Happy Valentine's Day to all. It takes on a new meaning when you become a parent. It really becomes about those who love and not so much in love with. Don't take that the wrong way, I still celebrate Josh and the love that we share, but I love my Charlotte Lyn and want to celebrate that too. I can't believe how fast time flies. It feels like yesterday was last Valentines (you can read here and here.) As you can tell from past holiday posts, I like Charlotte to have a holiday outfit. Call me crazy! Since we have been "snowed in" I never got around to an actual outfit, so we found some things already in her closet, put them together and Bibidi-Bobidi-Bo! Naturally, I had to take a ton of photos of her cuteness :)

Once we got ready (and after the above photos), Charlotte and I ran to vacuum out the car and went to Target for some much needed food, dinner and snacks for the babysitter.

After Charlotte's nap, we opened presents! Josh and I gave Charlotte light-up rings and rubber duckies. My grandparents and Aunt Robyn gave her a Minnie Mouse purse filled with hair accessories and a card with their voices recorded on it! Thank you!!

Tonight we went to dinner at California Pizza Kitchen at SouthPark Mall. They were having a great deal going for V-day... 1 appetizer + 2 entrees + dessert for $30! Can't beat that. And the wait was only 15 minutes (opposed to Cheesecake Factory's 2 1/2 hour wait, where we tried going first)!

For my bouquet of flowers, I get a Rocky Mountain Chocolate carmel apple instead. I can't keep flowers alive to save my life. For my gift, I was to pick out something at the mall (due to the "snowed in" situation, Josh had a good excuse of not getting me anything); but it was too much pressure and we only had about 20 minutes until the mall closed, so we'll worry about my gift later. It was such a nice evening with my hubby. I love him so much and appreciate everything he does for me and Charlotte. He is a great father and husband. I have been so blessed to have found him and, somehow, convinced him to marry me :) I realized on the way home we didn't get a picture together...and then forgot to ask the babysitter, so we took some selfies after I took her home!
In the morning, the Valentine's day plans continue as I get to Target first thing in the morning to get all the 50% off merchandise!
