Pink Puffy Hearts

Tis the season of pink, red and white hearts and for lovers to be all lovey dovey. 

While I love my family and I don't mind kid snuggles and the occasional squeeze from my boo, anyone who knows me will tell you that I am the LEAST touchy feeley person on the planet.

I get super awkward when people get too close to me. Like HELLO personal space and please stay OUT of my bubble while you are at it! Bad breath {or early morning coffee breath} grosses me out so if you are close enough for me to smell it, I may freak out - big time.

While I do think that my desire for space has always been there, I do think its exacerbated since I am nursing and constantly either have a baby hanging off of me or a 2 year old climbing on me. Momma wants her space.

So yes, I have always been like this but the older I get, the weirder I get and the less I want to be touched. The ONLY thing I like is when people play with my hair - and even then some people just don't do it right. {Natasha and Rachel are the best hair players out there and Emily falls in line next. Fran Happ is a fave too.}

I do like getting massages and that doesn't weird me out because its their job. I like pedicures but I don't like other people touching my feet. I hate for people to touch my knees and if you are going to squeeze or touch my shoulders, don't do it lightly. It gives me the willies. I am quite ticklish but being tickled only makes me either mad or tee tee in my pants - and if I tee tee, I will really be mad, so really its a lose, lose situation.

....are you feeling sorry for CT3 yet??

Our small group did a crash course in the 5 Love Languages and I personally have taken the test a few times. While I fluctuate between "gift giving" and "acts of service" as my number one and "words of affirmation" and "quality time," one thing has consistently been in dead last - "physical touch." Like last time I took the test, I had a big fat do you feel sorry for him!? Poor boy has to keep a 5 foot radius from me. ;)

Well, since its the season of love and since I keep coming across cute hearts and lovey dovey things on Pinterest, and since my sister gave me a fancy paper cutter for Christmas, I am going to try to kick it up a notch around here.

Don't go getting any crazy ideas. I am just going to make a 14 Days of Valentines thing and maybe a cute "Happy Valentines" banner to hang. I may splurge on some pink and red flowers too and I think I have a few things up in the attic that I could set out.

Here's to cute decor, fun dates and lots of pink and red. What are you doing to decorate? Do you have a hot date planned? Send ideas my way!

from The TomKat Studio....LOVE her stuff and where lots of Anne Margaret's Brown Bear Birthday stuff came from!


I am sure that I will get some baby snuggles at some point in the night - although yesterday CT4 slept from 10:30 PM til 8 AM! WOO HOO! Those baby snuggles I am okay with. I am now off to snuggle the hubby and my little Anne Margaret and my Champ man....all at once you ask?

Yep. They are all currently crammed in the bed with me. {Anne Margaret is not feeling well. This is not a normal occurrence!}

Pink and red puffy heart love to you! Pin It Now!


  1. I am with you 100%. I HATE to be touched. Except by my son. Yes, even my husband has to deal with my phobias. Though it was worse during when I was breastfeeding.

  2. haha you're too funny. happy vday prep ;)

  3. My most common rant at my children...."GET OUT OF MY FACE!"
