monday, day 43
happy valentines day! allen and i dont really make a deal out of it. sometimes we'll use it as an excuse to go shopping or out for a nice dinner, but it varies year to year. this year we went on a family date. we had papa murphy's heart shaped pizza, then went to a chocolate festival at a market down in austin. the festival was a bust, becuase, well, there was no festival. i had read online that each department would have some kind of chocolate to sample, 'come experience chocolate from around the world!' we got there and had walked through 3 departments and seen nothing, so i stopped at the hot tea counter and said
me: excuse me, the chocolate festival......
tea lady: (shakes head as i'm asking)
tea lady: well, yeah. but its over tomorrow.
me: (wanting to say something smart-alec, like, 'well, its not tomrrow yet') ....ok, so there isnt anything?
tea lady: not really. we were supposed to have a few vendors here, but they didnt show up. i think it was mostly during the day.
me: ok. thanks.
so we walked around, and did end up finding a display of choclate from white chocolate with coconut to dark chocolate with cherry bits mixed in. we each picked a treat (or two). i got a salt and cracked pepper dark chocolate car. SO good! allen got a chocolate bar with bacon in it. oddly gross. i thought i would like it. false. and we got my dad (who loves spicy anything) a bar with peanuts and jalepenos in it. the kids each picked a few little pieces as well.
tuesday, day 44
colby picked this hot cocoa mix out at the chocolate festival monday night. i've had several mugs of it this week while allen and i sit and watch our recorded shows after the kids have gone to bed. yummy!
wednesday, day 45
when i put molly in the shower this evening, these fell out of her underwear!! she had somehow accumulated them on the playground. i know they can get in your shoes, and maybe pockets, but underwear? good gracious.
thursday, day 46
allens day off. we went to chick fil a for lunch, and the kids traded their kids meal 'toy' in for an ice cream cone.
friday, day 47
my dad is one of the chaplains for the police department, and i've been asking him to come by when hes on a ride out so the kids can see the police car up close. they caught us just as we were heading out to grab some dinner. the kids thought that was 'so cool'!
saturday, day 48
major spring cleaning today. this is my spotless kitchen. i hadnt even put the chairs back at the table yet. i wonder how long until its dirty again.....
have a blessed week!!
