February Forward

I don't mind saying "Good Bye" to January and "Hello" to February because there are always a few fun things to look forward to!

1. I look forward to creating fun Valentines treats!
I try to come up with fun Valentine cards each year ( to send to the grandparents), and we always have a ton of fun doing it!. Here is a sampling of what we have done for the past two years.

FYI: This card was from two years ago and my Pappy still has it hanging on his fridge! It always makes me smile when I see it!

2. I have a great friend who has a Birthday this month. I love shopping for her. She lives out of state so I kind of play a game with myself to see what gift I can get that I can easily send through the mail! I hope she likes what I have my eye on! I love sending ( and getting) mail!

3. What everyone is probably looking forward to this month: DISNEY PRINCESS HALF MARATHON WEEKEND!
We have everything taken care of at this point, resort, dining, magic bands, etc. All we have to do is pack and get there safely!



4.  Although all my Christmas stuff is put away by January first, I tend to keep some winter decorations out through January ( like snowman). But by February that stuff all gets put away. I am hopeful that Spring weather will be here soon!


5. I may be hoping too soon because yesterday we got some snow! I may have caught Baylee eating a few snowballs as I shoveled the driveway.

What are you looking forward to in February?  How many of you are resisting the urge to start packing already for Disney?
 Everyday I think about starting to pack ( then I remember that I must do laundry first!)

If you missed any posts from the Virtual Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend Blog Hop, You can read them HERE!  These ladies wrote some great ( informative) posts! Make sure to check them out!

  2. Resist the urge? Too late! LOL! I'm half packed and trying to resist living out of a suitcase for the next 17 days! Most of it was easy because it's warm weather clothes...of which we have NONE of that right now!

  7. I'm not a Valentine's Day fan, but it is nice to think I'm just a little closer to spring weather. I'm over this winter and want some warm weather again.

  9. Your cards are precious....I did card making when we lived overseas, but now I don't seem to have time...must be the house! Looking forward to Princess weekend and as a matter of fact, I am working on a race costume today. Can't wait!

    1. These cards are all done on the computer so it don't take me much time! Can't wait to see your costume! Are you running with your sister again?

    2. Yes, but she will be going for a good time in the half marathon and I will be just doing it as a training run. I have a feeling she may be going after another prize at Disney! :)

  10. OHHHH... your furbabies... I just want to kiss that yellow lab on the nose.
    Yep - I think I'll win the contest of Christmas decoration - our tree still stands :)

    1. I think the yellow lab is adorable but I am biased! There is a family downtown that still has their tree on the porch and I am still seeing a few pumpkins lying around too!

  11. OMG, I thought it was just me being excited and anal and wanting to pack now. But you are right, there is laundry and the every day things. I must be patient. Though that hasn't stopped me from putting things in a basket to start preparing, like my costume.

  13. Is the event this weekend? How exciting!!! I think this month I'm looking forward to getting back a bit more balance in my life...also I spent a lot of money in January so I'm really trying to focus on being frugal. Now go get your laundry done so you can pack! :)
