LEGO Valentines From My Kids

Posted February 15, 2015 By dealinanddishin

TweetWe don’t go overboard for Valentine’s Day at all around here. I would smack the Hubs if he spent $50 on flowers and candy. I’m happy with a $5 or $10 bouquet on a crappy week than something extravagant like that. He said he and the kids were working on something, and I wasn’t allowed […]

TweetWe had this great BBQ place called Shyler’s. I loved their BBQ, but even more was the onion straw appetizers they had. It was a big basket of super thin sliced, lightly battered, salty onions.
