Happy Valentine's Day!

Although Jeff and I don't celebrate this holiday (not in any official way anyway) we have been spreading Valentine cheer throughout the weekend.  Wes has been delivering his Toy Story Valentines and Jeff and I attempted a Valentine inspired dessert- a recipe from my favorite Top Chef All Stars contestant, Richard Blais.  It's angel food cake made out of a whip creamer and microwaved (kind of gross, but also fun...I would recommend adding vanilla or almond extract if you try it.)

Wes also had French class today, have I mentioned here that he started taking those in January? Today was a particularly hard day, maybe the kids had too much sugar before class? So, I'm exhausted...and Wes is exhausted but the kid is still not sleeping (4:19 pm).

I am planning on making one of Jeff's favorite meals- pasta with chicken meatballs and possibly indulging in THIS recipe again!

Hope you all have a fabulous evening.

***As soon as I published this post I decided it might be a good idea to sneak upstairs and check on Wes. I thought I heard him yell "poop" and well, the bad news is his diaper was off...the good news? He thinks pee is yes, there was a little puddle in the middle of his mattress, but nothing else.  AND he also seems to have fallen right to sleep!***
