Tuesdays are usually our low key day. It seems to be the only day of the week that we don't ever have anything going on. So we focused on hearts! We started the morning out with this yummy sweetheart smoothie (frozen raspberries and strawberries, a little banana, cranberry juice, fresh coconut meat and coconut water), and almond banana chocolate chip muffins.

This year we decided to stay in and have a simple dinner at home as a family. I did spunk up the table a bit more than usual. :) On the menu was herb and garlic marinated chicken breasts and roasted veggies...and for dessert we had chocolate covered strawberries. I even went all out and made the potatoes in the shape of a heart!
...and a special cranberry slush drink with a crazy straw. :)

Will could not wait to open his mailbox to see what was inside!(car and note from me)...and in Thad's was a paper for each month of the year with a planned out date. I got the idea here. It was fun to be more creative this year...I am thinking a special family Valentine's dinner might be a new tradition. So much better than going out with the crowd. :)
...and from my hubbs to me- the most gorgeous array of flowers and cheesecake bites! yum!
How was your day of love?
