I am not big on some of the so called “holidays” like Valentine’s Day.  I always called it a Hallmark holiday.  So, I never really think about cards or gifts until the last minute.  Oh yes, I was one of those people who were searching for the perfect card in the already picked over Valentine section.  But, I was able to find the perfect card.  Whew, got big hugs and love for those cards.

While organizing and cleaning out our pantry, I found chocolate melts for making chocolate covered strawberries.  Insert light bulb here!  Yes, I will make chocolate covered strawberries!  I have never made them before.  Off to the store I go!  Luckily, my neighbor was already watching our kids for me because I had an appointment.  Bonus for the day, a shopping trip without kids! 🙂

This week my husband was on a business trip to North Carolina.  He was suppose to fly home on Thursday but was snowed in and couldn’t fly out.  What a winter, so strange for that part of North Carolina to have snow in February.  Luckily he had a rental car and the interstate was fit to travel, so he and his co-worker drove down.  He made it home just in time for the best dinner ever!

Seeing as this was our first Valentine’s Day since homeschooling, I really wanted to make this Valentine’s Day special.  How did I make it special?  Well, hubby making a drive home (OK, I guess I can’t take credit for that), little bit of decorations, cookies made in a heart shape, homemade chocolate covered strawberries, vanilla cake with strawberries on it, shrimp and scallops scampi over a rice mixture and a very yummy kale salad!  Oh yes, I made a ton of AWESOME mom points yesterday!

What did you do for Valentine’s Day?  I would love to know, write it in the comments below!
