Happy Valentine's Day!

So i LOVE today. I know there are you haters out there that are all like "OMG, this is such a Hallmark Holiday" and while they DO play it up, it's NOT CREATED by Hallmark! Here's some history for ya, since i was a history major...
Saint Valentine's Day is named after one or more early Christian martyrs, Saint Valentine, and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD. It was deleted from the Roman calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI, but its religious observance is still permitted. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

So see it's okay to celebrate this "Hallmark" holiday!

This past weekend was SO busy for Chris and I, I know, what's new! But I got my Valentine's day gift yesterday! WAINSCOTING!!!! We put up wainscoting in the dining room and I LOVE IT! There's still a lot of touching up, caulking, mudding, and painting to do... BUT it's up! YEA!

Kinsley also had a very big weekend, she got her First Haircut! OMG, I know!
Why this turned her picture sideways, i do not know. BUT she was sooo good for her haircut! She just sat there with her usual "what the heck are you doing to me this time mom" face on! God I love that girl!

So i asked the woman to just trim a little bit off the back and out of her eyes to even it out. Yeah, well the back is great. The front end result is very....

Oh well, i'm sure it'll grow quickly~

Happy Valentines day!
