Yesterday was a day full of basketball, last game of the season, pitching lesson, lunch with Mimi and Popi, just me time at Target, a nap for me and Corbs, and hanging with friends.
Happy Valentine's Day!
Celebrating VDay as a couple hasn't been as big of a deal for me since having kids. Even before kids I've always felt like if Ryan was going to give me a gift I did not want flowers. I feel like this one day out of the year where flowers seem to be a must gift and I don't want him to feel like he must give me something b/c everyone else is doing it. I'd prefer flowers not even on my birthday but on an expected day, just cause. Spending an hour at Target yesterday, getting a run in by myself, watching Notting Hill all by myself while he looks after the kids, those are the kind of gifts that mean the most to me.
Celebrating VDay with my kids and making it a super special day is a big deal for me! I got up early this morning and made them a Valentine breakfast b/c let's be honest holidays are the only days they get homemade breakfast. I hate that too but somewhere I messed up and our crazy kids got used to eating cereal and would prefer eating it over most any breakfast, except bacon. I learned years ago killing myself over breakfast was not worth it sadly. This morning though I decided homemade donut holes were in order. My mom used to make them for us growing up and taking a bite brings make lots of good memories and I want my kids to remember silly things like that too. I also made some Mini Bacon Egg cups in heart shaped muffin tin of course. It took me a couple of pours before I figured out how to get them just right, I included a picture of mess ups to keep it real.
Besides the scribble on the left from courtesy of Corby she did a great job on them!
So all you need is...
1. Can of biscuits (I like grands)
-Preheat oil to 350 in fryer pan (I use fryer pan)
-Mix sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and set aside-Open can of biscuits, separate, and cut them into quarters with a knife. ( I attempted to cut them into hearts but just a few were even recognizable so it was a waste of time)
-Throw a handful of biscuits in the hot oil and fry until golden brown
-Place onto a paper towel line plate to soak some grease
-While still hot roll in cinnamon sugar mixture
-Cool and Enjoy!
Mini Bacon Egg Cups
The pretty ones...
But what was great was when you turned them over even the mess up ones looked great!!!
Corby was decked out in all Brady's old clothes, shirt, jeans, socks, and shoes!
How perfect one of my favorite movies came on while I was blogging. And yes my Christmas stuff is still up, lol, I'm awful!! Julia Roberts is by far my favorite actress and in my top 5 fav movies are this movie and my Best Friends Wedding, in which songs for both were used in my wedding! I came down the isle to Suite from My Best Friend's Wedding (it was perfect, the doors opened right at the climatic part for me to begin my walk, still gives me chills) and one of my dear friends sang When You Say Nothing at All.
First run in over a week, not good when your race is 2wks away.
