covered strawberries! We melt dark, milk
and white chocolate and then dip them in sprinkles and crushed nuts. Yummy.
youngest daughter was a toddler, she called Valentine’s Day “Lovin’ Day”. It’s kind of stuck since then. So we decorate the kitchen for Lovin’ Day and
cook a meal together.
the kids were little, we went out every year because it was only one of two
date nights we got per year. The other
was our anniversary. Now that the kids
are older and we have freedom to go out more often, we usually stay in and do a
family Valentine’s dinner with them.
something really romantic for me. One
year, he filled the inside of my car with balloons while I was at work. That was a cool surprise! Until I had to drive home, then it was
potato and some steamed broccoli on the side.
Texas, so I go for comfort.
As much as I love my boots, by the end of winter, I’m really, really
tired of all of them.
partner. She doesn’t care what the
weather’s like; she wants her walk every day.
I also run on my treadmill and go to yoga. There’s nothing like a nice warm yoga studio
on a cold day.
coffee all day, eating a big fat chile relleno and lounging in my fleece lined
leggings. I also eat two pieces of Dove
dark chocolate with almonds every. single. day.
The kids know if mama’s out of chocolate, there’s about to be a family
help stay hydrated from the inside, plus switch out my lighter moisturizers and
body wash to more hydrating ones. I also
take shorter showers with cooler water to keep my skin from drying out too much
and apply moisturizer more than once per day.
Our whole family uses Aquaphor to keep our lips moist.
I can’t start my makeup without it!
Kashuk Yellow Alluriana body butter. I
go through a tub of it every few weeks. It
literally melts into skin, moisturizes without being greasy and the scent lasts
all day long.
American Idol, The Voice and The X Factor but we also love Mike & Molly and
Sleepy Hollow. Our kids love watching old
sitcoms with us like Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Mr. Ed and Gilligan’s
Island. There’s something kind of
magical about those old shows.
Maroma Beach, Mexico for our anniversary every year. It’s on the Riviera Maya and is our favorite
place on earth.
flip flops too!
the fall/winter it’s OPI “Louvre Me, Louvre Me Not”, for spring/summer I love
mint and coral shades. Wet n’ Wild’s “I
Need a Refresh-Mint” and Essie’s “Tart Deco” are two of my faves.
gosh, this is a hard one! I’m a fan of
old Hollywood films, so I’d have to say “Gone with the Wind”. Is that a chick flick? Probably, because Craig refuses to watch it
with me! I also cry at the end of The
Wedding Singer every single time, during that part where he’s singing to her on
daily reading from Jesus Calling. The
Harry Potter series is probably my all-time favorite fiction.
the time though.
It would have to be somebody who likes to poke fun at herself. I love funny women who are flawed and not
afraid to admit to it.
order to work my way through college, I had a lot of odd jobs. Well, I don’t know if I’ve ever admitted this
one but I used to dress up as a gopher mascot for a local vacation resort. I made appearances around the resort and
entertained kids at parties. It was
awful, mostly because the costume was stinky, I couldn’t see out of it and it
weighed 25 lbs.! But also because little
kids would randomly walk up and kick or punch it. One time, a kid kicked me between the legs
because he wanted to know if I was a “boy gopher or a girl gopher”. I think I quit shortly after that!
And don’t forget, today is Meal Planning Monday over on my foodie blog!
