Valentines Day- Monogramming, A Tablescape and A Goody Basket

So last night I was 'that mom' monogramming this valentine chair backpack for K's party today....

turned out pretty cute, no?
(good thing, because my machine was driving me nuts)

see, you slip the little valentines in the top, so stinking fun!

aaaand....k thought it was a backpack for HER.  
(yes, she's half naked, thats how we roll sometimes...)
It actually did fit her pretty well, ha!
All in all, not a bad $19 item from Pottery Barn Kids!

I decided to set a cute little valentine party tablescape 
(with stuff I already had)
I think we will have fun eating here tonight!
Maybe we'll order one of those heart shaped pizzas...

The cookies are SO good and are from 
Piece de Resistance, The little cake I just randomly picked up at Publix yesterday (good thing I took a few pics, as my husband snagged it and ate it all up!)

K's valentine goody basket
(I collect stuff on sale/good deal whenever I see it, some of it is half off after Vday last year, I'm crafty like that)

I can't WAIT for K to wake up!!!!
(I'll post her outfit later today!)
