Are you feeling left out of the Valentine’s Day love fest without a partner?  Look around my friends no one is totally alone.  How can I say that while your head wags no, and you are convinced I have no idea what I’m talking about?  Well okay you can sit on the sofa lamenting your alone status or make it day and night to wallow in the love surrounding us everyday….even stuff we don’t see! 

Children are a special love, and will be honored to be your Valentine.  Having happiness and love is a choice!  Children give unconditionally they love mommy, daddy,brother,sister,Aunt, Uncle, Grandparents, and best of all honorary family too.  Trust me if it involves chocolate the kids are all for it.  You’ll get hand painted Valentine’s made just for you.  I found these on Pinterest and they look too adorable to not make these. The closet I’ve bone are penguinfs,and humble bees.

A special thank you to Melissa got these cuties.

So now you are probably wondering how to make these adorable love bugs. It’s really easy and you can make them however you like

 treats, supply some spa quality homemade treatments, entrance cost 1 bottle of wine, and maybe a friend in the same boat.  Keep a count so you know what you need then simply have a relaxing, silly (depends onthe how much wine you drink) evening.  Checkout my go to recipes below and let the good times roll!  Please drink responsibly. 

Spa

Cut fresh cucumber slices to reduce puffiness and dark circles around your eyes.  Helps tighten skin, reduce wrinkles and leave you feeling refreshed.

1 terry or microfiber cloth(dollar tree is a great place to get party supplies without breaking the bank)

Salt scrub

Best done with Epsom salt add favorite scent bubble bath mix just enough to make paste.  Apply to face scrub well rinse clean.

Peel   

I love a good charcoal or boots pore strips to deeply clean, dead sea mud with refreshing cucumber  on our eyes.
Moisturizer 

Always finish with a good moisturiser.  As a gal pushing 40 I make mine high in retinol to help keep my youthful glow.

For this I believe simple ingredients still rule the day I make them like my grandma’s and mom’s recipe Deviled Eggs when I was teaching music,we had graduation every 10 weeks I’ve tried many and keep this one always,,…to me. 

Deviled eggs

12 whole eggs in larger pan of water

12 deviled eggs

1/4 c white vinegar

1/4 tsp salt 

1/4 tsp black pepper 

I large pan 3 /4 full of water add pinch of salt and 12 shell on raw eggs.  When full boil is achieved leave for 5-10 min.  Remove from heat and strain your eggs with all water add eggs back to pan fill with cold or ice water they had remain until cool enough to handle.  Gently break and peel off shells.  Cut egg in half on longest side.  Cut thoroughly to remove both halves in small bowl.  Do 11 more times.  To yolks add 1tbs miracle whip, 1 tsp mustard, 1/4 white vinegar, 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper.  Mix well. Put in small plastic bag pipe into each white.  Sprinkle with paprika. Serve chilled.
Turkey and Swiss Pinwheels

Start with flour burrito tortilla, spread Laughing Cow on one side add Turkey from deli, couple sticks red and yellow peppers, green leaf lettuce.  Roll tightly tucking ends.  Cut each roll into 1 1/2 inch pinwheel.  These are great and super easy to make you can even change up to just veggie, or smoked ham and portwine sharp cheddar.

In today’s world if you have the time a veggie tray always goes over well.  Carrots, Celery, grape tomatoes, maybe green pepper.  If I’m short on time I’ve been known to pick one up at the grocers. Places like Publix, and Wal-Mart 

For a hint of sweet Ritz crackers, spread with low fat cream cheese and an assortment of flavored jams and jellies.
