Top Five Friday Favorites – Valentine’s Day Edition

I’m a sucker for Valentine’s Day.  Maybe it’s because I love the colors associated with the holiday, that I love hearts, that my birthday is 9 days before and I don’t want the celebration to end, that I love celebrating love or that I just love holidays in general, but I love this holiday.  I know a lot of people think it’s just about consumerism and all that, but it doesn’t really have to be.  In fact, none of these links are really about that.

Here are my top finds for Valentine’s Day!

1. Favorite Sign.  David and I are notorious for hanging words in our house instead of pictures, but I guess I’m more drawn to signs.  I really like this sign and it’s meaningful.  I do intend on purchasing some canvases of our favorite pictures soon though!


Favorite Valentine.  I think this is so sweet!  I’ve been wanting to get Aiden’s footprint and handprint for a long time now, but each time we try, it’s a complete debacle.  I did see that you can get it on the iPad now though and make creations out of it…  


Favorite Valentine’s Day Breakfast.  These french toast rollups look really yummy and festive!  A win-win in my book.

10 Ways to Wear Red and Pink This Valentine’s Day.  Since I like celebrating and the colors of the day, I think these outfits are adorable.  Go check them out to see if you can throw something together to look the day.

Valentine’s Day Cookie Recipe. What would the day be without some treat?  Well lucky for you Mama Natural did the work to create a healthier version of Valentine’s Day treats so you don’t have to.  She even used the natural food coloring and sprinkles, so they don’t contain food dye for your little ones.

There you have some of the ways I intend on celebrating Valentine’s Day.  There were no crazy gifts or anything like that; just simple, festive, little ways to remember the day.


What do you think – Is Valentine’s Day fun or full of consumerism created by Hallmark?

How do you celebrate?

  1. My boyfriend and I don’t celebrate too much on Valentine’s Day, but I try to send notes of love in the mail to my friends and family members. That’s the most fun part of the day to me–I don’t think it should be just about romantic love!

  2. Valentine’s is definitely fun! It is pretty simple to just festive up your days to the Vday theme – love, pink, hearts!

    I put Aria in her high chair to get any prints, and she does really well. Plus, I can always give her a piece of food to distract her. Just in case you hadn’t given that way a try yet!
