These two own my heart. . .
I had eighteen days off over the holidays.
You may wonder, what does a person do with almost three whole weeks off?
Well, the answer is I SLEPT.
I slept A LOT.
I also visited friends during the holidays.
I played Cards Against Humanity and I laughed until I need my pants (but just a little).
What can I say, I’ve given birth three times and my sphincter just isn’t what it used to be.
I also spent a lot of time watching NCIS.
I’m up to season 8 in a 16 season TV series.
Sadly, I didn’t get to see The Swede.
But this is the way things go when you live 5,327 miles apart.
I did EXACTLY what I said and I binge watched TV while quilting.
And guess what?
I made THIS!
I spent some good quality time with my boys before I said goodbye to my oldest son as he left for Army boot camp in Missouri.
My youngest son got his driver’s license.
I sat naked in a hot tub and soaked under the stars.
Sure, I was alone but oh, well.
That’s someone else’s loss 😉
It was a GLORIOUS holiday and one I will treasure forever.
They are at an age now where they are keenly aware of what is cool and what isn’t.
Dodge Chargers? Cool.
Bieber hair? Not cool.
College football? Cool.
Valentine’s Day? Not cool.
They happen to be the two most important men in my life and since I have no one to celebrate a ROMANTIC Valentine’s Day with, I opt to celebrate a FAMILIAL Valentine’s Day with them.
I’m sure they’d rather I not, but I am a Type-A overachiever and I can’t let a holiday go by without celebrating the SHIT out of it.
Therefore, MILK AND HONEY CAKERY.
I just ordered a dozen as a gift from me to my spawn.
I just love the sentiments on the cookies:
- U STINK
They’re absolutely perfect for giving to my way-too-cool-for-you teenage sons who actually groan at the idea of me giving them a Valentine’s Day gift (that isn’t cash).
Last year though, they stuffed their pockets with the cookies and gave them to their friends.
Because apparently it’s cool to insult your buddies.
And just for clarification, I did not receive any discount for writing this blog and will not receive a kickback if you buy any cookies.
I just happen to think MILK AND HONEY CAKERY is awesome and I have to share.
