Valentine's Day

Oh Valentine's day. How I love thee, let me count the ways...

But seriously, who doesn't love a day dedicated to love?

This year I toned down my self love a little bit and celebrated with heart shaped macaroons and cherry donuts for breakfast.

And can we take a sec to discuss the cherry donuts? I've been in Houston for 3.5 years, and this is the first time I was able to get warm cherry donuts from Shipleys. Def not worth the wait. They were alright, but can't even compare to Donut Stop. 

BUT I did turn up the office love. I made them multiple treats throughout the week and handed out Justin Bieber and Hello Kitty valentines.

Donuts with Cherry Icing: recipe here

 The quarterly blood drive was that day, so I shared the love and my blood.

Steve made me a Justin Bieber card that included and automated wink. It was perfect! And he sent flowers.

That night I showed my self a good time by pole dancing - err...I had class. After class I jetted over to Los Cucos to have dinner with Amanda, Brittany, and Taffan.

Pretty solid Valentine's Day.

  1. These donut pictures induced a major craving! For some reason in Chicago, they think Dunkin Donuts counts as "real donuts." Sadly, they do not. I frequently miss Shipley's pink sprinkled donut, my main jam :)

    Happy Monday!

  2. All of these treats look delish! Love following your blog, and I nominated it for the Liebster at mine:
