Happy Valentine's Day!

I got to spend the majority of this special day with my favorite little Valentine! Parker and I had so much fun together! We started off our morning with a special V-day breakfast and the day just got better from there! What a blessing LOVE is from God! Happy Valentine's day everyone, I hope your day was special in some way!

My precious little Valentine eating his breakfast!

I made him heart shaped toast with his favorite on butter!
No, I didn't intentionally put the toast right where the doggy eyes are supposed to be on his plate! I just noticed how funny that looks! :)


Being silly eating his lunch!

After nap time, we got daddy his favorite drink and surprised him at the office!

I love this boy!!

Reading all his Valentine cards that came in the mail today.

Love from daddy before bed time.

Sweet James came through the door with these beautiful flowers tonight! I can't wait for those lilies to bloom!

James and I actually celebrated our date night Saturday night, so I made this awesome salad for us tonight. It's called chicken Florentine salad and it's our FAVORITE!!!
Have I posted this recipe before? Can't remember. It's worthy of a second post if so!

Here it is (for two)
1 bag of spinach chopped up
2 grilled chicken breasts
sliced sun dried tomatoes
sliced black olives
diced roma tomatoes
1/4 box of cooked orzo pasta
toasted almonds or pine nuts

1/4 c. red wine vinegar
2 T honey
1/2 t salt
2 garlic cloves roasted (wrap in foil, drizzle with olive oil and bake for 25 min on 400)
1/2 c. EVOO
1 lemon juiced

For the salad ingredients, I just eye ball everything, add more or less as desired. Combine all ingredients in a big salad bowl. Put dressing ingredients in a food processor and pour over salad! You will love this salad!!
* I'm obsessed with orzo pasta so I tend to add more! :) Make sure you toast the nuts!
