V-Day Countdown

If you have been reading this blog you know that I have been trying to do many different fun things for Cory and I such as dates and this Countdown to Valentines Day, once again another idea from the Love, Actually blog. This was a fun way to have a little celebration every day. In fact when the 15th of Feb came I was a bit sad we had no more cards to pull.
Here are a few of the things we did as part of the countdown:
Heart attack a door in the house and write things we loved about each other in the hearts. I decorated the head board doors and Cory did our bedroom door (we still have these up, I don't want to take them down).
Make or buy a Valentine for each other with $1 or less. Cory made the heart card and I made the M&M card.
These pictures are two more things Cory did for me. The first one was, do something nice for each other. For his nice thing he finally (after only 3 1/2yrs) installed my hideaway drawer under the bathroom sink. For my nice thing, I cleaned all the fuzzballs off his UofU pants (not pictured). The second picture was a love note we had to write for each other. Cory used conversation hearts to write my love note (it looks a bit special now, because Phoebe got to it before I got it and licked off most of the messages or just plain ate the heart). My love note for Cory (not pictured) was written on the shower walls with shower crayons.
I loved doing everyday of this countdown and even Cory got into the spirit and came up with some really cute and creative gifts. We will definitely be doing this again next year!
