It’s almost Valentine’s Day!!!
As I have already mentioned I love Valentine’s Day! This is our first Valentine’s Day since getting married, and my husband will be on the other side of the country for work….but have made plans for the weekend after Valentine’s Day 🙂
This week is going to be crazy, my Mum is coming to visit from Friday until Tuesday, we have an audition for Family Feud on Saturday, we have a concert on Monday and Marc flies to Perth Monday and I also have 135 cupcakes and 4 cakes to make between Tuesday and Thursday along with working full time and blogging.
Wow, when I write it all down like that it’s kind of overwhelming, oh an of course there is house stuff going on as well, I think we have finalised our design YAY!!
Life is crazy right now but crazy is also fun and i wouldn’t change anything, I am working towards the kind of life I want and if that means that I have to work twice as much to make it happen that’s ok.
I am planning on writing a post about my wedding, we organised everything ourselves and made so many DIY items and I made our cake! But for now I just wanted to share a photo that makes me happy every time I see it. Its myself and my husband with our two best friends, I didn’t have any bridesmaids just my maid of honor man and Marc just had a best man. I wouldn’t be where I am in life without them and their support and I could never thank them enough.
Here is a round up of links I am loving on the interwebs this week…
I am super intrigued to try this Aquafaba Chocolate mousse, aquafaba is the liquid that comes from cooked chickpeas. I have seen a few recipes using it but i have been hesitant to try them this chocolate mousse could be the one.
Once again i am loving recipe from Jess at How Sweet Eats! I can’t help it she makes the most delicious sounding thinsg and her photos are amazing. This week i am craving Beer Brownies yes that’s right beer brownies!!! and Key Lime Berergaritas, can you see a pattern here? It’s not secret that i love beer and these recipes sound amazing!
Sweet potatoes may be my favorite vegetable, i just love them and i especially love them when they are roasted, and these Melting Sweet Potatoes are calling to me i need to eat them they look so caramely and decadent!
I have always wanted to make puff pastry but i find the process very intimidating, however Adrianna over at A Cozy Kitchen has simplified the process with a Step by Step guide to Rough Puff and i am definitely going to be trying this this weekend! I will share my results with you.
And i had to include some more valentine’s inspiration…
This Sweetheart Swirl Bark is so adorable and so perfect to gift to your girlfriends!
Or if that’s not quite up your alley maybe this Hazelnut Sugar Cookie Cereal is just what you have been looking for? I love this idea, i never thought to make my own cereal and this one is just so cute!! with those mini hearts and sweet tiny pink meringues I dying from the cuteness over here!!!
And lastly if like me you will be spending Valentine’s Day alone maybe you want a gorgeous breakfast to start your day? Then this Raspberry and Cacao Smoothie Bowl is perfect so pretty and pink it practically screams Happy Valentines Day to you!!
However you spending your Valentine’s Day i hope your day is filled with love and happiness!!
