My Funny Valentine

My lover had a late night class on V-Day.  By late night I mean he didn't get home until almost 11pm.  Don't worry about us though...we made time for a little Valentine's romance over the weekend.

I spent the evening with the other boys in my life.

What happens in Ohio when it warms up to 35 degrees?  We play outside without coats.  We're having a heat wave this week.  This is the first time in about 6 weeks that we haven't had snow on the trampoline and the boys have been itching to jump again.  (As much as I enjoy the warmer weather...this is the ugliest time of year in Ohio.  UGLY.)


Then after some heart shaped pizza, I sent the kids to bed, slipped into something more comfortable and spent the rest of the evening figuring out how to do this:
Why yes, that is news paper print on my fingernails.  I saw it somewhere and HAD to try it.  It's the perfect manicure for a nerd like myself.

What else is a girl to do on Valentine's night when her boyfriend/husband is at the library studying? You're crazy!

35 degrees is freezing to me...80 degrees is more my style and what we had today.

Glad you are getting to spend some time outside during your Ohio heatwave. :) Still sounds cold to me.
How in the world did you get newspaper print on your fingernails?

That is awesome! How in the world did you do it?

I think fun time with the kids is an awesome way to spend any day, including valentine's day, as long there are still moments with the hubby later. The nails are SOOO awesome! How did you do it??????

Sounds fun! I think this time of year is ugly everywhere. My kids were out riding bikes because it was so "warm". Ha... 35 degrees feels wonderful after a cold cold winter.

Pretty sad when 35 is a warm up, huh?! I totally agree about how ugly it is. Half melted snow covered in dirt with gray skies. Yuck- makes the other seasons that much more beautiful.

Awesome!!!!!!!!!! I'm thinking music would look cool too.

And regarding the lyrics below--this is really funny-after hearing that song (we both kind liked it) sooo many times--I never put it together about them breaking up?! I swear I don't listen to the true meaning of songs...
