Aloha Friday #12

It is Aloha Friday! In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that people take it easy and look forward to the weekend.

This weeks question is:
Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?  If so when do you typically do so?


I decorate for Valentine's Day.  I didn't really decorate before I had children.  Lily was really upset this year when I took down the Christmas decorations...I told her we had to put them away to make room for Valentine's Day decorations.  So before I got sick I pulled out the Valentine's Decorations (not that many) and we put them up one morning.  Seriously I only have a few heart garlands, a string of heart lights & some window clings.  So my grandmother came over a couple of days ago and said, "Isn't it a bit early for Valentine decorations?"  I responded with "When is it ok to start decorating for Valentine's Day?"  {Yes, I was cheeky with my grandmother.}






I also wanted to share that my bloggy friend Beki from the Rusted Chain is donating $10 from every Blessed necklace sold to Compassion International to assist those in desperate need in Haiti. (if there are none in stock, please check back. She restocking them as fast as possible.)  As of yesterday she has donated over $500!

Have a very BLESSED Friday!

I didn't really decorate for anything before Em was born either. I think three to four weeks is good...I mean you want enough time to enjoy the decor right?

My birthday is the 18th so I would always beg my parents to leave the Christmas decorations up until after my birthday was over. I think that when my kids are older we might decorate a little or bake some festive cookies!

I am Harriet said...

I don't. I'm not even sure where I'd find decorations.

Have a great Friday!

What a darlin little fairy. Nope, I don't decorate for Valentines Day. Instead, I put all my creative efforts into making cards.

I currently only decorate for Halloween, Fall and Christmas. I would like to start putting up a few small decorations for other holidays.

I don't really decorate for valentine's day. Though we will probably make some valentines for my 3 year old's friends! How funny is that?
