2. Our Valentine's Soirée.
Our tradition of a fancy dinner at home was expanded to include a few friends and kiddos of course. On the menu: Orange baked brie, caesar salad wedge, oven-roasted beef tenderloin, green beans amandine, herbed- buttered ciabata, and a variety of sweet desserts. And delicious wine. But I'm not a wine person so I can't tell you more than that. Kid's Menu: milk en sippy cup, heart-shaped mini cheese pizzas, and a few green beans too.
We moved dinner outside this year since we've been experiencing 80 degree days and mild nights.

7. I live with a pair of clones. One is a little smaller than the other but they act, speak, think the same... and its all very different than the way I do/speak/think. But I love them anyway. And life is good (but I hope Leo is a little bit like me- just for fairness sake!).
