Did y’all have a great Valentine’s Day? We usually don’t get a chance to do a lot of celebrating since the hubby is off at work taking care of all the other love birds out there that are looking for a romantic dinner! The kids and I usually hang out and give each other lots of kisses, hugs and say “I love you!” to each other all day!
Jake and I did make some super cute Valentine’s this year. We found the original idea from Megan at the Brassy Apple to use glow bracelets as light sabers. How cool is that? We wanted ours to be a little different so we made our own! I downloaded the font Star Jedi from here and then found a couple different graphics from quick Google searches to use. It only took about 15 minutes to create them and they were the hit of his classroom! Aren’t they fun?
Before Jeremy had to run off to work he surprised me with a few things like these BEAUTIFUL roses! I love having fresh flowers in the house!
There was also a box of chocolates…but when I opened it up what was inside was a lot better than chocolates! I got a gift card to Home Depot!! Jokingly I may have said something last week that I didn’t understand why people want fancy jewelry that they can only wear on special occasions a couple of times a year. I may have said that all I really wanted was a sheet of 24/32 cabinet grade plywood to finish my bookshelves and of course he was listening. Now that’s how you spell love in the Smith house!
No need to worry though…my chocolates were still there…they were just hiding in the microwave. So my breakfast may have been these yummy strawberry and cream cheese pastries and a couple of chocolates! 🙂
Did I mention that my littlest Valentine even left me a love note? I love that little boy!
So did you do anything special yesterday? Or do you keep it low-key like us and exchange a couple of small gifts?
