Valentine's Day Printables for Your Guy!

I shared a few Valentine's Day printables on Monday at the end of my heart shaped treats round up post, but kept thinking about what I would want to print and give to my guy. I love the heart prints I made, but they were more for Valentine's Day decor. 

So back to Pic Monkey I headed to make a few more prints, I think these turned out a bit more guy friendly! I would love to hear which print you would share with your guy! 

My guy's beard isn't as long as this one, but this was my favorite beard graphic on Pic Monkey! 

Superman or Batman? 

I love both movies, but I'm more of a Batman girl...actually make that an X-Men girl, but Pic Monkey didn't have that symbol!  

Kiss, Kiss! Have fun and spice up your Valentine's Day with this print!! 

Would your guy like any of these prints? Maybe print them all and hide them around the house for him to find! 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Heart Shaped Treats for Your Valentine

Happy Monday! Are you planning fun activities for Valentine's Day yet? Maybe a special date night without the kids?  

The day of love tends to put a lot of pressure on the guys, but it really shouldn't be all about us ladies. They deserve just as much love on Valentine's Day as we do and we all know the way to a man's heart is through his stomach! So, I did a little searching on Pinterest and found a few fun heart-shaped treats for your Valentine that won't disappoint. 

1. Raspberry Moscato Cocktail 

So this drink may be a little more fruity than most guys like, but the idea here is to make the heart shaped ice cubes for his favorite cocktail. I think this recipe from Create Celebrate Explore looks amazing, and who knows your guy might like it too! 

2. Heart Shaped Cake

No need to rush to the store for a heart shaped baking pan the night before Valentine's Day! I love this trick and may even test it out using red velvet cake mix. It's a fun idea for Valentine's Day and for your sweetheart's birthday as well! 

3. Peek-a-boo Pound Cake

How adorable are these peek-a-boo hearts? I wonder is this would also work with banana bread, one of my guy's favorites! 

4. Marble Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies 

These marble red velvet cheesecake brownie hearts from The Novice Chef look more like art than food! Either way, I bet they taste just as amazing as they look. 

5. Heart Shaped Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes 

My husband is always making breakfast for me; pancakes, waffles, bacon and eggs...okay now I'm hungry for breakfast food! This Valentine's Day I really should return the favor and make him these heart shaped pancakes. You can use a mold like Gina from Skinnytaste did or use a squeeze bottle to squirt the pancake mix into a heart shape onto the pan.

Would any of these recipe ideas satisfy your guy on Valentine's Day? What are you planning for the big day of love?

Wait, don't leave just yet, I have a fun Valentine's Day print for you... 

Have you heard of PicMonkey? It's a Photo editor website where you can crop, write text, and create different effects on your images. But that's not all, you can also create your own fun print...

I made this one for us, but made a blank one for you to fill out with your own initials or whatever you'd like; your kids' names, the word love or forever n always, the choice is yours! 

Just right click, save as and then open it up in PicMonkey and select text. There are tons of font options too, I used ecuyer dax font.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Painting My Arrow: What Color?!

Help, I'm still stuck on what color to choose for my arrow! Last Friday I went to Home Depot and just stared at the spray paint colors...why are there so many shades of blue?! As I picked up can after can to compare the shades my husband gave me a look of "Just Pick a Color Already!"

Well, I didn't exactly pick a color yet!!! You see, I really wanted the Rust-Oleum® "Seaside", but unfortunately it was only available in a gloss finish. I'm not really going for a glossy look here. 

What's a girl to do? Why, she gets a back up color of coarse! If the seaside gloss finish doesn't work, I will spray over it in the Rust-Oleum® "Lagoon" satin finish. It's a bit darker than I want, but it was the only shade of "turquoise" that came in a satin finish. 

Although, a thought just popped in my head that I can sand down the glossy look of the seaside! But. will it still give me the pop of color I'm going for after I sand it down? I guess I'll have to test that theory out! 

Like my cousin would say, "It's an adventure!" Thanks for stopping by today, have a great day!
