Cupid Float Valentine


Cupid Floats Valentine Drink - how fun & perfect for the kids!

Once upon a time (last year), I wrote about my daughters’ annual Valentine’s Day party and our Cupid Float.

As I was rushing to feed a dozen hungry 12 year old girls, I snapped a pic.

That picture looks like one of those horrible paparazzi shots when they catch the star in her bathing suit and she doesn’t know anybody is watching.

In other words, a not so pretty picture …

but one that’s been pinned over 33,000 times!

So the Cupid Float drove itself to the mall, marched into Glamour Shots, and demanded a session pronto.

She sat down for hair and makeup and tried on every single outfit (even a few feathery pink boas).

Doesn’t she look ravishing?

And she’s ready for her close up.
