Ryan’s youngest sister, Noelle, is a fantastic artist. I asked her to make some signs for the wedding. I remembered Jake making a really cool sign for me with each letter being a different animal or character. Ryan and I thought it would be cool if Jake designed the fun and games sign.

We got everyone at the house to help paint. It was pretty awesome. The signs turned out great!

A couple days later was Valentine’s day. We celebrated Monday and Tuesday. Ryan had planned to bring me a picnic to work but I had meetings so he made the meal Monday night. It was amazing!!!

I really wanted to make a cool sign for our wedding. Ryan and I went to home depot and got wood and nails and then headed over to Joanne’s for yarn. Check it out!

This was a great week. Kathleen is such a thoughtful lady. She sent me a beautifully wrapped present. What girl doesn’t like a pretty present. What was even better was what was inside. Awww so happy!
