how we do love...

We aren't big Valentines people here...ever since we started dating Doug and I have agreed that if we wait until assigned days of the year to show each other how much we love one another...then our relationship would probably not be so great. So we work really hard all of the time to speak love to each other in ways the other can feel it...if you haven't read The Five Love Languages...I highly recommend it...it will change your path...in a good way. :)
We try to share the love in every day ways that cater to the person we are trying to show love to...we don't go for when and what Hallmark says our mates, friends or children need to feel loved. :) I would actually be a little sad if Doug showed up with a dozen red roses and a box of chocolates...because that is SO far from who I am...I would much prefer a hot Starbucks and some daisies on a random day of the year. :)
So Valentines, this year, consisted of me making pink rice krispie treats...
...in X's and O's of course. :)
And some love themed pancakes for dinner for my two Valentines. :)
Even if Moses repeatedly refused to be mine... :)
I know I am not the best wife in the world but I try really hard to let Doug know he is loved and appreciated by me in ways that I think speak to him best...

I try daily to live up to being a Proverbs 31 woman for him. :)
Now there is a life goal for any wife to work towards! :)

And yes...that number over there on the baby ticker keeps getting smaller...if I think about it too long, I scream a little on the inside! :)

Hope your day is blessed and that you can feel the love!
xoxo

Yay!! Someone else who agrees with our philosophy about Vday!! I NEVER expect a gift on vday. Instead, we flew to Philly to see some dear friends. Hallmark doesn't know love!!

It has been many years since my husband and I celebrated Valentine's day. This year, we decided it was high time to do something. It was a much needed dinner out (without the boys) and a sweet dessert when we arrived home (for all of us!).

Love your rice krispy treats and the pancakes with pink hearts is a great idea!

I couldn't agree with your more about The Five Love Languages. It's the sort of book that should be given as a wedding present! How gorgeous are those rice krispies - clever and thoughtful.

I'd never thought of adding color when I added "doodles" to our pancakes. (I just let the doodle part cook longer so it would be browner.) Great idea!!!

P.S. I'm with ya on the Prov 31 thing. : )

i love the homemade edible v-day treats. my sister-in-law made her boyfriend hot cocoa with hearts cut out of the middle of the marshmallows. It was so sweet, an unexpected treat that she surprised him with. i like those kinds of details on valentine's day... it's so much fun to surprise someone you love by making an ordinary treat even more special

Hi! Did you have any problems using cookie cutters to cut the rice crispy treats? I am about to do this and wondered if there was a secret to success. Thanks!

Hi! I LOVE your rice crispy treats. Was there a secret to doing this with a cookie cutter? I am going to try this for a birthday. :)
