Happy Belated Valentines Day!!!

This was a whirlwind of a weekend, leaving me not able to post like I had planned. I had planned on sharing a few Valentine's party pictures and decorations on or before Valentines Day, but of course that didn't happen! I was partying at the boys' school all day on Friday (whoo-hoo), which consisted of FOUR parties! Then Friday night they had their first Valentine's dance at their school (too cute) and I also had to drop Deondra and her best friend off at one of her cosmetology classmates' birthday party! Whew! Saturday, Deondra and I had to be at the salon at 7a.m. for me to get my hair done by her!!! Her stylist was sweet enough to let her come in and do my hair while she watched her to make sure she was doing it correctly. Of course, my picky child wasn't completely convinced that she did a good job, but I liked it! I think my opinion is supposed to count? Right?!!! LOL

Later that morning, I had to take her to dance rehearsal at church and then to work that evening. Davon had his birthday celebration (will post pics later) at Incredible Pizza, which was incredibly crowded! I'm getting way too old for so many bodies in one place! Eeewwwww! I love kids, but there was a definite overdose of them in that place!!! OMGosh! Now we are finishing up DJ's biography project due tomorrow, that we all should get an "A" on! He chose Tony Hawk (diehard skateboard fan), and trust me when I say my hubby and I know more about the man than his own mama does!

Anyhoo, that's our weekend in a nutshell! I'm still trying to recuperate! Hubby and I will be celebrating Valentines tomorrow, since he's off. Somethings have to be delayed when you have so many kiddos! Here are a few pictures of my decorations before I take them down. Hope you had a great Valentines weekend!

I got this wreath at Wal-Mart last year. I actually forgot I had it! That's me in the glass reflection, juggling the mail and my phone trying to get a good pic!

This is one of my mother's towels. I think she just bought it because it was pretty (she loved pink), but I have added it to my Valentine's collection in her memory!

These are some towels I found at Target. I think I paid $5.00 total for all three, but I'm sure they are probably on clearance now, so be sure to hit Target if you like them! I wanted the rug, but had already spent too much. I might go back and see if it's still there.

Yes, my tablecloth is a little short! I grabbed it at Dollar General and didn't pay attention to the size! It was $1.50 and after I already opened it, I saw one at Wal-Mart for $1.00 that was bigger! I'm going to go back and get it!!!

I ordered these hearts from Avon (I buy more than I sell! lol) last year. One constantly fell off and was held in place for a few days by the blinds!

Davon's class needed cookies and I was asked the day before if they could be individually wrapped! Arrrggggh!

After some carefully torn sheets of Saran Wrap and some ribbon from Dollar General.....The end result!
