Happy Valentine’s Day friends! Or as my friend Christina’s son, Aaron, said, “Happy Single’s Awareness Day!” That totally made me laugh when I saw that today!
Jenny and I still have a few more “love” inspired crafts to share with you but we are going to spread those out over the rest of the month since in reality you should be expressing your love to your loved ones on more than just one day a year! I thought I would share with you how we are celebrating Valentine’s Day in our house today.
I should probably first tell you that my hubby and I are not real big on making Valentine’s Day a huge deal to each other. We rarely EVER do gifts or actually go out on Valentine’s Day itself. But we do make sure to write something out to each other or send notes or texts to each other during the day. My hubby is great at being romantic, especially when he is NOT being told he HAS to. In the past we usually just go out to dinner on a different night of that week and get some yummy chocolates to share! BUT since we are both off sweets right now, there won’t be any chocolates involved (I KNOW, how can it be Valentines without CHOCOLATE? Well, how can I get through ANY DAY without chocolate!).
I do like to shower the kiddos with some fun V-day love though! This year, I picked up a couple bright colored mailboxes from the $1 bin at Target, added some cute stickers and then a few special treats and surprised them with them this morning! They thought it was so awesome! (And I don’t think I spent more than $5 per each kid!)
Here are their mailboxes (which they are already using to send notes back and forth!)
Cole was super excited for his Valentine Party in class today and Kaylee and I headed off to MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) where she had her own special Valentines to hand out! My Mops group had to bring food this morning so I decided to make these adorable Cupid’s Arrow Red Velvet Cupcakes! They were super easy and fun to make!!
I made a few of the larger sized ones with arrows and then made mini cupcakes with the rest and just frosted them the same. There are over 60 moms in our group so I needed many cupcakes!
I am thinking that I will pick up a heart shaped pizza from Papa Murphy’s for dinner tonight since we usually are juggling martial arts and dinner on Tuesday nights! I am excited to have dinner with my hubby later in the week and I am crossing my fingers that I can drag him get him to take me to see The Vow after dinner!!
What are your plans for the day of LOVE?
