Heart Day, Love.


My Valentine, Rob is a sweet-sweet man.  We’ve never done anything for the Halmark holiday in the past 4 years and this year we decided to stick with tradition, or so I thought.  The Thursday before he surprised me with a cute little box, I guess he was just too excited to wait until Sunday…and that’s just fine with me!!

Inside the box were the amazing David Bacco Chocolates!


Rob was able to choose 4 chocolates he thought I’d love best, aren’t they pretty?! He chose- Saffron Truffle, Peppermint, Tahitian Vanilla, and a Milk Chocolate Silk, I really loved the peppermint one.

By the way, cards don’t count as presents but I just think Valentines Day cards, are adorable.

This was last years card I got Rob–the inside says “Iguana love you forever” AWWWWW!

This year…the inside says “I’m so glad I found you.”

space love.

I’m so happy Rob got me some beautiful and delicious chocolates. As much as we ladies out there say we don’t want anything for Valentines Day, we lie.   :)




Here is my heart on a plate.

eat your heart out.

For Christmas two years ago, my friend Joel got me a KitchenAid stand up mixer.    I’ve used it three times now…I never cook or bake. That all might change though, I’m feeling my inner Betty Crocker coming out.  One reason I’ve never really explored cooking or baking would be, all the apartments I’ve lived have had poorly calobrated ovens.  The cupcakes and little heart cake in my opionion turned out not too bad, considering my lack of baking skills along with an oven that is gauged incorectly. I don’t have a pan in the shape of a heart,  which convinently allowed me to cut off all the burnt edges! (It’s only about presentation, not taste.)

Happy Heart Day!

The other day while in the holiday section of the cards at Target (I admit I’m a shopaholic there) I came across the cutest card for the second year in a row.  I just love its quirky look and saying.

I sent that card out to a few people last year and unfortunatly I don’t remember who…so consider this everyones Valentines Day card from me this year :) Even though I’m not one to accept that there is a special day where you have to be romantic, I still like the cute cards….and the red hots in the shape of little hearts.
