Cupid Struck

Our Valentine’s Day was calm and relaxing.  We usually don’t do anything over the top, and this year wasn’t any different.  We had a “honey and me” night on Saturday, and a “Love Lunch” as a family on Sunday (the day before Valentine’s Day).  It was so nice not to have our regularly super-busy weekend and just relax and enjoy each other.  Oh! I did finish my buffet…nothing too grand, but sweet I think.

Throughout the week I added teensy treats to present to kids on Sunday.  I just stuffed heart shaped baskets with tissue to hold all the goods!  I needed a bit of height (you know for the presentation:), thus the little heart sticks and  I hot glued Kit-Kat mini bars to wooden skewers.  When I was a kid (about Nealy’s age), my mom would give my sister and I make-up as little gifts for V-Day.  So…sure enough, I am following that tradition with my pre-teen!

Here are Brayden’s “cool kicks.”  This is REALLY what he calls them.  This was the first day he agreed to actually wear them, so I certainly thought it was photo worthy:)
