i'de say so

i'de say that i a quite possibly the luckiest girl on. the. planet.
this valentines day was perfect.
we loved every second of it.
lets do a little recap, shall we?
ben gets comes home from work with flowers, chewy sprees (they will rock your world) and a cute handmade card that tells me a can choose two of the three things listed
-a gold watch
-a keep calm carry on poster (frame included)
-a sephora gift card.
the kid knows me well.
also, i can't decide so if you have suggestions i'll take them.
we went out to dinner and ate yummy food.
ice skating with his brothers and sisters.
i've never been big into ice skating. scrath that. i've never actually gone ice skating.
but it is my new facorite thing to do.
i love love loved our valenintes date:)
it was just what i needed..
and i couldn't ask for a better person to spend it with.
i brought my camera with me but realized after we left that i forgot the memory card. so i have no proof of our valentines day. touchy subject.

ok i also got an amazing recipe for sugar cookies (courtesy of clare bear) and attempted to make them for valentines day for ben.
final outcome:

for some reason it's not letting me rotate this picture.
here is the recipe:

Sugar Cookies/Frosting


2 c. unsalted butter
1 1/2 c. Sugar
2 eggs
1 teas. vanilla

Then add:

5 c. flour
2 teas. baking powder
1/2 teas. salt

Roll out; cut into shapes
Bake @ 375• for 6-8 mins. on ungreased cookie sheet
Makes 3 1/2 dozen give or take

Powdered Sugar Frosting:

3 c. powdered sugar
1tbls. butter; softened
3/4 teas. vanilla
3 to 6 tbls. milk (I use 5 1/2 tbls.)

Mix sugar, butter, & vanilla. Add milk until desired consistency. Should not be too thick, not too runny. Will harden within 10 mins. if done right. Add food coloring for desired color.
