Who’s ready for Valentine’s Day?! {Raising hand emoji}

What I’m not ready for is all the sugar I have coming my way this weekend, because let me be honest for a minute. Right now (in pregnant state) I can hardly control myself around sweets. #Struggles

So, husband, if you’re reading this, just send me some oranges, apples, or bananas…maybe covered in chocolate. 😉

When the candy aisles start filling with Valentine’s candy on December 26th, you may feel like you shouldn’t consume one more ounce of candy come Valentine’s Day.

Without taking the yum-factor out of the sweet Valentine exchange, stick with some real foods when sharing the “love” this Valentine’s Day!

Bring on the Love!!

Toasted S’more Espresso Martini

Espresso Martinis have taken this generation by the hand and led us to a land where we don’t have to choose between coffee and alcohol on a night out on the town. LOL! It’s a drink that makes heads turn and the entire table will order one as soon as they’re mentioned....
