My Valentine's Day

We keep it pretty low key around here for Valentine's day, but that's how we like it!

We met my mom and sister for breakfast at a place we discovered once while out exploring called breakfast time.

The first flower of the year bloomed that day!  Crocus always used to bloom on my birthday but it's been unusually cold here so this guy was a week late.

For lunch we got the crazy idea to make grilled cheese chip sandwiches. Man were they good!



I noticed the cats had chewed some of my plants so I took that as a hint that they wanted more greens in their life, and planted some cat grass.

For dinner we stopped by a gas station for some snacks and picked up a little Caesars pizza. We also ordered a jalapeno  cheese sauce and dipped our pizza in it. It was divine. I recommend it. 

So it was mostly a lazy day spent eating strange foods, and what a good day it was!



Also, head on over to my mom's blog Make it Special for lovely Valentine's day photos from around her home!

How did you spend your Valentine's day?

  2. Sounds like such a relaxing day, especially by the food!
    I'll have to try making a grilled-cheese like that soon. :)
    For Valentine's Day, I ate pizza, chocolate cake, had a mini spa day at home, and watched Netflix. Hahaha

  7. I have such a love for chip (or as us Brits call them crisp) sandwiches, especially when tuna is involved. Tasty! So jealous you have some little bulbs peeking though! I'm hoping mine are keeping okay under all the snow that won't seem to melt.

    1. I didn't realize until recently that British people enjoy chip sandwiches, I thought I had invented them when I was younger, hahaha.

  9. Aww your mom blogs too?! That's so cool! And grilled cheese chip sandwiches? Is this an actual thing or did you invent this in some crazy kitchen experiment? I'm literally going to go try this right now haha. I can't go on in life and *not* know what that tastes like.

    1. I used to eat them all the time un-grilled, but we got a little wild and decided to grill them! I thought I had invented it but I guess they're actually a thing!

  10. Lovely photos, and your cats are adorable. I spent my V-day at a nice restaurant and hotel by the bay. It was really great. Your mom's blog is awesome by the way and so is yours.

    Would you like to follow each other?
