valentine kitchen and birthday parties!

oh my.. sorry .. I disappeared again!  bad bloggy pal I am!  
I don't know what Ive been doing.  just stuff I guess.  
we had Scarlet pies first birthday party this past Saturday..  
she is just adorable I tell you!  I'll post some pics from the party in a minute.  
Here are a few from my kitchen.  
Don't you just love to decorate? 
I can not help myself!  

the kitchen usually has fairly decent light in it so I can get some ok pics in there. 
 but the living room is another story!   too dark.  but I'll take some in there this week sometime.
Still haven't been able to do any valentine crafting..  but planning on it for Saturday.
I have a friend or two coming over to play!
then after that its seriously back to work in the bear dept.
  I have procrastinated far too long.

I hung some hearts on the front porch after work tonight and it made me feel like I should go buy some valentine tinsel garlands to put around the doors 
and a red tinsel heart wreath to hang on the door! 
lol... you know I'm going in search of those things on my lunch tomorrow.
hopefully walmart, dollar general or dollar tree will have some.
I wont have time to go to Joann's or Micheal's, 
where I know they have them.
fingers crossed!

OK!! look at this beautiful little princess! 
isn't she perfectly awesome? 

she was so cute trying to figure out what to do with that cake!  
I you want to see the rest of her party pics.. look at my flickr site, I just uploaded about 28 pics I think.

Okeedokie.. that's all for now folks..   I have to go make my husband a milkshake and get a fudgicle for myself.   and then I'm coming back to blog hop!  
have a great week!

Oh you are the best decorator Viv! I finally did my shelf yesterday, but need some more stuff out. OMG that sweet little face trying to get the cake, adorable. Hope you find the goodies for your outdoor décor, and have fun playing with your friends on Saturday! :)

Everything looks just so pretty in your house. You know I can't wait to decorate for each and every holiday and then complain when it needs to be all packed up. You'll have to keep us posted on whether you find the things you want to decorate your outside. Darling bday pictures too! Such a sweetie. Have a great week, Viv!
