Before you start to wonder, no I have not yet made my monthly menu. The day isn't over yet, so I still have time. Last week I was at a Hallmark store in town and they had boxes of kid Valentine's for $1 each. Of course there was a limited selection, but for that price I couldn't pass it up. I called my two school age Valentine giving children and asked them which of the four choices they wanted (Cars, Spider Man, Disney Princess, and Barbie). They both picked Cars. (A cool choice for two girls, I do have to say.) My youngest overheard the conversation and of course wanted a box. For just a dollar, why not, right? So she picked Disney Princess and plan to give them to some of her friends as we run into them the week before Valentine's Day.
Hubby and I usually don't do much for Valentine's Day as we see it as a commercialized day full of overpriced flowers, candy, jewelry, and pressure to buy that perfect gift. Honestly, I appreciate him not tempting me with chocolate confections that would be more unhealthy for me than the sweet sentiment intended. I may get a date night out of him this month, but I think I should get that every month. *snicker*
