Valentine's Day/Weekend Celebration

Mr. "Live Well" surprised me and took me away on a wonderful trip for Valentine's Day. When I walked into the hotel room, I found rose petals scattered on the floor!

Rose petals on the bed and dark European chocolate scattered on there as well...does it get better than that?!

Oh, yes it does when you also have a box of Rocky Mountain Chocolates...loaded with ALL of my favorites...dark chocolate toffee, peanut butter cups, and cream filled. YUMM-O

The most stunning bouquet of flowers from Bloomers. I think that sweet husband of mine thought of everything!

Besides all that love, Nedra from Cactus Needle hosted a beautiful Valentine dinner for us on Sunday. We had a wonderful dinner with family and friends!

While we were on our trip we had the opportunity to watch our daughter play basketball a couple of times. When we drove up to the gym, the first thing we saw was a large pole out front that has her photo wrapped around it. How fun!

After every game she has to have her ankles wrapped in ice from her injury I showed you back in November. She walks around with ice bags on her feet, freezing to death and dripping every where she goes. It's uncomfortable and sometimes embarrassing as water runs down in a stream from her seat.

When the players leave the locker rooms and come out onto the floor to play there is a tunnel that they run thru...the tunnel is wallpapered with this enormous photo of her dribbling.

During the game when a time out is called or there's a media break, they have fans come out onto the floor and perform funny tricks. People toss frisbee's, try to shoot the ball with a bungie cord keeping them teathered to someone else and hula hooping. Our oldest daughter tried her hand or should I say hips at the hula hoop. She won an hour massage for beating the clock and her embarrassment! Needless to say we had a wonderful Valentine's weekend and enjoyed every minute of it! Live Well


  1. It was so fun having you here! It was a wonderful Valentines Day for us too, especially to share with your family.
    Put us on your clendar for Valentines Day next year. I will try and come up with wild boar, wild apples and wild onions. And for entertainment I will find a vat full of monkeys.

  2. What a wondrful, thoughtful man that you have for a husband. You deserve every minute of him spoiling you! It is so nice that you had such a fantastic weekend with your family and friends. I don't think it could get any better than that!!!
    Your basketball playing daughter is a beauty and it looks like she is a pro from the pictures. Congratulations to the hoola hoop queen... tell her Hi for me!
    Tomorrow is the big send off and I am dying! I will miss him terribly... but I am so happy for him! :)

  3. What a fun weekend. I love the pictures of Kaitlyn, she must be doing great.

  4. Awesome post! How cute is Brad! I love it. That is so darn cute I can hardly stand it. Kate and Jen look awesome as well. :)
