I goofed big time!

So I thought it was kind of weird that I did not get one comment on my Valentine's post, especially after I shared about my sweet hubbie, and I just figured out why....I posted it on my class blog! OOPS!
I have NOT been myself this year. Anyway, here is the post  I made on V-Day....

I was kind of dreading today.  My class gets riled up at the SLIGHTEST bit of excitement and I caught that annoying cold that has been going around so I'm not 100%.

But my day started off nicely with a delicious dijon mustard quiche courtesy of the PTA. Our moms bring us a nice treat spread once a month. Aren't they sweet?

We made these adorable Splats from the amazing Cara and wrote about when we felt loved.
We graphed conversation hearts, made patterns,
and played battleship. These printables are from the wonderful Rachelle.

We played pin the lips on the teacher. Idea and lips from the terrific  Teacher Wife. Not sure why I have blue hair? All the gray hairs I have gotten from this class are missing, that is for certain!

My room mom found these next two ideas. The object of this game is to see how many M&Ms you can move from one cup to the other by straw suction.
For this relay the kids stepped on a big heart, moving the one behind them in front for each next step. My boys thought it was fun to throw the heart which made for quite a challenging next step!

We had had various art tables. I had this pattern from last year but I saw Christina posted a template you can grab if you want to put it away for next year. It is challenging for firsties. Here you see one of my crafty girls helping a friend.

And when I came home, excited to get in my jammies after a crazy day, look what was waiting for me...
I mentioned the other day that I wish we could afford a trip to Red Lobster because I was craving cheddar bay biscuits. So my sweet husband made surf and turf (bacon-wrapped no less) and stopped by Red Lobster to buy the biscuits.  He also bought red roses which he was NOT supposed to do. If you are wondering why the card has a G, he has called me his Guinevere since we were dating and read that Jennifer is the modern name for it. Isn't he romantic?

I hope your day was just as sweet.
