Today I'm recapping my Valentines Day weekend. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend. I'm looking forward to this weekend because my mom and I are going to look at my bridal shower venue!
I've been wanting to make my fiance this Pinterest recipe I saw because I thought he would like it. It's just white chocolate covered popcorn. So I went to the store on Saturday before the snow storm (bad idea) and picked up my three simple ingredients.
- White chocolate
- Popcorn (I picked up the butter lovers but I think it would work with any kind)
- Brach's conversation hearts for more of a crunch.
Tah-Dah! It was as simple as making the popcorn, melting the white chocolate(I did it in a microwave for 2 minutes and drizzling it over the popcorn). Once I did that, I laid the popcorn on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and let the chocolate harden back up. It was taking a while and I was impatient so I threw the cookie sheet in the freezer and it was hardened in less than 2 minutes. And then I just threw the hearts in and it was done in less than 15 minutes!
While in the grocery store I picked up the new Knot magazine. LOVE!
My gift for Valentines Day was the Kat Von D contour palette and the contour brush. Luckily this palette comes with instructions because I need it. I have never attempted to contour my face before, but I am going to give it a try.
On Saturday I did some online shopping for some things for the wedding. I was looking at jewelry, shoes and a veil. Thank god for my mom!
My mom helped me pick out my veil, this isn't the one I chose but isn't this one just adorable?!
Saturday my fiance worked so we didn't go out to celebrate Valentines Day. I think this is the year we officially stopped celebrating or just put it on hold. And I completely understand because we're planning a wedding and weddings get expensive or at least that's where all your money goes! Low and behold he surprises me with flowers, balloon and Snoopy. I cried, literally, that was so sweet of him to surprise me like that.
(please excuse my messy kitchen)
I literally have nothing to share from Sunday. All I did was clean and put things away from my fiance's birthday weekend.
Have a great Tuesday night!
