My Hubby's 30th Birthday Dinner

Time for the truth....I am married to a younger man. In fact, I am a whole 352 days older. Now that we have entered our 30s he makes fun of me for being "old." Well, at least we are the same age for 13 days. We went out to dinner last night with some of our family. Although the service wasn't great, we always enjoy our time together.

Our family of four:

My hubby's grandparents (I tried 3 times to get a pic that wasn't blurry. Oh, well):

My parents:

This is Madison's first year to exchange Valentines. I have been thinking about them for a month now.  I wanted to design them myself so they could be personalized.  Here is what I came up with!

I bought cellophane bags which we will fill with candy.  The Valentines I designed will be folded over the opening of the bags and stapled to secure them. We are going to assemble them today! I can't wait. Madison is excited too!

First my daughter, then my son, then my husband and now me!!! My kids had RSV last week, I'm not sure what my husband had or what I have, but I have no energy. Bleh! I'm ready for us all to feel good at the same time, AND I am ready for sunshine and warm weather!!!

Here is a pic of me and my big girl taken a few weeks ago. I can't believe she is getting so big!

Super Bowl Sunday

Ok, so Super Bowl Sunday is all about the food and commercials for me. Sure, there is a game on, but I can't wait for the commercial breaks.  I use game time to refill my plate, and I make sure to be back on the couch for the 3 minute slots in between! I kid, I kid! I'll watch the game too. ;)
I am having a dilemma over who to cheer for....I immediately said I would be cheering for the Steelers, because I think cheese-heads are SUPER CHEESY! Pardon the pun. However, my husband filled me in on the accusations against Ben. He is the Steelers' quarterback for those like me who didn't know. He has been accused of some very bad things. Innocent until proven guilty, I know, BUT if it is true.....I DON'T WANT HIM TO WIN. I may cheer for everyone on his team except for him, because I still don't think I can cheer for someone with cheese on their head. I'm sorry if any Packer fans read this.  I am sure the team is great, and you are great, and maybe it is fun to wear the cheese...I don't know.

I am soooooo off topic here. This post was supposed to be all about the food. We are going to serve a small array of items:

Pigs in a Blanket

That is it, for now....  What are you fixing for the game?
