It was a nice family Valentines Day this year in Virginia Beach. Momma and papa were in town to bring Chloe back from her vet appointment in N.C. and for my wood floors to be delivered. Hooo-rah!
|happy valentines day!|
As evidenced below, Chloe was a pretty big fan of her first Valentine’s Day. Her Opa and Gigi got her an awesome chew toy thats called a “Dog Saver.” It’s a gummy ring (like a life saver) that has little treat compartments for a dog to try to remove with her teeth.
|not just a pretty bed; heaven.|
As promised… photos from the Virginia is for Lovers 14k this past Saturday. So fun.

|racing twins. hearts all around.|
And, on the subject of love, I was pretty psyched to find these baby packets of the “special pb” from Peanut Butter & Co. I’ve been dying to try. I haven’t wanted to get a tub of the stuff, so I bought these with the intention of trying ’em out. Reviews to come!
The Thin Mint Protein Green Monster Shake
Some of you also pointed out I so rudely forgot to mention what I put in my thin mint green monster protein shake. I adapted it from Julie‘s recipe, and into the blender went:
1.5 scoops Chocolate Truffle Whey Protein Isolate
1 cup skim milk
6 ice cubes
1 tsp. Bob’s Red Mill xanthan gum for thickness
peppermint extract, to taste (I’ve had a few mishaps with this one.. use a TEENSY bit. like 1/8 tsp)
2 large handfuls spinach
a big fat squirt of Smucker’s Fat Free Sundae Syrup
P.P.S. For all you Bachelor fans out there… you MUST read this girl’s hysterical Bachelor recap. She’s a friend of my friend, and her laugh-out-loud comments always have me rolling!
