TBB Asks February

It’s that time again, a new month, a new theme of questions to answer from the fabulous ladies of The Blended Blog. Follow along and let’s see how much we have in common!


1. It depends on who the kisses or hugs are from but unless it’s my husband doing the kissing I’m good with a hug!
2. I’ll take flowers, they’re lower in calories, lol! My husband knows I’m a cookie fan so he used to buy me cookies for Valentine’s Day from the cookie store at the mall. While I really appreciated it my waistline did not!
3. I love to bake and do it when I’m stressed and when I feel blessed! In my opinion anytime is a good time to bake. I especially love baking for others!
4. I remember who my first kiss was with but none of the other circumstances. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
5. My favorite color of roses is pink of course!
6. No conversation hearts for me, I’m not interested in sugary candy.
7. I have left sweet notes for my husband in the past but unless you consider a heart drawn on the list of things he needs to get at Costco – no.
8. I do a little decorating for Valentine’s Day because I enjoy it – I’m pretty sure I’m the only one in the house who does but that’s fine by me!
9. PINK ALL THE WAY BABY!
10. Milk chocolate please.
11. Hmmm…no, I believe you can feel a connection immediately but lasting love takes time to develop.
12. I’ll go for the funny anytime but my husband better write a more serious sentiment on the inside, like how he can’t imagine living his life without me! HA!!! I buy serious cards, usually for my husband though because he’s serious and not a crack pot like me.
13. While I love them all, Sleepless in Seattle is my favorite!
14. We stay in, I’m not one for crowded restaurants and I prefer to make a delicious meal at home, it’s sort of my gift to my husband and my sons.

Here are a few pics of my decor for this year – I’m not quite done but you’ll get an idea of how I love to incorporate a little love into the mix!
Our fireplace mantle is one of my favorite spots to decorate. Fresh flowers in sprayed dollar store glass vases, a fun tassel banner from Target, and a little art is all it takes to get Valentine’s ready!
 
More flowers, a handmade Valentine gift from one of the boys, and my very favorite candle adorn my kitchen sink area.
My dining room is the area I’m still working on. Actually I’m looking for a table runner and a centerpiece. Right now I have a tassel banner from Target (2 years ago) and not much else.
Of course we can’t have a love post without bringing up my favorite Love sweater . If you haven’t gotten it yet, now’s the time! It is super cute and so versatile! It plays well with blue denim, white denim, camo, and this week I’m planning on wearing it with red pants!
I hope you enjoyed today’s post – I’ll be back tomorrow! I so appreciate your visit and your comments mean the world to me, I love to connect with my readers.
I’m wishing you all a marvelous Monday filled with lots of love!

XO,
Kellyann

    Oh you adorable romantic lady, I love how you’ve decorated the house for a romantic dinner with Bri. I
    certainly remember my first kiss, when, who, where, what a nice thing to hold on to in old age! But let’s clear the air here about current day kisses, I can leave you a hug but is an ether kiss permitted?! Hugs … errr, x?

        Well, we do have cosy meals … at home. Went out once, in 80s, hated the assembly line feel – rows of tables for 2 , 1 red rose on each table. We don’t plan our outfits and we don’t decorate. Reading these TBB posts today made me realise how UNromantic I am!

          Well I’m laughing because when I had to answer all these questions I thought, wow, we’ve really changed! We used to be so sweet and romantic – are we old and crotchety now??? I guess I don’t like getting flowers because it’s the thing to do but sweet little gifts are fun!

    But I’m an equal opportunity chocolate lover—-give me any and I’m a happy girl!!

      Oh thanks Jodie! I guess I love any reason to pull a little pink into the decor around here! Ha! Plus it gives us a little lift after the big holiday let down, lol. Your anniversary is Valentine’s Day? How sweet!

    No big surprise that we share many of the same answers. I feel the same way about cooking for my family on Valentine’s. I never wanted the kids to feel left out, so it was a family celebration for us too. Love your decor. I’ve done a little more in the past, but this year I went with the minimalist approach. You my friend are a real “sweetheart”💕 Have a great week! I guess you’re really getting into the groove of your new gig and lifestyle. YIPPEE!!! XOXO

    • Kellyann
      February 5, 2018 / 2:51 pm

      Well, yes, I’d say I’ve gotten into the groove of the new gig. So much so that I complain when I have to be “camera ready” by 8:45am! Seriously, I get up at 4:15 and used to have to be to work by 7:45am. Why in the world is it such a chore to shower and have make up on? Such a diva!
      I am putting together a little package to send to Nolan and his roommates for V-day, I think they’ll enjoy getting a box of goofy stuff and I know I love doing it.
      Next year when we’re empty nesters we’ll probably still eat in – I’m not into all the hype. I am into all the presents though – ha – so if he wants to – Brian can give me a present any day to celebrate this sweet holiday!!!

    I usually decorate my home for V-Day, but this year I waited too long and now I think I’ll skip! Lol! I do plan to maybe work on a V-Day craft for the blog HOPEFULLY, if I get it done in time. I love your decor, especially the tassel garland! I had to chuckle at the note you leave for your husband… my poor husband gets a lot of honey do lists, too! Lol! Maybe I need to draw a heart around it next time. LOL.

      Well, back in the day I used to write him notes on the mirror with lipstick but that hasn’t happened in awhile! Ha! Actually I would do that if I was going somewhere overnight!
      I love any excuse to pull out a little pink!

    Oh I love those tassel garlands! I might need to pick some up! We never go out for Valentine’s day either. We give our daughters dinner early and then we make a more gourmet meal later and enjoy it together. I like spending the time together in the kitchen!

      I like spending time together in the kitchen too as long as Brian is washing dishes, ha! I love cooking as long as he cleans. I bought the tassel garlands 2 years ago when I hosted a baby shower and they were perfect to keep for Valentine’s. You gotta lover Target! Your Valentine’s Days are just going to get sweeter and sweeter as those precious girls get bigger – oh the fun you have ahead of you!!! I am so happy and excited for you all!

    I can say no to candy (like conversation hearts) but I am all about some cookies! I’m also all for skipping the crowded restaurants and staying in. I love these surveys you blended blog ladies do, so fun to learn more about all of you!

      Well it’s true! When he brought me gourmet cookies I ate them ALL because I am ridiculous and then I did nothing but complain afterwards, ha! How’s that for being a grateful gift receiver. Bless my poor husband’s heart, the man literally cannot win for losing sometimes!

    This was so fun to read! I laughed about your drawn heart on the Costco list. Can I steal that one?? Your decor is fun. I bet your it is noticed and even liked. My boys will remark about festivity. I know they like it. Guess I should step it up. P.S. I like baked goods. 😉😉 have a wonderful week Kellyann!!

      I just sent my college boy a box of stuff for V-day and I sent decorations for him and his roommates to put up. They love doing silly things – I swear they’re crazy! They had a spa day last week when someone sent them panda face masks – they looked ridiculous but it was so funny! It makes my heart happy to see flowers and pretty pink banners!

    I love the answers to those questions. They brought a smile to my face. But it’s funny–when the kids were all younger, I celebrated Valentine’s day by making heart-shaped cakes. My first marriage wasn’t exactly romantic unless you consider being thrown down a flight of stairs foreplay–LOL!!
    Now with my French husband, every day is Valentines Day (tee hee)!! I remember my first kiss in the schoolyard (Catholic school no less), but the one that is the most important was the first kiss from my husband. We had just started seeing each other and for some bizarre reason, I was driving. Anyway, he very seriously told me to pull over to the side of the road–which I did because I thought something went wrong. Then he told me to turn the car off. And I did–and at this point I thought he could have possibly been a murderer. Then he very gently leaned over, took my face in his hands and gave me the best kiss of my life!!! It was awesome!
    I have two favorite chick flicks “PS I Love You” and “Amelie”!

      What a beautiful story Catherine and of course your infusion of humor makes it even more delightful! How wonderful to have a second chance at love and with someone who loves and cherishes you! Such a gift. I tell my kids all the time the person they marry is one of the most important decisions they’ll ever make. No pressure, right? Hahaha. Then I wonder why they’re not dating anyone! Hee hee!!!
      Thanks so much for stopping by sweet friend!
