It was a good day. The wee hours of morning began with sheer madness, as we dressed and fed kids while ensuring the 70+ classmate valentines were properly separated and packed. Our kitchen table looked like tiny scribbled envelopes floating through a sea of candy. I’ve never seen my kids so motivated to get out the door.
These crazies couldn’t wait to get to school.
In my crammed closet I have merely one article of red clothing – a plain button down. And I don’t own a single thing pink. So I borrowed my seven year old’s JCrack bangles and stacked em up. They were great with my red top. These are actually better fitting and much more comfy than the big girl bangles. Wish they still made these. The pink stripes and elephants are my fave.
Made these petite cards for my 6th, 7th and 8th grade Ballet students. I know the “keep calm” thing is overused, but I thought it was cheeky for a fun day like today. I printed them on photo paper to give them a glossy, mod vibe. They were a hit.
After work, something pretty showed up in the arms of a handsome, thoughtful husband.
Peter said, “I remember you once writing about pretty flowers in a hat box…so I brought in my laptop and showed the florist your blog.” Ha ha. I think he wins husband of the year for being so thoughtful. How did he remember this post!?! The ironic part is he used the same florist who did our wedding many moons ago. Yet he had no idea.
We thought about making these yummy rice crispies for the kids tonight.
Instead we watched them shovel fistfuls of candy into their mouths and chase it down with homemade cookies Peter baked after dinner. Nothing like a good shock to the endocrine system. I guess one day won’t kill them.
Everyone ended their day happy, so I’m pleased. Peter and I plan to slip away and celebrate on our own on a little later on in the week.
Hope your day was full of sweetness.
