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,
BUT I DON’T CARE!
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
Red Moscato Wine
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?
