Beer Can Valentine

valentine 2015-p001My husband is always very thoughtful and sweet, but this Valentine’s Day morning was over the top in cuteness! As I got ready for the morning, I heard that he had made his way downstairs to start breakfast.  Such a nice gesture as we had a busy day of hockey and other activities planned.

When I finally made it to the kitchen with our three boys in tow, I found that he had been busy making us all some delicious cinnamon French toast.  However, what was most sweet…they were all cut into heart shapes which just put big smiles on the boy’s faces and mine too!  What I didn’t know was that the night before he had spent a good amount of time looking for my heart shaped cookie cutter to no avail!  So he decided to improvise and got really creative, he made it out of a beer can and some tape :)

No flowers, jewelry or other cliché gifts could have brought me more happiness.  It was such a sweet little touch that really shows he cares!

We finished off breakfast with some of my yummy homemade chocolate dipped strawberries.  It was a Valentine’s Day from our hearts, ten years married and three kids to boot…we are blessed and lucky in love!

I hope you spent your Valentine’s Day with those you love!



Hello Love and Happy Love Day

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I really do like this day and I know many are not so enthusiastic, but really how could you not make this Love day just that.  L O V E, spend time today with those that make this day just a bit brighter!

 Here are some of my favorite pictures of the ‘hello love’ photo shoot I had mentioned in the previous blog post. This party was feature on Hostess with the Mostess, here.

This theme was named, ‘hello love’ because the talk bubbles…do all the talking.  Sayings like ‘xoxo,’ ‘be mine,’ and other sweet nothings are on cupcake toppers and are things you just might whisper to your love on this very special day.  As always, I do like to add some sparkle to things so this party table was no exception.  I found these cute clothespins at Micheal’s and decided to string the banner with them and add some bling!


The cupcakes were baked in cute paper wrappers.  I picked them up at Homegoods as well as the old fashioned sugar heart decorations!  I love shopping there because you really never know what treasure you will find!

A few of you may know that marshmallows dipped in chocolate are a staple for my party tables.  I will have a tutorial on how to make these soon as I think they are so yummy and so easy!

This cake just makes me smile :)  I really did not know what to expect when I read the tutorial on how to create it and I just went for it.  I know it is hard to tell, but is meant to show ombre pink.  Even thought that did not show as well as I had hoped, this is my favorite cake I have created so far.


I ‘mustache’… will you be mine?

In my opinion, this is the best kind of mustache.  When no longer wanted, it is gone in minutes!


Happy Valentine’s Day!
