Friday 5: Celebrating Simplicity PLUS! a Quick Valentine's How-To!

Here's to 5 simple happenings from the week worth celebrating AND a bonus! quick Valentine's cake topper!

Here's to Vaughn's new shoes and to her first indoor soccer game. 
(Are these shoes her or what?!)

Here's to being brave enough to try and to having the determination not to give up.
("I don't like this bike! I wanna keep trying! I don't like this bike! I wanna keep trying!" Vaughn learning to ride without training wheels might need a post of its own.)

Here's to this Big Lady falling asleep in my lap. 
(This hasn't happened since she was a baby and who knows if it will ever happen again. I loved every minute of it!) 

Here's to Room Mom's that plan parties to make Valentine's Day exciting, even for 4th grade boys who are kind of over the whole thing.
 (The secret? Whipped cream and a little competition. Vance is hoping to win the Best Sports theme for his Valentine Box and doesn't even know that he'll soon be diving face-first into plates of whipped cream. Also notable, where did my baby go?)


Here's to finishing the painting in the dining room and being one step closer to it being totally done.

But wait! There's more! A Valentine Quickie!

This week has been crazy, but I din't want Valentine's Day to come and go without any to-do, so I whipped these cake toppers out in about 10 minutes yesterday. I used leftover glitter paper, but any paper will work.  I traced a heart shape, cut it out, and hot glued it to a bamboo skewer. 

Then I cut out a bunch of "L" shapes and a few triangles to make arrows. 

So, I don't have the actual cake done yet (Vaughn has her heart set on helping make it, so it's on the agenda for this afternoon), but hopefully you get the idea!

Cheers and Happy Valentine's Day!
What are you celebrating this weekend???
