Valentine’s Week Round Up & a Video!

Valentine's Day Round Up | Cookies and Cups

So it’s been a fun week!!

If you missed some of action this week, let me catch you up to speed…last weekend I flew all the way down to Arkansas to visit Kristan.  I totally love this girl and I got the chance to see her new little baby nugget, Lucy!  We had so much fun together..we ate, we shopped, we baked…and we even filmed ourselves acting crazy stupid.  More on that in a minute.


Let’s talk about our baking first.  We decided to do Valentine’s treats..because of course we had to have a theme.  I know, it’s dumb.


So here’s a look back at all the Valentinsey treats we made…


First up we went with hearts.

Valentine's Day Round Up | Cookies and Cups She made Red Velvet Cake Batter Hearts and I made Valentine’s Krispie Treats.  Both adorable and both totally giftable.


Tuesday we brought you cake.

Valentine's Day Round Up | Cookies and Cups

In the form of Chocolate Cherry Push Pops and Rainbow {Ganache} Cake.  Also, rainbows are totally Valentinsey.  Don’t argue.


Finally we got our Strawberry Cake mix on and did it two different ways.  Neither being cake.

Valentine's Day Round Up | Cookies and Cups Kristan did Chocolate Covered Strawberry Brownies and I did Strawberry Gooey Butter Cookies.  You need to make both asap.



Let’s talk about the video.

We got a little slap happy on Saturday night and decided to act like imbeciles.  And also video it.  Because whenever you’re acting extra imbeciley you need to break out your video camera.

So I am sure you will watch the video and completely disown us.


* Character portrayals in this video are based solely on fictionalized versions of ourselves.  Under no circumstances do these characterizations depict any actual person or event.  All likenesses are purely coincidental.  No avocados were harmed during the filming of this video.


So anyway.  Please still be my friend even though I clearly have issues.  Oh and by the way, I really DO have a whole section for Rice Krispie Treats.  I mean, in case you were wondering.


Have a great weekend!
