Ok, I know I already did my post for today, but I just had to share my Valentine's Day gift.
I got a call bright and early this morning, asking if I would like to spend the day with a certain little Monkey. Well, is the Pope Catholic?!
We had a delightful morning of play before she literally fell asleep in her highchair while eating a cracker! Hahaha!! She looked like this for the next THREE hours!
Her mommy sent her with a pretty cute shirt today.
She was actually wearing a "pretty" today. "Pretty" is her word for jewelry. My mom bought this bracelet for her on their last cruise (about 2 weeks ago). It has a little dolphin on it, which is perfect since she's currently obsessed with "fishies."
Look how cute she was when she was ready to leave!! (Yes, I know the first one is completely blurry.)
Here's what I ended up throwing together for dinner tonight. I hadn't anticipated having Monkey all day, so dinner was really just an afterthought.
I made our usual salad. We can, and do, eat it almost every single night. Mixed greens, kalamata olives, tomatoes, and feta.
For my little Stud Muffin, I made spinach, sauteed in olive oil, with lots of thinly sliced garlic.
I did serve shrimp, like I said I was going to, but I did absolutely nothing to it. Thankfully, it was fully cooked, so all I had to do was thaw it under running water for a while.
We enjoyed some strawberries for dessert. I snapped a picture of them to show you, because they were HUGE, but I realized after I put it here, that you can't tell how big they are. I should have put something next to them to serve as a reference. You can sort of tell, as that's a paper towel, not a napkin, that they're on here. Well, trust me, they were about as big as my palm! Man, I would have LOVED it if these had been dipped in chocolate. :(
