Hey, no need to worry, we're still alive after a seriously case of the stomach flu
Nothing says Valentines day like puking your guts up right? Wrong, I tried quarantining my self but, lets just say that didn't work, but guess what.... it's Monday and we're feeling good! The house is bleached- top to bottom- 2 cans of Lysol 1/2 bottle of bleach, and a container of Clorox wipes down. But good news since my house is sterilized that means you can come over, its 99.9% germ free.       So before the illness struck, I managed to make pull off a partial DIY, that totally counts right? But don't worry the rest is coming, promise!

So here it is...
DIY gold spray paint animals.

Plastic Animals (dollar tree)
Rustoleums Metallic Gold

Lets be honest, you can prime these but if your in a hurry or its super cold outside, just skip it, go straight for the gold. The Rustoleum covers REALLY well,sometimes just 1 coat or some cases 2. Let these babes dry and you're good! Stay tune for part 2 it's worth it, wink wink!

These would be super adorable for a shower just painted, or wait till you see what I have in store!

hunky hubby.

So this is probably not a DIY post more like a what to get your husband post?
Or maybe just like this is my very last post about Valentines day, but no need to worry,
I just realized, that in a month is St. Patricks day! But seriously who's idea was it to put all these holidays so close together? Maybe it was a solution to give people something to do during this freezing winter months. Probably not, but I'm just going to go with it. I am SO ANXIOUS for spring, I picked up a little seed growing kit, okay maybe 4 kits, so I can start all my veggies indoors this year, wish me luck, because that tropical tree I brought in from the summer is barely making it, poor thing. But back to this box, I order this shirt, gum, these cookies (under the shirt), printed off this coupon book, yes, maybe I'm a little cheeseball with the coupon book,  but you guys know this, and last but not least, a plane ticket to sunny Phoenix is tucked in there behind that tissue.

My husband and I both work full time jobs, he goes to school in the evenings, we both have church callings, we also remodel our little house on the side, so we've been feeling trapped in Iowa for too long so why not go to Phoenix for 5 days? We're going! My mom and dad just happen to be down there right now with my dads job, so off we go!!

valentines for her.

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13

So lets face it, sometimes the men in our life fail at gift duty, 
or perhaps not fail but just need a little help so here's a little help, wink, wink!
P.s. image getting all these goodies in one little box, best husband award ever, like mini heaven,
Or perhaps galentines day gifts! Absolutely, but in all honesty I would be more than fine just getting a box filled with cupcakes, they are my weekness, and some fresh cut flowers. Regardless click any of these links to purchase these perfect gifts, maybe for your self too, we all need to treat our selves!

Happy Valentines or Galentines or Day to Treat Youself, whichever you prefer!

Guys, did you really think I was done with the boxes? I can't stop, I just love them
False, I'll never be, I have to much of an obsession with them, but today this sweet little box is perfect for the baker in your life! I teamed up with Kate Aspen to bring you this box full of sweet goodies, and I mean seriously how cute is that mini pink wisk? I know I'm obsessed with it! Also those mini heart teaspoons, so perfect in every single way! I'm sharing the DIY on how to create this over at Mom's Best Network, but seriously stay tuned, I revamped these babies and there coming up in a darling Valentines themed kids party!

P.s. If you have the chance check out Gilit, from the Bannerie, post on darling box round ups!
And she's so sweet she included that little man style valentine's day box in her round up, but I love them all!

Also I'm excited to be working with East and Acland! I can't wait to show you what she has in store!

Guess what? Yes, you guessed right this Saturday is Valentines Day!
So in lieu of a little Valentines these are perfect for friends or neighbor treats.
Hello Tosha designed these super darling tags for the Alison Show meanwhile, I wish that I could decorate those super duper cute peach cookies, I had to come back down here to earth, so instead  I put together these cute little baskets with peach jam + homemade sweet biscuits.

It would be super cute to put just some fresh peaches from the store in this little baskets
If you are in a hurry! But if you can believe it or not, living in a small town of 5,000 we only have one grocery store, and that grocery store just happens to not have any peaches, go figure,
but plenty of pears, lots of pears, but no peaches, so I had to make shift with this!

Happy Valentines!
