Oh my.  Valentine’s Day is this week and I am very very pregnant with not much energy by the end of the day to do much.  We plan to stay home with our 2 little boys, cook a comforting dinner (bc it’s cold outside!), eat chocolate (that’s a given) and well, just love on each other (because isn’t that what Valentine’s Day is all about?)

While I don’t plan to dress up for the evening, I thought it would be fun to give myself a DIY Mani! (<— Remember this post?) since I can’t reach my PiggyToes and I thought I’d even attempt a little nail art!  A cute little heart over pink or red polish is what I’m leaning towards attempting but here are 3 easy DIY nails for Valentine’s Day!
