Valentine's Day 2015

As I'm sitting here watching Bad Teacher with Alan and waiting for Winter Storm Octavia to arrive, I thought I would provide a recap of Valentine's Day 2015. 

Honestly, we have never done something huge and elaborate, that's just not our thing. We also didn't have a sitter so the kids were coming with us. There was no way we were going out on actual Valentine's Day, so we went to dinner on Friday night. Ewan picked and of course he chose Chinese, which means a Chinese buffet so he can get pizza and a roll.

We came home and were just planning on hanging out, but my sister-in-law texted me and asked if I wanted to see 50 Shades of Grey. I have never read the books or had any desire to, but I went anyway. I kind of knew what it was about, but holy cow. If you've read the books or seen the movie, then you already know. This is a family friendly blog, so I won't get into details. Let's just say that I was really surprised it was rated R and not NC-17.

Saturday morning I came downstairs to make red velvet heart pancakes for breakfast and found out why it seemed like Alan was trying to get me out of the house Friday night. I've been sick with a cold all week and he kept encouraging me to go to the gym even though I can't breathe, then he kept telling me to go to the movies. Well, that's because I messed up his plans since I quit orchestra and he wanted to create my Valentine's Day gift with the kids. 

Their confetti hearts are now hanging in our hallway. I love how creative Alan is with the kids :-)

Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? If so, what did you do?


  1. I love Bad Teacher. Aw the hearts are so cute <3

  2. Awww that is super sweet of Alan to create art with the kids for you for Valentine's Day. I've read the 50 Shades books but I haven't seen the movie yet.

  3. I downloaded the first one from the library and am reading it now. The movie ended so abruptly and I want to know what happens!

  4. I love that they're now hanging in our house!


I love comments so leave me some love!
