valentine's

Since tomorrow is the big day, I thought I would share my top two recommendations for romance.

The first is something Nathan and I stumbled upon nearly four years ago, but since that fortuitous discovery, we have made it a tried and true tradition. Love Potion Number 31 is the hands down best ice cream I've ever had in my life, and it is only in Baskin Robbins stores during January and February.


As you can tell from the picture, it is a vanilla raspberry blend with a raspberry gel swirl and dark chocolate hearts with raspberry filling. In my opinion, nothing can touch it, which is why we buy it by the quart when it is available. I have never come across a more romantic treat, so if you get a chance to try it out tomorrow, you won't be disappointed.

My other pick for romance is the movie Fireproof. To be honest, Nathan and I went to see this in the theatre with low expectations, but it turned out to be well worth the watch. Definitely a good pick for a little recharge for your marriage, and what better time for that than tomorrow?


If you haven't heard anything about the movie, it's an amazing story, so check out the website to hear how one church in GA has come together to produce these movies.

Happy Valentines!

Happy Valentines Day Angie and Nathan. I bought this movie two weeks ago and really didn't realize what a beautiful story was about to unfold. Corky watched it with me. He's a action and cowboy kind of guy and he was spellbound by the movie. So out of character for him but he has told others about it.:) I hope your day is a wonderful one girl!!

Love and Hugs, Laurie
PS. I have been posting more pictures of the grandkiddos on my blog now that I have the hang of it
and hope you check them out when you have time.

I just wanted to log in and thank you for recommending the ice-cream! I guess I've never been to Baskin Robbins during the months when they carry this flavour... I had my husband pick it up and oh my goodness, it is delicious! I plan to watch the movie soon too, with my husband. Thanks for looking out for us,

I also loved the movie Angie. I have been a little out of touch and was checking in on you and your sweet girls. I hope you and Nathan had a wonderful Valentine's day. Miss you.
With love,
Kim

1. make sure you purchase enough ice cream (and keep enough on-hand), so that I can try it out next time I come to Memphis. I realize this probably won't happen.

2. thanks for the Fireproof recommendation. I totally forgot it was available on DVD now and have been needing another movie from Netflix!
