I don't think a year has ever gone by where I haven't sent out some kind of Valentine to my close friends and family. This year was no different, I just had an excuse to make a cool Valentine instead of buying a box of Valentines at the store.
I of course saw a cute idea online- it ended up being a somewhat fail, but it was fun all the same.
Lila and I cut out paper hearts in preparation- well she sat there and looked pretty while I cut.
I put my wire wrap on her and thought it was hilarious/the cutest thing ever.
I got the rest of our supplies and realized I was going to have a heck of a time capturing it from above.
After a few more nights of prep, we were ready for our photo shoot.
Lila go all Valentined up..
She was supposed to be holding on to the strings to make it look like she was flying away, but she just kept getting a hold of them and ripping the strings away from the balloons :) So just pretend..
We sent them out to be printed and cut out more hearts for our name tags.
She sent out her cute little Valentine card, with the flat yummy fruit leathers from Costco.
Since Russ and I now work together, I went to visit him on Valentines Day since I went part time and wasn't working that day.
I always get Russ a heart shaped pizza for lunch- this year I just got to share it with him instead of having it delivered!
I also went because our work was having their annual cookie contest.
I am happy I made the trip in because I won!
The cookies are amazing, and super simple.
Check out the recipe from Sis Sisters HERE.
I was almost embarrassed when people asked me for the recipe because they were that easy!
I won a sweet gift basket at $50! Plus I ate like 12 cookies.
Russ and I always go out for our Valentines dinner on the day before or the day after. This year was no different and on Valentines, we had yummy homemade fondue!
