Bits: Valentine’s Day Edition.

Let me start by saying, Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’ve always kind of loved Valentine’s Day.  I think there was one year when I claimed I hated it and it was dumb and it was invented by greeting card companies and blah, blah, whatevercakes.  I was just trying to be cool.

I’m sure you can tell, I’ve stopped trying that now.

So…Happy Valentine’s Day!  I love it!  I love you!

So there.

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, my husband got the flu.  So far he hasn’t given me the flu and I hope he doesn’t because I had my heart set on chocolates.


Here’s what Tom and I did this weekend while avoiding all things flu…

Tom was super excited to receive a birthday present in the mail from our friends Joy, Kenon and Wren.  Especially because it was a TRUCK!  I made the mistake of giving him this gift immediately after he woke up from a nap. Now I think he’s gonna be disappointed when all he gets is yogurt.


Tom totally pulled his shirt into the bath with him and then acted like he didn’t mean to.  For about 2 seconds and then he played with it constantly by trying to throw it on me.


Tom got cuter.


The used toy fairy anonymously visited our carport.  Twice.  Around 11 a.m. someone left the tricycle.  I saw it when I brought Tom out to take him for a walk and we played with it for a while.  Then around 5 I took out the trash and the swing had been placed right beside it.  I’m assuming they were left by my neighbor. Isn’t that the sweetest?! I plan on leaving a plate of cookies in her carport in return. 


I let Tom hang out with me in our guest room — which I used for party central — and completely forgot his Valentine’s Day gift was sitting out in plain sight.  So he immediately found his pack of little trucks and started playing with them.  To which I said, “Happy Valentine’s Day!!!”  I mean, he has no idea what day it is.


I made a shirt for Tom to wear on Valentine’s Day.  I think it says, “This is a manly baby Valentine’s Day shirt!” Which was exactly what I was going for.  To find out how I made it, CLICK HERE.


Happy, Happy Valentine’s Day y’all!  I was serious when I said I loved you.  (Maybe I’ll leave cookies in your carport too.  You never know.)

    Hey Kate,
    We are so happy Tom loves his truck! Wren picked it out all on his own (well maybe a little birdie told him Tom’s favorite toys are trucks :)) The pictures of his first birthday were wonderful!! You are so very talented everything looked so magical!!! We hated that we had to miss it! Hopefully we will get to see ya’ll soon 🙂 Loves and Hugs! Joy

    LOVE. I used to wear black on Valentine’s day to be cool. If we had known each other when we were trying to be non-valentiney-cool we would have been friends then too. Sooooo true.
