Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Did you get flowers?  No?  You should!  Go get yourself some.  And while you are at it, make yourself a pretty vessel to put them in.


The fabulousness of a glittery, glam, mason jar vase is super easy and is not as messy as you think.  Just ask my husband.  Barely a glittery speck left behind after this DIY.








Feel the love.

We are counting down to Valentine’s Day (or Valentime’s if you are my daughter…or any other kid under the age of 5) and getting ready for the school parties.  I just have to share how fabulous and thoughtful I think my daughter’s classroom parties are…

The classroom teacher  makes the classroom holiday party unique by making one special treat for that holiday and asks parents to bring in one supply/ingredient needed to complete it.  So, rather than a smorgasbord of goodies (which is good, sometimes, I guess), it is a special occasion treat.

I like when things are “special”.

For Christmas is it was fancy hot chocolate.  For Valentine’s Day it is ice cream sundaes and strawberry milk.

Moira got to bring in the cherries.  We also contributed some special sippers.


Miss Moira is very excited about Valentine’s Day.  She loves parties. She loves getting all dressed up. She loves treats. She loves the occasion.  She loves the “friends” she gets to party with.  She loves giving (and getting) special things.  It doesn’t matter what the day or holiday or occasion, but if you throw out “you can wear that pretty dress for ___” and “we can have a special ___”, she is all over it.

I wonder who she gets that from?

We will see these later this week for the very special Valentine’s Day breakfast Mommy and Daddy will fix up before school.

I am back with my “trying-to-do-something-else-besides-candy-for Valentine’s-Day” kick.  I know the holidays when we all get candy come only a couple of times a year…BUT even with those FEW occasions, there are still baskets and jars full of candy from holidays past that will probably just end up in the garbage.  We really, REALLY don’t need more candy in the pantry.

Now these little treats on the other hand…my kids LOVE them.


I haven’t gotten down to a bag of goldfish, bunny grahams, or any other cheesy, chocolatey, graham-y snack myself lately, so I don’t know what the hype is.  They seem pretty popular with the little ones though.


With a cheesy (no pun intended) play on words, we have another Valentine.  Or Easter treat if you are planning ahead.

Valentine Printables

We have jumped on the mustache bandwagon here in the CircusBerry household, starting back in October when Moira chose a mustache for her prize after her visit to the dentist.

IMG_0001_2I find mustaches on little kids hilarious, and slightly disturbing.  Fun, nonetheless.  So, in an effort to give out non-candy Valentines this year, I opted for mustaches.  They are pretty cheap  reasonably priced on a site like Amazon or Oriental Trading Co.  Paired with a cutesy valentine card, we are all set.


You can find the link to the PDF below.  Each 81/2″x11″ page prints 4 Valentines.  Print, cut, stick on the ‘stache, and you are good to go.

I would LOVE to be the teacher in Moira’s classroom, seeing a dozen pre-K kiddies running around with facial hair.  The visual is too much to bare!
