Post Valentine's Day pictures
Well, I never did pictures posted yesterday, as planned. I thought I'd have time to post some at work, but our Internet was down all day, so that didn't happen. When I got home, I was busy right up until it was time to catch some Zss.

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day. Please, tell me how your day went! :) Here are a few pictures from my day yesterday!

The day started off fantastically when I was presented with breakfast in bed (you didn't actually think I was going to show you a picture of me in my pjs, did you?)!

Oronzo got up early with Snuggle Bug, let me sleep in a bit, and made me breakfast! I had pancakes with sausage, milk, and juice. Yummy!

The best part was when Snuggle Bug and Oronzo hopped up on the bed and ate my breakfast with me! :) I certainlyl didn't mind sharing.

Here's Snuggle Bug in his new "Sealed with a Smooch" shirt that I bought him at Old Navy just for Valentine's Day. Can you believe I got this on sale for only $2?!

If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you might notice a heart sticker that says, "kiss me". Snuggle Bug loves stickers so I made sure he got one.

He also loves stamps, so he started his Valentine's Day off with a stamp on each hand. When Oronzo took him to a library story time yesterday, he said he got a lot of compliments from the mom's on Snuggle Bug's festive attire. :)

Here's what I had waiting for me when I arrived at work...a box of chocolate! Now that's what I'm talking about!
The only snag is that I still don't know who left them for me. I asked around all day yesterday and no one is 'fessin up. I did figure out that several of us ladies got boxes of chocolate, so someone decided to spoil a lot of us. :)

Did any of you get any "mystery" gifts this Valentine's Day?

Here are pictures of Snuggle Bug getting ready to deliver Valentine's Day cookies to our neighbors. It started sprinkling rain just as we were heading out. Luckily, the drizzle subsided fairly quickly! It took us a fair amount of time to deliver 21 packets of cookies, even with declining our neighbor's gracious offers to come inside to get warm. Everyone was tickled pink with their surprise delivery! I think Snuggle Bug enjoyed himself and so did I!

After all the hard work Snuggle Bug did delivering cookies, he deserved a treat of his own! He was quite happy with his Valentine's Day gift.

And if you're wondering how Oronzo made out this Valentine's Day, well, trust me, he was taken care of.

Oronzo got his own packet of cookies, a nice Italian dinner, and at the end of the day, he got a massage and some special attention in our bedroom filled with candles.

All-in-all, our day was hectic but spectacular, how about yours?!

P.S. I'll try to visit your blogs later today. I just didn't get to anyone's yesterday at all.

Sounds like you had a great Valentines Day! I had a good one as well, but didn't do the dinner I had planned. We are just going to do that one on Sunday when I know we'll have the time. I did enjoy face painting at my daughters school (just for her class) at their V-day party! The kids loved it!!! I also enjoyed seeing my daughters face when I served her heart shaped waffles, honeydew, and cantaloupe for breakfast! She loved it and so did I! Have a blessed day!

What wonderful pictures! And how fun was that, delivering treats to all your neighbors. You are so clever. It's easy to see you all three had a wonderful day and evening of fun. Breakfast in bed. Lucky you!

Awwww... so cute. I love Valentine's Day. I think I already said that though. I spent the day at a funeral. My dad's sister. Very sad. Then went to my dd8 party and home to make my heart meatloaves. My brother brought me chocolates and a card, dad brought me a lovely card and some cashews and macadamia nuts, mom gave me a gift card. My hubby is getting a stock bonus friday and has told me I get it all as my very special valentine... works for me.
Looks like a perfect v-day for your gang.

OW, What a sweet and thoughtful thing to do, going out and delivering homemade Valentine cookies. Sometimes, it's not what you get but what you give, and in return, you receive! I love that Snuggle Bug and Oronzo made you breakfast in bed and then you all shared it! :) Now that is really sweet! :)

Aww, I love Snuggle Bug's festive t-shirt and sticker! The pictures of him are adorable. Wow, cookies for all of your neighbors? I feel like a bad neighbor now, haha =p That's very generous of you!

Breakfast in bed sounds awesome! That was very sweet of your two "boys" to do for you! I'm glad you had a great Valentine's Day!

Mine was wonderful too, I posted a wrap-up if you care to peek at it! See ya for FIF tomorrow!

I love the wagon idea! The day after we finally moved from a condo to a house, I bought one and pull my DS around all the time in it. I like the decoration idea though!

I think I'll start doing that on holidays or swipe it as a WFMW idea!OK- maybe do it!

You are too sweet. Wish we were neighbors!

Awesome pics! I'm so glad you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Steve is not here with me, he's at Basic Military Training in TX. But I did send him a very sweet card.

What a wonderful day! My hubby bought me a gorgeous flowering plant in a red bucket. It is just beautiful and I pray I don't kill it. Tomorrow night we are going to a dinner show which should be a lot of fun. I got kisses and candy from Tara and Alexys and Joey and I spent the day together (you can read about my bittersweet day with Joey). Today I watched my grandbaby which was a huge treat.

Hugs to you!
