Lookie what I got for Valentine’s Day!

Isn’t it lovely??? I am so happy! We have needed a new stove for many years…well, wanted more than needed but let’s don’t split hairs. It is great…baked perfectly. And is NOT electric. I do NOT prefer electric stoves. Anywho, it was delivered yesterday morning and Husband got it all hooked up and cooking by noon! I love that man. A LOT.

Even though Benjamin is still poorly, we went ahead with his Birthday/Valentine’s Dinner. A few days ago we took him on his birthday trip to Houston – zoo, museum, beach at Galveston.

Rode the ferry, saw the lighthouse…

At our house, you get to make the menu for your birthday dinner. Pizza and cheesecake…great choices!

Husband is the dough/breadmaker in the family so he took care of the pizza. It was excellent!

A couple hours after I ate it, I thought about the fact that it was on my lists of “DON’T EAT THIS”…tummy ache!! But not to complain…everyone else enjoyed it so much. A good time was had by all!

Hurray on the new stove! I prefer gas, too, but alas I only get to use electric. My parents had gas stoves most of my young life. Much better control of the heat. Your hubby is so sweet to cut out hearts from even pepperonis! Awwwwww.

What a lovely day! new appliances ARE fun! Love the beach, I’m just surrounded by SNOW!

Oops! I just realized I got the pepperoni cutter wrong. It was your daughter. Very cool!

Hmmm….I’ve got that stove and it doesn’t seem to work nearly as well here in my house. Perhaps you’re more June Cleaver than you realized?
