Valentine's Day Series: Heart Shaped Things ♥

Hello Friends! 

I hope you all had a happy weekend!  Mine was quite uneventful.  I spend a good part of the weekend indoors, putter around in my PJ's, brainstorming with John about what to do for his science project this year. This went on all day Saturday, all day Sunday, and into Sunday evening.  Stressful.  He finally decided on an idea which I'm not exactly sure how we are going to execute so the next few months should be interesting (insert eye rolling emoji here). Yup.  7th grade science is fun! 

Anyway.....aside from all that I did manage to pull out my Valentine's Day decorations and scatter them around.  It's a joy to be able to decorate with pink & red hearts AND the boys in the house can't complain  :) 

It's a holiday after all.

Hearts are everywhere 

Even on our table!  Heart shaped food is so cute, don't you agree? 

I had a some strawberries in the fridge, which I was supposed to make smoothies with...oops.  Instead I turned them into mini strawberry pies, sweetened with a little bit of sugar and a sprinkle of cornstarch to thicken.  

They were delightful and reminded me sweet days of spring are coming! (someday : )

More hearts. 

And more hearts.  

A bouquet of hearts on the table. 

They leave sparkles everywhere and I kind of like it : )

 My hutch is ready to hang Valentines 

Will Rob notice this one?  

 Hugs & Kisses XO 

Susan Branch's LOVE book is a favorite of mine 

And lastly, I couldn't resist using these heart pans once again. 

This time for brownies. 

I messed up the baking time on these, leaving the middle slightly undercooked.  No problem.  I passed them off as lava cakes and they were a hit with Rob & John.  Who can resist melty, oozy, chocolate? Clearly not us 

Happy Monday Friends! Hope you have a great day! 

Thanks for visiting!

  3. PLEASE READ!!!Hello Guys!!! I am Sharon I live in Ohio USA I’m 37 Years old, am so happy I got my blank ATM card from Adriano. My blank ATM card can withdraw $4,000 daily. I got it from Him last week and now I have withdrawn about $10,000 for free. The blank ATM withdraws money from any ATM machines and there is no name on it because it is blank just your PIN will be on it, it is not traceable and now I have money for business, shopping and enough money for me and my family to live on.I am really glad and happy i met Adriano because I met Five persons before him and they could not help me. But am happy now Adriano sent the card through DHL and I got it in two days. Get your own card from him right now, he is giving it out for small fee to help people even if it is illegal but it helps a lot and no one ever gets caught or traced. I’m happy and grateful to Adriano because he changed my story all of a sudden. The card works in all countries that is the good news Adriano's email address is
