Valentine's Day on a budget

 by Veronica

I hope Valentine's Day isn't a stressful one for you. I also know that many feel that it's very commercialized  and I won't argue with you on that count. I do like it the fact that I can make a big hoopla about those I love and it doesn't have to cost much.

Some friends from my neighborhood got some handmade Valentine's cards.  I am not super crafty - so to those out who also aren't - it's the thought that counts.  I found some cute doilies, bought some card stock, and I had a pretty valentine's day card with sweet words inside (which is really the important part :).  I also had a little gift for them - the little boxes of cereal wrapped in some valentine's day paper. This latter idea came from pintrest.  Thank you pintrest.  The cereal boxes were labeled, "We CEREALSly love you!" 
I bought some cute valentine's day baggies at JoAnn's and for my 2 year old's neighborhood friends (4), we gave them homemade caramel popcorn. It was delicious! I also had him color a picture for them.

For my hubby, I wrapped a whole lot of stuff he can keep in his office. Pistachios, coconut water, vitamins, chocolate, vitamin C, power bars, etc. I also made him a card that says I'm thinking of him every day and every minute of every hour :-).  While they are small things, they let him know I am thinking of him.  I got this idea from Good Morning Utah, but sadly don't recall the name of the blogger that was featured.  Last night, on his calendar, I posted reminders to open a gift every hour. During his last work hour, he can open the remaining gifts.


This morning, I made the hubby two egg sandwiches (heart shaped). But my son didn't want his to be heart shaped; he preferred a nutella sandwich with strawberries in the shape of the Letter Q.

Ah, whole grain hearts with scrambled eggs and havarti cheese.

I hope each of you has a Happy Valentine's Day!  This post is brought to you by the LETTER Q. :)
