For me, I just like the whole girly aspect of it all...the little hearts, the homemade treats, the pinks & reds, the valid excuse to eat chocolate... Could it be it's the one day per year I have an excuse to do things up in a girl's sort of way in a house full of boys and men?! Perhaps.
I used a good portion of yesterday thinking of ways to make the after school hours and our evening meal into a little celebration. I started out by simply hanging a heart banner I found on Target's dollar spot by the kitchen table.
I was going to pick up a Papa Murphy's heart-shaped pizza and then decided I'd attempt to make my own this year! Homemade crust is so good, anyway! I think it somewhat resembled a heart?! Toppings? We went with olives and cheese! Yes, that's all...black olives and green olives. Our kids can't get enough of them!
I don't usually allow the boys to drink soda, but on special occasions, we bring out some caffeine free rootbeer. This time, with cute paper straws!
For dessert, I scratched the good intention of making cute little elephant cookies and instead visited our local Dairy Queen for a heart-shaped ice cream cake. Nothing too flowery, of course! Had I had gummy worms on hand, I would have put a few on top!
When we were all stuffed with pizza and a week's worth of sweets, the house got rather quiet and we enjoyed a quiet family evening. I postponed my grand ideas of some sweet Valentine's Day photos and instead saved that for this morning...
Now it's on into the weekend and a quiet one, at that!
Have a fabulous Friday!
