Did you have a fun Valentine’s weekend? And Day??? Full of Luuuuv and hearts and smooching and Chocolate???? (My Sweetie surprised me with some Shari’s Berries — Oh. My. Gosh!)
Anyway, it was a fun weekend here in ThimbleannaLand. It started with a fun day with the Quilty Peeps. Us locals drove a few hours to see Gurney. We shopped (quilt shops, of course) and then Gurney ever-so-sweetly treated us to a Valentine’s Proper Tea. It was great fun and the food was wonderful.
Notice how the ladies know correct pinky etiquette? Extended … yet not overly so. (I have no idea what I’m talking about…just play along.) We had two types of tea — a cinnamon spice (yum) and a chocolate flavored tea. The foods were all finger foods — appetizers, sandwiches (cucumber was included, of course) and three delicious little sweets — a meringue heart, a mini-fruitcake and a little lemon shortbread type of cookie. I have the best quilty peeps ever and we had a great day. Thanks girls — and especially YOU Gurney, for the fun treat!
Other than that, it was a low-key Love-y weekend. I made a few gifts for my little sweeties. Boxers for the boys in my favorite recent crush — Thing 1 and Thing 2! Sadly, there were no cute models around, so I just took a quick pic on the cutting table.
I embroidered “Thing 1″ and “Thing 2″ just above the hemlines — just in case both boys are home doing laundry at the same time.
Then I wrapped them (with a little fabric surprise for SweetiePie) and packed them with a chick flick movie (yeah, the boys might not be too excited, but the girls should like them), lots of candy, and some dental floss and toothbrushes to counteract the sugar.
Then, last night I made our annual Valentine’s dinner. Steak Au Poivre, herb roasted new potatoes, and oven roasted asparagus. And for dessert, I tried a wonderful new recipe, Not So Humble Pie’s Bittersweet Chocolate Tart. It was delicious! Thanks to LindaNoBlog for the great suggestion.
Oh, and this picture isn’t our Valentine’s Dinner, but it was just as fun. Someone posted a picture on Pinterest and because I’m 5 years old and love to play with my food, I had to try it.
You should have seen TheManoftheHouse’s face when he figured it out. He ate his veggies first and he didn’t know why I was grinning. Then, he started to eat his spaghetti and discovered that it was connected to the hot dog. It was pretty funny! If you don’t think you’ll die after eating an occasional hot dog, you might like this fun little surprise. If you have kids, I’m betting they’ll love it!
OkeyDoke…off to pay some bills. Big Valentine Smoochies!
