Weekend Recap...(Valentines Edition)

My weekend was cut very short, because I had class on Saturday. By time I woke up it was time for class and way too late to do anything afterward. All the weekend the boy had been telling me that he wasn’t going to go all out this year for Valentines Day, since he had just splurged on my ring so I wasn’t expecting anything. But being the sweetheart I feel in love with, I was surprised at work with a delivery of roses, chocolates and a cute little teddy bear and to make the day even better I was surprised that night with an amazing meal (he cooked himself) and chocolate covered strawberries. (I guess he is a keeper!!)


In class on Monday one of my classmates made the cutest little felt valentines (which of course I forgot to take a picture of). She made little felt hearts, pieces of bacon, eggs, butter and tacos. All in all I had a wonderful Valentines Day!!

In class were doing custards and mousses for the next couple of weeks and last night I got to try Crème Brulee for the first time.

OH MY BABY JESUS….that stuff was so amazing. Its like eating creamy vanilla with a crunchy crust on top…AMAZING!!!

 I still love culinary school despite the schedule and being exhausted 99% of my week. The only thing I dislike is how high school it can feel. It’s been a very long time since I’ve been in an environment where people are so childish, gossipy and get their feelings hurt so easily.

A lot of people are not focused on the big picture of learning culinary arts. They come to school to see who likes them and how many friends they can make. It can get quite old dealing with the nonsense and drama that can ensue during class time, but knowing how hard it was for me to be able to attend this school, helps me see past a lot of that. Also I got another scholarship a few weeks ago, I had applied for it last year and got called that I won it.  Things like that make it so worth it, along with knowing what I will achieve this upcoming November.  I am actually consider taking the culinary end of the program after this.  That program would focus on food overall...but its something I am still pondering.

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day, and I leave you with one of my favorite songs of the week.  A definite Valentines mushy song, its a little cheesy, but this is exactly how I feel about my LOVE!!


  1. awe that sounds like SUCH an amazing romantic time.<3

  2. He sure is a keeper. ;)
    I know what you mean. College so far has been alright for me, but one of my jobs is like high school all over again. I can't wait to quit!


  3. You don't know me from Adam... but I read your blog ALL the time and I adore you! I just want to say how happy I am for you and you hubs to be! I think what you are doing in pursuing your dream is also completely inspiring!


  4. Creme Brulee is the best, especially if its done right!!

  5. I just wanted to drop by and thank you for your sweet sweet comment. It was and still is definitely a hard thing to go through, but I know things will happen when and the the way they are suppose to happen.
    Anyways I love your blog. You and I have a lot of the same taste in things. Especially a mutual love for pink and girly stuff. I wish you nothing but the best.
    Oh and I totally understand what you mean about high school drama. It is so obnoxious and it unfortunaately seems to be that there will always be people like that. Just continue to keep your attitude positive and your head held high!!!!!

  6. Awww that was so sweet of him. Stay focused hon. You have been working so hard and almost to the finish line :)


Thanks for showing me some love!
