We're not really big Valentine's Day celebraters here. In fact, I posted last year on my other blog of things that I like better than roses or diamonds (plus I'd rather have it all throughout the year than just on one day!). We did exchange a couple of small gifts, which was nice, and son even surprised me with a gift he made at school - so sweet! And I did consume a raspberry mocha from Peet's coffee, which I figured is the sort of drink one should have on Valentine's Day. :)
I did plan a dinner for the family which was all new recipes that I thought we'd all like. Unfortunately, my timing didn't go as well as I had hoped (that is nothing unusual for me) and I crammed too many things into one day. Dinner did happen, but we ended up eating it while watching Toy Story 3 since I had no time or room left to set a nice table! However, we loved the movie (we've seen it before) and loved the food - yay!
My biggest mishap of the evening?
Ah, but there are always silver linings!
~ I didn't have to clean up the ice cream that spilled on the floor as the dog licked it all up for me.
~ My freezer is getting the good cleaning it desperately needed.
~ Hubs and I will be consuming far less high-calorie ice cream which will mean less weight gain. :)
Making me smile today:
Got any good Valentine's Day stories? Have a lovely day friends!
