Happy Valentine's Day... :)

So I typically don't like Valentine's Day. I'm not really a fan of all the pink and red and overall gaudiness of it all. haha :) Thankfully Adam isn't either, and he knows that I don't really like getting flowers (1. they die; 2. my cats destroy them so I have to hide them to keep them safe, then I don't get to enjoy them) or chocolates (Yeah, I don't really care for chocolate; but give me some sour patch kids and I'm good to go). I do love balloons, don't get me wrong, but yeah the cats destroy them too or are afraid of them, so no balloons in the house. :)

Anyways, so for Valentine's this year Adam took me antiquing yesterday. :) We went to a bunch of different places, and at first I was getting disappointed since I wasn't finding anything I really liked or wanted. But of course at our last stop, Franklin's, I found a few things that I thought were great! :) Adam only likes to antique for about an hour, then he's done. Unless of course the shop we are at has a large gun and knife section, then he is content for a little longer. haha So after about 3 hours yesterday, he was done. (Note: We did stop at 2 car lots to look at cars, so he did get to do something he enjoys too. Well I enjoy that as well, so a win win for me.) :)

Here is one of the things I got yesterday. Yes, it's bright yellow, and silly and a little scary, haha, but I love it! :) It's a bank too!! He's going to fit perfectly in our house. And he was only $5!! YAY! I'll get pictures of the other little things I got later tonight and add them to the post.

And next are a few things that I LOVED but of course don't have a place for, or it was already on layaway for someone else.

This little red table and mismatched chairs is SO CUTE!! And the huge stove behind it is amazing!! haha I LOVE old appliances, and I always tell Adam I'm going to take the wall oven from his grandma's house. It's this old mustard yellow color, and it's in great shape. It's so retro and would be so cute in our future house. :)

And then I found these beautiful doors. Of course someone has already bought them. :( (sigh) But they were nice to look at and I'm so glad I got a picture of them! Oh the things I could do with them!!! :)

I hope all of you have a great Valentine's Day today, whether you like the holiday or not! I'm choosing to focus on how lucky I am to have such great family and friends that I love and that love me back for me! Don't think though that Adam got off completely free today though. We both have to work all day, but tonight he is making one of my favorite dinners. Grilled Salmon on top of a salad with strawberries, pineapples, asparagus, almonds, cheese and of course Strawberry Vinaigrette dressing. YUM!!! I can't wait for dinner!! :)

Oh yeah, one more thing, I made a funky little necklace on Friday night. hehe :) I'll post it later tonight!!
