Show and Tell Tuesday - Your Loves

Happy HAPPY Valentine's Day, friends!!!
I've always loved Valentine's Day and an extra excuse to tell the people that I love how much I love them and the candy ain't bad either :)   I'm helping out in both boys class parties today, they're BEYOND excited to pass out their Pokemon treats and I'm just hoping that nobody does anything super awkward in middle school.  hahaha  




It's Show and Tell Tuesday and we're talking about our LOVES!!!  I'm going to take the opportunity to do a quick "reintroduction" of my four FAVORITE people in case any of y'all are new and would like the cliffnotes version of who hangs out at my house :)

Dave and I have been married for 11 years, but together for 17.  Yes.... 17 years.  (It will be 18 this Fall which BLOWS MY MIND!) I was a 15 year old Sophomore in high school and Dave was a newly-16 year old Junior and we fell in love over fried mozzarella sticks at Black Eyed Pea :)  



Well, we didn't fall in LOOOOOVE over the cheese sticks, but he definitely asked me to a movie and then we went TP-ing together and have pretty much been inseparable ever since.  


We got engaged and married in 2005 (look at those BABIES!) and the rest is history!


There is NO ONE more selfless, giving, patient and caring!

You can read more about our love story HERE and about how Dave "wins my heart" on the daily HERE.


Luke will be 9 this April and he may just be the smartest person I know.  He is a great big brother, a wonderful friend and cute as a freaking button.  He is a voracious reader, a lover of learning about EVERY THING and has about zero patience for having his picture taken :)



Mason will be 6 this April and is a Kindergarten rockstar.  He loves a laugh (both giving and receiving), is feisty on the sports field and is NOT a morning person (like his mama).  He loves to create, idolizes his big brother and has a compassionate side well beyond his 5 years.





Griffin will be 4 this April (seeing a theme here?) is a lover of all things pink, can eat her weight in cheese and has the sweetest little maternal side you ever did see.  She was the biggest and best surprise EVER and is counting down the days until she starts Pre-K

So there you have it!  My LOVES!!!

I'm excited for y'all to link up below and share a little bit about your loves!

  9. I always LOVED being in the classroom for parties. You really do look like such a baby in those early pictures. That youthful look you have will serve you well😉. Griffin and I might just be cheese soul sisters. I knew I liked that spunky little girl. Beautiful family, Andrea❤️
