Growing in Unity Day THREE!

Hi Peeps!  How was your Valentines Day?
Mine was PERFECT!  I have to share how funny my husband is!
He is a jewelry man, he has given me so many pieces of jewelry and I always LOVE them.  He then went to buying gift cards to scrapbook stores [until they all closed] to now saying Just check out at Unity LOL  That man KNOWS what I LOVE!!
Well today for fun, he wanted to surprise me!
I can not tell you how big this cookie is!  It must be like 16 x 16!  It is the largest cookie I have EVER seen!  I find this so romantic, the gesture is so sweet.  I am not much of a cookie fan truth be told.  He knows this.  Honestly in the last 16 years I am not sure he has ever even seen me eat a cookie.  We LOVE root beer floats and ice cream in any form.  He was actually disappointed that we did not have vanilla ice-cream to put on this cookie LOL  But everyone loves a heart cookie, and with a love note??? SWOON!  {side note, the cookie is AWESOME it is so soft and so perfect I am going to demand one next year! I think I lost my ice-cream birthday cake fans and they are going to want giant yummy cookies for their birthday from now on!}
I know, I know, you want the funny part!  I HAVE to build it up so you get how funny the man I adore really is!  The girls are asking about my favorite gifts ever from him and I am finishing up getting dinner on the table.  Bryan is back in our room changing clothes so I shout down the hall... HONEY, I think this is the first food you have ever given me!    Our house is small he can hear what the girls and I are talking about.  He responds with "YOU SHOULD LOOK IN THE REFRIGERATOR"!
THAT man makes me laugh!
He makes me laugh until I cry all the time!
About 30 minutes later he was putting away the dry dishes [our dishwasher is broken and I am not talking about ME  LOL]
He asked me where the garlic press went.  [So maybe he only helps on Valentines Day LOL]  I'M KIDDING!!  He says "Where does this go?"  I say "In the drawer."  He says, "OK, I'll play your SILLY little game!  Which drawer?"
That was when I hit the floor.
Seriously our house is a total mess.  I can keep you from starving to death but you will rarely, if EVER shout THAT WAS THE BEST MEAL EVER!  You will not go home thinking, I am going to decorate like she did!!  What will happen is you will LAUGH quite possibly until you cry.  You might also fall down over a toy.  I still have bruises from a completely stellar digger I took over a princess cash register in front of Morgan's friend I had never met a couple of weeks ago! 
Now, seriously!!  If you want PERFECTION go to Unity and buy some stamps!  Get an embossing gun and some brown powder, it goes with EVERYTHING!  I'd also bet my stamps you will laugh until you cry there too! :)  I will need to be present to keep up my end of the deal.
This is the card that posted on Unity's Blog today!  So easy and so fun!  Embossing the sucker from Sucks To Get Old, is BIG FUN!  I love cutting it out and popping it up.  At the release party we had a HUGE chat with a ton of people.  Coloring came up and I acted like a coward and didn't talk.  BUT I read... like a maniac.  I made this card with Sharpies and Bic permanent markers, thanks to those ladies!  I seriously said OUTLOUD, the worst case scenario is I get to emboss more suckers!  I went to town!  I colored the sticks, the bows, and the solid stripes!  I stamped them all on printed Kraft paper!  So easy, so fast!  If you need me I'll be embossing and coloring.... if I don't like the color of the Sharpie, I'll be adding my glitter pen and fixing it!  SO MUCH FUN!!  The GOOD LUCK with that is from the {ippity} itty bitty Preggo-GOOD LUCK!
Thank you so much for stopping by and please go stamp!  You will love it!  It is even better if you buy {ippity}and emboss!  Please pick me as your chick and please come over for a slice of cookie! Most importantly, if you see my way above average husband, and his funny, love letter giant cookie givin', so DANG much fun to look at self , PLEASE tell him how much I love him!  I do not think he has ever even seen my blog! 
See you tomorrow!  Leave  comment for the chance to win 2 itty bitty's!

Noelle, I am laughing at your story. Sounds a lot like my house and the laughter of silly things that happen on a daily basis. Too Funny! You don't have to tell me twice to go stamp. After I finish commenting on all your GIU projects, that is exactly what I intend to do.
Hugz,
Jessica
