I made it!

I survived my crazy-busy week! Thankfully it's officially over for me, and my weekend begins tonight! It's a four-day weekend too because our kids are out of school tomorrow and Monday! I am telling you, I think need 4 days to recover from all of the busy-ness of this week.

Well, we did NOT get that snow day everyone was oh-so-sure about yesterday. Apparently the storm shifted west and instead of 4-8 inches, we got maybe 1 or 2 inches. We did have a two-hour delay this morning, which was wonderful because it afforded me the time to make these boxes for the kids' teachers! I guess I sorta bought into everyone's excitment that today would be a snow day and I just kept procrastinating. Believe me, I was working fast and furiously this morning to get them finished, but didn't they turn out cute?? We filled them with Dove chocolates because I understand they're pretty tasty!



*These boxes are super-simple to make, and if you want the instructions, click here.

I've been running since I dropped the kids off at school this morning, so when John called and asked if he could take us out for dinner tonight, I just said "yes, I'd love that, and thanks for being sensitive to my complete exhaustion". He should be home in a little while and we're going to head to our favorite mexican place. I hope to come home afterwards (pleasantly full) and put on my warm, comfy pjs, and watch LOST with my favorite Valentine.

I also plan on staying home all day tomorrow. I may even stay in my pajamas all day too.

Happy weekend to you too!

Darling Boxes!!!! I"ll be sure to make them soon! A.d.o.r.a.b.l.e.

We're going to have pizza tonight and veg in front of Survivor. I feel like a Survivor after this week, too. HIstory Boy had oral surgery yesterday, but thankfully, he's doing great. Still...a momma worries.

I hope dinner is fun for you. xxxooogretchen

These boxes are great. I'll have to make some soon.

Hope you enjoyed your Valentine evening....sounds like a good plan. My hubby and I are sitting on the couch in a quiet house (kids in bed).

Mer,

Those turned out so cute. I wish you hadn't posted them again, though, because now I really want to add that project to my list! =)

Hope you enjoyed your fiesta last night.

Those boxes are so cute! I don't know of a time when my hubby has suggested we eat out and I said no. Brownie points to your husband for recognizing your exhaustion!

Hi, Meredith~
I don't know you, but you left a comment on my blog earlier today. Thank you so much for your words. I also noticed some things we have in common (my husband & I used to live in CO; I'm from AR; love Lost; and love Peace Like a River--it's one of my top 5 books). I'm glad our paths crossed, if only just for a moment!

Those boxes are adorable! I'm going to try to make one tonight. I hope I can figure this out!!! Wish me luck!

mer,

Your comment made me laugh! When I woke up this morning I thought of you, and dcrmom of Musings of a Housewife, and my friend meh in Michigan, because on Monday I "bragged" to all three of you about my warm weather.

When it started snowing here, I thought, "this is totally my fault for talking smack!"

;)

Did you get to stay in your Pj's today? I hope so! Have a great weekend!

Oh these are adorable! What a great surprise to the teachers!!

Barb said...

They're adorable, Mer. I'll bet the kids' teachers were so pleased with them, especially since unlike me, most people actually LIKE chocolate. LOL

I hope you did. I hope you stayed in your pj's all day long.

I love the boxes! I bookmarked the tutorial so I can make them for end of the year gifts! Thanks for sharing.
