It's Valentine's Day!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!  Let's celebrate with my {TEN} favorite things happening on this Valentine's Day!!!  And if you get the chance hop on over to Mom 2 Memphis and Ruby and link up for the Tuesday 10!  That's where I'll be linking up today!

Even though we are going to be on the road Valentine's night, there is always something to be happy and grateful about. 

The things that are cause for celebration on Valentine's Day 2012

COUGAR TOWN!  Words cannot describe my excitement!  Big Joe, Big Carl, Big Kimo?  Truth guns?  Penny CAAAN???  I'm so ready!  I love the cul-de-sac crew! 

GLEE.  The Valentine's day episode.  EPIC.  Will Sam and Mercedes finally get together?  Is Blaine's eye better so he can shimmy and shake?  What will Finn get Rachel for Vday, besides the engagement ring?

This necklace.  MY NECKLACE.  The hubby did it.  He ordered The Saved By Grace necklace from Agape Love Designs and Photography.  I'm so excited.  It's inspired a big blog post about the connection I have to this necklace.

Saved By Grace

A new Vday shirt and my red skinny jeans!  I have a manic love for my red skinnies.  So since Valentine's day is all about red, this day demands red skinny jeans.  What's not to love?  

The sweetest Valentine's Day card from my preschooler.  My first offical "school" valentine.  She brought it home last week.  It's what I've been waiting for.  Technically it's for me and her dad, but really it's mine.  The sweetness and construction paper hearts make my own heart swoon.  Even better today Caitlin's class is having an ice cream party!  Pictures to follow! 

A Valentine's Day mani/pedi.  My mom, who is the best mom ever, is coming over at 8 this morning so I can go after I drop Caitlin off at preschool.  That way I can fit it in before the Preschool Vday Ice Cream Social.  Happy Valentine's Day to ME!!

Elsie's cupcakes from A Beautiful Mess.  The hubby loves the Peanut Butter Monsters!  The kiddos love them too.  I planned on making these before we left on our little vacay, but I ran out of time.  I'm making these for us to enjoy when we get home.  I've got vday cupcake wrappers and sprinkles ready and waiting!  

Still lovin my recent Vday crafts.  I'm so proud of my self that I saw some inspiration through to the end.  I see one million and one things on Pinterest, and most of them just get pinned or liked.  So glad I put in some time and surprisingly very little effort!  That's how we craft around these parts.

Right now my favorite song is "Without You".  Origninally sung by David Guetta, my favorite version is my Lea Michelle, who is Rachel Berry on Glee.  This song is amazing.  It haunting and beautiful.  It talks about a love so complicated, yet the only answer is each other.  When I think about the lyrics, I think about my husband.  About our journey.  Nothing would ever be the same without him.  My favorite lyric:

I can't win, I can't reign
I will never win this game
Without you, without you
I am lost, I am vain,
I will never be the same
Without you, without you

Hear Lea Michelle sing it here.

Another Valentine's Day, with my hubbs and my kiddos.  I'm lucky in love, if I may say so!  So we are traveling on this day, so what!  We're all together.  That's what matters on any holiday.

What are you loving on this Valentine's Day???
