Are you ready to see *THE* cutest Valentine EVER?!?!
I helped run Annelise's class Valentine's party last Friday with two of my friends whose daughters are also in our same class:
We had the most fantastic actual Valentine's Day Saturday, as well. No flowers. No kitschy junk. Just true love reflected in our family. :-)
*JB went out to Starbucks first thing to bring us all our faves: bacon & gouda breakfast sandwiches for the kids & my 7-pump no-water chai latte for me! It might sound silly, but this speaks love so very deeply to me!!! Way more than any card or expensive-&-soon-to-die flowers.
*We then all went over to our church for our 2nd annual Run 4 The Children! (Dedicated post coming...) It was BEYOND WONDERFUL to have JB there with us this year!!!!! Truly a family affair!
*That afternoon, Will had a basketball game - and not only did his team WIN, but he scored 5 points!!! 2 baskets, as well as sinking his first free throw of the season during a game.
*We tried a new pizza place for dinner all together and got beloved bubble tea for dessert (both of my fave teas on the same day = my ultra fave celebration!!!) before dropping the kids off at our gymnastics gym for Open Gym play night while JB & I went out to the movies and saw The Imitation Game. (So glad I got to see it before the Oscars!)
I doubt it could have been a more perfect day: Sbux, exciting family outdoor fest, kid's sporting event, going out to eat, double teas, and date night!!! Even the weather was amazing with sunny high 70's. My ideal. :-)
What does your ideal celebration day look like?
