Happy Love Day to all! It seems many boycott this day as a commercial rip off but I have always liked having a day made special by just acknowledging our love in a different way. We do not do extravagant things but I do make little cards/notes for Steve, bake some kind of treat and the boyz, bake some kind of treat and get them a little something. That was fun and easy when they were little – a cute valentine stuffed animal or something but it is much more of a challenge for teenage boyz. I think girls would be easier in this situation – could get red/valentiney lip gloss, nail polish, lotion or bath soap. Boyz…not so much!
Notes for lunch boxes
So I tried to make breakfast a bit festive but it was an epic fail…
Hint – never try to die eggs red/pink…they end up looking like vomit!
Today was also the nordic sectionals race so that was the focus more than anything…
Bizarre getup that the team decided to wear to school to get psyched for Sectionals!
JCS boys came in 2nd! Not bad for a school that graduates 24 competing against schools that graduate 300-800 students!
We came home and finished off the day with more Valentine Fun!
Dry brush and manly ‘bier soap’ for Pop!
Car themed teenage boy Valentine’s gift and flowers for Mom 🙂
