This Sunday Funday was centered on all things Valentine’s Day related!
Instead of going to the movies like we usually do, we decided to watch one in the comfort of Allie’s apartment. I had been dying to see My Week With Marilyn for a while now (yes, I realized I’m about a year late). So, I was excited to finally sit down and watch it for our Valentine’s Edition of Sunday Funday…Marilyn was a love icon after all, among many other things too of course.
The movie only took place during a week of her life, but I wished it had been of her whole life. The end of the movie left me wanting more. I have a major girl crush on Michelle Williams and she was flawless in this role…so that may also have had something to do with me wanting to see her play Marilyn a little longer.
While watching the movie, Allie and I decided to make hand-crafted Valentines!
This year I sent…
A Heart Attack to my Mom and Dad
^^When they open the card…the hearts will “attack” them by falling out!
A Hug to Emily and Steve
And Kisses to Colin
When the movie finished and our Valentines were sealed with a kiss, Allie and I made a Valentine’s dessert – a big brownie heart topped with cool whip and strawberries!
Allie’s friend/neighbor was on a little date that day, so we decided it would be better if she and her date enjoyed the heart brownie!
But, don’t worry…there was still some brownie left over to eat for ourselves!
And there was just enough to make two more little heart brownies. We packaged them up and I brought them back to school for my other Valentines: Natalie and Hannah!
Sometimes, Valentines Day gets a pretty unfortunate rep. But, it’s not just a day for couples. It’s a day to celebrate ALL kinds of love. And love is one of the most powerful, magical feelings in the world and it should be celebrated. Even if it’s just in a small way.
