Can you believe it's February already? This month is a special one. It's my birthday, valentine's day, and John and I will be celebrating our 6 month anniversary also! I can't believe it's almost been half a year already.
Over the weekend I drove down to Pocatello to judge a cheer competition. It was lots of fun and I was able to spend some time with my parents also. My dad and I went to cafe rio for dinner and watched the Jazz game together. The next day, my mom and I went shopping for an early birthday present. We picked out some fabric so I could make a quilt for John and I. We only have a comforter, and it would be nice to have an extra blanket for these cold winter nights. I hope to get started on the cutting on Saturday. What do you think of the fabric I picked out?
I'm hoping to do something a bit like this chevron quilt. I don't know what it is about chevron stripes lately but I love them. It will make for a cute design and some great snuggling.
I've never really done anything for the superbowl but this year John and I went over to watch it with some of his old roommates. I can't say I was too enthused over the game, but I did make a really yummy dip that everyone loved! Of course I got it from pinterest, along with all of my other great ideas I would love to claim as my own. Check the recipe out HERE.
It was absolutely delicious! Who can't resist a chocolate chip dip? Especially when cream cheese is involved. I used teddy grahams to dip. Next time I do it I will probably just use graham cracker squares though because the teddy grahams were rather small. Seriously though, it was so simple and such a success. I dare you to try it.
John isn't really sure what to get me for my birthday/valentine's day so I told him I would make him a wishlist. Don't worry, I would rather know that I will love what I'm getting, instead of hope that he gets me something good. So here it is!
Even though I was apart from John for the weekend, my favorite part was staying up late texting him. He still gives me all sorts of butterflies inside. I was even lucky enough to come home to a completely clean house. That's right, dishes done, bed made, clothes picked up from the floor. I think I'll keep him around ;)
