Do you have a tradition for Valentine’s Day? Evan and I started a tradition our first year of marriage and I love it. His favorite meal of all time is his grandmother’s spaghetti and meatballs. I was finally given the recipe after we were married! (not kidding!) For the past three years, I have made his grandmother’s homemade spaghetti and meatballs for us on Valentine’s. We use our fine china and crystal and sit in the dining room together. It’s fun and makes it a little more intimate than just sitting at the kitchen table or island with our everyday dishes! Sometimes we still make plans to go out to dinner too because we do love trying new restaurants and we use any opportunity to do so! This year we are going to New Orleans the day after Valentine’s Day for a wedding, so we did not make plans to go out to dinner.
We celebrated on Sunday this year because it is time-consuming to make and makes lots of leftovers! We did not want to leave all that food uneaten while we head down to New Orleans! I do not decorate for Valentine’s Day, but I did use red napkins for the occasion! Check out our Valentine’s “date”!

We didn’t end up getting a picture of the two of us unfortunately. We enjoyed a formal sit down meal together with wine, Caesar salad, spaghetti and meatballs, and garlic bread! It was yummy if I do say so myself! The only thing missing was tiramisu! I hope we continue to carry on this tradition in the years to come.

I have recently been accepted into the Fabletics affiliate program! YAY! My first outfit came in a couple of weeks ago and I have been dying to share it with you all. These days, every girl loves a good pair of workout leggings, even if you’re not working out! I have so many pairs of black leggings that I decided to step outside my box and pick something different. I chose dark olive leggings and a cute side knot sleeveless top.
The 411 on My Look
The leggings are seamless and very loose and comfortable around the waist. They have a cute ribbed/moto look to them that I love. For some unknown reason, I ordered a medium in the leggings when I should have ordered a small. I don’t like feeling cut off at the waist, so I guess that is why I ordered a medium? Although, they do not cut me off in the medium, they are a bit big. I have been tugging at them a little here and there. Had I chose the small, I think they would still be very comfortable in the waist. Note to anyone interested: stick to your true size!
I love the fabric and cut of this tie top. The underarms were a bit big on me, as you can see my bra on the side. Workout tops tend to do that sometimes though. I do not mind it showing, but some of you might mind. My personal preference of workout tops are loose-fitting, I do not like skin-tight workout tops. I ordered this one because of the loose look it has and it definitely lived up to my expectation.
