What It All Comes Down To…

A glimpse into the life of our family. Some ideas, insight, recipes, and crafts. Maybe a baby picture or two.

Valentines in Valentines February 8, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — What It All Comes Down To @ 2:57 pm

Every year since we moved to Virginia, we have mailed our Valentines from the Valentine VA post office.  It’s located about 20 miles from our house, quite close to the N. Carolina state line. 

It was windy and cold today in Valentine! Nothing here except an old general store/post office. Bus loads of people will make the trek to have their cards postmarked with the Valentine's stamp.


We’re also making pretzel dots today.  Easy and pretty cute.  Melt Hershey’s kisses on pretzels then top with an M&M.  Addictive.

Unadorned pretzel dots.


Mmmmm. Finished dots. Healthy? No! Delicious? Yes!

We got really wild and tried some Reese’s Peanutbutter Cups AND Rolos too.  Oh yeah, we totally know how to get crazy here.

ETA:  Rolo dots are the best.  I had to eat three to be certain. 

Just because I like this picture......
