Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! We started our morning with our traditional breakfast of waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. yum. When John and I shared our first Valentine's Day, 11 years ago, he gave me a waffle iron and made me breakfast with said waffle iron. We still have waffles almost every Valentine's Day (or the weekend closest) I made the waffles this morning, and he was in charge of the coffee (very important!!), turkey bacon and sausage.

As I have mentioned previously, one of my Christmas presents from John was a gift certificate for stripping the wall paper in my studio/craft room. That is what he is working on today. Doesn't really sound all that romantic, but let me tell you, I am so happy to see that paper coming down. Now all I have to do it pick a paint color....the boys are routing for "hot lips". Now, as much as I want the room to be pink, I'm not sure an entire hot pink room is the look I'm going for....

The last picture is of a canvas I ordered from here. It has a verse that we had read at our wedding and I thought it would be a perfect little something for John. I have hung it in our kitchen and I am very happy to have brought a little red into the room. (Ok, maybe I really wanted it for me) Nice reminder of our wedding ceremony, and a little kick in the pants for me to be more patient etc! :) Jennifer did a lovely job with it and it arrived super fast! Thanks Jennifer! :)
Enjoy your weekend!

Stripping off wallpaper is not a fun task, that's a great gift! Be sure to post what color you end up picking.

Glad you are finally getting the wallpaper down. Let us know what paint color you pick. My favorite new color is beach glass from sherwin williams!! It is just a very calm color. Good luck picking yours! I just love all the beautiful choices out there!

P.S. My new sofa for my living room finally came! Yeah! Now I need accessories. No of any great places to find some? :)
