I love this holiday!! Who doesn't? Haters that's who!! Valentine Haters are bitter because they have NO love and they have NO love because they are bitter! You don't need a special day to express your love, you're supposed to show your affection everyday!! BLAH BLAH BLAH!! Lighten up people! Anti-Valentine peeps think it has been taken over by commercialism... but so what!! Whoop-de-do! You don't have to buy into all of that! And so what if you do!! It's FUN!!
I totally remember decorating empty kleenex boxes or stapling together paper plates and construction paper to create Valentine Holders adorned with pink and red hearts! Not sure about the boys, but us girls would spend hours looking over our stack of cards and over-analyzing every word! Did that boy really give me the card with the little bumble bee saying "Will you bee mine?"? Did he really mean it? Or why did I get the dumb card with the kittens when so-and-so got the one with the Carebears! Or WOW she gave me the Cinderella card, so that must mean we are besties now!! Haha I miss elementary school!!
Valentine's Day is extra special to me because that's when Husband and I had our first date! We made plans to have lunch, not realizing it was Valentine's Day! That's a lot of awkwardness and pressure to have your first date on Valentine's Day! I brought him some mini pink cupcakes with chocolate sprinkles to break the ice! He thought it was a very sweet gesture and that's how I won him over!! Haha little did he know, they were the left over ones that I made my nephew for his Valentine's party at school!! Fast forward 7 years and I don't think we've spent another Valentine's day together again... BOO!! Husband is always conveniently away! Anyways, since it is Yulli's first Valentine's... we decided to make mini pink cupcakes with chocolate sprinkles for the love of our life... Husband/Papa!!
Yules and I had a special V-day playdate today with some of our pals! Here's what we had for lunchies! (Yules got to eat her tasty hand!)
Hope you all are having a fabulous Valentine's day too! Love you all long time! XOXO
