Though I believe people should express their love for each other every day and not just on one special day out of the entire year, I have to admit that I do enjoy a little token of affection in the form of a bouquet of flowers, chocolate or a sappy, romantic card. Nothing huge, but just a little something to make the day a bright one! Fresh flowers always make a room more cheerful.
Little One is now in Kindergarten and as part of her homework, she had to do up her Valentines for her classmates. We headed to Walmart for a little Valentine Day inspiration.
We had some fun checking out the wide variety of chocolates and candies. It was sort of like a walk down memory lane with the heart-shaped boxes of chocolates like the ones I used to give my teachers when I was a kid. Also, the sweet hearts with the “I love you” and other sweet messages printed on the candy hearts were nostalgic and reminded me of my childhood. Of course, the selection of Valentine’s Day cards seemed to go on and on. No shortage of cards with the perfect message for your sweetheart.
This made me giggle. I just had to take a photo of it! It reads: “The Perfect Man – He’s sweet and decadently rich! Just how a man ought to be!” I’m not sure about the decadently rich part, but a man ought to be sweet…and thoughtful, caring, a good person (you get the point). In any case, I got one of these as an inside joke for a girlfriend of mine. She thought it was fun!
I’m one of those people who likes to get creative on Valentine’s Day and prepare a “love-themed” meal for my husband and Little One. Fresh flowers, a delicious meal, festive decorations to set the mood…I love it all!

We purchased some fun Valentine’s Day items for Little One’s classmates. Little One was industrious and put together these adorable little gift bags:
Each Valentine’s Day Goody Bag contains:
- 1 Kinder Surprise egg
- 1 container of Play-Doh
- 1 heart-shaped straw
- 1 dinosaur grow capsule (totally random, but Little One wanted to add them into the bags)
- 1 Lunchbox Love note (the only thing not purchased at Walmart)
I was able to get gifts for Little One’s classmates, her teacher, one of my friends, Hubby and Little One all for under $50! There were so many deals, I was surprised at how little I spent.
