When Silk Plants Direct asked me to choose one of their floral products, I was overwhelmed with the different flowers and plants to choose from. It was so hard to decide on which one I wanted to try. This was a challenge for me because I'm such an indecisive person and all of their selections were so pretty. As I did a face plant in the palm of my hand, I decided to go straight to my favorite flower. I chose the yellow Tulips in a glass container.

It just screamed Spring to me. I thought about how pretty these will look during the Spring and Summer months. I also though about how great these will look on my table at Easter.

The shipping was quick. When my package arrived I was so excited and immediately tore open the box. I’m glad they were wrapped and packed with protection because I dropped the box while opening it. “Whooo” no harm done. They were perfect. I gently unwrapped the packaging and lifted the flowers from the box. I spent the rest of the day placing the arrangement of Tulips all over the house. I wanted to find the perfect spot to show them off.

These Tulips look soft and delicate and even feel real. 


They were perfect from the petals to the cute moss that blanketed the bulb. If you look closely you will see these Tulips are sitting in an illusion of water. This means I will never have to water them. Yes, that's my kind of flowers. 


With the affordable prices and quality products, I plan to shop at Silk Plants Direct for any future plants. I’ve already got some ideas in my head for my future beach house. Did I mention, they have Palm Trees too?

This Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day! I hope everyone shares some of the love in their heart today weather you have a loved one to celebrate with or not.

I woke this morning beside the man I love. We cuddled in each others arms whispering sweet nothings in each others ears. YEA RIGHT! It was more like pulling on each others eyelashes or flicking ones lip to make funny sounds until one or the other is awake. We are always picking and playing. This is what makes it fun. But we will let each other rest too. 

Being a happy married woman, means I have a Valentine everyday. 
The man I love is always dishing out more love towards me than you could ever know. I’ll admit, I’m a whole lot of lucky blessed and a little spoiled.

He will not get a box of candy or even a card today. Did you know that cards are like 7.50 in the stores now! Ridiculous. 
I will not be getting any roses, cards or candy either. We both decided not to spend our money on those kind of things this year and spend it otherwise. We show our love every other day of the year so its no big deal. HOWEVER, we do plan to cook or go out to a nice dinner.

For breakfast I baked a batch of healthy oatmeal biscuits. Each biscuit is only 30 calories and made with oats, almond milk, an egg, banana and strawberries, These were perfect to get my day started. 



I really miss the days my daughter was home. I made heart shaped pancakes every Valentines Day.
She was home earlier this week so I gave her a bag full of goodies for Valentines Day. No matter how old she gets, I just can’t stop the childish traditions. 

Being Valentines Day, I wanted to wear something valentiney. I went to a pile of clothes that I was planning on getting rid of and pulled out an old sweater that was stretched out and not any good. 

   

 

I added some crochet trim to the oversized and stretched out collar, then added felt hearts on the elbows. 
I sort of like how it turned out. It’s a little sloppy, but in reality, I will not be in the public eyes. I work in a stinky little office where I see about three coworkers that are in and out all day. 

What are some specials things you have planned for today?
