Valentine's Day: Mr. Edition

This is Michael and I on our first Valentine’s Day together.  I love looking at it and remembering how excited I was to be spending Valentine’s with him… and how I looked everywhere for that dress!  It’s funny how it was only a couple of years ago but I think we look so young...
That year we went out for a fancy dinner, but now have ended up making a tradition of staying in on the holiday.  Along with this has come the tradition of heart shaped meat (rib-eye that is).  It is the perfect combination that makes both me (the lover of all mushy V-Day stuff) and Michael (the lover of meat) happy on Valentine’s Day.  I get the meat at Rhett’s Meat Market and it is delicious (and cute).  So if the saying is true that the only way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, I think this dinner is just perfect.
I’m thinking about ending the meal with something sweet from Whole Foods…because you have to have chocolate on Valentine’s.  It’s a rule.  If I get brave I might even try to bake something myself…
I am beyond thankful to be spending Valentine’s with my HUSBAND this year.  Someday I know we will end up like this. Love you Michael  = )

Valentine's Day: Norma Jean Editon

I love Valentine's Day.  I just do.  It's a great excuse to show the people you love how much they mean to you... even your furry friends.

This past weekend I made a stop at The Barking Dog Bakery in OKC.  I wasn't planning to stop, but as I drove down May Avenue their cute Valentine's Day display caught my eye.  The doggy bakery offers homemade doggy treats, Birthday cakes (I'm thinking one is a must for Norma's 5th B-Day celebration in June.  Mark your calendars)  frozen yogurt and....  special Valentine's day treats for your pup.  It is a super cute little spot and I think Norma Jean really enjoys the cookies... I know Norma Jean really enjoys the cookies.

I am also thinking about splurging on a new collar for Norm, and I think Valentine's Day will be the perfect time to do so. I've had a hard time finding cute collars for big dogs, but came across these from My Mascot  and I think they are perfect. And preppy. And pretty.
