Happy Baby Daddy Day!

^^ This guy keeps the Daddy bar set pretty darn high! ^^

On Friday, Husband had his first invite to have Father’s Day breakfast at Bennett’s school.  Oh!  I don’t think I have mentioned on here that Bennett had started school… here are a few pictures of him on his first day, and then I will get back to the post dedicated to Husband ;)

That’s Bennett’s teacher on the far right, Ms. Tracey.  He really seems to like her and seems to be really enjoying school as a whole!  No tears, always happy when I get there to pick him up and it’s not because he sees me, he is just having a good time!  Anyway, back to Father’s Day… So, Husband had the Father’s Day breakfast.  They got there and everyone ate muffins and waffles (and I think there was some other stuff but I forgot).  No mom’s were there at all :( I thought for sure he would send me a text saying all the moms were there and for me to come join them… whaaaaahhh!!  After breakfast they handed out the presents- Husband got a new grilling glove custom with Bennett’s handprints, name, and year, he also got a paper tie with coloring artwork that Bennett did himself, inside the tie was a Snickers bar!  He also got a card with the sweetest Father’s Day poem in it!  Too say I was a tad bit jealous would be an understatement, but boy, does this daddy deserve all the love!

Husband, you are the best father for so many reasons, but the top three that come to mind are:

1. You are a great example for these boys!  You are a hard worker, you love their mama, you spend every free moment with them… if they grow up to be just like you, I will be so proud!

2. You provide for these boys far and beyond what is expected of any father.  These boys will never have a need that will not be met because you make sure that they are taken care of.

3. You light up the room when you walk in!  You never let the stress of the day come home with you, when you walk in they are your only priority and they love it! Their eyes get big and they get a grin from ear to ear!  They just adore you!

Husband, the boys & I are so lucky to have you!  We love you!

Happy Father’s Day!

my forever valentine


Husband got back from his sailing trip on Friday night and Bennett & I were so excited to see him return in one piece!  Being away from him for a week was really eye opening for me.  Not only do I have so much respect for the single mama’s out there who do everything by themselves, but also, I respect how much my husband really contributes to the parenting of our son!  The littlest of things can seem daunting at times, but having him around to help is such a wonderful thing that I never want to take for granted.

Knowing that this man will be my forever Valentine makes my heart so happy.  I know I say this a lot, but he really is the best thing that ever happened to me.  He treats me like a queen, takes {over-the-top} impeccable care of me, and always puts me first.  He’s such an incredible man and I’m proud to be his lady.

Yesterday, Husband & I celebrated Valentine’s Day at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg.  They had the Dare to Dream exhibit on display where it showed a detailed timeline of the relationship between Salvador Dali and Walt Disney.  It was pretty awesome to see all of the work that Dali did and the influences he had on some of Disney’s work!  After the museum, we had a yummy dinner date at Noble Crust where everything from the cocktails, to the apps, to the entrées, to the dessert were awesome!  Will definitely be back again soon!

Doesn’t this look so good?!? ::


The most gorgeous floral design, it’s seriously art.  Husband did SO good!


Thank you, Husband, for another beautiful Valentine’s Day!  I love you!
