A “Me Day” V-Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my sweetheart readers out there!

I hope you are all getting your fill of chocolatey sweets today…in the name of the holiday, of course! ;)

I started my day off with a little chocolate covered love from Katie in the form of a bowl of Voluminous Oats that was appropriately drizzled with some rich chocolate goodness!

In the bowl:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • a handful of chopped fresh steebies

To make my voluminous bowl a little creamier, once the oats were warmed up this morning, I processed them in my Magic Bullet until pink and pretty! Then I topped them with vanilla almond granola, MaraNatha Dark Chocolate Almond Butter, and a few steebie hearts! <3

I’ve never been much of a V-Day celebrator, but it’s always fun to have an excuse to play with my food! ;)

As a “single lady” (cue Beyonce if you will), today also gives me an excuse to sit around on the couch looking like this…

eating plenty of these…

And because I’m a definite kid at heart, watching this…

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I’m going to work on getting the chocolate out from under my nails give myself a manicure and cuddle up with my “date” for the night!

“See” you loves tomorrow!

How are you celebrating this Valentine’s Day?

    I celebrated by having a party for my third graders were sugar, sugar, and sugar was consumed.
    Then I couched Girls on the Run, talked with my hubby, and made myself a nice dinner. Not bad, I just wish my hubs was here though!

    • Ahhh, snow days and sugar-filled holiday parties! If that’s is all there was to teaching, I would have signed up YEARS ago! So sorry the hubs can’t spend the holiday with you. Hopefully you will have an even better celebration when you’re together again!
