Whelp. It’s official. I’m a total slacker and didn’t get the VDAY meal posts, the sweets posts or the DIY post up this week. Major blogger fail. It’s my fault. I over- planned this week and didn’t leave myself any time to get that shizz done. SO.. this meant next week will be WEEK TWO of the Valentines Day “Love Week” here on CLA. Sorry to those V-Day haters.

Anyways, today is Friday so that means we are completely LISTED. Being Love Week it’s got a bit of a red theme…

— something I found that looked yummy that I plan on re-creating.
MAKE — something I want to make.
WANT — something I don’t “need” but want.
NEED — something that I NEED.
WOOF — something for Marley or Ziggy.


COOK/ Guys I’m super effing excited. THIS WEEKEND. I am going to attempt to my my first Creme Brûlée. GET AT ME. I’m so excited. Like $50 bottle of Grand Mariner excited. Okay, maybe that wasn’t exciting… that was more shocking. BUT I’M GONNA DO IT. Wish me luck…. Recipe will hit the blog next week if all works out… Photo from here.

MAKE/ I’m not really huge into making specific holiday decorations for the house other than for the major holidays. Why? Because you just have to take them down right away. And I’m lazy about that. But this is a CUTE idea that can work for Valentine’s Day or just in general decor. Guess I’m buying more letters… It’s not like my house doesn’t ALREADY have enough typography prints.

WANT/ I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been seeing these blocks of phrases EVERYWHERE lately and I cant help but laugh at a bunch of them. This one is extra cool though because it has a purpose too as a pen/ pencil holder. PERFECT.

NEED/ I’m a self-proclaimed Pen/ Pencil/ Marker/ Sharpie hoarder and always needs new places to stash my… stash… in bags/ purses/ backpacks. Lately I’m looking for a cute classic pencil case for my planner pens and highlighters. Love a good chevron.

WOOF/ I swear if I put red glasses on Marley she would look IDENTICAL to this print. Thus it’s a must-have, right?
