First off, Happy Valentine’s Day friends!
I promised you finished pictures from our Valentine projects around here, so here are a few snip-its from our 2 week long soiree into all things lovey dovey (at least for a 4-year old.) For a reminder of our what game plan was, check out the post I did that includes the amazing sugar cookie recipe! HERE
We made the cookies last week, dough on Tuesday and rolled them out and baked them on Thursday. We froze them over the weekend while we were out of town and then iced and boxed them last night. Clearly I did the name writing and the more intricate design stuff. We nestled a name cookie and a little heart in some tissue paper in the Chinese boxes and they were accompanied by a Valentine that Tid Bit made himself. They were all different and I LOVED them!
Check out what my Main Man gave me for Valentines…yes, that’s right, Easter Candy. You know your man loves you when he breaks out the Cadbury Cream eggs and Reeses hearts for you. Forget flowers…my man knows what I really love! (although, I’d be good with flowers too!) Just had to throw that in there! Kudos to the Honey you know!
You guys know I love presents, so above you can see the table that I set up for my kids to enjoy at lunchtime too! LOVE IT! And amazingly enough, there’s hardly any candy in there! Tid Bit got some new Lightening McQueen jammies, and Little Bit scored that adorable stuffed “dog dog” as he calls them! I think all the extra tissue paper I crammed around makes it look more fun. And I totally pulled out some leftover balloons from Little Bit’s birthday party and hung them from the chandelier over the table. It’s the little things you know?! So, that’s what we’ve been up to today!
Tonight for dinner, I’m making my three Valentine’s some hamburgers for dinner! The Hubs and I aren’t really into date night ON Valentine’s day. Too many other people busy publicly loving one another, and we’d rather have less people around and better service at a restaurant that isn’t slammed. In a few minutes, before our friends next door come over to join us for Valentine cupcakes on the lawn, I’ll post the recipe for the best burger I’ve ever had…EVER. And it’s the one the Hubs and I will be having tonight. Do you trust me yet when it comes to recipes? Hope so, because this one will change the way you eat burgers!
More in a few!
