Happy Valentines & Cupid Day! I'm not a big Valentine girl myself...nothing against it but I'm thinking you should have a bit of love & romance all year long KWIM LOL! One day a year? I think NOT...so I don't put much effort into the day with my hubby. We acknowledge it of course and do something nice for each other but we don't get all crazy with it. We've been married for 18 years and I love him as much if not more than I did when we were married and we are the bestest of friends..so I figure we're doing something right, right? LOL! I'm a lucky gal to be married to my hubby...he puts up with a lot (and me of him too hahaha), he's always patient, he's so supportive of me and all my many crazy ideas and he's always there for us 110% no matter what. And best of all...he just gets me...no explanation needed, he gets ME and loves me for it...and that my friends is the best gift I could ever get...period. So we may not go all out today, in fact I'm cooking tonight and we may not buy each other fantabulous-expensive gifts...but I don't need 'em...I got everything I could ever need & no amount of $$ can buy that!
And this is a short quick post...just a fun one. I have always gotten the kids "Cupid Gifts" on Valentines Day...or made them, etc since they could walk/talk. And when they were little they had heart-shaped sandwiches, red juice and other red foods for fun during the day. When they went off to school I always packed them fun treats in their lunchboxes and Cupid left gifts outside their bedroom doors. Now that they are older...well I STILL do it LOL..its just that the prezzies have changed a bit. So Cupid still leaves gifts outside their doors and I will make some yummy heart shaped dessert this evening...and I vow to send them Cupid gifts in college too even if it makes my son cringe (cuz secretly I KNOW he loves it hee hee)!
Both of my kids love Crush soda..they don't get it often but they LOVEEEE it! So when I saw these cute printables HERE I knew I had to use them. She originally used them on lil' juice boxes but I have teens so that really wasn't working for me LOL. But I went to the store and got them each a bottle of Crush (grape for Riley, orange for Alexa) and created fun Valentines for them. Now they each got some other small gifts too in a gift bag...candy, makeup, iTunes cards...but this is their Valentine card so to speak.
