Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. What are you doing to celebrate?
Q has been begging and pleading for the My Pillow Pet Valentine Dog that she saw at Walgreens when we were there picking up prescriptions in January. The shipment had just arrived and she made the photo manager (they were displayed by the photo counter) promise that there would be one for her when her mom was ready to buy. Every time we even go within a half mile of Walgreens she asks if we can go see if they have any left.
Little does she know that I had my husband pick one up for her on the way home from work!
And guess what?! No carbs!
Here are a few Valentine-related posts of interest.
