friday favorites: the lurve one

'Twas the Friday before Valentine's Day and all through the house...
Emily had candy stored. For her, not for a mouse. 

While rhyming is oh so fun, let's get on with it.

Favorite Song
Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton
This. On repeat. Non-stop. All I want in life (right now...) is to slow dance in the kitchen to this song. LIKE FO' REAL, Freddie. Come on. 

Favorite Food
Strawberry Nutella Pop tarts
This was taken pre-oven time. Trust me, they look a lot more blog worthy post-oven time. 
The first Valentine's we were dating I made Freddie Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. (spoiler alert: one of my good friends in college actually made them, but technicalities). The second Valentine's Day we were dating I made Strawberry Nutella Pop tarts. Then it kind of became a thing where each Valentine's Day I make him some kind of strawberry treat. Here we are now about to celebrate our fourth (?) (math is hard) V-day together and all he talks about are those dang pop tarts. So this thing where I make him strawberry treats is about to become a thing where I only make him Strawberry Nutella Pop tarts. I can dig this thing, and I can also eat all these things
Now go make some things and start your own pop tart V-day thing.

Favorite Valentine's Day Decor
Valentine's candy
My sister sent me this in the mail yesterday. I feel like no other statement should have so much meaning to my husband. I love me some candy. 
I also love my husband.
But candy.  

Favorite Pilates Move
Pilates Double Leg Stretch
In keeping with our February is the month of eating chocolate working abs theme we are going to move from Single Leg Stretch straight into Double Leg Stretch. There are several variations of this move, but let's just focus on this one for now.
  Pro-tips: same as before..Keep your tailbone heavy.  Your lower back does not get to imprint on the floor. Gaze down at your low belly while reaching arms and legs out on diagonals to make sure it's staying flat across and not pooching up. B-r-e-a-t-h-e. It's good for you. 

Favorite Valentine's Day Card
The amount of time I have spent browsing Etsy for funny Valentine's Day cards is not embarrassing at all. Because it is hashtag necessary and fun. This shop is my absolute favorite shop from which to get cards, and I'm not even getting paid to say that! ! ! That's how freaking fantastic these cards are.
But this one takes the Valentine's Day cake...
Etsy Valentine's cards

Happy Friday!
Linking up with Karli and Amanda

Those pop tarts look soooo good! Super random, but where is your couch from? We found a similar one, and it'd be funny if it was the same one! Have a great weekend :)

Oh man that 'I love you more than candy' sign is the best. I really love me some candy too (it's nice to find someone who gets it) so Michael really should be honored that I love him more. Those pop tarts...YUM!

Carly Messmer said...

Yummm to strawberry treats! :) Jared has been whipping up chocolate covered strawberries like once every 2 weeks 'just because' and I'm not hating it! ;) The candy statement would be HUGE from me as well. I LOVE MY CANDY!
