The Sweetest Valentine's

Remember back in the day....long ago before you had kids? Chances are Valentines meant that you got all dressed up, went to a crowded restaurant and paid and exorbitant amount for a meal. Now, it may mean....lining up a babysitter, getting 1/2 way dressed up and going anywhere you can that allows you to have an uninterrupted meal....that chances are....still cost way too much. Some couples have even sworn off doing anything for Valentines because it's "too much work with kids."

Why give up on the true meaning of Valentine's Day just because you have kids? Why not just change it up a little bit and use the day to truly celebrate those you love. That's exactly what we did last night. Me, Shawn and the kids had our own private candlelight dinner.

The best part was that the only thing I purchased was balloons and a red table cloths for $3 at the dollar tree and the memories it created were ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS!
