Valentine's 2010

Be jealous of very jealous of me. Because my husband rocks! I just got these beauties delivered a short while ago.....

.......with this note attached.

????Dinner? What? I thought I was cooking chicken sandwiches tonight. That's nothing exciting. What's he talking about? 

So I call him at work and he has arranged for Justin & Britni to come babysit for us tonight so we can go to Felix's!!! My favorite restaurant. Yum! I'm already salivating thinking about the filet mignon! THANK YOU SO MUCH JUSTIN & BRITNI! We haven't had a date night since I don't know when (maybe when we made the trip to B-ham back in August?) I really don't remember! We will definitely pay you back once your little one arrives! And thank you to my parents because I'm sure we'll be using the gift card you gave Rob for his b-day! I'm really so excited about this. 

A few days ago I made this half-eaten heart shaped V-day cake using Meg's (from Whatever) rainbow cake idea. Target had those silicone heart shaped cake pan's on sale for $2 a piece so I bought a few. I had to use a box cake mix though & I think it's kinda dry. Although not dry enough to avoid eating it! I need to find a good "scratch" vanilla/white cake recipe. Anyone have any they want to share? Here is an awesome chocolate one - I make this all the time, so yummy!

Also, I picked this balloon up for Brady at Walmart a few days ago. He's always grabbing at balloons and store displays wherever we go. It was only $2, plus it has Elmo on it. Can't beat that right? Anyway, he loves the darn thing. I think I'm going to have to get him a balloon on a weekly basis. Three days later and he's still running around with it!

If you're not too picky, and have one near you, the Dollar Tree does those mylar balloons and fills them and all!
Just a thought:) Our DD adores balloons as well, we've had 2 going for about a month now from my nephew's birthday party.

We enjoyed babysitting!!! We need the practice, so I think you two should go on lots of dates between now and July! Thanks for our delicious mac & cheese and the cheesecake! Oh, we also tried out that adorable heart cake - it was very good and so cute!!!
