Valentines Day was FUN!

Our Saturday wasn't your typical Valentines Day. No reservations were made, nothing fancy happened...but we still managed to have a blast together! Caleb woke me up early and decided to get donuts (I swear, he knows the ways to my heart!)

We don't really do "big gifts" on V-day so I knew we'd be keeping it small... so I wanted to do something more personal for him. My gift to him was a print with some lyrics from the song he sang to me on our wedding day...my awesome SIL created it and I couldn't love it any more. He really liked it!

Besides the donuts, he gave me the neatest DIY book, as well as an Emily Giffin novel! He knew I was obsessed with her "Something Borrowed" series, & I thought it was sweet how he remembered. His catch was that I had to pick one project out of the DIY book and we'd spend our evening doing it.

So, we were off to the Flea Market then Ikea. We decided that (while we had fun at the flea market) we like it much better in the summer. The outdoor vendors that obviously aren't there in the winter, are the ones who carry all the neat antiques/etc.


We had a gift card to Chili's so we had an early dinner after the flea market, then headed home to get started on our DIY project right away. We had a blast and I can't wait to show you what we did (later this week)! We even bought Caleb a drill... he prefers to be called Mr. Handyman now ;)


Caleb is such a great man. He literally makes me laugh until I cry, and I love him more every single day. I hope you guys all had a fantastic weekend!!

  3. We have an IKEA about 4 miles from my house and I swear that I go there way too often haha! But that, along with donuts would make for the best day ever. Donuts are literally my favorite food ever (unfortunately) haha!
