Hey, Monday, hey! It's no surprise to me that I'm just now writing this post at 3pm. I got home from Ohio on Friday night and Saturday, our friends from New York got here for a visit. We've been busy having fun all weekend!
Today we've had a snow day, even though there is absolutely no snow falling. There's ice on the ground in some places, though, so we're home bound. Our friends sure had a good laugh this morning at the "snow day", especially since it hit -50 wind chill in NY over the weekend.
Yesterday, we celebrated Valentine's with the whole gang. I'm a bit of a Valentine's crazy person and I love going all out. I was anxious for the boys to go to bed on Saturday night so I could prep the table.I tried to do as much non candy stuff as possible, with books, pencils and erasers being the focus.
We didn't have much time before church for everyone to get their stuff opened since everyone snoozed late. I'm not a big sharer of pics of The Hubs sleeping, but they were just too cute to keep to myself!
Sunday spread.I made pink cinnamon buns with cake mix and they were not only really cute, but so good, too. I used this recipe from Love From The Oven and a basic milk/vanilla/powdered sugar icing.
After church, we took our friends on a driving tour of Charlotte (since it was 25 and too cold to do too much) with a lunch stop at Bad Daddy's on the way. I love their create your own salad and ordered my own version of a bacon cheeseburger. Romaine, avocado, bacon, red onion, pepper jack cheese and a burger on top. I got some wonton strips, corn and black beans added for fun. They happened to have Birdsong Honey Pie IPA on tap, soooo, yeah.
I had to grab a blurry pic of the man in his 1st Valentines bib before he spit up on it. Which happened right after this!
For dinner, I made pecan crusted chicken, gruyere potato stacks and green beans. The dessert was outsourced to BJs for their yummy strawberry shortcake. All was served on dollar spot paper plates since we were all too tired to wash dishes!
We plan to play tourist around the city for the rest of the week with our friends here and are crossing our fingers that it warms enough to go out on the lake!
Hope you're Monday is going great and that you have good wine ready to watch The Bachelor tonight!
