15 Years To The Day

Was a happy V-Day around here! Here are the flowers to prove it. We kinda sorta got engaged on Valentine's Day Weekend 15 years ago. Kinda Sorta? I know. We did it all wonky. One of his college roommates had gone to all this extreme, and hired a horse and carriage and had the ring all ready, and a date at the ballet.. we watched him get ready and then he left all nervous...

After he left we hung out on the couch, (no we did NOT make out....much). And the conversation led around to..'Should we do this thing?' My answer? "Yeah, I'm thinking in September.. you?" —the rest of that story to be continued, k?

What did we do for the big Valentine's Night? Oh yeah, crazy night.. we went to a church sponsored party? Huh? What? For Valentine's? I know, but it turned out to be a great time and sheesh, free babysitting, you can't beat that!

Salsa Roll-Ups.
We made them with lots and lots of love of course!


  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chiles
  • 3 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 12 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 cup salsa or picante sauce


Directions for tortilla roll-ups.
In a medium bowl combine cream cheese, sour cream, chilies, onion, red bell pepper, and Cheddar cheese. Mix thoroughly. Spread onto tortillas and roll up. Cover tightly and chill for 2 hours or overnight. When ready to serve, cut each roll into 1/2-inch slices. Serve with salsa or picante sauce. Makes about 32 pieces of tortilla roll-ups.

Hope your Valentine's Day was a good as mine?!

Coming over from Blog Stalker and wanted to say that your engagement story is sort of like ours. We got engaged on a car ride home from shopping at Costco.

Very romantic, indeed!

The funny thing is--I'm not disappointed at all. The whole "down on one knee" thing just didn't appeal to me. Granted, I never thought it would be in the car, but you get the idea. : )
