How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? With a hot date out? Chocolates? Flowers? Well, it’s one of the busiest “date nights out” a year and you may not be able to get a sitter or your kids want to celebrate with you.
If you are stuck on what to do, here are 5 Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day.
1. Go Out For Dinner
It’s a long shot, but as your kids get a little older you should try and celebrate at least one Valentine’s Day out of the house. Check out the local dining scoop here. I have a South Florida Dining Guide of some of the restaurants I love to dine at. Call for more information though.
2. Make Chocolate Chip Heart Pancakes
I use regular pancake batter and a metal heart cookie cutter to make my pancakes. If you have a steady hand, you can create your heart pancakes freestyle. Throw in a few chocolate chips and sprinkle with powdered sugar. YUM!
3. No Fuss Heart Cookies
Sometimes I can’t always be Betty Crocker (not!) and make a cookie batter from scratch. With little ones, it’s more fun to get messy and make memories even when you only have an hour to play.
4. Head To The Beach For A Semi-Romantic Evening
Getting a babysitter on Valentine’s Day might be tough, so why not grab a bottle of wine, order a cheese pizza to go, fill two sippy cups with apple juice and head to the beach for some family love. Don’t forget your Yeti cups for your adult beverage of choice.
5. Have A Romantic Movie Night
Put the kids to bed early and put in one of your favorite love stories to rekindle the romance. These are 2 of the favorites that my husband will sit through with me.
