Jeff & I went to the VFW for dinner; they were having a special dinner, including shrimp, lobster, & steak. If you know me well enough, you know that I eat none of those things. I had chicken strips. :-)

Sunday was our turn to bring treats for Fellowship after church. I decided I wanted to really bring it, so I went all out. I made mini-cupcakes (Tina got me the tin for Christmas - thank you!), chocolate covered pretzels, a few chocolate dipped marshmallows, and brought carrots and chocolate covered cherries. This was our table last Saturday during the madness:
I used the Wilton cake decorating kit that we have and filled two plastic piping bags with icing: first white, then light pink, then a darker color (one had darker pink and the other had a purple). The results:

There's a pretty 3-tier silver server at church that I have never seen used in the last 4+ years. So I had Jeff pull it down, I cleaned it up, and stocked the trays.
I had pinned this Chocolate Covered Pretzel idea to my "Other Holidays" Pinterest board a while ago. I was excited to use this pinspiration while making treats...
|uh, flash, really, the pretzels were not actually that color...|

I hope you were able to spend Valentine's Day with someone you love!
