Valentine’s Day Roundup & LinkUp


This post may contain affiliate links.

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!
