This year’s Valentine’s Day rocked! I like Valentine’s Day. I think it’s so nice to have a day where the primary focus is love, gratitude, kindness, appreciation… What a lovely thing to set a day aside for.
Our day started out with a little cardio heart-love via a wander-run (and my derpy run face pic of the day, you’re welcome). We headed out the door, down the road and to the high school to jog on the play fields and the track. By the time we got home, we ran a little over 3.5 miles and ran a whole new route, for me, at least. It was invigorating to just do something new.
When we got home, I showered and hopped on the scale to find that I was weighting in at the 2015 all-time low of 202.8! Happy Valentine’s Day, indeed! We decided to celebrate the day with our littlest Valentines AT the Father/Daughter, Mother/Son dance at a local high school. It was really fun to dance with the kids and one another at an actual high school dance. My son liked to charge me around the dance floor dipping me like mad and batting balloons around, while my daughter was quite territorial of Bradley when I tried to sneak a kiss in! She confessed that Daddy was hers, tonight, so I kept to my side of the dance floor after that.
We came home from the dance, donned our jammies and settled in for the night. Two separate sleepovers and movie marathons were happening in our house- one in the rumpus room that was complete with a basket of blankets and snacks and a kid theme, and one for mom and dad with a romance theme upstairs, but all who were involved watched movies, giggled, loved and ate more recess peanut butter cup than anyone ever should… I think it’s funny, we watched Moulin Rouge and Titanic, they watched YouTube videos of some guys playing Minecraft. But in the name of Valentine’s Day we do these kinds of things, and I did, we did, and it was good! 🙂
