Happy Valentine's Day!

It started as a snowy (slightly snowy) day here in Lancaster County, PA. It was beautiful!


 I see the sun =)


Looks like a pretty day ahead!

It is a pretty day but the snow is doing a fast disappearing act. After taking Gina to work this morning, I stopped at Ollie's again. Last week I got two bags of Starbucks Holiday Blend coffee. I wanted to try it first before I bought more. Well, it is really good. The price is a steal so I went back for more. Oh how I hoped there would be more. There was! How can you go wrong at $2.99 for a bag of Starbucks?? (my V-gift to me, hehe!)



Last evening my Hubby brought home these for me....

 I do not need big gifts, expensive gifts, or lots of gifts...
a bunch of flowers from the grocery store was special, indeed.
Even more special, because I wasn't expecting a thing!

Imagine my surprise when Gina handed me this.....
Just the other day we went by a Cracker Barrel billboard.
I said, Mmmm, Cracker Barrel breakfast.
I guess Gina was listening!!!

For dinner tonight I plan on making some kind of chicken, a green bean dish with bacon and we'll have the cookies I made yesterday (chocolate chip  minus the chips - dark choc M&M's instead. Oh, yes, they are good!).

A special Valentine's Day to you!

Wow!! That is a GREAT price for that coffee. Wish I had time to check our Ollie's for it.

How sweet of both Dale and Gina!
