25+ Valentine’s Day Foods and Desserts…YUM!

Hey guys…..if you have like 2 minutes and can take a quick survey for my site, that would be fantastic.  I just put together a few questions to see your likes/hates/wants for this site of mine.  I sure love blogging…..but sometimes am curious if you’d rather see THIS over THAT.  So, if you’ve got a hankering to see more tips on scrubbing your toilet, tell me!! ;)  Okay, that’s a lie…..that’s a no-go.  But really, I’d love to check in and see some of your preferences.  Deal?  -Ashley

. . . . .


This is the week…  For hearts and lace, exchanging love notes and treats, and just plain ol’ appreciating the people around you.  Do you have your dinner menu prepared?  Your dessert ingredients purchased?  Your babysitter hired?  Yeah…….me neither.


But I’ve been thinking about it. 


And have been browsing ideas around the web and have been adding ingredients to my shopping list.  My kiddos love this holiday (frankly, I think it’s because it’s the first holiday to come to their rescue after the post-Christmas blues…..), so I’ve been keeping them in mind as I gather ideas for meals and treats.  Because, meh, why not?  Holidays are always a great excuse to do something a little different. :)


Here are a few things that caught my eye……maybe they’ll give you a few ideas as well:

    I’m too late for the survey, but I do have something I’d like to see more of on your site. I particularly appreciate your clothing repurposing and sewing projects. Right now I’m in need of maternity clothes. Would love to see some of what you’ve made for yourself! Along with a tutorial of course!
