Happy National Gum Drop Day

So I've never been a big fan of Valentines Day. Maybe it dates back to the boyfriendless years of high school when those friends (you know, the ones that ALWAYS had a date on Valentines) would gush over the oh-so-romantic things that their boyfriend did for them....a romantic dinner at Joe's Crab Shack, a Teddy bear hugging a single rose, the heart necklace from James Avery. Oh, how sad a high school girl can be, left at home to listen to Tori Amos and the Cranberries' sad, droning music and write poetry in my journal. Thank God those days are behind me!

Fast forward to a thirty year old with a husband that travels EVERY Valentines Day - no, I'm not still bitter. But as you can tell, V-day has never ranked too high on my list of favorite holidays. So I'd like to wish you a very Happy February 15, otherwise known as National Gum Drop Day and National Susan B. Anthony Day!

In observance of yesterday's holiday, I will post the pictures from the SADC Valentine's Playdate on Sunday afternoon.

Ahh bummer! I'd have been your Valentine if I'd have known. Not that that would have made a difference. :)
I can't believe all the little ones that will be growing up together.

Ahhh the things you all will be doing and going through. Tons of fun filled days and blogs to record them. And pictures they will love/or not love.

Yes, I was that girl in high school too so I'm not a Valentine's Day fan either. Adorable pictures - what a fun group!

Her O looks so good! I'm so pumped for you guys! Fyi, I have acid reflux so I wonder if they're connected at all. Still praying for you guys and Harper, but I'm so amazed at how great it looks. And my belly button is pretty darn awesome because of my intestine surgeries! :)

You wrote poetry in your journal in high school? WOW. I was on dates with worthless high school boyfriends while you were upping your quality of writing!!
