Three on Thursday: Valentine’s Edition
Since it’s Thursday, and Valentine’s Day, here are three things I plan to do today to celebrate (even though Valentine’s Day is not my favorite):
I went downstairs after everyone was in bed last night, and decorated the kitchen table. My daughter has a little Valentine’s mailbox she made last year, and I put her card, some heart cookies (from IKEA that she asked for), and a couple of pieces of chocolate in the mailbox. I left my husband’s card out with a Hershey’s Kiss. It’s a nice start to Valentine’s morning when they come downstairs! My daughter will also have the last piece of candy out of her Valentine’s Countdown (pictured above), which I made last year.
We will eat pizza for dinner. My husband and I have had pizza at home for Valentine’s Day every year that we have been married. Tonight, I am going to make a honey whole wheat pizza dough and basil pesto from Love Real Food. We had it a couple of weeks ago and it was DELICIOUS.
A couple of weeks ago, my daughter and I made some hearts. We took some paper from a big roll, painted it randomly with a bunch of different colors (including a little glow-in-the-dark paint), and then cut out hearts. We’ve taped them to our kitchen windows to make it a little festive in there.
