Friday's Happenings

Today's schedule:
~ Played with pup.
~ Got dressed and ran a few errands.
~ Had a fantastic time at the dentist.

Yep, you read that right.
The dentist.
I'll let that sink in for a moment.

Those of you who know me well know that I have had a totally terrible relationship with dentists. Our whole family has had bad experiences in that tooth wrenching chair. Water up the nose, instruments up the nose, numbing shots gone wrong, etc. etc.

Goodies from the Dentist office!

But when I married my hubby 6 years ago, I didn't realize that I was marrying into a family that had a wonderful, gentle, careful dentist: our sis-in-law's dad. For six years I have had wonderful treatment, no instruments up the nose and no pain. But today they took the dental experience to a whole new level.

Today was spa day at my dentist's office.
Have you ever heard of such a cool thing?
My mom-in-law and I went together and it was amazing!

Clean teeth, massage, paraffin dips for the hands, warm neck body-buddies, candles everywhere, calming music, a gift bag of goodies, a rose, and chocolate.
My dentist offered me chocolate. Oh happy day!
I felt kinda guilty messing up the great cleaning I had just received, but I was just trying to follow the dentist's orders :)

Little love letters made out of polka dot felt left over from this post.
All that to say... I am terribly late with today's post and I'll just be sharing a few photos of my valentine decorations because hubby will be home soon and I still have a ton of stuff to do before he arrives!

Come on back tomorrow for some more fantastic valentine’s photos and an awesome recipe. What fun recipes are you trying out for your honey and kiddos this weekend? Share in the comments below!

Dog bone cookie cutter ... and they call it Puppy love...

This post was supposed to be linked to several fun parties, but I can't find the links. Either 1) I'm too relaxed from the massage to think straight or 2) I'm losing my mind. I'll go with option 1, thank you very much!

If you find an awesome party to link up to today, tell me about it so I can join in on the fun and check out your page as well!
All photos taken by yours truly.
