My girls and I sat around the kitchen table the other day and made some fun barrettes and Valentine wreaths for the fireplace. We sat around, talked about our day, and snacked. You see, I also went to the grocery store that day so the pantry was full. My daughter Abby was constantly saying “I am in heaven.”
I was learning the finer art of cooking from none other than Ina Garten (on the tele).
We jammed to One Direction, and I congratulated my girls on their awesome report cards. One good thing that has come from our spontaneous move, is that my girls are absolutely thriving in school. My oldest loves going to school now, which makes me so happy. She was not doing well last year, and has done a complete 180. Education is very important to me.
I was proud of our finished products. The girls wore their barrettes today, and I hung the wreaths above the fireplace for a little bit of love in the living room.
We ended the night with some sight words and breakfast for dinner. All and all a great family day!
I love Tiramisu. Oh my goodness it is such a yummy dessert.
Have you ever eaten it?
I also think it is a very sexy dessert, which makes it the perfect thing to eat for Valentines Day.
Tiramisu is one of those desserts that you can dress up or down.
Maybe you are meeting your valentine for a romantic lunch during work.
Or, you and your valentine have decided to take a day off of work and just spend the day window shopping.
Since it is a school night, you two just snuggle up on the couch to watch a romantic movie (that you have had to beg him to watch), after you put your kids to bed.
Anyway you dress it, it is the perfect end to a Valentines Day!

I love love, which is why I love Valentine’s day. All that pink and red makes me happy, not to mention I love hearts.
Romance novels, romantic movies on television, I love it all.
Which is why I decided to make a Valentine’s wreath. I wanted a little bit of Valentine’s in my house. Just a sprinkle.
I started with the fall wreath I made back in November. I just cut the old yarn off to start fresh.
I picked out three love colors. I love the yarn in the middle. It is a mix of different shades of pink.
I just wrapped the yarn around the wreath, and secured it with a dab of hot glue.
I then added a bit of sparkle and a yarn pom pom and voila!
I just love it.

This has given me the itch to make a few more crafts. Thanks goodness I have a coupon to Joanne’s.
