Blogging about all life's ups and downs, and trying to find some humor along the way.
Because the important moments in life just don’t fit in a status update! I started this blog when I was training for my first ½ Ironman, (70.3 miles) to record what I hoped would be growth and progress but ended up being a huge learning experience. Although fitness is one of the key ingredients to a happy life, it certainly isn't the only ingredient. My blog has evolved to document growth, progress and setbacks in other areas too. From my surprise proposal in Rome and wedding in the fall of 2013, to Mom's devastating stage IV cancer diagnosis and death 2 weeks after I found out I was pregnant. Who knows what shape it will take, but thanks for being along for the ride.
I'm excited to do this for Nathan! Last year, I did a scavenger hunt for him on Valentine's Day. You can view that posting here. I like that this is for two weeks leading up to Valentine's Day, so it helps build the excitement while taking a little pressure off of the gift. I plan to leave these by the coffee pot or in his car in the morning, since I leave before he does. Or, around the house if it's something he won't be taking to work (like the sparkling cider). The printables are found here. I've made my shopping list, and have started picking up a few items each time I go to the store.
One or two of these could be used instead of the whole 14. You could also use some of them for children, friends or co-workers. "You are the apple of my eye" is great for a child, and "You are soda-mazing" could be given to just about anyone.
You are the “apple” of my eye!
You could also use apple juice, candy apple rings or actual apples.
“Honey, comb” you’re hair, because we’ve got a date tonight!
If you’re not into cereal you could just use a regular comb.
You are one “hot tamale!”
You could also use Red Hots or any other cinnamon candy.
I’m “nuts” about you!
You could use any type of nuts, a Nutrageous candy bar, or Nutter Butter cookies.
I wouldn’t “chews” anyone but you!
You could also use Starburst fruit chews, Charleston Chews, or Chewy granola bars.
I think you are “soda” amazing!
You could also use Soda Candies or Soda Crackers.
We were “mint” to be together!
You could also use York Peppermint Patties, Butter Mints, or a mint flavored dessert.
We make a great “combo!”
These were my husband’s favorite growing up so I just had to use them! They are found right by the checkout.
You could also use a combination flavored pizza or PB and J combo jars.
Thanks for “stick”ing by my side!
We lose chapstick as soon as we get it around here so this works well for us.
You could also use Chic-O-Sticks, Orange or Raspberry Sticks or super glue (or anything else sticky for that matter).
I’m “bananas” for you!
You could also use real bananas or banana flavored candy.
You have o”fish”ally stolen my heart!
You could also use gold fish crackers.
I would be so “mix”ed up without you!
You could use any flavor of Chex Mix, trail mix or other snack mix.
Life would be un”bear”able without you!
You could also use a honey bear or Klondike Bars with the bear on the front (just be sure to keep them in the freezer).
You make my heart “bubble” over!
You could use any type of carbonated beverage, Bubble Tape, or Bubble Yum.
