Valentimes with My Valentine

Hello Blogger it's been a while! My life is exciting and fun to me, but I find it hard to believe the 3 people who follow me on here find it that fascinating. Lately, I have been training for the half marathon March 6 here in Little Rock and watching Alias. Can you say OBSESSED? But more about Sydney Bristow in her own post. I think she deserves it.

I had such a great Valentines weekend! I left last Thursday and went to Collierville to see my family! Mom, Lauren and I did a little shopping. I finally purchased a pair of "skinny" jeans from Banana Republic thanks to a tip I got from the Pioneer Woman whom I follow on Twitter. Well, they are actually "straight leg" jeans. When you have big ole' muscular cheerleader legs like I do, "skinny" jeans are not an option. But, I am so thankful for my strong legs that God has given me!!! :) Anyhoo, I also got a super cute purse at Franchesca's that I am thrilled to tote around town. We went out Saturday and trained all 8 dogs at Shelby Farms! It took 2 trucks and a dog trailer to haul us out there, but we made it. We had a blast. Lunch was at Cracker Barrel. Ken Gilbert and I just LOVE Cracker Barrel. SO silly. Worship at Grace Crossing was amazing as always. If you are ever in Memphis on a Sunday morning, that is where you have to worship. I can say it is without question the only place I have ever felt "safe" to worship.

So, I made the long trek home in the rain Sunday after lunch- after helping my sweet brother-in-law pick out a beautiful diamond neck less for my sister! Of course, I didn't pick it out. He has her nailed down and knew exactly what she would like. He picked it out and I watched! Matt was not able to go with me due to his tax schedule! I am so proud of how hard he works for us. I like to make an annual trip with out him and visit my family alone. He is so sweet to tell me do this too! Absence makes the heart grow fonder. We (meaning me and the doggies) got home and he said, "Ok, we can either eat somewhere quick and go see Percy Jackson (we both read the book) or we could go eat somewhere nice! You pick, sweet thang!" Ok he didn't say the last part, but he did let me pick. We went to Wendy's and saw Percy Jackson and just had the BEST TIME! Isn't that silly? But we did! I love spending time with him so much! We are not hard to please and he is always so silly and entertaining to me. He also bought me more of my perfume- VERA WANG and a sweet, sweet card. Matt Summitt is my best friend in the world and the best Valentine a girl could want!


  1. That's a really sweet post Lana! I like keeping up with you guys! And thanks for introducing me to Pioneer Woman...she's the coolest!

  2. I hope Matt read all your sweet words!!! Love that you had a fabulous time with your family...and loved even more that you can appreciate not only the time you and Matt spend together but apart too. You're a wonderful wife & friend!!

    Nothing like a good fast food dinner date!! Sometimes those are the BEST! :)
