i heart teachers

Holidays can get pretty expensive when 3 kids have 5 teachers all together. Valentine's is one of my favorite gift holidays...but it can add up quick. This year the teachers are getting Old Navy flip flops ($5) tied together with Valentine ribbon.
Here is what the finished packages look like: Get it? Head over HEELS?
I remember as a kid, my mom would always decorate the table and make a special dinner. One year in high school she actually made lobster! I am looking forward to making heart-shaped pizzas with the kids for dinner on Saturday and maybe heading up to the snow for some play time.
Do you have a favorite Valentine memory? Do you have any special plans?

Hi Sara, we do the same thing in our house. I LOVE valentines day. Nate and I made cupcakes yesterday, and needless to say they are almost gone before V-day! It took everything in me to hold him off for the baking until Thursday. I've tried the heart shaped pizza, and you wouldn't want to see the outcome. I think I forgot the cornmeal on the bottom. I'm sure you can imagine. Tomorrow night is tri-tip, (not in a heart-shape of course) For the record, I realized we have the exact same taste in music. Your music list on this site, reads just like my ipod. I love this blog. keep up the good work. Happy V-day!
