Valentine Decorations and Awesome Recipe

I know I said in yesterday's post that my fun new Valentine decorations would star in today's blog, but they have been over shadowed by the dinner that workout buddy and neighbor, Rebecca made last night.

Allow me to introduce you to Skinny Taste's Skinny Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Frosting.  They were delicious, the serving size was two "cupcakes" and the points+ value on them is 6.  They were delicious!  The meatloaf is made from ground turkey and has zucchini and onion in it.

Rebecca went all out icing the cupcakes.


She served them with steamed green beans and a little extra potatoes on the side.  Yum.  So, visit Skinny Taste for lots of great slimmed down recipes.  Lunch today will also be compliments of Rebecca and Skinny Taste...Spinach Tortellini en Brodo.  Rebecca had an extra serving just for me!  Can't wait to try it!

And now for my boring new Valentine decorations...only kidding about the boring part...I love them!  I found this wooden heart at Michael's.

It had a small bow on it with a ribbon that I would call a country kitchen style, which isn't my personal style and was also way too small so I bought this polka dot ribbon and worked my magic.  The ribbon was on sale for 3 bucks and the heart was only 6, so it was also an inexpensive project.  Bonus, I had enough ribbon left to decorate my office wreath too!

I found some cute gemstone shaped acrylic pieces to surround my candle at Pier One.  I was pleased with the colors...they match my throw pillows and are Valentine-y without being an overload of pink, hot pink and red.

I like my Valentine decorations to be fun and festive without being too...Valentine-y.  The coasters and the votive holder in the background I have had forever.

I also picked up this cute heart ornament at Pier One and hung it on the mirror in my living room.  I heart it.

These kitchen towels are old but still cute.  The centers of the flowers are hearts.

Do you do any decorating for Valentine's Day or is it just me?
