Since having children, my husband and I don't celebrate Valentine's Day in the "traditional" way. You know, getting all dressed up and going out to an overpriced dinner. Our Valentine's Day is usually low-key and this year was no different.
Doc sang at church this weekend, so things were a little fragmented with him being gone so much. We decided to pick up dinner Saturday night from a great local restaurant that did a V-day special. They offered 2 filet mignons, a lobster tail, twice baked potatoes, and green beans--followed by the best chocolate truffles EVER. YUM!
Yesterday, I helped with the girls' Valentine's Day parties at school. I made these heart shaped sandwiches and heart smokies.
But here's my favorite part of Valentine's Day-
Hubby came home from work with this......
He didn't buy this for the girls to just play with, but for him to do mani/pedis on them.
If you knew what a "manly man" he is, this would melt your heart as much as it did mine. This was all his idea, and I have to chuckle when I think of him scoping out the nail polish aisle.
He told me to go take a hot bath (rare once you have kiddos), and he spent the next hour and a half painting their fingers and toenails. He did designs and added stickers and glitter.
What a daddy and what a husband!
I just had to brag because I'm so blessed!
