Hap-V-Day :)

Good morning and happy valentines day lovers!  Hope everyone treats themselves to some chocolate today, diet or no diet!  I have some great news!  Actually let me just show you...

YAY! :)  I am one very happy person today!  My boyfriend however, is not.  I did not make him breakfast... 

But I will surprise him with a gift (which he doesn't think he's getting anything considering he told me V-day is a "girls" holiday) and perhaps I'll get into making something delish today.  I was going to make dinner but one of my good friends is going through a divorce so I'm taking her out tonight to help get her mind off of it all.

We celebrated our V-day last night with a trip to Olive Garden, mmmmm chicken parm!  I also recieved a beautiful necklace.
You  can't go wrong with jewelry and a kitchenaid mixer!  Now all I'm expecting are some chocolate covered strawberries!
I have a really awesome Orange Pound Cake recipe to share with you guys!
