Bri Corner: February = Bri's Favorite Month

Early morning on February 1st, Bri and Ben still in bed. Bri wakes up "Happy February BEN!!!" A startled Ben sleepily replies, "happy february honey."

I never get Christmas let down - okay maybe sometimes - but usualy never. Do you know why? Its because February is my favorite month. Top reasons My Birthday and VALENTINES DAY.

My birthday is cool because I usually always have someone to share it with. First it was President Regan, who sent me an awesome white house packet when I was 6. Then friends in school shared my day and even my high school French exchange teacher. Later I found out my good buddy Tawona shared my birthday too, we met at UW freshmen oreination back in 2001. And now my Niece Olivia who just turned 7, we met in 2004 when I married into the family.

Valentines day has always been my favorite. We decorate the house in conversation hearts (for the whole month), some of them say "1+1=3" and "wanna make out?" while others say "just friends" and "washing my hair." I usually buy some cool PJs and a $5 Old Navy tee (sadly, not this year), I get to eat chocolate, bake yummies, go out on a date, recieve a meaningful gift and watch a chick flick! Back in the day I had some pretty crazy adventures in high school on Valentines day, which included things like: the Kingsmen, scavenger hunts, sledding, etc... all on video too.

This year February has had a couple extra cool events. Such as a High Tea, a baby shower, and a stampin' up party. All very fun things. Here are some pictures and comments of all said events.

This is Tawona and I
We are getting a pedicure
in honor of our 25th bday.
We are both pregnant with girls!

Here is me at the Tea
with my sister in law Traci.
this was a family Celebration
of Baby-Sister

Here is the Hostess and I.
Ashley chose to have the event
at the Queen Mary Tea Room
it was lovely!

Here is the Wilson gang on my Birthday.
We ate a Agua Verde.
Service was bad that day,
We will have to try it again sometime.

Ginny looks a little stunned here,
but I garentee that she enjoyed
singing "happy too you mommy!"
and munching on the yellow cupcakes
with chocolate frosting. (I made them).
This was the baby shower.
Here is the whole group!
Thanks again Ladies!

These are the adorable onesies
we all decorated.

Ginny presents daddy with her Valentine
she pretty much made it herself
just a little mommy supervision.

Here she is opening her Valentine gift. Last year she got
Snuggle Puppy by Sandra Boynton
This year Good Night Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann
You can tell she was very excited,
Not to mention she had crazy hair all day!

And Ben and I went out to McCormick's and
Schmicks. Had a lovely dinner and view of downtown, sorry its not to clear in the photo.
I gave Ben small scrapbook titled
"The Story of Us." And Ben wrote me a song
I got a little misty eyed when
he preformed it for me. :)

Lastly was the stampin up party last saturday. You can look at the cards we made on the card blog. I hope you all had a lovely Valentines day and a happy February so far.
