Happy Valentines Day

This is what we had for Valentines dinner. I found this yummy dessert recipe in a magazine we have in the waiting room at work. Its so huge we decided to forfeit dinner and just go for dessert tonight. It was quite good I especially love the raspberry sauce!!

Also for Jordan I made this super cute accordion card, I got the idea from my Martha Stewart magazine. It was super fun to make. I added little gifts and sweet cards inside each envelope.

Best Birthday Ever

I have just had the best Birthday week! It began with receiving wonderful thoughtful gifts and birthday wishes through the mail from my friends and family (thank you all :). Then on Friday, my actual birthday we went to sushi with our friends Maddie and Aaron.

It was so yummy and I tried something new, a mango roll and now it's my absolute favorite!!

Then I came home to some sweet gifts from my hubby. When I woke up the next day Jordan had the whole day planned special for me. We spent the day in Alexandria, VA. My boss told me that it is known to be one of the most romantic cities. It was so perfect...good choice Jordan. We arrived and went to this wonderful brunch spot and enjoyed a delicious egg dish followed by a delectable peach filled crepe, all while sipping on some yummy coffee. Then we ventured down to the water where we found a walking path which ended up being super long not sure how long it goes for but we were on in for about 3 hours. It was beautiful and sunny. The best day ever.

We ended the evening at a Spanish Tapas Restaurant. It was so tasty and fun to try new things!!

If you LOVE Jello...

You should definitely try this...I am very impressed with this easy, yummy treat!

I like to make little jello snacks for lunches every once and awhile and last time I was making jello I noticed this "magic mousse" recipe on the side of the box and thought to myself that I should try that. So yesterday I did and today I ate one at lunch and it didn't disappoint. I LOVED it! All you do is mix in a tub of cool whip into the jello liquid and it sets as if you spent a bunch of time making the layers but really all you did was mix it and you get to enjoy fun tasty layers of jello.

It's always the best feeling to actually complete a project. A couple weeks ago I finished a project that I had started back in October and never finished!! I made it my goal to finish all 3 in one week and I did (goals really do work). They have been mailed out to their little owners and now have loving homes :)
One of these bunnies has already made it to blog land in this sweet post. :)

Now back to working on the quilt for my parents...which I started in fall of 2009!! What a sweet success that will be when I complete it :)
