Happy Valentine's Day and Other Nonsense

Today for Valentines Day Ty gave me a clothes line that I've asked for a while! I'm so excited! I'm not one of those wife's who get mad when their husband buys them something like a vacuum, blender, treadmill, etc. I actually ask for those kinds of gifts!!

So for Ty I made a yummy lobster tail dinner, with risotto, steamed broccoli and for dessert I made these super rich "Jelly Donut Cupcakes". I got a 500 cupcake recipe book from my boss for my birthday. Basically they are regular vanilla cupcakes, with the tops sliced off, a little bit of the inners scooped out, filled with black raspberry jam and iced with blackberry flavored butter cream frosting. I guess he liked them, cuz he ate three of them!!

I didn't get any pictures of the dinner, but here's my handiwork for the cupcakes! The icing tasted like Huckleberry Ice Cream!! Yum! I really like this blog Bakerella and decided to try a few decorating tricks of my own. So...I'm not quitting my day job anytime soon, but it was fun!! :)

A few weeks ago a friend of my gave me a whole bunch of her little girls clothes. Ty was really not interested, although I kept showing him EVERYTHING!! Since he was bored this is his idea of a good photo shoot! Ha!

Don't ever leave Ty alone with the Camera!!

Happy Valentines Day Everyone!!


  1. Thats a ton of clothes! Happy Valentines Day!

  2. I'm always impressed with your cooking, you make the yummiest-sounding things! When we were in school I had no idea you were such a Bettie Crocker. Your cupcakes look awesome! Glad you had a good V-Day!

  3. Hand me downs are the best! Brett was totally not interested in going through them with me when we got some for Macy either. He still rolls his eyes whenever I try to show him something I bought for Macy. Men...they'll never understand! :)
