I am not big on some of the so called “holidays” like Valentine’s Day. I always called it a Hallmark holiday. So, I never really think about cards or gifts until the last minute. Oh yes, I was one of those people who were searching for the perfect card in the already picked over Valentine section. But, I was able to find the perfect card. Whew, got big hugs and love for those cards.
While organizing and cleaning out our pantry, I found chocolate melts for making chocolate covered strawberries. Insert light bulb here! Yes, I will make chocolate covered strawberries! I have never made them before. Off to the store I go! Luckily, my neighbor was already watching our kids for me because I had an appointment. Bonus for the day, a shopping trip without kids! 🙂
This week my husband was on a business trip to North Carolina. He was suppose to fly home on Thursday but was snowed in and couldn’t fly out. What a winter, so strange for that part of North Carolina to have snow in February. Luckily he had a rental car and the interstate was fit to travel, so he and his co-worker drove down. He made it home just in time for the best dinner ever!
Seeing as this was our first Valentine’s Day since homeschooling, I really wanted to make this Valentine’s Day special. How did I make it special? Well, hubby making a drive home (OK, I guess I can’t take credit for that), little bit of decorations, cookies made in a heart shape, homemade chocolate covered strawberries, vanilla cake with strawberries on it, shrimp and scallops scampi over a rice mixture and a very yummy kale salad! Oh yes, I made a ton of AWESOME mom points yesterday!
