Abigail was AMAZING. Seriously, I was so proud. She started off holding her friends hands but after she warmed up a bit she was off by herself. Round and round the rink.
Also, I just really want to mention that since this was “homeschool skate” I think the roller rink really amps it up with the old playlist. I mean, you don’t get to roller blade to “God Bless The USA” and “Celebrate, Jesus Celebrate!” any old day. lolol.
They gave her a ring pop just because it was close to Valentine’s Day and when we got in the car afterwards Abigail loudly proclaimed, “Mom, that was sooo awesome!!” So we’re definitely going to go back again soon!
We raced home and got the house ready because I was hosting ladies fellowship at our house that night! Wine and cheese night, holla!
On Sunday morning we made sure to bust out allll our pink, purple, and red for the big V day.
And I had to make sure to wear my red Charming Charlie’s flats that I break out every 4th of July, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day. Ha!
On Sunday we kept it low key. Jim surprised all of us with small little things he thought we would like. Starbucks for me, a balloon for Mabel, a chocolate rose for Abigail…..oh and a ridiculous farting card.
He knew she would love it. And he was right, she surely did.
Oh, and he hung up my living room “curtains”! (Two panels of linen fabric clipped into curtain rings. Winning!)
It was really simple and sweet and an all around great Valentine’s Day.
And just in case you missed this gem on social media earlier in the week. Here is the glory that was Jim and my very first Valentine’s Day together back in 2004. Oof. And lol.
