Sometimes, once in a while, kind of often……….okay, MOST OF THE TIME, I procrastinate.  And most of the time, means, not EVERY time (there is some hope deep down inside…) but it’s a dirty rotten habit of mine that I’m truly working on.  Dentist appointments and play dates included! :)   Soooooo…..Valentine’s Day is coming up.  And for some reason, I have so much fun […]
