i used store bought valentines...

...and i'm not afraid to admit it.
normally i would LOVE to make some cute and creative valentine treats for my kids to share with their friends.
but, it just didn't work out this year.
and that's okay.
enough with the mom guilt already.


have a guilt-free, fun weekend.

  2. This makes me so happy to know that a very crafty talented mama did store bought V's. That is what we have over here :)

  4. I got valentines in the mail yesterday from my niece and nephew - they were storebought, but it didn't make them any less cute! :)

  5. I'm right there with you! It's the thought that counts, right? I don't think the kids will have any guilt. :)

  6. Not only did we do store bought this year but we're not even adding candy to them. My kids thought I was the meanest mom in the world when I told them that.

  9. Last year we spent hours and hours making hand-made valentines cards for my girls to take to school - but when we went through the ones they received from their friends every single one was store-bought. It was a little discouraging. I went out and bought Valentines cards at the 50% off table at Wal-Mart. Oh well.

  16. So did I! Valentine's day totally snuck up on me this year. I even used the leftover ones from last year to boot! I was proud though when Hunter brought his Valentines home and only one other kid in class wrote her own name on her valentines.

  17. I loved these as a kid (I got all excited about sorting them and choosing the "right one" for each friend!), and if your kids like them, that's all the matters here...

  20. Pssst....that's Anakin Skywalker :) And, he says it when he's Darth Vader. So, I'm a scrapper and a Star Wars geek, what can I say?!

    I'm with ya, enough with the Mom guilt! Like there's not enough to do and I think they like the store bought ones better (especially boys).

  23. It's really easy to feel inadequate when reading a lot of blogs but the blog isn't the whole story. You should never compare yourself to other moms and feel bad when you don't do everything as 'perfect' as they do.

  24. There is nothing wrong with that. You are a very busy woman! And I love the choices!

  25. I thought I might tell you, I BOUGHT my girls' valentine's at Target and when my husband said "You're not making them?" I said, Nah.. Emily said it's ok if I don't.

    haha.. there you go, creepin' in my husband and I's conversations.. weirdo.
