Stilettos and Diapers: Sugar and chocolate and pink and red.

2.15.2011

Sugar and chocolate and pink and red.

 Valentine's Day was so fun!
I made these lollipop flowers as a centerpiece.
 Seeing it in pictures makes me think I went just a bit overboard.
All of our red drinks and festive plates ready for breakfast.
Heart shaped and pink sprinkled pancakes with strawberries.
His little morning face melts me.
Checking out his new Toy Story game.
This kid LOVES to make cookies!
And make them we did. Lots of them. Not sure why either because I'll be eating them for daaaays.
Hubs and I had our fondue in the living room after we put Cooper to bed. And yes, that is a MASSIVE pile of carbs. Bread and potatoes. We did eat meat and veggies, too. Just nowhere near as much.
Then chocolate fondue dessert. I went a little nuts and made chocolate covered strawberries and huge chocolate white chocolate caramel pecan covered apples.
Spending dedicated time with the hubs made me realize how nice it is to just chat over dinner. After becoming a parent, its easy soo easy to put all the attention on your child and forget about your marriage. So, we decided to eat dinner after we put Cooper to bed once a week. I'm excited for "date night" even though we'll be staying in and following up dinner with The Bachelor. Hehe.

  2. Everything looks so good. We also decide on staying home and made dinner for all 4 of us.

  3. Yummmm! You definitely win the fancy pants award, love your decor and all the little touches! We did a home cooked meal, sans any heart shaped food. The meatballs wouldn't cooperate :) We're on a mission to add more traditions each month, like pizza night, or breakfast for dinner night something to change it up!

    We talked about that tonight, too. Having a "date night", even if it means watching a movie together after bed.

  15. before my daughter could babysit the kids, we used to always have a date night once a week at the house... it always consisted of a movie & dinner when the kids went to bed,, it used to be sooo much fun! sometimes we would set up the air mattress in the family room for the movie & then we would chat all night!!
