This Weekend...

~ Friday evening we went out for our Valentine's Day dinner... with our 12 year old.  We don't wan to leave her home alone and we don't know a baby sitter.  We usually end up taking her everywhere with us... which is fine. I had a few mixed drinks (I don't remember the last time I drank)... then promptly fell asleep on the couch at 7:30 PM.



~ Saturday morning we woke up to snow... it wasn't really all that bad.  Madison and I headed to Panera (our favorite) for lunch, then to Target, and AC Moore.  We decided to forgo the movie... but plan to go next weekend.




~ I finally made it to Ikea and got the black square frames I have been wanting.  I have a super easy and cheap DIY art project for the living room I am hoping to share later this week.




~ After Ikea we found a Target and went for a 2nd trip this weekend.  I have never seen one like this.  You parked underneath and took an escalator up to it.  When you leave, you put your cart on the escalator to go back down.  Madison loved this.  I bought curtains for my living room at Target, brought them home, made Chris hang them, and HATE them.  I will be returning them this week.



~ I made white chocolate dipped treats for Madison to hand out at school and packaged them up using labels I ordered for super cheap from Tiny Prints in December.  I love how they turned out.  I included an Oreo, two pretzels, and a Dove Promise in each one.

Super cute treats! I wish I thought ahead to get some of those sweet labels. I just made Logan's preschool teachers chocolate covered strawberry's and chocolate dipped oreos. We also go each one a single rose. Hope they'll like them.
Sounds like you had a nice weekend out of the house :). Good for you!!

Those Valentine's treats look sooooo good! Panera is my daughter and my favorite restaurant to go too. Our best talks happen there :)
