A Little Valentine Post…

Look what I finally finished-I’m LOVING it!
This is the first year I’ve ever really wanted to decorate for Valentine’s day. Do you decorate? I have to admit I prefer simple holiday decorations. Sometimes I wish I were one of those mom’s that went all out for every holiday. But I’ve come to realize, it’s just not really my style. So here are a few things I picked up this year to help us celebrate the LOVE.

You can print out your own cute subway art, like the one in my black frame HERE.
I also made this cute little heart banner, I’m not sure where to put it yet, maybe on a mirror  over my front entry way table? I actually saw THIS heart banner after I made mine, and now I might just have to start over again, it’s SO cute!

Start off with a folded sheet of 5.5" x 8.5" piece of cardstock or scrapbook paper
Cut the cardstock into half-inch strips.
Next turn the open ends inward and staple.
For some reason I was in the mood to try a couple of new recipes this week, I love trying new things! All these recipes and more can be found on Life Should Be Delicious.
They were all super fun & YUMMY!
What are your plans for Valentines Day? Do you go out to dinner? I’m kind of thinking it might be nice to just stay in this year. Maybe some chinese take out.
I think this looks dreamy too. 
And I just love these valentine cookies! Beware they are PG-13
wink. wink. I am totally making these for the hubs this year! Want to make some too? Go HERE.
