Have a wonderful Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day blog land, I hope you have something lovely planned (if you want it).

I don't do much (correction... this year I did NOTHING) in terms of decorating for Valentine's day, but I did squeeze in some craftiness:
Photo Valentines

Teacher Gifts
PS - I have an obsession with paint penning... and I'm ok with that

The girls in their matching outfits today with...

... the doily painted t-shirts that I made
(I believe I saw this in the Parenting Magazine)

In last year's valentine's post I shared how this is NOT really a holiday that hubby and I celebrate ... and I'm ok with that. We don't have to spend hundreds of dollars on dinner, flowers, and gifts (although I do insist hubby picks me up a card).

To add onto last years list of our Valentine's Day's throughout our dating and married life, this year is much of the same; low-key and not romantic:

2012: Dinner with hubby, the girls, and hubbys mom at our house.

2011: Hubby leaves ON Valentines Day for a 10 day Air Assault Course
2010: Charlotte and I go to Texas to see hubby for a few days before he flies over to Kuwait.... we're together, yes... but his parents joined us in Texas
2009: It is 10 days before I had Charlotte AND Hubby is at a 2 week army drill... I ended up going to Lindsay's for dinner because her hubby was out of town at work
2008: By this time we have determined that Valentines Day was NOT our holiday, so apparently Hubby had rugby practice
2007: A good friend of ours, Lindsay, was living with us temporarily while her and her husband were in the process of moving to the area... so it was a romantic dinner for... er... 3
2006: This was before we got married so I was living in Miami and fiance was up here
2005: I was in Clemson, boyfriend was in Texas at Army Officer Basic Course
2004: We had recently started dating and boyfriend had an away rugby game... although for this year he DID make it back to his apartment by 11:30pm ...

Happy Valentine's Day!!
