Valentine’s Day in our home is basically another excuse to indulge on sweets…chocolate being the main indulgent. Don and Donnie went out one day last week, and unbeknownst to me, got gobs of candy that they so sweetly arranged in a heart shaped basket. They surprised MaryEllen and myself on Valentine’s Day morning. MaryEllen’s has the white roses for purity and mine are red for love.
Although I loved the gesture, in the back of my mind I was thinking, ‘Oh my!’ I tried not to show it on my face as I accepted the gift. I am thinking of burying all the candy under my bed where it will be a pain to get to if the urge for junk arises. Now, none of this would be going through my mind if it were just a box of chocolates, but these baskets were full and there is still more that did not fit in the baskets.
The kids and I didn’t bake sugar cookies because we got hooked on pound cake. I made four loaves in the past week! And to top it off, I even baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies. WHAT WAS I THINKING!! I am still trying to figure that one out.
We did go out to eat as a family since Don was off from work and he so kindly suggested I not cook that day.
We ended the evening by running some errands before going home and watching an episode of Emily of New Moon before going to bed.
So how did your Valentine’s Day go?
