Lovely Weekend

I just couldn’t resist the pun : )

Happy Valentine’s Day!  I spent the weekend with the hubs.  We had a purposefully non eventful weekend and it was wonderful!  Saturday morning, we were up early for a workout.  Afterwards, we headed over to Geneva to stock up on spices from The Spice House and stopped for a sweet snack at All Chocolate Kitchen.

I thought we were just going to swing by and grab a warm drink, but when the BOY suggested we sit and enjoy a treat, I happily agreed!

I got an Affogato (dark chocolate sea salt gelato + espresso) and the BOY enjoyed a rich hot chocolate.  We split the most delicious cookie and pecan bar.

After that, we swung by a fun (and fancy) grocery store out in that direction to pick up dinner.  We spent the rest of Saturday hanging out at home before cracking open some Napa wine and playing games.

For dinner, we had crab cakes and scallops on the salt block with roasted broccoli.  We had leftovers from ACK for dessert and then played a few more rounds of yahtzee.  Cooper made himself at home on the table checking out dinner.

Sunday morning, I woke up and decided to have a lazy day!  The BOY and Cooper were only too happy to join me.  I read on the couch and then took a nap.  The BOY made chili in the crockpot for dinner.  We went out once to pick up Mediterranean for lunch and then came back to watch the disappointing Indiana game just as the snow started to fall.  I spent the afternoon cleaning up around the house and then laid back down to finish my book.  Ever since we got back from vacation, I have been a reading machine!

I attempted to make a dairy free chocolate mousse but accidently put the low fat coconut milk into the fridge last night so although the taste was yummy, my texture was off : (  Luckily, the BOY made some cookies and cream ice cream so we were not without sweets on Valentine’s Day!  And I plan to pick up the right coconut milk and will hopefully have a recipes to share with ya’ll soon.

Sunday night involves chili and a movie…we are thinking The Martian.  It has been so fun to hang out with my loves on Valentine’s day.  Hope you had a sweet weekend!
