I did it!!!
For the first time EVER, I didn't stay up the night before Valentine's Day making valentines for the kids until 3am!!! I actually got my act together and Scarlet and I made these little cuties over the weekend.
Why oh why do I not always do this??? It was such a pleasure taking my time and enjoying the the process. Will I have learned my lesson? Yeah, probably not. Check back with me March 16th at about midnight when I am frantically running around trying to "Leprachaunize" my house and realizing that I used up all the green food coloring the year before! I'm just saying... it's a probability.
Okay, so we LOVED using the GIANT Pixie Stix last year, so we wanted to use them again this year-- only differently. But what could we do? So I thought and thought and then it hit me!!! What's the hottest trend in quirkiness lately??? Why THE MUSTACHE, of course!!! That's it! We'll add a mustache to the end of a Pixie Stix, attach a pic of our girl and voila!-- cuteness AND quirkiness collide!
Now I don't mean to toot my own horn (but, I'm gonna)--- Dan delivered the Valentines to Scarlet's classroom yesterday and he said as he entered the room the whole class gasped and then broke out in spontaneous applause with comments like, "AWESOME! Scarlet used those Pixie Stix again!" and "No way! Those are mustaches!" and "Those are SO cool!!!"
I also have to report that Dan said he looked over to see his girl with the BIGGEST grin on her face EVER and realized why I put in all the effort I do for silly things like this. Now mark that down in the books as one of my most favorite things he's ever said to me....
Happy Valentine's Day, my lovely readers.
