How to Give Your Family a Loving Valentine's Day Heart Attack

I found a "heart attack" idea on Pinterest. This is a great last minute, thoughtful way to show your love. I decided to make one for my daughter last year. I stayed up all night cutting construction paper hearts of all sizes and colors. Alyssa absolutely jumped for joy when she woke up to this surprise! The smile on her face made me cry. She left the hearts on her floor for days reading them each morning until I finally asked her to clean up her room. Last year, she asked me if I would do it every Valentine's Day. I bet you can guess what I am doing tonight as I watch a movie.

Materials Needed
Construction Paper (All Colors)
Black Marker

I haven't blogged much about this, but this week my divorce was final. Not that it helped my marriage much, but I also gave Jeff a heart attack in his car last year. I thought it was a sweet gesture and would remind him how much I loved him at the time. I also wanted to give him a little extra attention. I set it up around 2 or 3 in the morning when I knew he would be in a deep sleep.

Any other suggestions? 

See my Heart Attack Pinterest Board for additional ideas.
