Happy Valentines...and 10th Anniversary...its all about love!

If you know us at all, you know we love our holidays and doing them well.  This year, Valentine's Day was on Sunday and even though Sundays are our busiest days, we still had a great one.  Heart toast for breakfast...
 And a special family Valentine's meal with heart ravioli's and chocolate covered strawberries for lunch (and strawberry milk).
And our annual $5 gift swap (we did the following night) turned out well for both of us...a campfire poker for Andy and a new butter dish that matches our kitchen for me :)
This year we celebrated 10 years of marriage.  The best 10 years of my life.  I can't believe how fast it goes when you're having fun.  We were planning on taking a little anniversary trip in March but when we found out we were going to Disney World in February, we decided that would be our trip.  We took a night to celebrate... had a fancy dinner (with a cheese platter as an appetizer), watched fireworks and a water parade on the beach, and had dessert at The Grand Floridian (the fanciest resort at Disney).  
Scallops and brussels sprouts in a squash puree ( mouth is watering thinking about it) and fillet mignon with new potatoes.
Mango Creme Brûlée with fresh fruit
It was the perfect night and I love him.  So.  Much.
We weren't the only ones excited about us going to Disney World.  Oma sent the girls a Disney cookbook.  To make the waiting more fun we did a recipe a week until we left....Beauty and the Beast Roses...
Fairy Godmother Wands...
and Cruella DeVille faces.  
Waiting was hard...but worth it!  Our Magic Bands came in the mail 3 weeks before we left and got us into the parks, our hotel rooms, etc.  They were fun to use and we made them pretty so they were fun to wear too.
That awesome Oma also got us manicures and pedicures so we had beautiful nails for Disney World. 
More Disney fun to come.  Love to you all!
