Craft for a Super Bowl Sunday

Yesterday I agreed to "do homework" with a friend from school. No, I am not quotation happy tonight. She told her husband that we were going to do homework so that she could work on a Valentine craft for him. We stopped at Hobby Lobby to grab some supplies for her and I picked up things that I needed including materials to make this lovely craft:

My favorite love quote. Thank you John Lennon.
Isn't it adorable? I got the idea from the Happy Scraps. Macey was able to work on an adorable present for her husband and I was able to start working on this last night. (Okay. I might have also worked on a present for my husband too, but since I know Wolf reads this blog on occasion, I cannot exactly post about that. Even though what I was working on is also adorable and can easily be altered into something you can make for students.)

The colors are a little funny in all the pictures. The red is a dark cranberry and the floral design for the O is more of a cream colored background.
I traced the letters onto scrapbook paper and then cut them out by hand. For the flags, hearts, and letters, I used my lovely Silhouette to cut them out and then used a red and white floss to string them together.
I probably should have worked more on unpacking instead of making this, but parts of your house can look cute while your living room has most your possessions boxed up, right?

Last night made me realize that I need to find more people to craft with! Please please please even if you are somewhat slightly interested in any type of crafting, call me. I want to do it with you.

Why I love My Husband

Once upon my birthday, my darling Wolf took work off so we could play in the afternoon and evening. He bought me the coolest machine ever which I fully plan on using as soon as I put our new place together. (Cake pops. Need I say more?)
We were both absolutely exhausted as two full time college students with 3/4 time jobs are bound to be partway through the semester. As we sat in bed (I basically live in my bed. I eat in bed, do homework in bed, craft in bed, etc. I know it is a bad habit and I am trying to get out of it.) he asked what I wanted to do that afternoon.
"I don't know. Maybe go out to dinner a little early to avoid the dinner rush and then hang out with Mik and Ange." I turned to look at him. He was sleeping. He fell asleep in the five seconds it took for me to answer his question.
I grabbed my phone and started to play games on it until he woke up ten minutes later.
"So did you decide what you want to do?"
"Well, dinner and then play with my sibs."
I watched him that time. He once again fell asleep before I could get out my shortened sentence. Am I really that boring soothing?
Twenty minutes later, he woke up. Again.
"What do you want to do on your birthday?"
I didn't answer him this time because I assumed he would be snoozing before I could abbreviate my plans to him. After several seconds, he startled me. "Well?"

Has anyone fell asleep during a conversation with you? Twice?
