It's a date! (Valentine's Day recap)

During elementary and high school I had a Valentine's party almost every year. My mom and I would go to Pic n Save (now Big Lots) right after Christmas and stock up on fun Vday party favors and decorating supplies. Then after school during Vday week I would have my best friends come over for a Valentine's decorating party. So it was appropriate that I would spend this Valentine's Day with M, who attended those parties in the past.

My sister (and roommate) is in Vegas for the weekend and M's roommate K is in Florida (hope you had a good trip!) so M and I decided to have a sleepover. We went to see He's Just Not That Into You. Then we came back to my apartment and made my FAVORITE Barefoot Contessa pasta. It is even pink!

After dinner M made these delicious molten chocolate cakes for us.






Had to use the heart oven mitts of course!


Right out of the oven:


PBKids plates we used:


And Target placemats:


Finished Product (thanks M!)


We watched the Wedding Planner, gossiped about our high school (Sailor Spirit Squad??), and watched reruns of Friends and Sex and the City.
