Memories Captured: Valentine’s Day

We had big plans for Valentine’s Day. We dressed up in our best Valentine’s gear:



We decorated cookies with one of our cousins and best buds, Vinnie:



And then stayed home while Mom and Dad went out for sushi:


And to top it off, all the complaining in the earlier post must have helped because I lost 4lbs.  I’ll shut up about it now. :)

The other three enjoyed a few new books and they each got an iTunes card. I would have included pictures but couldn’t pin any of them down. Nico and Tommy both had practice and Belle had dance. Hats off to Chrissy for making Valentine’s Day special for Gia. All I had planned was a day in our pajamas eating sweets. :)

    • Thank you so much, my friend. I would love to know which part of my crazy eating was the result of the loss but right now, just enjoying the number finally going down. :)

  7. YAY!!! FOUR POUNDS!!! That is just SO awesome!!!!!! :) I want to steal that Gia and take her home with me and cuddle with her for hours in those pjs. Just sayin’… :)
    And btw- my hubs and family and some close friends call me “Chrissy” so that TOTALLY threw me for a minute! HA! I thought to myself, “YAY! I saved the day! Oh wait…no I didn’t!!” LOL

  8. I’ve never had sushi. Ever.
    Yay for those 4 lbs!!

    • I’ve never had the raw fish kind of sushi (well, a friend made me try it but I’ll never again ever eat it). I am more of a California Roll kind of girl. I’ll only get the cooked stuff.

  9. Hey, I had meat-lovers pizza and lost 4 pounds for Valentine’s Day too!
