What do you do for Valentine's Day?

Do you have any big plans?
I love Valentine’s Day. 
Yeah, Yeah, I know everyone says it’s a commercialized holiday made by Hallmark,
A holiday centered around LOVE!!!
A holidays that reminds us to tell the people around us how much we love them,
how much we appreciate them,
and how important they are to us sounds like a good idea to me!!!
We all are so busy and don’t always make time to tell those important people
 in our lives just how special they are to us.
That being said I won't be receiving any roses today...AND THAT'S OK WITH ME
Actually the only flowers I’ve gotten in the past 2 years were wild sunflowers 
the hubs picked me from the ditch.
1. I had to ask him to ride the 4wheeler down and cut them for me.
2. They were covered in ants.
3. They were free
but, I loved them they looked beautiful in my house.
I don’t like thinking the $$$ of flowers when I could put the money towards
new drapes, clothes, or something else that will benefit the family that will last longer than a week.

My husband and I are not all lovey dovey mushy!
And If I tried to be he would probably laugh at me.

So what are our plans for today???
Family Valentine’s Day

This morning I got up and make heart shaped cinnamon rolls,
and iced them with pink icing
 (well I first grabbed the purple hence the purple-ish pink color)
We ate breakfast with candle light! 
Breakfast complete with Red juice 
(one cowgirl got a fancy glass the other got a sippy)

I then drove to town to take the 4 year old cowgirl to preschool.
I snapped this picture before we left,  odds are good that one will be dirty by noon! :)

And of course the girls get to take Valentine’s.
We did these for the kids (on squeezable juices)

These for the Teachers (on Brownie mixes)

I also bought gifts for the kids and the Hubs.
Nothing large, just a small "I LOVE YOU" gift!
I still remember a gift I got for Valentines day from my parents.
(when I was in elementary school)
It was a plastic red heart watch.
I'm sure it cost a little of nothing but I didn't care.  
It made me feel loved!  That's all that matters!

Valentine’s Family Supper tonight
The supper Menu:
Caesar Pasta Salad
Garlic Bread
Red Moscato Wine
Chocolate Cake
And of course candle light

Yes, I love Valentine’s Day!
Be sure to make a point today to tell the special people in your life 
just how special they are to you!

What do you have planned?


  1. I'm not huge into Valentine's Day, but you did little stuff to make the day a little bit special. Not over the top, didn't spend a bunch of extra money on crazy flowers or chocolates. This is the sort of stuff I could get behind for Valentine's Day. Hope your day is blessed :)

  2. Those heart cinnamone rolls are cute! I wish I would have gotten up early enough to do that:( Tonight we are staying in with our baby girl and fixing dinner together. Hamburgers, Sweet potatoes, and of! Happy valentines Suzi!

  3. Your dinner sounds wonderful. And ditch flowers are more interesting anyhow!

    Thanks for participating in the Boost My Blog Party. I am your newest follower. And I love the name of your blog!

  4. I love the heart-shaped cinnamon rolls. Can't go wrong with the heart-shaped food...I made a heart-shaped pizza! And I always tell my man I'd much rather have hand picked wild flowers versus an expensive bouquet! At least those sunflowers were memorable :)

    Happy Valentines Day!

  5. Oh Your girls are adorable. I do not get Valentine flowers either and I am OK with that we are in "Mushy love" too:) Have a nice evening. Visiting from Grow your Blog Party. B

  7. Simple things for Valentines you shared -- but I find those are usually the best!

  8. Ant covered sunflowers are the best! And I feel the same way about the little gifts, they mean so much as a child and I can't wait until I get to do that for Wylie :)
