Ok, so by now I know I am home bound and will have to get creative with dinner! I look at the clock and shriek, it was already half past 2 and I hadn't even begun.
Well, as it all turned out I made a red sauce with meatballs over gnocchi. Small tossed salad and a yummy white cake with homemade frosting. I took all the leftover hearts Em had cut out and sprinkled them over the table along with a few rose petals. Used the nice china, oh and for the final touch...found our wedding cake topper and placed smack on top of my little cake! It screamed romance...and I prayed Georgie thought so too!
This was the scene I set:
Emmies little hearts....
Then just as dinner was ending I realize I survived my crazy day without passing out or having a hissy fit because I didn't have on hand what I needed or should say wanted to have for dinner. What I DID have was a nice meal for my wonderful husband and family. We had a yummy desert made with love and silliness. And I had them all with me...all around me. What I though couldn't get any better did.
My sweetie left the dinning room for a minute and like a jolly o'l elf came back with trinkets for the girls and Nana (my mommy). They all beamed. I beamed. Then, just like in a movie he slips me a little black velvet box and whispers "happy Valentine's day". Inside was a shiny new Miraculous Medal that he knew I'd been wanting. I was allergic to the one I had been wearing and had been heartbroken since I couldn't wear it any longer. He is so thoughtful (and handsome too). I think I am just going to have to keep him.
Here are the girls with their little trinkets from their daddy.
Good night all. I have a little cuddling to do.
Happy St. Valentine's Day!
