Happy Valentine’s Day!! I hope you enjoy a sweet treat (or two) today. My plans for the day include teaching Body Step, working, and grabbing something sweet post dinner (frozen yogurt?? candy??).
Have you been having a nice week? Ours has had a few bumps. Monday night, we ended up in the ER with Kaylin. She has been battling a virus (or set of viruses) for weeks. Her fever started spiking, and Tylenol was offering no relief. Unfortunately, nothing the ER could do :(. She is feeling better though!
On the upside, we celebrated Josh’s birthday (again) on Tuesday. I made him a waffle breakfast:
and pizza dinner (cheese, turkey, and lots of artichokes):
We’ve also been celebrating Valentine’s day all week long. Kaylin received awesome cards from all of her grandparents:
Last night, I made cupcakes for Kaylin’s daycare. They’re having a Valentine’s day celebration. I used this Martha recipe for the batter:
My taste tester gave them a round of applause:
I cheated on the frosting…I used Betty Crocker:
and added strawberries:
I will never win a decorating contest (hello, I have no patience), but they are yummy!
How are you celebrating Valentine’s day??
oh she is the most adorable taste tester :)
Awww...Kay is the cutest thing ever. I just love her expressions!!!
Happy Valentines Day, Erica! Jay is making me dinner tonight - I love it because I'm always the one who cooks. :)
these cupcakes look amazing! sorry the week has been a bit rough :(
Too cute, I love the waffles... I have been thinking about getting a waffle maker. But I am a kitchen appliance freak and Dan might not have patience for one more. Hope K feels better!
Happy Valentine's Day!! I seriously need a waffle maker in my life. I'm so sorry that Kaylin's been sick - I hope she gets better really soon!! Sick toddlers make me sad. The hubby and I are spending a quiet night in tonight. Can't wait!
glad kay is feeling better!! love that she claps for good food :)
I suck at decorating too but I'm sure these cupcakes taste incredible! Glad the little one is feeling better. :) Happy V-Day love!
awwww I'm so sorry Kay has been feeling under the weather! I bet those cupcakes sprung her back in no time flash! I can't believe how big she is getting! And so much hair - I love it!
Hope you and your beautiful fam have a great Valentines Day! I vote FRO-YO FO-SHO
I love that you made them from scratch! (and an icing shortcut never hurts!) Hope Kay is on the mend!
Artichokes on pizza is seriously theee best! They are definitely one of my favorite toppings :).
Poor Baby K - glad she's feeling better! I can do artichokes, but they have to be sliced REALLY thin - Josh must love them!! Having steak at home with the hubs with a bottle of red wine - perfect date night in!
I am not good at frosting decoration either. Hope K is feeling better!
Right? Lady after my own heart
awe...poor baby. I hate when there is nothing you can do to make them all better. We don't have any Vday plans...we usually never do. Just another night, as as the one before and the one after....lol My husband wouldn't know romantic if it bit him in the ass! The cupcakes sound so yummy. I've been craving strawberry cake lately!
Oh no, poor Kaylin! :( I'm glad she's feeling better. The smile on her face from those cupcakes proves the power of cupcakes haha! I cheat a lot with the frosting too - that canned stuff is so good sometimes that I don't even care. With all of the cupcakes Greg got me this afternoon, I think it's safe to say my cupcake fix is filled for the next week. I've had a ton of different flavors from Cupcake, but I tried the Strawberry for the first time today. Yum.
Happy Valentine's Day! Get yourself some fro yo!!
Thanks girl! Its so important to me to HOME MAKE as much of Kaylin's food as I can!!
I'm so sorry about Miss Kaylin! I hope she's feeling better-- cupcakes are a perfect cure. I went to art class and surprised Ben with a painting! :)
What an awesome Valentine's day!!
She's such a cutie-- perfect little taste tester. :-)
So glad Kay is feeling better!!! And those cookies sound yummyyyy - I've been so into strawberry anything these days! Hope you had a most wonderful Valentines Day :) happy Friday!
I love strawberry cupcakes - just seeing the pinking tint and the strawberry pieces makes me wish I had one of these right now!
