Love is in the Air

I apologize for my hiatus from blogging...I just haven't had a whole lot to blog about I guess!  I just wanted to share with you my birthday present that I finally mounted up on the wall!!  The front room to our apt. has 4 large white WHITE walls. Three of those walls are well decorated but I still had a vast blank white wall.  I HATE white walls and I cannot wait until I live somewhere where I can paint :)  It will be probably 10 years, but hey, a girl can dream right?!  I digress...

Anyway, here is my present on the wall along with our Valentine's decor.  I love it!  Oh, and the pictures are new too.  1.2 years later and we finally had some wedding photos of us! 
 

This week I was also able to hold Enrichment (aka R.S. Meeting) at my home this week.  In keeping with February's 'love' theme, we decided to have it on The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman.  I lead the discussion as well, and I hope that it went ok!  We had a pretty good turn out and had a lot of fun.  I also made bookmarks as a 'take-home' for them.  After the lesson we feasted on some frosted heart-shaped sugar cookies.  


What is your love language?  Do you know?  You can take the quiz online- its pretty quick and interesting!

Lastly, I found this little gem on my camera. I put Zack in charge of taking pictures of me while I opened presents and at cake with my family.



Uh............................nobody told me that I look like this when blowing out candles.  Looks like I'll have to skip this tradition next year.  I look like such a fool- who knew?!  I hope you get a good laugh out of this- I sure did.

Cute picture frame arrangement! I love it! I also LOVE this book and think all wives AND HUSBANDS should read it. I'm like Melissa--acts of service and quality time.

P.S. At least it looks like you blew out all the candles! ;)
