You're the Cream in My Coffee

Last year, I ran across the sweetest love song.  It was written by Nat King Cole, who I grew up listening to, thanks to my Dad.  He wrote so many songs that are well known, but this one I had never heard before.  It's sweet, and simple, and it sums up how I feel about my valentine and my kiddos.
It's called, "You're the Cream in My Coffee."


I discovered that sweet song as I was drooling over one of my favorite jewelry websites. 
I LOVE Lisa Leonard's stuff.  All of it.  It's very me. 
Anyway, she had a necklace that I fell in love with, called "You're the Cream in My Coffee" and thanks to my very sweet husband, he put it around my neck last night! 
I love it so much...All of my favorite people around my neck and a cup of coffee too :) What a guy!
And a little pearl.  I love pearls. 
We were very blessed to get a night out last night, with one of our favorite tag-a-longs too! 
Carter is so easy to take out, so we were happy to have him along :)
Travis, filling Carter in on "how to take a lady out on a date!" 
Never too young to teach little boys how to treat their future spouse :)
He's doing great with a bottle, which is a great source of freedom for me here and there!
I truly loved having a little extra time for Trav and I to spend with Carter.
He was sweet enough to sit happily in his car seat while we ate our dinner :)
And oh what a dinner it was!  That is my Macadamia Nut Chicken and in the background is Trav's Hawaiian Ribeye...Amazing.  We ate at a restaurant we really have grown to love, Kona Grill.  We don't get there very often, but when we do, it's a treat!
Carter did indulge us for a trip to the mall, followed by some good "talk time" (my request) at Starbucks...where we shared a little red velvet cupcake :)
Love my valentine
We left Ava in good hands while we were gone.
Jenna and Tyler graciously shared their Valentine's day with Miss Ava :)
We are very grateful for that, thanks you guys!
After we got back, we let Ava dig into her stash of gifts...she totally made out!
Some little treats for my valentines
A strawberry shortcake coloring book for Ava...
...and a book for Carter.
Maybe next year we can carve out some time for a little Daddy-Daughter date too :)
Missed this girl all night, but I know she had some great fun without us!
What a sweet day with the ones I love most...
Yep, they are truly the cream in my coffee!
