WOW! You Sweethearts collected a lot of arrows in the"Cupid's Arrow" Challenge. Hopefully Cupid can start nipping all the good catch in the butt soon for you single ladies out there.
I hope all of you ladies (single and taken) had fun yesterday on Valentine's Day. Usually, Valentine's Day is just like every other day for my husband and I because we've got kids and no babysitter. LOL Since he's leaving next week to Iraq though he decided to make it special. He surprised me with breakfast in bed, a single red rose, a napkin folded into a heart shape that he wrote Lynnette + DJ = 4EVER on (later my 11 year old daughter added + Eva + Deja + the boys = family). LOL OH! He also got me this....
After saying "Oh My God Babe!" over and over again it finally hit me that he's going to be leaving soon. There wasn't much I could do to stop the tears from falling down my face when I realized that I ended up tasting more of my tears than the food itself. Gosh! I'm going to miss his sweetness. We got the kids out of the house and went all over the place and had FUN and he was on his best behavior the whole entire day. I seriously never thought it was possible. LOL I ended up falling in love with him all over again.
Your challenge for the remaining month of February is a recipe that will have you not-so-single ladies falling in love all over again yourselves. It's a recipe challenge and it calls for:
-picture(s) of your loved one
-any type of doily - even the paper kind
-flowers *to taste
-the colors pink & red *even a pinch will do!
