A Day of Love...Fast Approaching!

I love Valentine's Day... the hearts, CHOCOLATE, and red and pink.. oohhh :) But this year, the mister and I have decided not to get each other presents in interest of saving our hard earned money! But when I saw this on Megan's blog, I immediately started writing down ideas. Cheap, cute, and totally practical as we are always saying, "I'll give you a dollar to..."
So I might end up doing this and here's what I would put on mine:

Making dinner {he is the primary cook in our house, so it would give him a night off!}

Letting the dogs out {Sam constantly "nudges" us during the night, and we always say YOUR TURN}

Driving to get late night snacks {I'll fly, you buy... but I never fly!}

Turning off the light at bedtime

Laundry Duty

His choice of TV show {we usually find something "we both like" which means something I like}

Clean out the man-cave

Hmmm... I need some more ideas :)

On another Valentine's note, I was at Target today perusing the V-Day section when I found the cutest suckers with heels and the saying "I'm head over heels for you". Well, ya'll know that my BFF Kayla L-O-V-E-S heels so I had to get them for her. Then I found this Cosmo mix that came in the cutest glass jar shaped as a heel, and threw that in the cart too. Then off to Hobby Lobby where I found some heel shaped cookie cutters and tissue with heels on them... omg, heel heaven! I drove over to Kale's straight after work to give everything to her because I'm horrible at keeping presents a secret and... I just couldn't wait!!!

Isn't she just the cutest thing!

Okay, last thing... not actually Valentine related, and I've kind of been forbidden from buying him anymore clothes- check out number 21-but they were only ONE DOLLAR each!!! How could I not? Chuy definetly got two new shirts today. Ha!

He is going to be so cute in that little peace tank when it gets warmer!!
