I was pretty excited on Thursday, because for the first time in several years, I had a date for Valentine’s Day. I mean, it was a play date, and I wasn’t counting on getting lucky or getting any gifts, but I was excited anyway. We were meeting some friends to go bowling, and for once I was on time. But not really, because the kids and I went to the wrong bowling alley. Get this – the town we were in has two bowling alleys, on the same road. What the hell, right? It’s okay, though. If I wasn’t confused about the location, we would have missed seeing the most ghetto arcade ever.
Since I’m a sucker for anything trashy, we had to take it for a spin…
…and jam to some Japanese music. Note the sweet matching Valentine’s Day warm-ups from Grandma and Grandpa. It took me two days to get the kids out of those outfits. They even slept in them.
We finally made it to the correct bowling alley, and the kids got their bowl on. Lily had fun. She even got two spares. Next time I bowl I’m going to try her winning technique of setting the ball on the floor, rolling it gently down the lane, and waiting. And waiting. And waiting some more.
Graham was more into air hockey, and following around the token guy. Mr. Token was a total douche, but the kids thought he was the baddest mo fo in town. He did throw them a few tokens, so I guess they were able to overlook his overall jackassery.
Who says Valentine’s Day can’t be exciting once you have kids?
I made a kick ass Polka Dot Cake, and knocked out a Pinterest worthy tutorial showing you how to make your own. If you aren’t in the mood for a three-tiered, surprise inside cake, you can just use cake pop pans to make these adorable booby cakes.
I wrote a letter to my husband, sharing 10 reasons he’s still my Valentine. My kids aren’t the only family members I like to brag about, and The Doctor is a sweet piece, if you know what I mean.
We made Pineapple Glazed Ham for Crock Pot Thursday, and it was easy and tasty. If you like glazed ham, this is a good one.
I can be an awesome friend, but I also kind of suck. I made a handy dandy chart to help you decide if I’m worth it.
I finally got to share some super exciting, seriously big time news. I’m smiling just thinking about it.
Graham popping up in the window freaked me out creeper style…
…and Lily freaked me out serial killer style.
Much like Jesus on a tortilla, I made Eggs-in-a Hole on Valentine’s Day, and check out this yolk! It’s a Valentine’s Day miracle, right?
