Be My Valentine

Happy Valentine's Day!
Okay, a little late, but you get the point. :)
We had a very low key, but still special, V-Day. 
Here is our table set before our dinner. We had steak, baked potato and salad. Russell and I cooked it all together.

 I also made Raspberry Squares for our Valentine dessert. Three points per square is not too bad, right?
I found this picture on Pinterest. I love it. It will be our verse for today. I believe it should be the meaning of V-day! Hope y'all have an awesome week!

Grammy Night

Oh, how I love music. I try to watch the Grammy's every year. I also knew Adele was predicted to win every award she was nominated for. And.....she did! I loved her dresses, her performance, and even her makeup!

Carrie Underwood looked fantastic, I thought! She is another one of my favorites! She sang a song with Tony Bennett. Interesting combination, but their voices sounded good together.

How can I talk about the grammy's without mentioning Jennifer Hudson singing, "I Will Always Love You?" It was so good and it was impossible to not have chills during that performance. I don't know how she did it under the circumstances.

 It was so  sad to hear about Whitney Houston. She was so talented throughout the years. I leave you with a song everyone knows from her.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Psalm 100:1

Sweet Things!

Ahh, February...the month of love, hugs, and kisses. Ya gotta love it! I just wanted to share a few things I like right now.
 I can't wait til this movie, The Vow, comes out tomorrow! I am sure it will be so good! Any movie based on a Nicholas Sparks book will be good!
 I am loving Vintage Valentine's lately. I thought this one was cute.
 I saw these on Pottery Barn website the other day and I just fell in love with them! Soo adorable for the whole month of February!

And speaking of "sweet things".....
I can't wait to make these Weight Watchers cupcakes that are 5 points per serving! I know they would be less points without the icing and maybe you can use a dusting of powdered sugar, instead. That, my friends, is a very sweet thing! :)

I hope y'all are having a wonderful day! XOXO!

Greater love has noone than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

Just an update!

I wanted to share a quick Weight Watchers update with y'all. I'll say it again. It works! Thirteen pounds are gone! I am so excited and I am definitely going to keep going with this program. Again, if you are considering losing weight or to just get healthy, WW is by far, the best in my opinion. I think that drinking water, eating more fruits and veggies and staying active really are key points to losing weight. And bonus: because I am on WW, I still enjoyed a piece of that wonderful birthday cake on Friday, but I still lost 3 lbs this week! It's definitely possible and it definitely works! Hope y'all have an awesome day!

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
