Valentine's, Shmalentine's...

Okay, so first. I have a serious issue that needs to be addressed.

When given the chance, does anyone else sleep for 14-15 hours?

Someone needs to tell my body that this isn't normal.


Well, now that that's taken care of, we can get onto things!

Today, I went to a Sushi 101 class in Rehobeth! I guess I should have led up to this by saying that I think sushi is weird. I really only like it if it has cream cheese and COOKED meat. No raw meat for me. So I was a lot a little out of my element! But this was a gift to my boyfriend for Christmas. This was the soonest I could book a spot for this class! 

[Side note: I love experience gifts! I'd take an experience gift over a material gift any day. But no one even listens to me, so I keep getting stuff!]

So it was a lot of fun. The guy talked to the class for awhile, which got reaaaally boring. But once it was time to actually make it, it was fun! Turns out, I'm good at rolling sushi! My boyfriend's, on the other hand, looked like burritos! But it was fun to try something new, and you got to eat/take home everything that you made! We Boyfriend brought home two take home boxes like this!


Now I feel that I can acknowledge the title of this post! It's so crazy to think about my life on previous Valentine's Days. But last year on Valentine's Day, I began dating my current boyfriend! So not only is the day a holiday, but it is also our one year anniversary. [Cue Awwwww]

The reason for the title is that we aren't even celebrating on that day. =( The boy works late on Tuesdays, and I'm sure its going to be cuh-razy out with everyone going out to dinner and such. So we're going to hang out, exchange presents, but we're not doing dinner or anything until the following weekend. I'm looking forward to it!


How are you celebrating Valentine's Day with your students? I'm keeping it SUPER low key. Call me crazy, but I have a TON of teaching to do. So we're not doing anything crafty until after lunch.

We're going to make these simple crafts I found online using skin colored card stock and foam hearts I found at ACMoore that were in packs of 5 for a dollar each.

Nothing crazy. I don't have time for glitter, patterns, and all of that. =( After that, we're having a small celebration. I made it a point to write SMALL CELEBRATION on the notes I sent home, because I don't want obscene amount of food. But I feel obligated to have a party. So I'm assuming a few kids are going to bring in Valentine's.

My gift to the kids are small tote bags, also from ACMoore. They were in packs of a few for a dollar, I forget exactly how many. Good deal though! I'll put a pencil in each one, a paper airplane Valentine that I found, and they can also use these bags to take home their Valentines. Boom, done.

I went all out for Christmas. I made all of the kids mini stockings, put something in them every day for the week leading up to Christmas Break. I think I burnt myself out with that!

That's all I have for you this evening. I have a full work week ahead. YIKES!


  1. My boyfriend would probably marry me if I signed us up for a sushi class! He rolls his own sushi but no one ever taught him, so he just does his best. Still delicious of course!!

    I'm still looking for Valentine's Day party centers... ahh!!

    Marvelous Multiagers!

  2. I sleep that long sometimes! I think if your body needs to sleep then let it! I hope you have a good week!

  3. Over the 14 years I've been with my husband, we've done v. upscale hearty-heart days, and we've had years where we couldn't make it work and did nothing. This year we're seeing a play, which for me, is the perfect in between. Keep practicing with the sushi. Those chefs are true artists!
