Button Heart and Cookies. And what your husband really wants for Valentines day.

Countdown to Valentines day! 
And dealing with the same question that every wife is battling with.

"What do I get my husband?!?"

This year I just asked him. 

He wants a card and sex.

I can do that.

I'm putting a lottery ticket in the card and writing 
"No matter what, you'll be getting lucky tonight."




Cute right? You can steal the idea.

Now that's settled, I can move on to the rest of my check list.



Lots of button hearts on Pinterest lately. Pulled out the glue gun and did a little late night crafting and....adorabs! Dollar store frame (with glass and everything!) card stock and buttons from hobby lobby. I traced the heart. I tried free handing and it looked like Collin did it.

Spent the "game part" of the superbowl last night making sugar cookies. 
I stopped and watched all the commercials and the last quarter of course.
The one with the Clydesdale horse running back to his owner totally made me cry.

These cookies are so good, Lydia and I are going to enter them into the state fair this year. 
I'd bet money they'll win. SO good. 



"World's Best!"
Sugar Cookies

Cream together:

1 C shortening
1 C butter
1 C powdered sugar
1 C granulated sugar

Beat in:

2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Add:

4 C flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt

Mix to blend. Shape into balls (1 inch) roll in sugar or roll out and cut into shapes.
Bake 375 degrees 8 minutes on ungreased pan.

Perfect every time.

Sorry about the crap photos. One of these day I will pull out the SLR camera again. It's just so much work.
For now, I'll stick with the camera phone.

I, too, have been enjoying picmonkey's new Valentine's Day themes. hahaha.

Also, I appreciate mom bloggers who admit sex is a thing. So thanks for that.

Oh dear. Are we supposed to keep it secret? If so, I'm a total slut.
