I give you my Heart!

I knit this heart for Jim. He's working today so I tucked it and a card into his overnight bag! He was surprised and a little confused, but I think he liked it.
This week has been filled with baking. Monday we made molasses cookies. Jamie is studying the Revolutionary War. When talking about the sugar tax, I realized that J had no idea what molasses was...only one thing to do about that! Tuesday I test baked Strawberry Cupcakes to see if they would make a good birthday cake for my Grandma. Then on Friday, I made Thin Mints and
Samoas was my home stretch, baking Grandma's cake (started it at 7:30 am and was finished decorating it by 11:30....birthday party started at noon so we had to hustle).
I also squeezed in some knitting, embroidering, and crocheting: knit heart for Jim with embroidered coronary arteries and some crochet dish clothes and scrubbies for Grandma.
Tomorrow the boys will be staying at Jim's that we can get some much needed rest! Can't wait! We aren't planning on doing anything spectacular, just getting a movie and hopefully making a nice meal with a good wine!
Hope you have a fantastic Valentine's Day with your Love!

I just found your blog through the comment you left on mine. I love the title. I would really like the recipe for the Samoa Bars but when I click on the link, it doesn't go anywhere. Can you email me the recipe?
