Remember in school, we would participate in the Valentine's Day Candy Grams? 
Well i thought why not bring it to blogland? 
Of course it's only going to work if there are participants.
Basically here is how it would work.


1.Send me an email if you are interested 
with a few items you want on your list 
2. Bloggers would be paired up
3. Purchase an item on the list and spruce it up with other fun items
4. Spend at least $20 before packaging and shipping
5. Send your package at least ten days before Feb. 14th, 2012 in order for the item to be received on time
6. We would participate in a link up February 13th, 2012
 to reveal all our goodies
7. Great way to add a little extra fun to someone's Valentine's Day!

Feel free to send me an email at dapancakes@gmail.com if you are interested in participating.
NOW GO AHEAD AND SEND ME AN EMAIL!

"At home, watching movies, eating, talking and laughing"
Isn't it the best way to spend time with our loved ones? This is pretty much what my weekend is going to be like :P


it must be (so)... liberating

This Cookn' Mom said...

I can eat rice for every meal too. I have to remind myself that my husband only likes it a couple of times a month.

Amanda said...

Love this post, and I love the idea of Valentine's Day candy grams!

Nicole said...

I love the saying, "Let go & let God." It's also one of my favorites, right after "Be still and know that I am God." And the one thing I can't leave my house without is chapstick, because I too HATE having chapped lips.

What did you get your Masters degree in?! That is a great accomplishment!

Bravoe Runway said...

You are just like my Mom, favorite colour is yellow. Congratulations on completing your Master's!

Dana said...

I am a social worker as well. Just like Bravoe Runway my mom's favorite color is yellow as well. Love your other responses. Thanks for playing.

Jenn McClure- Caldwell said...

I love your Candy Gram idea. Too bad I'm in Afghanistan. I wouldn't get here in time to finish it or there in time for the 13th... Mail is so slow! Maybe next time!

Congrats on finishing your Master's Degree :)

<3 Jenn

Nellie said...

I totally agree with braxton family values...not sure how I got addicted but I love it! And my addiction is also rice!
Having your masters is such a great tool to have in your arsenal!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

I'm the same way about having chapped lips. I NEED to have chapstick with me at all times.

Earl-Leigh said...

I love date nights at home with my hubby too! Its more intimate than going out sometimes.

Mrs. H said...

I love that your favorite color is yellow. I used to have a yellow bug (VW Beetle) and I bought it for that same reason just looking at it would make me smile. I like this cute V-Day link up idea. Very unique!

Ticka said...

Love the Valentine idea!!

Brandi said...

yellow is my favorite color too! such a happy color!
