Good morning friends! I hope you had a super Valetine's Day! So...tell me, what did ya do? Did you go out to eat? Where to? Did your Valentine get you something special?
So, for Kyler I decided to decorate a box with some printables that I found at the Northridge Publishing blog HERE. I just printed it on some of my Neenah cardstock, trimmed it to the size I wanted, matted it and attached to the clear acrylic box. Green is Kyler's favorite color so I made sure the green Valentine was facing the front.
For the top I thought it needed a heart so I cut out three hearts with my nesties, ran them through my Big Shot in an embossing folder, scored them down the middle then attached them so they formed a 3-D heart of sorts. Again, green being his favorite color I used that color on the top heart. He also got a card I showed you guys awhile ago and a Valentine Webkinz monkey which is super adorable!
For dinner my fabulously talented husband made us steak and risotto. We were so excited about the steak and risotto we forgot about a veggie...ah well! I'll just eat more of them today. My contribution to the dinner was dessert. My mom used to make homemade cream puffs for Valentine's Day when I was a kid so I decided to try to make them myself and they turned out GREAT! They were so simple to make. The only thing is I wish they would have puffed up a little more but we ate them anyway so really...who cares?
Well, that is my excitement for yesterday but I do have to tell you something. Since Todd and I have been eating so healthy we both ended up with a little bit of a tummy ache from the richness of the risotto and the bigger helping of the steak. Lesson learned, I believe!
Have a wonderful day everyone!
