Our Valentine’s Weekend
Did you and your family have a nice Valentine’s Day — or Valentine’s weekend, as the case may be? We were supposed to be childless this weekend, but the snow kept the in-laws from picking up the kiddos. That’s okay, though. I rather enjoyed having them with us — well, except for the endless bickering on Saturday.
Saturday, we went and did a little shopping. We didn’t find much, but we did get a hot-air popcorn popper. I was thinking it would be healthier and, in the long run, less expensive. I didn’t expect the kids to love it so much. I was afraid they wouldn’t like the taste of the popcorn after being used to the buttery microwave variety. They really like it, though — and they really like playing with the popper. I didn’t think about the fact that they’d all be capable of operating the popper, but they can…and they do! Last night, everyone needed their own, personally-made bowl of popcorn. The fun factor may make the popper less cost-effective than I originally thought.
After our shopping, my sweetheart took his sweethearts to one of our favorite places — Chick-Fil-A. Nope, not terribly fancy or romantic…but, not terribly crowded either! Brian treated all the kids to milkshakes, while I had one of CFA’s tasty new yogurt parfaits.
Then, we went to Wal-mart. Because we’re exiting like that.
Sunday morning, I made my sweethearts this fancy-looking, yummy-tasting, low-fat brunch:
Chocolate crepes. Yum! After brunch, we enjoyed an afternoon at the Y together. They have an indoor, heated swimming pool, which the kids love. There’s something about swimming inside when it’s snowing outside. There’s supposed to be more snow today. *sigh* Have I mentioned that I’m quickly getting sick of this stuff?
How was your Valentine’s Day/Weekend?
Thanks for the link to Gina's WW recipes. That's a new one for me! Those chocolate crepes looked to die for!
Sounds like you had a nice weekend. We are getting pretty tired of the snow here as well. We are supposed to get 3 more inches tonight, and although that is nothing compared to the 3 feet currently on the ground, I am still dreading it.
What a "heart healthy" way to celebrate!
thanks for reminding me! i've been doing popcorn on the stove to avoid the junk in micro-popcorn. a hot-air popper has been on my xmas/bday lists for a while, but no one will get me one. my hubz seems to think they are outdated and no longer made and only available on ebay, but i keep telling him he could probably just get one at walmart. maybe i will just look for one myself when i am there today. i really don't want to wait until mother's day! 🙂
A nice Valentine's weekend. Breakfast looks tasty. Happy belated Valentines Day!
Those crepes look delicious! I'm going to check out the link. 🙂
I spent the weekend on my back with a pulled muscle. I got some meds Monday night and am finally up and doing quite a bit better. Not the way I'd intended to spend Valentine's weekend!
