At least in this household.
In the past 8 days, we have made pumpkin-mushroom raviolis, potato gnocchi, and pizza. All from scratch, including the sauce. Did you know Michael is Italian?
I am a huge lover of salty and sweet together. Hence what was on my pizza:
|There are no words. Just so dang good.|

Did you know that apparently it is very much of the "in" thing to make your own Valentine cards? Well it is. Friends like Stephanie, Avery, and friends of Jennifer have all done it. I'm not on Pinterest but I have a hunch that that site is riddled with DIY Valentines and fancy pictures to accompany them. So, I have totally bit the bullet and followed suit. I didn't actually anticipate posting about my homemade creativity, but I was pleasantly surprised! Design is not my thing. Words are my thing. But today, I actually made something nice, and Michael didn't believe me when I told him that yours truly made it. Will wonders never cease.
What made me chuckle is that Michael said earlier today that nothing really says it like the Good Book can. We both ended up quoting Scripture in our little Valentine's Day gifts (the above is from Matthew 12:34) Will wonders never cease! That is such a good expression. I think my favorite ever. Will wonders never cease.
Lastly, and this is totally not related to anything else in this post, but I totally had a blast from the past last night while lying on a friend's bed talking to Jenn about The Hunger Games. We were of course excited to see TSwift's new music video for the movie (it totally tanked..... so boring.... put me to sleep... not one single clip from the movie was in the video....WHAT?) so we sneaked (snook?) off to watch it. We ended up talking about all three books in exquisite detail that would have made my 10th grade English teacher so proud. Shout out to Mr. Lindsay! Best teacher I've ever had. And I think most of Highland Park would agree..... yes, ladies? Anyway, we talked about the characters, which book we liked the best, the dark plot, the abrupt end to book 3 and how although I was happy with the ending, it certainly needed some elaboration, and the political/war treatise that Suzanne Collins weaves into the story. It was FUN. I love a good book, and even more than that, I love it when friends read the same thing as me and we can talk about it. Jenn -- let's start a book club. I am for realzz.
