Valentine's Day inspiration pt 2

necklace: heronadornment on Etsy

I'm finally starting to get over this monster of a cold I've been having, and spending the past three days laying in bed has left me with plenty of time to browse the internet and make little outfit inspiration posts. My fever has finally gone away, though, and I'm hoping I'll be back in full swing tomorrow so I can make some lemon curd and biscuits (and post the recipes!). I tried to make chocolate chip cookies Friday night, but accidentally forgot the baking soda (I am blaming it on being sick) so I ended up baking two dozen hockey pucks. But, if you actually pay attention to the recipe, this recipe makes some of THE BEST cookies. My cousin made me some with dark chocolate, white chocolate, and butterscotch chips, as well as chopped pecans, and they were the best cookies I've ever had. She also suggested using pistachio pudding instead of vanilla, which I think would be yummy.

Tomorrow is Valentine's day, which means after tomorrow I can't make as many posts with hearts/so much pink as I've been doing in recent weeks. My Valentine this year is my cat! He's the only boy I need. I hope everyone allows themselves to be treated to a little something nice tomorrow. I'm planning on buying myself some Reeses Pieces! They're so good, but I never buy myself candy. I'm waiting to buy the chocolate heart boxes until the day after Valentine's day so I can get them on sale ;-)
