Scenes from the Weekend – A Valentine Version
This weekend was all about Valentine’s Day and doing a few small gestures to show my loved ones that I care.
Since Spendy (ahem, me) is on an indefinite spending freeze, I had to get resourceful for mr. V this year. I raided my stash of art supplies and the kitchen cabinets to come up with a simple DIY Valentine gift.
I had plans to wrap this in cello with a darling bow and tag but mr. V walked in as I was snapping a pic and scarfed up a huge handful of M & Ms. ‘Yum,’ he said. I will consider this zero cost gift a thumbs up.
I also wanted to bake something for him because he often grumbles that I only bake for special occasions that usually involve me taking the goods elsewhere. Back into the flour for more abuse. I had all supplies on hand so another score for Spendy!
I packed up a few of these for my family as well because I just can’t have a bunch of cupcakes sitting around Chez V begging ‘eat me!’
To me fresh flowers are one of life’s little necessary luxuries. I almost always have some fresh flowers in the house. But purchasing cut flowers each week can get pricey so often I will look to potted plants to get a little more lifetime with my dollar. I picked up some potted spring bulbs for $6.00 and split them into 2 containers. These hyacinth smell insanely good.
What plans do you have for Valentine's Day?
kisses, mrs. V
