Valentine’s Day Recap & St. Patty’s Day Ideas

Hi Friends!  How was your Valentine’s Day?

My husband was out of town so we celebrated the weekend before with a casual dinner out and a little shopping.

I needed something to keep me busy while my “lover” was out of town so I turned to my biggest addiction, Pinterst, for some inspiration.  One of my goals was to find an easy treat to make for my colleagues and students.  A second goal was to style an outfit around a new necklace.

The Valentine’s Day Treat:

I ended up being inspired by this…

So I gathered my supplies…

The final product was SO yummy and I loved sharing them with my valentines at school.

Valentine’s Day Outfit:

For all the festivities at school, I wanted to pull an outfit together that was Valentine’s Day-inspired.  I paired a bright pink/purple v-neck t-shirt, cream cardigan, and red jeans with my fun, chunky necklace.

Looking Forward to St. Patrick’s Day?

I love St. Patrick’s Day!  In college we had Green Beer Day…  Now that I am older I enjoy a more “civil” celebration of the holiday.  In the past I have made chocolate, Guiness cupcakes, whiskey rice krispy treats.

Here are the Pinterest links I used:
