Those pizzas are adorable!

Our tradition is cheap + greasy chinese take out (maybe the only time all year that I get it!) and funny TV. No gifts, no fanciness.

Marilyn said...

Very cute. I'll have to try those with our favorite toppings - pineapple and jalapeno. :-)

Those pizzas look delish. The world just wouldn't be complete without pizza.

Today I am loving my friends who pour on a little extra love for their single friend! They are just the best!

My husband, the furry four legged ones in the household, angel food cake and a cozy couch! Happy Valentine's Day!

Laura said...

Love the heart-shapes Summer :) Looks like some good pizza!

I made chicken and broccoli alfredo for the boy and I (we used to eat it all the time when I visited him at college) and accidentally bought each other the same valentines gift (/the Social Network on dvd)...and then we watched Scott Pilgrim! Happy days :)

I'm loving my Brad, our God, amazing steak fajitas, good books, and all the moments at home cuddling we have together.

Kimberlee said...

I'm smitten with chocolate covered strawberries, togetherness, my new pillows, the pizza you made and with love. I'm hopelessly in love with love.

Nora said...

Thank you SO much for the tip on getting Amazon Prime for free as a student. I am way too happy to be able to take advantage of that. :)

Just recently found your blog and it's quickly becoming one of my favorites!

Franca said...

Can you please post the actual recipe to the valentines pizza you talk about? The link doesn't take you directly to the recipe and it's difficult to find it. Thanks so much.
