Happy Valentine’s Day!

I’m hoping that you had a great day so far! I started off the day with a 5 mile run with my pal, Heather. Although it is decent weather here in Southern California, we whined about the cold….the entire run! We also whined about getting up early {we met up at 5:45am}, and the super fast runners that kept passing us. But in the end, the miles flew by and I arrived home at 7am with today’s run done.

Happy Valentine’s Day To Everyone!

I sent the kid to school today in a boy-themed Valentine’s Day shirt. I’m lucky that I can still get him to wear shirts like this. It’s only a matter of time folks. He’s growing up so fast.

My Valentine was very serious this morning.

I volunteered at my son’s class party. Lots of chaos, as usual. I helped with a bookmark craft project, which involved threading beads onto a string and tying tiny knots. My hands are way too chunky and clumsy for a chore like this. I ended up taking some pictures after I was done tying the tiny knots onto the bookmarks. Oy….why are these Holiday crafts so time consuming, and involve way too much adult help?

Valentine's Day cards are done for my son! 3rd year in a row I went handmade. Thanks to @knittybitties for the idea {I'm a copycat} and Paging Supermom {supermommoments.com} for the printable. #valentinesday #handmade

My son {age 7, second grade} took these Valentine’s to hand out at school. This is the 3rd year in a row, that he has taken handmade cards/items. Even my husband has turned into a snob. He says, blah….get some creativity people when he saw the normal store bought cards. HAHAHA!

We {I, me} made these items super fast. They were easy once I had all of the supplies at hand. My son absolutely loved them!! I found them on Paging Supermom. I made these photo cards in Kindergarten, and the fish bowl cards in first grade.

My son came home with a TON of Valentine’s Day stuff in his backpack this year, the most I’ve ever seen. It was almost like Halloween again. Of course, he had already eaten all the good candy, the kid is smart.

I’m going to relax the rest of the night. We have nothing special planned, and I’m ok with that. Honestly….

Do you do anything special for Valentine’s Day?


Those are awesome valentines! We did the "you rock" valentines with pop rocks.
