Yesterday was amazing! Clay & I had such a good time making dinner together and relaxing.. it was so romantic.
He had these beauties delivered to the house along with chocolates.. he is the best!
We made short ribs + veggies (slow cooked for 8 hours), shallot mashed potatoes, asparagus, crescent rolls (my fav) and pink champagne! For dessert: homemade carmel heath bar crunch gelato + red velvet cupcakes.
Quite possibly the best short ribs we have ever had!
Our cute place settings 🙂
❤ Cutest husband ❤
We ended the night relaxing by a fire, drinking wine & watching The Bachelor – Best night ever!! And yes my man likes The Bachelor. Lucky me!
What did you do for Valentine’s Day? Did you go out to dinner or keep it low key like us?

Since doing the Love Wall in our living room I kept feeling like there was something missing.
I had seen this on Pinterest awhile ago & loved it
So I started browsing Etsy for this print. I found one I wanted for $60 + $20 shipping eekks
then I thought why don’t I just make my own print?! I did a goggle image search for “fuchsia” (since that’s the color I wanted the background to be) then I busted out Picnik, decided on a font I liked – I chose FF Oxide Stencil font
And there you have it! I spray painted the antique love story frame that was used in our wedding + the large frame in the middle. I used Glossy White Rust-oleum spray paint. I was so over the dark color wood. What do you think? Better right?
This would make THE cutest Valentine’s Day gift, not to mention it’s quick & easy and costs practically no money to make!
I really think the white brightens up the wall + I’m loving the fuchsia love print!
To remind you, here’s what the wall looked like Pre – Benjamin Moore Bird’s Egg paint:
Do you have any cute Valentine’s gift ideas? Do share!
Hope you all have a Happy Valentine’s Day!!
