DIY Valentine's Gift Basket

My husband and I aren't into big Valentine's Day gifts. I'm allergic to flowers and they just die in a few days anyway.  (Heart shaped balloons, however, are awesome)
 But I still want to show him how much I love him
Sorry, not sorry.  So I made up this DIY Valentine's Day gift basket filled with treats he likes...Chips, Gatorade, Twizzlers and even wine
A not so quick Pinterest search led to me to MANY cute free printables

 Seriously I spent hours finding more and more I wanted to use
I saved them all and took them to Office Max to be printed in color on card stock.  Each sheet cost 60 cents so I didn't feel so bad printing a bunch of them
I made a few myself using Photoshop and a simple heart shape- like a bag of Pirates Booty with the message "I Like Your Booty"  I couldn't resist that pun :) 
Since Valentine's is only a few days away I'm making it easy for you- here are the links to all of the printables I found on Pinterest.  Start clicking and printing!

Love is In The Air

Valentine's Day is this week...you've remembered your sweetie. You've gotten candy for the kids but what about your "fur-babies"
According to adage.com Americans will spend $815 MILLION on their pets for Valentine's Day. Hey, we love them too!  

Of course, chocolate is out of the question for pets so after you pick up that new squeaky toy from the pet store how about giving a gift to the pets still looking for homes?!  You can send a SPCA Valentine in honor of your loved ones (2 legged or 4!) Click here to send your Valentine
And since I love my pets as much as I know you do I'm giving away a pair of tickets to the 2nd Annual World of Pets Expo all week long on the Top 7@7:47!
Seminars, Demonstrations, Shopping, Entertainment and more...there's something for all the pet lovers at the Expo.  Pets covered include dogs, cats, reptiles, ferrets and birds.  I had fun meeting this guy at last year's Expo. 

Pets on leashes are welcome to attend too!

If you don't have a Valentine this year
No worries- never be lonely again.  Adopt a shelter pet!
Jake is our Pet of the Week from the Chesapeake Humane Society
All cats 1 year and older are only $14 for the month of February! Click here for more info on Jake. 

If you love new music you're in luck cuz I've got new music all week on the Test Flight at 8:50pm from Eric Paslay, Jennifer Nettles, Parmalee and Natalie Sover and the Drive.
Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day Funfetti Pancakes

Valentine's Day is this Friday and the next best thing to waking up to this...
is waking up to pancakes!
I've tried the "Cake batter" style of pancakes before and they are way to sweet for me...and that's saying a lot coming from someone with a huge sweet tooth.  These are funfetti pancakes that still taste like pancakes. 

mmmm

Plus, the Greek yogurt makes them a little healthier, right?!  So wake up your sweetie or the kids Valentine's morning to these FUNfetti pancakes

Ingredients:

1 cup flour
2 Tablespoons Stevia (or sugar)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 container Dannon Light and Fit Vanilla Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup milk (I used Unsweetened Almond Milk but regular milk will do)
1/4 cup Egg beaters (or 1 egg)
1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
Sprinkles

Whisk together the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Mix the wet into the dry just until combine.  Let sit.  While it's sitting you can make the sauce.

For the sauce combine together:
1 container Greek Yogurt- I used the Dannon Light and Fit Vanilla Greek Yogurt
1 teaspoon Agave Nector or Honey
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons milk

Heat up your griddle and mix the sprinkles into the batter. Cook the pancakes 2-3 minutes on each side.  Top with Greek Yogurt sauce and sprinkles.
