Humble Gratitude

This has been one of the best weekends with my hubby. He got home on Thursday night, Friday he had to work from home, I ran errands and then we went out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. Not a real expensive place just a comfy, good italian food.....where we know most of the wait staff....says a lot doesn't it?

We had the staff in an uproar this time. We are into history and trivia so, we wanted to pass the time waiting for our food by trying to remember the placement of each state in relation to all the other states and the capitals. We started writing on our place all the states in the right order but, were stumped on some of the capitals. So we asked our waitress and busser if they knew.....they didn't. But then they started asking some of the other staff...we were stumped on Montana, West Virginia and South Carolina's capitals. I know what they are now....see if you know them. We made our waitress laugh and she made the comment that we made her week!

For Valentine's Day we had a very relaxed one....hung around the house, took a nap, exchanged cards (he gave me a mushy one that made me cry), fixed some Kansas City Strip Steaks for dinner and watched a movie....Iron Man. Normally he gets me a funny one, so it was a nice change. Hope you had a nice Valentine's Day too.

Now to the card....this is a SFYTT Jan 10 challenge. My SCS friend, Michelle from western Indiana, turned me on to it. I liked the layout because it did challenge me to do something I would not normally do....that is design with more. Hope you like it!

  3. Your card is so pretty. I love the button placement, and these colors together. I knew Montana (we have a neighbor named Helena) and SC (because my brother lived in Columbia for a while) but I couldn't remember West Virginia! Thank goodness for Google!
