{happy valentines day!}

In response to Stephanie's comment on my last post, I decided to own up to the fact that I myself am indeed one of 'those women'- part of the percentage who buy themselves Valentines flowers! :) That being said, let me say that I think something is to be said of the fact that I own a flower business and therefore have the impulsive desire to flower-ize my living space for such a holiday as Valentines! I just like pretty things and I like being festive- I promise I didn't do it to pretend they were from a man. ;)

Here are a few pictures of my V-day centerpiece (that I bought/designed for myself) which I currently have in my front room.

I created a custom arrangement this week for Tracy (one of my favorite blogstalkers!) that her husband ordered for her. I liked it so much that I made one for myself. Here's a close up.
I am a lover of simplicity. I love taking a simple concept like this (vases with just one type of flower in them, in this case carnations) and then making vase collages. And might I add that carnations individually are one of my least favorite flowers, but carnations in abundance packed together suddenly become flowers I love.
And just for fun, I thought I'd tell you the story of what happened to my car tonight. We had a Friday the 13th Girls Night with all the girls in our ward where we told 'dating horror stories'. Ha ha! SO funny. I can't believe some of the gems these girls have had the privilege of dating.

Anyway, while we were about our business of sharing our hilarious stories, this is what was happening to our cars in the parking lot:

The men in our ward were toilet-papering, saran-wrapping, candy/oreo sticking, and writing on our cars! I hear they were disguised in hoodies, how very stealth of you, boys. :)
Wub u all too.
Happy Valentines Day! I get to go to the symphony in Salt Lake! I think it will be fun. What are all of your fun plans for the 14th?
