Will you be mine Valentine?
How was it? Your Valentines Day? Was it full of romance and cherished moments? Was it lovely and craft filled? Was it a celebration of your singleness?
Ours was what I officially think of as our first family valentines day. Jer made me breakfast in bed and then Will (and Daddy?) surprised me with a homemade valentine. And since he had to scaddoodle to work, Will and I crafted him this pretty card. Will traced the big pink and red hearts from the cardboard back I made. He loves to trace And then he colored the words and created the ‘flowers’ and with some help, glued them onto the card.
Then Will and I baked cupcakes. The kid is obsessed with cooking. If he even thinks you are gonna cook something, he comes running while yelling COOK HELP COOK HELP! There have been many disappointed moments when he realizes I am just unloading the dishwasher. Poor little Emeril.
I decorated them while he napped. It was easier that way.
After Jer got done with work and Will woke, we readied ourselves for a night out on the town…err…in the shopping center near Kroger. We had sushi and watched our food get hibachied. It was like dinner and a show. Will is definitely a fan of fried rice.
And then after the little guy went to bed, we watched What’s Your Number. Which, might I add is not as funny as House Bunny. I swear that I use that line “Eyes are the nipples of your face” pretty much weekly. This movie just had too many f-bombs for my taste. I mean, I can totally see the humor in an appropriately timed cuss word…but seriously Hollywood writers…wittyness goes a long way. more of that please.
I also made some thread and heart garland for our window…it is so cheerful it might just stay up the whole month of February.
Oh and Jer did get me a giant bag of peanut m&m’s and wrote me a note that had me cry one sentence in. stupid love of my life ruined my mascara
So what did you do? Any love notes? homemade valentines? sushi and f-bombs? I’d love to hear all about it (pun intended).
