A few last minute Valentine ideas...
I like to raid the bargain bins at Target. Please tell me I'm not the only one who goes to Target and ends up spending $20 on $1 items??! It seems my self control goes out the window whenever I enter the red doors of Target.
Aside from their shirts that were $5 each (Old Navy), I spent $10 on the rest of their goodies:
-dessert and crayon erasers
-plastic heart necklaces
-lips that whistle
-mini coloring/sticker books
-light up jelly rings
-Ramune soda (aka marble soda's - a favorite here)
I know that this holiday is ridiculous in the sense that we shouldn't need a holiday to be able to tell people in our lives that we love and appreciate them, but I say any excuse to reiterate to the ones I love just how much I do in fact love and appreciate them is fine and dandy with me!
Side note: Yesterday while talking to the girls I asked them even if we didn't celebrate Valentine's day if they would know Bret and I love them. Their responses made me smile and of course...laugh.
Ella: "Yeah...pretty much everyday is Valentine's day at our house, at least after dinner, because that's when you and Dad dance around the kitchen and slap each other's bums". *giggle
Mailee: "We know you love us, even on the days when you're more like Ursula or the mean queen lady on Enchanted."
My kids keep me humble.
