Giving The Husband A Hint....



Do you think this is a subtle hint that Valentine's Day is coming? I know it's a bit early but I wanted to give my husband plenty of time to notice. Remember ~ he's a bit oblivious of his surroundings...but he's a good guy!


(this cherub was reg $49.99 - I paid $14.99 @ Jo-ann's After Holiday sale)


(I updated my "faux" flowers a bit for some "Luuuvvv" colors. Don't you just adore those little sparkly hearts!?.. & the candles smell sooo good!)


Sorry not too much to post.. started way too many "Spring Cleaning" projects all at once that now I am a bit overwhelmed!! Also the kids have been keeping me busy with their school projects ...speaking of kids, looky what I found as I was loading my pictures into the computer just now....







That's from the 4 year old. Sneaky little guy figured out how to turn on my new camera & take a picture faster than I did! Give him some time and I bet his pictures will turn out better than mine too. Have a great weekend! :) ~ P.S. - Bo at Blinks n Winks nicknamed my little guy "Cherub" I think that's so appropriate - not only because he loves to run around in his underwear with his little cherub belly hanging out but he does bring love & joy to all of us around him! Thanks Bo!~

It looks adorable...but, he might miss it! Mine would. I just have to come right out and tell him...

Bo said...

Nice to visit your blog again...my DH would probably not notice the "hint" and would try to eat one of the sparkly hearts... LOL.. I really love the LAST cherub you showed us! So cute! ;-) Bo

Twice as Nice said...

Well, if that doesn't do the trick I don't know what will!! Looks great.

He is precious! Don't you love to see what kids do when you're not looking? My Valentine decor would have to consist of a frying pan ready to conk my husband on the head to help him remember b/c I don't think those angels and hearts would do it for him! LOL! Or maybe he justs plays dumb. Hmmmmm.....

Oh Laurie, he IS a little cherub, and a darn good photographer (especially for a 4 yr old). Let us know when he starts his own blog.
My husband could live in the midst of hearts falling from the ceiling and wouldn't notice (unless one fell in his food)! Pretty V'tines Day decor. laurie

That fuschia pink color is gorgeous with all you candles, etc.

Your little guy is too cute and VERY cleaver. Love the pics!

Glenda said...

You know children always steal the show. Chubby cheeks are always cute.


Ciao

If hubby doesn't get the hint from that, there's no hope.

Bo said...

Awwww, you flatter me with your edit...but I still think your baby guy is a real live cherub! ;-) Bo

Your little cherub is precious. Love those pictures. You must get them printed off for your album.

Love your Valentine decor. The calendar will very soon be turning over to Feb. It's not to early, I don't think.

Laurie, you are just too funny.. lol.. I wouldn't "borrow" too many things if I came for a visit.. I'm glad you like my bunny.. there will be close ups soon my friend.. Thanks for the visit and kind words. I always love when you swing by.. hugs ~lynne~

Those hints are awesome! I might have to borrow the idea and put some around my house too!
Your son is a darling little cherub!
I have an award for you on my blog!

What a cutie!!! If hubby doesn't get the hint drag out last years card and see if that causes him to look at it!!!!
