Happy Valentine's Day! Our schools are closed this week for winter break, so my girls had all their school festivities last week, but that didn't stop us from celebrating at home.
Last night our Valentine's Day cherubs, "Valentino and Valentina" paid us a visit. The girls left donuts and milk out and this morning they received a gift and card from our favorite Valentine's Day duo. My kids get alot of action from every holiday. At Christmas it's Santa, at Easter, The Easter Bunny. Valentine's Day brings "Valentino and Valentina" and on Saint Patrick's Day "Lucky The Leprechaun" comes bearing presents. PLUS my they got a package from my parents and new Nintendo DS games from Mom and Dad. They don't know how good they have it!
I received a dozen red roses and we are having sushi for dinner tonight. Saturday we have a babysitter and we'll have our official Valentine's Day date night.
I couldn't figure out what to get for my husband. He's tough to shop for, but today at Linens-n-Things we found something amazing that I never thought I would EVER buy in a million years. We purchased the Homedics Shiatsu Massaging Cushion WITH HEAT! Holy sheeeot. It feels so damn good. When we tried it out at the store my four year old said, "Whoever invented this is a GENIUS!" That sealed the deal for me.
When Brad gets home we'll sit him in a chair next to the fire and crank up his new toy. I'll bet he'll fall asleep in less than five minutes.
I was never a big fan of Valentine's Day, I've always considered it a "Hallmark Holiday." I have officially changed my position. (Maybe I should become a politician!) Any day that promotes being nice to others and provides an excuse to pamper myself is okay by me!
Hope you all enjoy the day. Hugs and kisses to you all!
