Happy Valentines Day!!!

A day of love and romance......or a crazy day of errands, chores for MIL and back to school preparations!!! My day was the later, BUT i did make dinner a special occasion....now keeping with the theme of red for Valentines Day, we had Spaghetti Bologanse and this lovely Raspberry Heart Pie:
This was fun and yummy......and a great cooking project for the kids to help with!!! Actually today was full of love and romance, I woke up to a beautiful message from DH and then when i checked my blog he had left one there as well, so a special dinner was prepared and we spent a lengthy time at the dinner table, as a family, enjoying each others company.
My day was full of errands and such but i did manage to do some more painting in the sewing room and to cut out some squares for my next project.....the kids artwork blocks:

Im still working on some colour combinations and the kids r loving to help pick and chose fabrics, so this really has been a great project to work on. Im not sure how far ill get over next few days as im back to work tommorrow with some HUGE shifts, but i need it. I went in and ordered my Horn sewing cabinet today and although it was quite pricey(ill be working forever lol) im pleased with my choice and will use it ever chance i get!!! and it is sooo cool, great work space to quilt on and drawers to keep my stuff in......cant wait to get it!!!
Last nite a friend came over and we had a "girls DVD nite", with DS included lol...we relaxed, ate far too many M&M's, popcorn and chocolate chip cookies and we watched "The Devil Wears Prada"......great chick flick and a really enjoyable nite.
Tommorrow DD goes back to school....her first year of High School........i wish her all the best for her new experience. I truely hope that this year offers her so many new experiences and i have the faith that she will succeed with whatever journey she choses to embark on!!
Happy Valentines Day!!
