I’m a romantic at heart, and as a woman, I love being spoiled. Also – I’m not ashamed to admit – I prefer that Valentine’s Day be all about me. Me getting diamonds. Me getting flowers. Me getting chocolates. Ok, ok, I care about my husband and his feelings too. Valentine’s Day is always a…
Ah, another Valentine’s Day. Another year of scrolling through pages and pages of clever Valentines on Pinterest made from candy and treats attached to clever sayings like “we are ‘mentos’ to be together” and “you’re one smart cookie.” I figure since you’ve already seen a million of them, I might as well throw another log on the fire……
Are you still on the hunt for something easy for your kiddos to hand out to their friends and classmates this Valentine’s Day? I’ve got you covered. I figure I’ve still got another year or two before my daughter realizes that they make and sell Princess Valentines, at which point my opinion will no longer…
With Valentine’s Day almost here, the race is on for every mom to gather up Valentines to pass out in class for each child. My daughter is in preschool, therefore I can still decide what she gives out and don’t have to succumb to the over-priced, hideous Dora/Princess/*insert random character name here* Valentines sold in stores. Thank God.
It’s been a while since I participated in “What I Wore Wednesday.” Somehow I find it really difficult to find the time to take photos of what I’m wearing. I’m usually rushing out the door, running after my little crawler who’s no doubt eating the magazines again, or cooking something in the kitchen. Finding the time to set up the tripod (or pull my husband away from his work) is just one more thing to do… but I do try and snap some when I can!
A while back, I picked up some round and heart-shaped doilies in the $1 section at Target. I figured I would be able to find a cute way to use them for Valentine’s Day. I got started with some easy projects, and created doily candleholders and a doily mailbox (also purchased it the $1 section at Target):
Every girl deserves to have a new outfit for special occasions like Valentine’s Day. Even when you don’t have a lot of money to spend, you can still find something if you search hard enough. I did the searching for you and found six fabulous Valentine’s Day dresses, all under $30.
So what are you waiting for? Shop!
(P.S. I already purchased dress #1 and will be wearing it this Valentine’s Day with some black tights and red patent flats!)
Now that my daughter, Mia, is in Preschool, we finally get to partake in handing out Valentines on Valentine’s Day! I remember browsing the options at the store and picking the perfect (and coolest) ones to hand out in class. Mia might not quite know what’s cool yet, but lucky for her, this mom does.
I’m pretty excited about Valentine’s Day. Maybe it’s because my two-year-old is old enough to sort of get it, and I can start some traditions with her. Or maybe it’s because I get excited that I am assured a night out with my husband… Hmm. In any event, what can be bad about a day that celebrates love?
