100 down, and many more to go........

We had a really good weekend.....
I made heart pancakes for the boys on Saturday morning...

We exchanged gifts, I got beautiful flowers from David and a red rose from each of the boys.

The boys got new V-day Webkins and some candy and a new I-penguin.We got David a new Wii game he has been wanting.
We took the boys out for lunch to Olive Garden, and then picked them up heard shaped pizzas for dinner and I made them a big heart shaped chocolate chip cookie. They had a sleepover and two sitters(best friends from school) we left the boys for a night of fun, and headed over to our friends Teresa & Gene's for dinner. We met them 12 years ago, while eating dinner out on Valentine's Day. We were seated next to each other in a tiny bistro and became instant friends...We have since attended each others weddings, and spent every Valentine's Day together since. Now they are pregnant with their first babies, TWINS! A boy & girl due in about 4 weeks. We are so excited for them and cannot wait meet them!
Teresa made an incredible beef tenderloin with a gorgonzola sauce, she also made a yummy tomato red onion salad. I made twice-baked potatoes and a few appetizers. I also made these for dessert! They were delicious!
We had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

This is my 100th post! I wanted to do something different, which is why I had been posting less this week, but I could not decide what to do...so instead I changed my look and I picked the song "100 years"......Hope you like it :)
To help me "celebrate" I would love to hear from some of my "silent followers", you can leave a message or click on the right and become an "official follower".
Thanks so much :)

Congrats on 100 posts! LOVE your new blog look and photo of the boys...adorable! Sounds like a great Vday, how nice to get flowers. :) I got huge nightgowns to wear to the hospital. :) You're such a cute mom making the boys heart shaped pancakes, heart shaped pizzas, and heart shaped cookies! How lucky are they! I ALWAYS remember you meeting Teresa and Gene at Balabans (sad it's closed :() I always thought that was so like you to make friends while out for dinner, you're so outgoing and friendly and willing to chat with anyone! I can't believe it's been 12 years and you all still celebrate together...what a nice tradition. Your dinner sounds wonderful and post pics of those twins when they arrive! Have a good week!
