Valentine’s Day Roundup & LinkUp

In advance of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d showcase a few of the Valentine’s Day treats and eats I’ve seen floating around in just the past couple days.  For a few weeks, I’ve seen so much that has me swooning, drooling, and wishing it was Valentine’s Day preseason forever because heart-shaped things are just too cute.  And they taste better, too.

I could go on and on, but that should get you started.

What have you seen for Valentine’s Day either in food and recipes, housewares, clothing, or other fun items?

What, if anything, are you doing to celebrate Valentine’s Day?  Are you celebrating this weekend or on the 14th?

We’re not doing anything “special”.  We’re not going out for a fancy dinner (typically with mediocre prix fixe food in an over-crowded restaurant), we’re not drinking any wine or champagne, and there will be no long-stemmed roses and chocolates on the pillow.

Instead, there will be dinner at home (prepared by yours truly), apple juice will be as close to wine as we get, and instead of chocolates on the pillow, I may find some cookie crumbs or Barbie shoes.

And that’s actually fine because I have no desire to go out on V-Day.  I’d rather stay in, enjoy the peace and quiet and time with my two Valentines, Scott and Skylar.

I’ve also included a LinkUp so if you’ve made anything, seen anything, or want to link up anything Valentine’s Day-related, feel free.  Link up as many items as you want.  Click on the Blue Button below to get started.

Happy Valentine’s Day Weekend!

  1. My favorite comfort food is mac and cheese :)

  2. Okay, this post is total food porn. I wish I could host a Valentine’s Day party just to make some of this stuff! This year I’ll just be hanging out with a good friend, getting dessert and seeing The Vow. I’m excited though- it’s my first single Valentine’s in three years, so there’s no pressure!!

  3. I’m almost going to be sad to see Valentines Day come and go…..so much delicious and beautiful food!
    thanks so much for featuring my pancakes and crepes Averie!

  4. What a great round-up, I love those iPhone cases! Thanks for sharing my brownies :) We’ll celebrate V-Day on Tuesday. I’ll probably cook a nice meal and we’ll just relax together, maybe watch a movie!

    • I love all your goodies…and it’s always so beautiful and perfect looking :)

      Linkup…this is only my second one ever but they’re fun and not sure why this one doesn’t have thumbnails included. I clearly didn’t check the proper boxes when grabbing the HTML code. lol
