Valentine’s Day Recap

So, Valentine’s Day didn’t go exactly as I had planned…

I spent most of my day with another man besides my husband!

First, I decided that I would wake up early and make a special Valentine’s Day breakfast for the Happy Hubby.

I decorated the kitchen with banners and hearts and a table dressed to the nines in pink and red.

When my alarm went off (at 5:30!), the Happy Hubby was already heading out the door to study for his morning class.

We had just enough time to exchange a quick Valentine kiss and then he was off!

So the Happy Buddy and I dined on some pink oatmeal. :-)

Then the Happy Buddy and I drove to his preschool where I was in charge of his Valentine’s Day party.

That went great – except I forgot to bring the camera.

We did a small craft (I transformed all of the Happy Buddy’s classmates into Valentine Bees – click HERE to see directions for this project).

We ate lots of red food (pizza, strawberries, raspberries, and apple juice) and all of the Happy Buddies decorated sugar cookies with pink frosting and Valentine sprinkles.

I caught my own Happy Buddy dipping his plastic knife into the icing can and then licking it.

This happened about 3 times.

We also read a wonderful story about God’s love.

After school we came home and gave our neighbors’ Happy Home a Heart Attack.

There’s my little accomplice.

Later, I went about fixing a lavish romantic dinner (steaks, homemade macaroni and cheese, roasted asparagus…) for the Happy Hubby to come home to… but then when we chatted on the phone he reminded me that he had another class that evening until 9:30 pm.


I tell you.  I have been having the worst case of pregnancy brain EVER. :-)

So I asked the Happy Buddy if he would be my Valentine’s Day Dinner Date.

We made a heart-shaped cake using THIS simple technique.

We decorated it with M&Ms.

I think he liked it.

I’m pretty sure that kid had more sugar on Valentine’s Day this year than he has had in his entire 2 and a half years! :-)

He kept giggling and saying, “I love Valentine’s Day.”

When the Happy Hubby finally made it home that night, I had a trail of Hershey’s Kisses leading him to a plate of some super fancy leftover frozen pizza (of which I plucked off the pepperonis and cut into hearts). :-)

Then we snuggled on the couch and watched our favorite TV show and ate way too much chocolate.

I happened to be celebrating the fact that I only gained 1 pound since my last appointment with the OB. :-)

It didn’t go exactly as I had planned, but I can’t think of two more amazing men (albeit one is a little short) I’d rather have as my Valentines!

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day celebrating with your Happy Homes!

Happy Valentine’s Day-ing! :-)

  1. I think my kiddos had a lifetime supply of sugar yesterday too! Love the Bee craft idea and thanks for the book recommendation. I can’t wait to check it out. Glad you had a fun day with your little man. Nothing sweeter than a boy’s love for his mama! :)

  2. I can relate to the change in plans, sounds like you did a great job of adjusting and it worked out great even if it wasn’t as you planned. I am not sure I would have been so graceful about it all. You are amazing, thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks for your great ideas! We used a couple of them this year and had great fun this Valentine’s Day. As a matter of fact, we’re still celebrating. We’re making more cookies today! :)

  4. Mine didn’t go as planned either! I got sick from dinner and spent the evening on the couch, moaning. My poor DH had this amazing day planned, and I didn’t even get to say “thank you” the way we were planning! ;o)
