Love Potion Punch

I get really excited about Valentine’s Day. It’s just awesome to be able to celebrate this wonderful thing we call “LOVE,” and do something special for the people who mean the most in our lives. I think it’s so sweet when the kids bring valentines home from school. They have a blast going through all of the cards they received in their homemade boxes, looking for fun treats and toys. . .sorting out the pencils. The pencils. Does this happen to {Read More}

Easy Lollipops

*This post may include affiliate links. Please see my disclosure. Gah! I have spring fever already. Is that bad? The good news is I’m going to be basking in the sun in the Dominican Republic in just a couple weeks. The bad news is I’ll have to return home to snow and frigid temps eight days later – I think that’s going to make my spring fever even a bit worse. Every year there comes a time, usually close to the end {Read More}

Roasted Beef Tenderloin

Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s finally here! Valentines are ready to go, kids are super excited and we were able to lock in our favorite sitter for the evening – which makes my husband and me super excited. We’re looking forward to a nice dinner out with four of our closest friends. Nice dinners have been abundant this month. Last week I shared my recipe for Broiled Lobster Tails and today I’m sharing a recipe for Roasted Beef Tenderloin. I figured if {Read More}

Kool-Aid Valentine with Free Printable Label

  What kid doesn’t like Kool-Aid? I remember when I was little how excited I would get when I’d see a full pitcher of Kool-Aid in the fridge after a long summer day of playing outside. Although it’s February, and it’s -12 degrees Fahrenheit outside here this morning, there’s nothing wrong with giving Kool-Aid for a Valentines exchange!   It was tough for me to get through the photo shoot for this post without cracking open the bottle of water and pouring {Read More}

Broiled Lobster Tails

One of my most favorite foods in the whole wide world is lobster. If I could eat it every week, I would, but since I live in the Midwest, lobster is definitely not in abundance. However, over Valentine’s weekend, most restaurants will be offering it as a special on their menu. I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to go to a restaurant to enjoy this delicacy. And everyone knows how much money you can save by preparing your {Read More}

Valentine Rice Krispie Treats

  Valentine’s Day is going to be here before we know it. I went grocery shopping the other day and, of course, went down the candy aisle, where I found these. I knew right away what I wanted to do with them, so as long as I was at the store, I got the rest of my supplies. Here’s what you’ll need to make your own yummy Peeps treats. Ingredients Heart Peeps 2 cups mini marshmallows 2 tablespoons butter 2 {Read More}

Conversation Heart Soap

I was looking through my craft supplies a couple weeks ago and found some clear glycerin soap left over from when I made my Goldfish Soap-in-a-Bag. I decided I would do something with it for Valentine’s Day so I started searching for the perfect filler. I received an email from Oriental Trading Company offering free shipping on any order. You can never go wrong with that deal, so I started browsing the website and found these darling little heart erasers. {Read More}

Valentine Bubblegum Machines

    Do you decorate for Valentine’s Day? This is going to sound horrible, but I don’t. After Christmas, I actually don’t “decorate” the house again until spring. Don’t get me wrong, I do look forward to Valentine’s Day. My husband and I usually try to plan a night out at a nice restaurant, the kids and I plan for their class parties and, once and awhile, if I’m organized, we’ll get cards and small gifts out to our immediate and extended {Read More}
