That’s ok, though. There’s always next year and the following year, and then forever. You do realize I’ll be blogging forever, right? Right. This is one of my longest relationships to date. Next month, I’ll celebrate ten years of blogging. What a long love affair! I am quite certain I’ve never gone more than three days without blogging in the last ten years, and if I did, which I don’t think I did, but if I did – it was maybe because I was giving birth and then he went to the NICU. Now that I think about it, though, I still blogged then. It’s because it was raw and real, and I always have blogged through my pain. It’s the only way I know. Sometimes, I’m more quiet because there’s less pain. Or maybe it’s not quite ready to come out yet.
I fear I’m going off track, though, because this is not that kind of post! This is about delicious, festive, picture-picture Valentine floats. For you. For me. I told you about Valentine’s Day when I was 9 and then when I was 13. I also told you about Valentine’s Day when I was 18. When I was 14, I was a freshman in high school. There were Valentine-grams in which you could plan ahead to send carnations to another student in the school. It was a fundraiser. I was painfully awkward and searching for myself, and having BANGS, and hating having BANGS, and trying to hide but also trying to assert myself and it was a huge surprise to get three Valentine-grams that year! Thank you, mystery friends and (probably) siblings.
2-liter Cherry 7-Up
½ gallon Vanilla Ice Cream
Mini Heart Sprinkles
1 – Put a scoop of ice cream into each glass.
2 – Pour Cherry 7-Up into each glass. Wait for the foam to go down and add more soda. You can add another small scoop of ice cream if you would like.
3 – Sprinkle the mini hearts all over the top and put a straw in each glass.
4 – Enjoy these fun Valentine Floats!
See? Simple. They’re simple but oh so delicious and festive. There’s something about Valentine-colored food that makes everything taste better. I think the same about heart-shaped food. As you can imagine, this is an AMAZING day for me.
If you want my opinion, I think the object of your affection really wants a Valentine Float, rather than a carnation. If you’re hosting a Valentine’s Day party, because you’re the kind of amazing person who hosts Valentine’s Day parties, consider serving a bunch of Valentine Floats. And if you’re throwing a birthday party around Valentine’s Day, you know what to do.
You’re my valentine !!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I’m so glad you will be blogging forever!! Unlike my blog, that halts for a while as life tosses me around, your blog is such a warm and steadfast place to come back to! (I was just feeling sad this morning, as I looked over old blog posts of mine and went to visit some of the commenters’ blogs. A lot of them are gone now…) I will be blogging forever too! Also, those floats look wonderful and delicious, and I’m going to make them for Valentine’s Day.

I am with you and have more Valentine’s to share still, but need to do it soon as I cannot believe it is just about a week away only now. That said, I love your floats and most definitely making for us here for Valentine’s Day now. Thanks 🙂
This is so fun! and looks SO delicious! Valentine’s Day just came around so fast!
Sonya K says
This is such a fun and easy Valentine’s Day treat!! I hope you have a great Valentine’s Days.
I showed these to Natalie and she went, “Yes please!” So I guess I know what we’ll be making this weekend!
I don’t have many Valentines Day stories, I’ve always dated the guys that say “Everyday is Valentines day” but it’s not, and trust me it wasn’t with them. I could totally see you blogging in the ICU. I’m always so impressed with how much you blog. Where do you find the time. I love cherry 7up, I haven’t had it in years, these floats look crazy tasty 🙂

Those floats look absolutely delicious and I would love to actually have one on THE day. BTW I can’t believe you haven’t gone more than 3 days. WOW! I have gone weeks before, because sometimes it just gets overwhelming and I need a break, like the one I’ll be taking in about a week.
These floats look like so much fun. Great way to celebrate with my daughter,
These are beautiful and I want all the floaty valentine’s day floats 🙂
Also, it’s fun to reminisce on those awkward teenage years. Goodness, I lived through those too and had bangs and weird glasses and just bad hair in general. But we made it out alive and that’s all that matters! I’m fairly certain I received “secret admirer” carnations from my friends, too. THANK GOODNESS for them, right? 🙂

I love how blogging has been one of your longest relationships! I used to not like this holiday, but now I’m starting to. Franco (3.5 years old) has been so excited about making Valentine’s cards and who to send them to.
I had to come back on here and copy the ingredients for this and the Rice Krispy thing you made. I’m buying the groceries to make it all tomorrow. So excited!
Mmm, those floats look really good!
Bangs! I hate bangs. Can’t do them anymore, because I get a little obsessed….. Long story. Anyways, floats like this are dreamy. I like those sprinkles!
Yum! The only thing better than an ice cream float is a Valentine’s Ice cream float! I am all about the Valentine’s colored food too! <3 Pinned this and hope to make one soon!

OMG these look GOOD! Maybe I’ll surprise Izzy and make these on Valentine’s Day.
Going to make these this year! Pinned!
