Engagement Photos and Valentine's Day!

Waaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!
I am sick. Eyes hurt, nose hurts, throat hurts. EVERYTHING HURTS... Wahhhhhh!!!!

Okay... done being a baby.

This is my last night on vacation at my parents' house and I am happy to say that it has been a BLAST! Parks and I celebrated our very first Christmas together, we visited so many friends and family andddd we took our engagement pictures! Eeeek!

We just took them yesterday but our awesome photographers already had some *sneak-peak* shots up on their facebook page. These are my 2 faves!
Tehehehe... I can't help but giggle, because I love them so dang much!!
 Kendra and Dan over at Lightshed Photography Studio did an amazing job - especially because I was so sick and it was fa-reezing outside! You can't even tell though can ya?!? You can click on either of the pictures to head to their facebook page and see some more of our pictures. I can't wait to see them all when they're finished!

Since I have been coughing up a lung the past 24 hours, I thought I would hunker down and finally finish my Valentine's Day pack I started a few weeks ago! I just uploaded it to TPT and I thought I would show you some highlights:
 

This pack has some different writing activities and crafts, perfect for Valentine's Day!
^^ some of the writing prompts included ^^
3 different crafts:
{Let's Make a Love Potion}:
A "how-to" writing craft in which students make a love potion for their Valentine using some of their Valentine's favorites treats and sweets!

 {Love Tickets}:
Super-easy coupon gifts for students to give as a parent gift! Students can use the pre-made tickets or write their own coupons for their parents to redeem.


 {Spread the Love - Community Building Activity}:
This is a follow-up activity to my Stocking Stuffers freebie we used last month. My kids l-o-v-e-d spreading the holiday cheer around the classroom and reading their notes so much that I thought I would continue the notes, but with a little twist! Instead of stockings, we now have our hearts that can be filled with notes!

To see the whole pack in more detail, download the preview at my TPT store.
