Weekend Recap

Good morning!! I cannot believe it is already Monday again!  We had the best weekend and it went by way too fast :)

Our Valentine's Day celebrations started a little early when my sweet husband surprised me with the 50th Anniversary of Southern Living I wanted soooo bad!

Friday, Jared had to work so I stopped by Target after I got off work to pick up a few decorations for the weekend!

It was so cold that I grabbed some Starbucks to keep me warm while driving to my parents!

Yummy dinner at the local restaurant in their town! 
Saturday, we started the day off with some yummy treats & Chick-Fil-A for lunch!

While the birthday boy took a nap, I did a little decorating :)

Birthday cookie cake :)

Saturday, we headed to Evansville to do a little grocery shopping at The Fresh Market!

Exact Scarf (on major sale)

Love my Valentine!

We stopped by our favorite restaurant on the way home for our Valentine's dinner reservations.  SO good, as always!

Once we were home, it was time for cookie cake :)

My sweet husband knows I love chocolate covered strawberries and he bought the ingredients so we could make some together this weekend!  It was so thoughtful of him to want to make them instead of just buying me some!  I really appreciated that :)

We had a very relaxing night enjoying our sweet treats!

Sunday was officially birthday day!  We slept in and braved the snow to grab lunch at Fazoli's! 

The snow was so pretty!  We had a lazy day planned and the snow was the perfect finishing touch!
Comfy clothes to stay warm!

The birthday boy requested homemade mashed potatoes, macaroni & cheese and vegetables for dinner!  I'm not that into meat right now anyway so it tasted delicious to me too! 

Side note: I made my first spaghetti squash last night too.  It was easy enough but I wasn't a huge fan!  It's a texture thing for me :(

We finished the night with more of our sweet treats & some of our favorite shows!

We had the best weekend celebrating Valentine's Day & Jared's birthday!  It was the perfect combination of good food, fun activities, relaxing and quality time together! Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's weekend!
