it seems like it comes around every year and every year, without fail, i get all excited and expectations are super high and then... i end up spending it alone - watching a chick flick. (with tons of candy i bought myself.)
BUT i was determined this year to stop being selfish, think about those around me, and learn to like february 14th.
and honestly, i'm glad i did because it turned out to be a lovely day.
started out with four hours at the middle school with the funny students.
then, a wonderful surprise from my cute cute husband.
|a rose with my favorite candy...|
|and heart-shaped pancakes...which were awesome!|
later, we attended our ward's valentines dinner
where we were given this spectacular piece of cake.
|every couple had one... pretty sweet huh?|
and then to top it off, i sent mr. blackham on a little scavenger hunt - which i had a blast making!
|one of the last clues.|
|after gathering all the clues... this was the end result! all products found at wal-mart.|
|and this is what the back looked like... me at 3 :)|
i'm so lucky to have a caring, loving husband who makes me feel like a million bucks.
maybe i'll look forward to february 14th from now on :)
p.s. i also had fun making this project from pinterest.
although not quite as cute, it got the point across!
