Valentine's Day 2017 | Tuesdays with Jacob

Valentine's Day 2017

February 14, 2017

Happy Valentine's Day friends! I hope your day is filled with more love than you can imagine, even if it's short on candy and flowers. Our little family celebrated over the weekend so that we could get our breakfast tradition in. My family always had cinnamon rolls on holidays, but with Valentine's being a Tuesday I knew there was no way I would be able to pull off a cinnamon roll breakfast and still get out the door to work on time. I struggle to get out the door on time without fun breakfasts so there just was no way it was happening. So we fudged things a bit (Jacob's too young to know!) and pretended Sunday was Valentine's. 

We filled Jacob's Valentine box that we've used since his very first Valentine's Day with his presents - a holiday tee, The Land Before Time on DVD and a wooden car transporter. We had one more present, a Minnie Mouse plush, that we saved for today so that he would have something fun on the actual holiday. We let him open his box while breakfast baked. 

I deviated from our cinnamon roll tradition just a bit by filling the rolls with a lemon and cream cheese filling with raspberries instead of our usual cinnamon sugar and butter. The raspberries turned a vibrant pink when they cooked and it was just perfect for a Valentine's Breakfast. I used THIS recipe. They turned out so delicious with the lemon zest frosting on top!

I served the rolls with strawberry yogurt smoothies, coffee, and fresh strawberries. It all turned out perfect and I think we'll probably make this same breakfast every year! 

I'll be spending today in the classroom with my sugared up students, and we'll hit swim class tonight as usual. I hope you all have the most wonderful day. Make sure you let your friends and family know just how much you love them! XO
