Happy Valentine’s Day!


Matt and I celebrated our first married Valentine’s Day over the weekend! It was absolutely lovely!

 Since Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to eat as much sugar as you want, we started out early with Cake Batter Pancakes & Sprinkle Glaze {recipe} for breakfast. 

Breakfast was obviously a huuuuge hit! To continue the sugar rush, I baked up some Chocolate Heart Peanut Butter Cookies {recipe}

Later, we took a trip to Nordy’s where Matt let me pick out a pair of shoes…

Being disappointed with the new TOMS Ballet flats, I chose a classic pair of GRAY TOMS! I have been wanting these forever.

We also picked up a fresh baked cannoli at K9 Cafe, a conversation heart pillow from PetSmart, and Crate & Barrel Dog Biscuit Mix for Charlie’s Valentine treat…

 He was ridiculously excited!

For the second year in a row, we dined at one of our favorite restaurants, Cajun Queen, for Valentine’s Day. It was delicious! I wish you all a happy and lovely Valentine’s Day!

    Love it! Cajun Queen is where Ian took me for my birthday dinner right after we started dating. PS – Our first smooch was behind the restaurant as we walked back to the car! 😀

    Super cute! Your card reminded me of mine that I gave Arthur. It was a personalized card with a photo from Tinyprints.com that said "I love you more than Reese's Puffs" but I'm not sure that's actually true…. Keep your beautiful blog going, I adore your posts, Christina! Happy Valentine's Day.
