Toly's Valentines Day

Happy Friday everyone! We made it through another week and thank goodness because this weekend is a big one for some. Valentines Day is that one holiday where people really love it or hate it. Me, I tend to enjoy most commercial holidays because they bring a reason for cheer and enlightenment. Yes, I know that businesses strive on these days to use it for guaranteed revenue of cheesy little products, but any reason to celebrate a random day every month is a good thing in my mind.
Today, I wanted to do something a little special for Toly since tomorrow he has all kinds of surprised for me planned. (Check back later for details) I decided that I would make him a romantic dinner of one of his favorite dishes....strawberry stuffed french toast. (I've blogged about this before and you can find the recipe in my recipe label) I came home from work to a bouquet of white roses on my table which went perfect with the ambiance of the table scape. I also got him a little goodie bag of candy and lotto tickets just for kicks.
Dinner was fantastic and very romantic. Now we are planning on resuming our Friday night tradition with Friday Night Lights, but tonight no ice cream. I have a special V-day dessert planned of Chocolate Covered Strawberries. Mmmm, nothing says love like a decanted chocolate strawberry!
Have a wonderful night!

I remember to take a picture this time. This french toast is purely divine!

  1. your blog is too cute!!!! Ok let me answer your question about soreness. You must ice first and then heat. Here is a good way to ice the calfs. Take a small trash can and fill it up with ice and then stick out legs into it, I know this will be hard to do at first but get passed the first couple minutes, and I promise you will get through the coldness. It realy does help!!!

  2. i usually run 20 miles a week when not training. i don't think there is one magic number that works for everyone. it depends on what kind of endurance you would like to maintain when you aren't actively training. for example, if you seek to always be in 5K shape, you don't need to run as far as you would if you want to always be in 10K shape (which is how i am). also, some people can run 20 miles a week without any problems, but other people will experience muscle and joint pain or exhaustion from running that distance each week. i think its really just a personal preference!
