Fit for a king!

Matt and I went to Show Low for a great weekend with Annie, Trever and the boys. We sure love going up there, it is really relaxing and the food is always great! One of the only things Matt has wanted to do this winter was to make an igloo! His dreams came true! Show Low got hit with a snow storm as we were driving up on Friday night. Saturday, after a bridal shower for the girls and some target practice for the boys, Matt and Trever set to it! The got buckets, gloves, and motivation and created a masterpiece. I must admit that I did not think it would turn out as good as it did. The pictures I have are not the finished product. For the absolute finished igloo mansion, go to Trever and Annie's blog. The blog was huge, it could fit 4 people in it! Deep down I think Matt wanted to sleep in it, but I did not! Hope everyone had a great President's Day!

Valentine's Day!

I am not a huge fan of Valentine's Day. Sure, I appreciate the added love and chocolate given by your husband, or lover, but...for the most part, I don't think you need a day to show someone how much you care. I think Valentine's Day is a hallmark day. A day to raise the prices of flowers to a ridiculous rate, and to crowd the sides of streets with teddy bears and silly things. I especially hate teaching on Valentine's Day because their are 3,200 students carrying around teddy bears bigger than themselves, 100 balloons each and they are all on a sugar high from period 1! On the flip side, being a little hypocritical...Matt is the sweetest husband around! We decided that we are going to start a new tradition of making our Valentine cards. Since Matt loves to make things, tinker with his hands in the garage, I decided to make his out of metal. I love to eat, so Matt made mine out of chocolate.Here are the final products!

For not loving Valentine's Day, Matt did a fantastic job of making it a great, romantic day for me. I had volleyball practice, so while I was gone, Matt ordered Cafe Rio (my favorite) and we had chocolate fondue with Morgan and Lauren. It was a great way to spend the evening with loved ones!
