This weekend we celebrated




Each other

Those are just some of the things I think of when I think of Carleton's and my relationship and the love we share. Ok enough with the mushy stuff... other things we enjoyed this weekend were good friends and food!

Thanks to Chantel for teaching me how to make these cookies! She shared her icing tips, bottles, sugar cookie recipe, everything to help this cookie making attempt run as smoothly as possible! I'm sure she would do a much better job, but this was my first time making the icing, and baking the cookies (with a lot of help from Allison and Kristin!) all from scratch! I wanted something special for the kids I teach in primary and decided on these! Friday night we met at Allison's around 9:30, we finished baking and went home just after 1am. The next day we started to decorate! Here is the piping:
Then we flooded and decorated them!

Inside this box are some of the most amazing truffles I've ever had...they're currently in my desk at work and I CANNOT stop eating them...I opened them last night, 36 truffles...pretty sure there's like half that left, oops :/
My daddy sent me flowers at work on Friday. He's a great dad:)

I hope everyone had a great valentines day/weekend/week and spent it with someone they love: a spouse, friend, significant other, dog, whoever!
