With or without a beau, I always have a fantastic Valentine’s Day. It’s just another excuse to make sure you have fun! Last year, I was taken out for dinner and given a bouquet of roses. The typical Valentine’s tradition was placed upon me for the first time and I can confidently say that it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be. Ladies, do yourself a favor and make sure you have a man who can come up with something a little more creative to captivate your attention. I have a feeling that I’m going to have more fun this year with my 7 year-old friend, Fionna, who I am watching over the weekend. I have made plans to take her to Lowe’s on Saturday morning for their kid’s workshop, give her a Jamberry manicure, bake cookies, dance around the house, craft a heart puzzle wreath, and to go to see Paddington. Sometimes it’s freeing (and let’s not forget exhausting) to be a kid again.
Needless to say, I have the house all decorated for our Valentine’s festivities. Hopefully they will inspire you to get into the spirit.
Tonight, I am taking the Valentine’s theme to a party at the VIM thrift shop where I volunteer. We’re hosting a ladies’ night for heart awareness month. We’re having blood pressure checks and giving tips on keeping your heart healthy. We have to have snacks that are a little more health conscious than I would normally make. I whipped up some marshmallow treats made with Cheerios. I also gave myself a heart friendly manicure with my new Jamberries!
