And the winner is...

Brittany at Mommee and Her Boys!!!!!! Yeah, for Brittany!

Thank you all for participating in this little giveaway. Do not fret if you didn't win because I had a blast doing this and I'm sure I will be having another one soon. I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day, with enough lovey feelings to make your heart swell.
As for me, I am about to drag the boys to the store (in the beginnings of a snow storm) to buy myself some flowers. Seems the hubby forgot (again) it was Valentine's Day (WTH?) or something. Butthead. Anyway, I'm buying the prettiest tulips I can find, and maybe a new car too. HA!

Update: The hubby came home on his lunch break with hand-dipped chocolate covered strawberries. My absolute favorite thing in the world. Redemption!

Oh man... alright yippee, congrats to Brittany, but I still want to pout about it! Looks like the boys had fun too! Your Hubby isn't the only forgettful one, I gave mine a hug and kiss this morning and a sweet "Happy Valentine's Day Hun" and he was all... "Oh yeah it's Valentine's Day today huh, yeah you too" *blah* He still has the rest of the day to redeem himself! :)

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

I'm telling ya, K, you can SOO use this to your advantage. Serious guilt could get you something pretty blingy!

Happy Valentine's Day! Sorry hubby forgot, maybe he's going to do something for dinner. A girl can hope right?!?!?

Oh and the boys are too cute!

the dragonfly said...

The boys are adorable!

And *sigh* that I didn't win, but I didn't have high hopes. Would have been fun, though. :)

My husband knows better than to get me a gift on Valentine's Day. I told him if he wants to get me an "I love you" gift, the best time to do it is any other day, when it's a real surprise!

(You can call me a spoil sport, I don't mind. I still put a "valentine" on my blog...with a bit of help from the Little Mister. :)

CONGRATS To Brittany!

My husband doesn't do Valentine's Day...perhaps I should get myself a new car too!


Oh no, you have the buy a new car
thingee too? Sounds like Dave.

Valentine Day cards and a big
heart shaped box of candy last
night, so we all could be together,
when we got it. He's a big softy
sometimes, I love that about him!
Happy Valentines Day from all of

AFF- Yes, I suppose I could use it to my advantage, but I don't like guilt gifts. I think I'd rather have nothing.
I just got back from the store with some lovely red tulips for myself. They are gorgeous! :)

Laura said...

Happy v-Day!!!

Melissa said...

Just found your blog and as a mom of a 6, 4 and 2 year old, I can relate. Your kids are adorable.

Congrats to Brittany! HAppy Valentine's Day Kathryn!

Nissa said...

I'm glad your hubby saw the light! :) So many bloggers are saying they don't expect anything on V day, or that it's overrated. I heart Valentines Day & DEMAND chocolate!

Enjoy those strawberries, darlin'!

Ashley said...

Congrats Brittany!

Kathryn...I'm glad you got yummy strawberries! I got an ecard. So, if you wanna come help me pick out a car, I'll wait for you ;)

david mcmahon said...

Hi Kathryn,

Whew, am I relieved to hear about the redemption. By the way, a new car is mandatory with any tulip purchase.....

Kristen said...

Congrats to Brittany!

And Happy Valentine's Day Kathryn! I also drug my kids out in a snow storm for roses today!! :-)

Maybe I will get some chocolate strawberries later too!

Laski said...

Congrats to Brittany!! Winning is so much fun! And your little ones looked like they had fun participating in all this bloggy goodness.

Valentine's for me . . . I made a turkey. Clearly I have my holidays mixed up.

Your hubby IS so sweet! I love (LOVE) those!

Is that a Deanna Favre pink GB hat?

Lisa said...

Don't you love it when the redeem themselves? I hope you still went and got yourself some tulips!!!

PS - I seriously had one of my friends get a Range Rover from her hubby for Valentine's Day. Seriously....barf!

Kat said...

Mamageek- Why yes. It is a pink Deanna Favre breast cancer awareness Packers hat! Good eye! :)
Lisa- Um, what? Seriously? That is kinda... um... barf. You're right.

Congrats to Brittany!

Hi Kathryn,

sweet as sugar!

I'm sorry, did you say something? I couldn't see anything past those blue eyes. ;)

Congrats on those chocolate-covered strawberries. (I may have to avoid your blog if you keep talking about yummies!) Tee Hee.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Lotus (Sarcastic Mom) said...

I LOVE that second picture!

And chocolate dipped strawberries? Score! :-)

For the record, I did not forget Valentine's Day! My dearest tends to get impatient and when she does not receive immediate gratification upon waking, she perceives it to be spousal neglect. However, I know better. I play up the suspence and then give my gift. I had made dinner reservations for tonight at a very romatic italian restaraunt two weeks prior as well. We had to cancel because of horrible weather but nevertheless, I made them! Ok Ok I forgot a card...that I admit. I feel no guilt, for I am not guilty!!

That's TWO posts IN A ROW that I have read that mentioned chocolate covered strawberries. There's a message hidden there, I just know it. I NEED to eat some ASAP!

I love the photo of the kids picking the winner!

I am so happy for Brittany-- her excitement was enough to brighten my day! Thanks for such a fun contest!

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
