I am. It's so silly!

I'm giving my son a Crepe pan with spatula that I found on Tuesday. Wasn't looking for anything like it. Just ran across it.

I had to get it, as he is in a crepe making phase. All our spatulas are too big and bulky and end up ripping the crepes. The one I found is the perfect size. The crepe pan was just a silly, unnecessary extra. But, it makes for a neat gift.

I can't wait to see his reaction!

Yes, my 4 year old grandson is obsessed with Minnesota Gopher hockey. I sent him a Goldy Gopher stuffed doll. My son said he loved it

Well I was planning on buying them anyway but I am giving my teen boys Book of Mormon tickets in their bucket of candy. The show is in March.

It just happens to be timing...I don't usually spend that much.

My five year old has been asking for a "Slushie Magic" since the summer when he saw the silly thing on TV. DH declared it a waste of money (even for $19.99 at Target's As Seen On TV EndCap) and yet he continued to persist. His birthday and Christmas passed without his dream for homemade slushies. Three weeks after Christmas I ran to Kroger by myself (when does that ever happen) and spied the Magic Slushie box. It was with Christmas clearance, but lacked a clearance price tag. I decided to find out how much it was - $1.99. Needless to say, he is currently enjoying an apple juice slush. . . he's thrilled and even my very frugal husband can't argue with $2. I was so excited to give it to him this morning!111

I spoiled DH this year. ♥ I don't get a chance to do that often. I got him a tablet. Amazon sent the wrong one and I was worried the replacement wouldn't get here on time, but it arrived about 20 minutes ago

oooh, what you said!

I was super excited to give my husband this:

I like to tell him "You're my favorite," and he will tease me back and say "Favorite what?" So I made him the answer.

It is already hanging up in our bedroom. He loved it.

Perumbula, I saw you mention that on a thread earlier this week. The final product is even more gorgeous than I imagined. Nice job!

I always make my DH something for Valentine's- every year since we got married almost 35 years ago. I was really excited this year because last night, he finally arrived in New Jersey, where I moved almost 5 months ago for a job. He's been at our house in California all this time getting the house ready to lease, and taking care of his business. I made him a special digital layout, and I had it printed and framed, and I was so excited to actually be able to give him a gift in person... he loved it! (Our Valentine's Days are just simple affairs- we usually go out to dinner, and DH buys me flowers or a card... he's very romantic, but we don't spend a lot of money) I'm so glad that, although we've been apart for all these months, that he was here for Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Gift

Ideay pues?

Yes. my best friend is going through a rough patch and I made a milagros chain for her. (I sprinkled a lot of hearts in the chain and the milagro symbolizing friendhsip). She called me this evening and told me it was one of the most thoughtful gifts she had ever received.

For those of you who don't know what "milagros" are, here's a link:
