Now That’s a Happy Valentine’s Day…

My husband and I are not really Valentine’s Day folks.  We did the whole deal the first year we were together because well… we’d only been dating briefly.  But for the last few years, we’ve been trying to go low-key – we went out for pizza one year, I got home so late we went nowhere another year, and last year we started a new tradition of staying home and cooking a delicious meal inspired by Rachel Ray’s “Mood for Romance” episode:

Grilled Strip Steak, Broiled Lobster Tail, Roasted Asparagus, and the pièce de résistance:  Bacon Horseradish Mashed Potatoes  (You gotta try these.)

All while watching the Slam Dunk Contest.  We plan to do the same thing this year – just while watching the All Star Game.

But, if we were cheesy “Believe in Valentine’s Day” kind of folks, my husband would be buying me these babies:

The YSL Tribtoo Eelskin Slingbacks.  At for a mere $895 – nearly 2/3 our mortgage but love ain’t free now is it????  Ah, love…

Those shoes are a bargain at twice the price. Will be trying the mashed potatoes, though I do not think they are on the diet 🙂
