Be My On a Dime Valentine

_
with 0 Comments

Since we just celebrated Christmas, my husband's birthday and our first year Anniversary in the span of two weeks (and have a kid on the way, yikes!) I have decided that it is perfectly acceptable to be thrifty this Valentine's Day.

Not all V day gifts need to come encased in a small velvet jewelry or heart shaped candy box, so I'm going to show my love for my dearest by making my way to his heart through his stomach.

I figured I'd try out my maternal baking skills with this yummy Vanilla Bean Cookie recipe I found from teach.eat.love. The recipe doesn't look too difficult, and it'll make a great photo op for the baby one day, seeing mommy with flour brushed on her nose in the days when she was barefoot, pregnant and baking for daddy.

I think it's nice to take the anti-chocolate, anti-materialistic road less traveled every once in a while, and it will help avoid any cocoa related eczema flare ups. He may not be getting any chocolate but this mama-to-be ain't getting any champagne either, so I guess we're even.

What are you whipping up for your loved one this V day?

xoxo,
