Cathy's Amour Valentine Swap

Happy Valentines Day !!!

I have a Kazillion pictures to share from my swap with Miss Cathy, Hostess of the " Amour Valentine Swap" but first, I have to say a few things about the Olympics.

The Winter Olympics are the BEST, Love them and wait patiently every four years to watch them. However, I have a few observations that aren't so nice. First, Curling. Ummmmmmm.......Curling, What's up with THAT ???? lol ! :) There are currently 100 "Curlers", "Curler'ers", "Curling'ers" at the Olympics. Yep, One Hundred. Did I miss the whole Curling Popularity Movement ? I need to get OUT more, lol !! :) Second, KD Lang, Girlfriend, LOSE THE SUIT !! lol !!! You remind me of an ex-boyfriend back in the single days, and that is just TOO weird. :) Really though, did you hear her sing Hallelujah ? Oh my, SO beautiful !!! Loved it !! Loved it !!! :) Third, Carrot Top. You, little red head boy with the Snowboard, Shaun, is that your name ? Is Carrot Top your brother ??? Cause you Really !!! :) Fourth, also not so nice..... Wayne Gretsky.

WAYNE, when did you/ME get so OLD ???? When did that happen ???? Just yesterday You/I were in the prime of youth, What happened ??? :(

Lol !! Ok, on with the pictures. Ladies, I have still been so ill with this DUMB disease still and when I received all of the goodies from Miss Cathy I just sat here and cried, and then cried again as I received THREE other packages in the mail recently. ( I will share those on Tues ) I am SO not worthy !!! I know I keep saying how SPOILED I am, but I am !!! I TRULY cant believe everything she sent me, it just went on for DAYS unwrapping all of the gifts. :) I will stop talking because there are a ton of pic's AND links to the other swappers and you could be here all day on my blog if I don't !! :)

Ok, here is the Box and some Sweets I sent her , to see the Rest, go visit Cathy's Blog :) :

Glad to see you made it to the computer :) we would all miss you too much if you didn't. Have a happy Valentine's Day full of LOVE and laughter!
