Of all the celebrated holidays, Valentine's Day usually goes at the bottom of my list of favorites. I generally think of it as an over-hyped up holiday, but it does afford me the opportunity to make extra cookies to keep around the house, and brownies, and a few other goodies. H3 has been decorating cookies with me on several occasions over the last week and it builds a good memory for us.
H1 and I usually exchange cards and small presents. This year I decided to try being a bit creative. A while back, he'd showed me a picture he saw online of bacon roses that he thought looked really yummy. I laughed at first, and then thought, why not? So for this year, I sent H1 off to work today with his lunch, a couple egg & cheese biscuits for breakfast, and this bouquet of 14 bacon roses!
I almost caved and ate one. They smell really yummy!
There's a part of me that really wants to write something meaningful and sappy right now, but one kid is already running full-steam and if I ever want to get my shower before baby-ness wakes up, there's not time for sentimental. Sooooo......
Happy Valentine's Day!
