sure that's how the Dr. would have wanted me to spend today, but that's how it went down. I always say it's amazing what I can get down when I have no interruptions.

I gathered up all the scarves, gloves/mittens and hats and put them in one of those rolling, 3-drawer stacking carts. I even broke out the label maker and labeled each drawer. I did a couple loads of laundry, emptied the dishwasher and loaded it back up again, put away the empty Valentine's Day decoration boxes, read and relaxed for a few minutes and now I have a big juicy steak on the grill for dinner. The girls are positively salivating. We don't eat a lot of red meat around here.

Here are some pics of my Valentine's Day decorations (my 2nd favorite holiday, Thanksgiving being #1). I still have some "tweaking" to do.

I bought this banner on Etsy and LOVE it! It's made from recycled cardstocks and gorgeous ribbons!
I'v had the big red platter for a while but always felt that it "needed something" then I remembered the little espresso set we rec'd as a wedding favor from a friend's wedding in NY. I think it kind finished the look.

Front Door Greetings!

The table in foyer. Still not sure where I'm going w/ this yet.

And last but not least: KJ & Magster!!!
(Not sure why KJ's face is orange)
