Falentine's Weekend

My Valentine and I decided to get a jump on Valentine's Day and do a little celebrating this past weekend.  I call it Falentine's Day (you know I like to make up words).

The scones we made last year turned out so well that we decided to make them again.  B looked mad in the first picture I took so I told him to look excited.  This is what I got....
The beer was to help with the baking...not an actual ingredient.  We also had our friend, pregnant (with an orange baby) Russian measuring cup doll to assist us with our ingredients. 
I used the scones in the Falentine's Day brunch I prepared for us on Sunday (featuring fruit/granola parfaits).  The bacon and potatoes (from the breakfast buffet at Harris Teeter) were a late add.
"Oh hey guys, it just me, Hobie.  I would really like to take some of that bacon off your hands.  Can you see me here?  I'm waiting patiently but I will leap up on the coffee table if necessary."
"Mmmm, these also smell nice.  What's that?  Orange and cranberry?  But really, just give me some of the bacon."
It was a lovely Sunday Morning brunch.  B also took me out for a nice Falentine Dinner on Saturday on what turned out to be the coldest night of winter so far.  Good times. 

Later this week I will unveil the amazing Valentine's Day card I made B while watching How I Met Your Mother last night.

Are you doing anything for Valentine's Day?
Or do you hate Valentine's Day and think it's a stupid fake holiday made up by greeting card companies?

Either way, Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!!
