Team Steamie’s first married Valentines Day. It’s really nice to have a forever valentine. We talked about it a bit though- while we’re lovey dovey & lucky that we we take the time to remind each other we care daily, having a day dedicated to doing just that is still pretty fun.
Like most things- we made a weekend of it… spreading a little valentines fun throughout the weekend.
First- Color Me Valentine. I always want to go paint strange pottery items at Color Me Mine, but generally Steve doesn’t seem to want to join in! haha- I can’t imagine why not. But he’s a sweety & surprised me with a gift card (enough for BOTH of us to play) for Christmas. Saturday we cashed in. We picked something functional- and teamed up on painting a little tea pot. I painted the pot & Steve painted the lid. (totally equal team work!) In true Team Steamie style, there will be stripes, polka-dots & even a surprise heart inside! We’ll get to pick it up next week all fired & glazed and… we’ll get to see what the paint colors really look like ! 🙂
p.s. Steve’s so hard at work being an artist!
Sunday we made a simple, but yummy dinner & then some of TJ’s famous “reduced guilt brownies” – formerly known as “no-pudge” (wonder why they changed the name) I made them in a heart baking pan, and added a little v-day flare of conversation hearts. Served it up on one of our vintage cake stands left over from the sweets table at the wedding! Voila- heart brownie fabulousness.
Tonight we’re heading to dinner at The Arches in Newport- updates to follow & hopefully a cute non-iphone pic of us too- celebrating our third valentines day together. (Also- I’ll try no to think about today also serving as my 1/2 birthday- meaning the 6 months to thirty countdown is on! eeek!)
