Valentine's Day and Party!!

Sorry for not blogging since Tuesday! I have been so busy with teaching and Valentine's Day. Yesterday was my last day of teaching my 3rd graders, so I had to get everything organized and ready for the teacher when she comes back on Tuesday (THREE DAY WEEKEND!!)!! It was such a fun and exciting week with my students! I tried so hard not to be too sad when they left yesterday, but oh did I get LOTS and LOTS of hugs and Valentine's from them. :) They are the absolute sweetest! Our Valentine's Day party was yesterday, so I had a lot of fun things planned for them! I love Charlie Brown!!

 
 
They were counting down the hours and minutes until they could pass out their Valentines to everyone! Those Valentine boxes were SO SO creative I had to share some with all of you!! Also, I had to share my Valentine's that I made for them (The idea came from Pinterest of course!)!! I got the highlighters at the Dollar Store (4 for $2) and I printed the hearts on cardstock!
 
 


By the end of the day, the kids were definitely sugared up and it was time to send them home!! Haha! They had about three different cupcakes, two different cookies, and three treat bags! YIKES!

Last night Colin and I celebrated Valentine's Day because we both were SO busy! We went to Olive Garden (ONE OF MY FAVORITES!) and then we went to see "Safe Haven"!! He's so sweet he puts up with watching chick flicks with me and with me crying during them! Haha! I'm such a cryer and it's all thanks to my mom and Nan!! :) By the way the movie was extremely good and I recommend everyone to go see it! Colin got me two huge boxes of chocolates and an Orchid! It's beautiful and it will last (hopefully I don't kill it)!!!! I got Colin a cute card and a box of Reese's (his all time favorite)! The box was camo, which is perfect for him because he's a big hunter! I saw it in the store and HAD to get it for him! If you notice on the card it says Wally, that's Colin's nickname from me. It all started with Colly Wally and now it's just Wally! Haha! :)



Last, but certainly not least, this is what I wore! I told you those red pants would be back!!! I absolutely love them! My favorite part is that I found a red necklace I had that matches perfectly!! Sorry for the quality, I just took it with my phone. I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine's Day and have a wonderful 3-day weekend!!! My older brother Tom is home, so I'm excited to spend time with him!
