Valentine's Inspiration

As much as I don't really buy into Hallmark Holidays, I do think it's nice to set aside one special day to let your loved ones know what they mean to you.

Whether it's a spouse, family member, friend, or child, everyone likes to hear that they're loved.

Here is some of my inspiration for V-day with my hubby.

1.  DIY heart garlands.
I think I'll make some of these and write on each heart a different reason why I love my husband.
Then maybe I'll hang them in his closet or bathroom to surprise him when he gets up in the morning.

2.  Homemade dinner.
Instead of going to an overpriced and crowded restaurant on V-Day, 
I plan on making this Steak with Drunken Mushrooms.
They say the way to man's heart is through his stomach, right?

3.  Decadent dessert.
We'll top off our evening with these delicious Dark Chocolate Brownies with Raspberries,
and maybe add a scoop of ice cream on the side.

Are you planning anything special for your loved ones?


  1. Oh my goodness, this dinner and dessert looks delicious. Your hubby is going to be one happy guy! Happy Valentines Day :)

  2. I'll take the special I wish I was your real-life friend! :)

  3. I totally agree with your take on V-Day! That dinner and dessert look delectable! I just ate dinner and my mouth is watering!
