"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Valentine's Day ideas #1

So I went looking for pictures that I had taken back in 2008 of the fabulous Valentine's Day that I know I had put together......just excuse the quality of pictures.....for this blog was not even a thought 2 years ago.....but I wanted to share the small things I had put together.
So here we go!!

First :
He gave me roses.....LOVED them but oh man he beat me so I made him wait all day for his gift :)

A Homemade dinner :
(this is what we did since we had a newborn and couldn't find a babysitter so we just put the baby to bed and
had a late night dinner just for 2....just an idea :) 
Menu :  Ribeye steak, veggie and roasted garlic potatoes
gotta love the correl dinnerware!...I promise to do better!

For dessert :
Raspberry Sherbet Slush, Double Layer Raspberry Filled chocolate cake
(I was so proud of myself for making the cake...super easy and even more yummy)

The gift :
a basket filled with all of his favorite goodies (besides me of course) and a list of 101 things I love about you! 
He loved the list....some were funny and some were serious but I think I had even more fun coming up with the reasons.

Hope that helps give you some ideas.  I am still working out some of my own for this year but I do have more Valentine's things to come.  Oh I can feel the love already!
