A Pizza My Heart

This is my THIRD post today - - - 
and now I have to get back to schoolwork!

The first thing I did when I got up was pull out various chocolate/Valentine's gifts and get my guys cards signed and ready for envelopes.  Unfortunately...I didn't have a card for Erik (my 14-year old).  I swear that I took inventory last weekend when I was getting Valentines ready to mail.  All I can think of is that I knew that I had a stamp set I had gotten just for Erik so I ticked his card off my mental list and promptly forgot about it.

At the point that I figured this out, the clock showed 12 minutes until he was up.  I am not a fast card-maker - but didn't have a choice this morning.  I cut corners by coloring only part of an image. (Luckily, it's really cute so stands alone well).  It's a cute stamp set and just perfect for my son who is quite a foodie.  He loves a huge variety of foods, but really isn't discriminating.  He'll happily eat high-end sushi, he'll seek out new restaurants and try anything unique, but he's equally happy sitting at Waffle House.  He also loves Food Network and The Cooking Channel.  He loves the shows with brick ovens and pizzas. This pizza guy was a great choice for him!

Pizza My Heart

Update: He smiled sweetly at the card, but then he saw his candy gift and his eyes popped.  I don't think I ever knew quite how regional candy could be.  Erik found a package of these at a cute little candy store up in the mountains, but we've never seen them in the Denver area.  (We have Pop Rocks but not Dips.)  Luckily, Amazon has everything - so he's got all he can eat - hopefully not all this weekend!

Wow, school, three posts, taking care of your family: your days are utterly jam-packed! Such energy is inspiring! Your Valentine card and treats for your son have me smiling. He's one lucky boy to have you as his mom! We watch Food Network shows as well, with my favourites being anything with Robert Irvine, along with Chopped and Top Chef (Canadian and US versions). Cooking not my thing, but watching works (no clean up...)
