Sweet Sweeeeeet Birthdays

Today is Don’s 27th birthday! He isn’t crazy about throwing birthday parties or going all out, however, we went to purchase bikes for his birthday present and rode them home. I was pretty excited about that. It something we have been talking about the day we moved into our new house. We have this long trail we can ride less than half a mile away from our home. YIPEE!!! ( more exercise )

For his birthday, I tried to make cup cakes that involve his two favorite sweets: Chocolate and Peanut Butter! I swear every time I turn around the kid is dipping dove choclate into peanut butter. I always think to myself why doesn’t he save the time and the mess by purchasing REESES CUPS..duh right?

I found the PERFECT recipe: Peanut Butter Brownie Buckeye Cupcakes !!!

They are easy..semi-homemade and DELICIOUS ūüôā I did not use the ganache. Honestly, I think the peanut butter icing and the chocolate cake would have over powered it any ways . They were fine for our palate :0)

YUMMMMMMMMY ! Its a MUST TRY recipe ! Image

Thankful Thursday

I have talked much about my boyfriend Don… but I really haven’t spoke much for my furry four legged friend Lola ! She is almost 4 years old and very energetic ! Although she leaves her fur laying everywhere in the house , even dust bunnies can’t find there way to hide in the corners , I am very thankful she is a part of this family ;o) 20120209-205320.jpg20120209-205425.jpg


Our Love Story

Our Love Story ‚̧
 How long have you and your significant other been together?
   РDon and I have been dating for 5 Years and 9 months!
¬†How did you meet? {What’s your “love” story?}
¬† – We actually met through Dons best friend, David! Through my first part of college I worked at an Acura dealership with David. David and I became good friends as we worked together. David introduced me to Don one night when we were all hanging out together. At first, I really had no interest in trying to date anyone. . .¬† nor did I expect to fall in love with someone I was going to be hanging out with that night. Don and I did not exchange numbers that evening. David actually gave Don my AIM ( yes… instant messaging LOL ) screen name. We talked several nights, maybe even a few weeks through instant messaging. Finally, Don asked me to come hang out by the pool one Saturday afternoon. Well, one Saturday led to the next Saturday and that Saturday led to every weekend I was with him. It was actually very natural! One night Don, myself and another couple we were with ( Rachel and Will ) decided to take a bottle of wine to the hot tube and relax. After one glass of wine, Rachel and Will decided to leave. After that things got steamy :0) This was the night of our first kiss and the ‘finalization’ of our relationship. Since then, We have been going steady and loving every minute of it !
 If married, how long have you been married? If not, is this the guy you hope to marry? {do tell}
¬†¬† – Of course this is the guy I hope to marry. any day now please ??? lol. I have learn to become very patient with this situation and I believe¬† it will happen sooner rather than later ūüôā

 Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? Do share!
¬† — Don sometimes calles me Buttercup … I use the typical nicknames…Babe.. Baby …
 Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
— He is my best friend…No DOUBT!¬† We can lay in bed and just make each other laugh with the simplest things and I know he will be there for me if¬† I ever need anything ūüôā
 Tell us how he proposed? Or your ideal proposal?
— Ideal proposal…. At this point anything is ideal :0) LOL !!! I would be so thankful for any kind of proposal !!!
 Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
— To be honest.. none of the above. . .¬† Red wine, ordered in pizza and a great movie ! WE have been doing this for every valentines day we have been together and I absolutely love it!
 Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Both. There is a time for sunset dinners and a movie / couch night. !
¬†Tell us one thing you’d like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
— If I could do ANYTHING … that would be to go to Japan or some other crazy foreign country and eat all the delicious , but weird food.. but as my blog readers know you may have caught that Don is a VERY picky eater.
¬†Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine’s Day.
— Red Wine, Order in pIzza and Watch a movie !
¬†Are you asking for anything this Valentine’s day?
