February Headlines ~ love is in the air

Here are the February Headlines from Giddy Up & Grow!

Have you entered the Giddy Up & Grow photo contest? Photos must be emailed to View the contest details here!!
Some people feel that Valentine's Day is just for kids... That you don't need one day to express your love to your loved ones. I agree on that. We shouldn't just use Valentine's Day as an excuse to say the words "I love you", or to do something nice for someone we love. These gestures should be done throughout the year. However, I do think Valentine's Day is the perfect day to go over the top! Why not write your partner an extra special love letter, buy a giant bouquet of flowers, or spend some special time with friends??? There are all different types of love in the world, why not shout it to the world!!
Here is an over-the-top recipe for Red Velvet Waffles that is sure to please any loved one! If you don't have a waffle iron, convert these beauties into Pancakes!

Valentine's Day doesn't just have to be red, white and pink... Why not try something fresh and new like Peach & Mint!! These colours look great together, and you can wear these colours all year round! Here is a Peach & Mint Bow Headband with gold glitter heart centre by Giddy Up & Grow!

Do you or your children like to hand out Valentine's Day cards? My kids do at school, and I like to give something special and silly to my kids on this day. Cards can get very expensive, so why not make your own!! Here are some FREE printable V-Day cards that work for little girls and boys. All you need is a printer!
