Wednesday Love! And more!

It's time once again to link up with Jamie for WILW.

This week, of course, I am loving how my wonderful husband spoiled me for Valentine's Day despite being on the other side of the globe. I am so very lucky. These arrived on my doorstep Monday, so pretty! The bear was for Shaun. This was on top of the Tiffany's necklace that came a bit early. (It was actually supposed to come LATE so the card on the flowers actually says, 'And you thought it was going to come in a blue box?' or something like that. Such a goofball. I love him.)

I am loving Vera Bradley. Anyone else a fan? If you caught my Scavenger Hunt post Sunday, you might remember that I said I bought 4 gently used bags and a wallet for $40, and I am addicted. I have been wanting one for a little while, but I don't like spending money on myself. It's been a long time that I've had a purse that I was really in love with, but I am in love with ALL of these. I'll repost this picture again, its definitely my favorite.

I am loving these pictures, taken on Valentine's Day. The first were from an attempt to take a picture for daddy holding a heart that says we love you. The last one was from making brownies for daddy! He was such a big help. With a little assistance from mommy, he helped pour in all the ingredients. How fun!!

I am loving this giveaway for $50 to Willow House over at one of my very favorite blogs, The Undomestic Momma. I have already found several items I would love to buy. Check these out:

Head on over to win!!

Also linking up for:

{one} what is your favorite breakfast food?
I actually love breakfast food...but I cannot usually eat it for breakfast or I feel sick for the rest of the day..no fun! But for lunch or dinner, I could eat IHOP daily! Mmmmm...

{two} how many pairs of shoes do you currently own?
Hmmm...that's a very good question. I just counted 25, not sure if I got them all though. lol. What can I say, I like shoes!!

{three} city or country?
Having lived in both...I'm still uncertain. I am not an outdoorsy person and I am afraid of animals. Most people who didn't know are a bit surprised to find that I grew up in the boondocks. Haha. We lived back on an old gravel, dead end road, nothing around (our town didn't even have a post office). But I liked the peacefulness of it! I hated the traffic noises when we lived out in town, and I didn't feel as safe there either. We live on base now, in a very quiet neighborhood and I love it. And we're still close to everything, which is very nice.
That being said, we already know exactly where we are building our future home once Matt gets out of the military (12-13 years from now) and it is in the country, but I love the spot we have chosen and I cannot wait to make this dream happen:)

{four} what is your favorite part of your job?
As a mommy? Seeing Shaun learn and grow. :)

{five} what is your favorite junk food to snack on?
Chips. Seriously.

{six} have you ever been mentioned in the newspaper?
Yes. I had my picture in the local paper when I was little, and in high school I was quoted when our English academic team made it to state!

{seven} do you use post-it notes?
Haha, yes. My husband actually took a picture of my Blackberry with a post it sticking to it. To be fair, my phone was broke and we were on our way to fix it...but even still I prefer good old fashioned post its to the memo feature on my phone.

{eight} do you have freckles?

{nine} is it okay for men to wear pink?
Hmm, not my cup of tea, but if they can pull it off, why not!

{ten} when was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
Do cards count? Then yesterday. Otherwise, I'm not sure.
