Happy Valentine's Day!
The girls were very excited to be going to school today. In kindergarten, they are planning to really party! My 2nd grader was even looking forward to her valentine exchange, even though there was no party for them. I guess they are more focused in 2nd grade.
I found a moment last night to sneak down to the garage and put my EKG mug rug in my husbands car so he would find it as he left at the crack of dawn. I wanted him to know I was thinking of him first thing. He even came back upstairs to give me an extra kiss goodbye before leaving. Aw!
This morning I've been slaving away trying to make a special dessert for our night tonight. The kids are going to a parent's night out event, so it is just me and my DH. I've been wanting to try out a recipe for Salted Caramel Pots de Creme, despite never having made caramel before. It didn't go extremely well. I had to make it twice and completely guess when my caramel was ready, and then water got into two of my pots ruining the custard. You know, water baths really are tricky! Luckily the recipe made several pots, so fingers crossed they taste good later. I am also making a few cookies, as a backup plan. A girl should always have a backup plan!
How will my Valentine wish me a happy Valentine's Day? I don't know, but I hope he says it with bacon. Ever since my cholesterol numbers came back just over "what they like to see", I can't help myself, I've been thinking of almost nothing besides BACON. Is that wrong?
In other news, for those of you not fasting, Craftsy is having a flash sale this weekend on matched classes. Craftsy Perfect Match Flash Sale Show yourself (or your Valentine) a little love! I have been watching my classes regularly, and still haven't had a bad one.
