Who needs a dozen roses when you can eat a dozen cupcakes? This boy knows the key to my
stomach heart. And the love note wasn’t too shabby, either. Salty tears mixed with frosting? You should try it.
February 14th, the final day in our 14 day lovefest. I thought it inevitable that come the 14th, we’d all be suffering from stuff-your-face-itis or in the very least, dry-heaving at anything pink, red, or hearted.
The whole thing was beyond fun and memorable. But being totally honest… we’re exhausted.
Our day went a little something like this…
9:00 – chickfila mini run. i wasn’t about to bust out heart pancakes or something equally exhausting. Gage didn’t mind… that face! definitely in his happy place.
10:00 – hot cocoa. MY happy place. the cutesie whipped cream heart was completely necessary (not exhausting). don’t believe me? cute things taste better. they do. promise.
10:30 – a whirlwind of rice krispies and sprinkles led to a food fight. thankfully no innocent goodies were harmed during the battle.
11:00 – massive cleaning spree (it’s amazing what a few stray sprinkles can cause you to accomplish).
12:00 – lunch for Bubba. I on the other hand feel like I’m coming down with a legit case of stuff-your-face-itis (contrary to my belief, apparently rice krispie treats and hot cocoa don’t constitute the bottom tier of the food pyramid. EVEN on Valentine’s Day. appalling).
1:00 – designing Husby’s homemade Valentine. what have I DONE?!!? for 7 years straight I’ve made him one. and this year couldn’t be the year to break the tradition. Or could it? But he said it’s the ONLY thing that he REALLY looks forward to on Valentine’s Day. Little liar-face.
1:16 – who am I kidding? this is definitely NOT going to be the year I regret for the rest of my life as the year I didn’t make a homemade valentine.
2:00 – it’s settled. the hotdog valentine is completed.
2:15 – naptime. for ALL of us, right? nope. crazy Valentine obsessed chick decides to create a game to be played with Husby later on that evening.
4:00 – delivery of Valentine goodies
6:00 – photobooth pics as a family. laughed so hard I started having contractions. (note to self: try photobooth pics to induce labor when I’m overdue).
7:00 – dinner at pei wei
8:00 – bubba’s in bed. we’re TOO exhausted to play the game I created. should’ve napped.
8:30 – eat leftover cupcakes. yummmmmm!
9:00 – bedtime… and the end of 14 days of love.
Hoping all of you enjoyed your Day of Love! xo
