I have seen this floating around pinterest, this idea that for 14 days before Valentines day you spoil your honey. I employed this in full force for this years valentines day. I would recommend planning in advance. Or maybe only doing a week of love. It got kind of intense. But it is so rewarding to spoil someone you love.
I set it up with 13 gift bags, with a “gift” inside each one. the gift gave a hint about what was planned for that day.
For today, I decorated the bathroom and had a gift for him. I gave him chili pepper, because I was making enchiladas for dinner. I put a note on the chili pepper that said “you set my life on fire”
For dinner I found plastic heart plates at a thrift store. I also cut the homemade tortilla chips I was making into hearts.
Was a movie night. I set up a fake concession stand and rented some movies. (pictures to be added).
I tried to recreate something like this:

Today was super bowl. I decorated the table, made bean dip and other super bowl favorites.
I made a notebook of “alphabet of love”
I also made calzones, which he LOVED.
this was bear hug day. I made him a card with Colbert on it, because the number one threat to America is BEARS. I also hand sewed him a teddy bear and got him a honey bear.
I completely eyeballed the pattern. i made the feet into circles, and cut the body in one big piece. real professional looking. Except not really. However! he really liked it.
I also gave him a honey bear.
Box of sunshine day! I packed him a “lunch” of a bunch of yellow stuff i got at party city and brought him a sandwich from his favorite deli!

I just used a cheap Yellow gift bag and filled it with stuff from the dollar store that was yellow, and surprised him at school with it.
today was a burger date. I made veggie burgers. I also gave him 4 framed photos of the two of us.
Today’s Theme was “you’re the only fish in the Sea for me”

So I made sushi….
Home-made sushi, as you can see above, is easier than I thought it would be
I simply followed the instructions on the sushi roller box. I made Cucumber, Avocado, Californian rolls, I even added some salsa to some. Yum!
Home cooked meal
This is just a biscuit from the grocery store, that I rolled flat and placed sliced cheese on top with kale. Then I rolled it into this shape and baked until golden. They came out beautiful, I served with a salad.
Chinese New Year

Today’s theme was about our cute little Poodle.

Here is our dog running in the snow. She is so Cute.
