Countdown to "Love Day": 4 days

Only 4 days left until that day where people go crazy over hearts, pink and red stuff, tacky chocolates, big balloons and 1800flowers.com. And where (some) women find themselves in tears at the end of the day because they didn't get a dozen red roses delivered to them at the office while all the other women got lavish gifts and/or telegrams. (Do telegrams even exist anymore? I don't even know, I'm just on my soapbox now!) Ok, I might sound a little bitter, but really, I'm not at all. I just don't care for Valentine's Day much. At least my husband and I agree on this. I asked him if we could forgo gifts this year and I think he's on board! (I can't resist giving some little trinkets to my adorable 2 year old, though)

You might ask, "Katie, if you don't like Valentine's Day, then why are you doing a ridiculous countdown with lots of cute ideas for that day you don't particularly care for?" Well, I have a good answer for you, my friendly blog reader… it gives me a great reason to 1) blog (finally… yay!), 2) get inspired and inspire others who like this "holiday", 3) bake cute and yummy things, 4) give cute little gifts, 5) tell others how much I love them, and 6) craft!

So, there you have it and here is some more "love" inspiration for you…
I decided today will have a theme of sorts, so how about some sweet treats to make you salivate:

How cute are these conversation heart cookies from the one and only Martha


Strawberry Shortcake Sushi… what?! Yes, please!


Fudgy Brownie Hearts with Fresh Raspberry Buttercream. Oh my. This just my be my treat of choice for "that day". For the little one in my life, of course.


This lady gets the award for "best execution" with royal icing. So, so cute and her blog is pretty awesome!


And if you are in the mood to make something cute, but don't feel like baking, these are a sure bet to win your loved ones over… (I'm going to have to explore this blog a little more when I'm not hungry!)


Are you hungry yet? "MWUAH-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!" You're welcome :)
