Valentine's Day is approaching FAST! Today I have gathered a list of items, that may or may not be on my list this year! If you are looking for a gift, and have no ideas, well let me help you out!
My first item is about Warmth! With the frigid temperatures lately, this was on the top of my list! This great Canada Goose Winter Jacket has all the feels! And since they offer all kinds of styles, you can find just the right one for your taste here www.canadagoose.com/ca/en/shop/women/
Next, you can't go wrong with Sparkles!! I'm loving these Morganite studs from Peoples Jewelers!! And guess what..... they are on sale! www.peoplesjewellers.com/50mm-morganite-stud-earrings-10k-rose-gold/p/V-19563576
I have a scarf on my list this year as well. Are you starting to see the theme of Warmth!! Not just any scarf, but this gorgeous Louis Vuitton Beyond Monogram Shawl! LOVE LOVE it!! This silk-wool blend comes over sized and in many different colors!
If you are like me, and have like a zillion perks cards, this next item is one for you! The Yves Saint Laurent Card holder. I really am into this Monogram Card Case in embossed leather! It is 100% calf skin leather (which I'm not sure I want one know, after reading this) and is made in Italy! Come to think about it, I'm gonna take a look at Matt and Nat for one now..... be right back......
There we go, much better!! This is their slim wallet. This is cruelty free, and not made with animal based materials! Plus they are Canadian Based!! Starting out in Montreal!! Yep, changed my mind to this one! Hey, a girl has the right to change her mind right??
Next up is some UGG slippers.... again with the warmth! But alas... yet again made with Sheep Skin.... Grrr... Can't a girl get some warmth without the cruelty. But if you're OK with that, then these babies will keep you warm through out the rest of the winter!
I'm hoping for a nice night out as well. I highly recommend the Wildstone Grill here in St. Marys, Ontario! Their food is wonderful and the atmosphere is great! You can find their menu and address here wildstone.ca/
Back with the jewels! Seriously, you can't go wrong with Sparkle! I am loving this heart necklace and earring set from Stella and Dot. But if they aren't your cup of tea, then for sure you will be able to find something from this company! They offer all kinds of styles! You can shop here www.stelladot.com/sites/cherylwhatley
Do you like flowers on Valentine's Day? I'm really not one for flowers, and I not a fan of roses either, but these just scream my name! These Luxe Bloom Infinity Violets are the real deal! They come preboxed and are said to last a year or more!! Yay!! I would love to have these delivered to my door!
And last, but not least, just to make my life a little bit easier, I'm looking at this Roomba! You can purchase the iRobot Roomba at Canadian Tire here: www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/irobot-roomba-652-vacuuming-robot-0436889p.0436889.html?gclid=CjwKCAiAs8XiBRAGEiwAFyQ-esjFPWkXobg64yXrI_rsSoeqxgPrpnIEaNivHm-5JfhWkSNvw9-atBoCIuMQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds#store=91
The whole idea of not having to get out the vacuum and spend my time doing this stupid chore is awesome, but with a dog and 3 cats, just how much hair will it pick up? But the thought of not having to vacuum out weighs the reality of the quality of the performance of the machine, let's me add it to my list!
Of course, you know, I probably won't get any of these items, that are on my list, but it helps to put the ideas out there..... please universe (or hubby)! What are some things on your list for Valentine's Day? Do you get gifts or give them?
Until Next time, Happy Valentine's Day

Before I started WW, I made this recipe for my family and it was a great hit! I haven't made it since joining Weight Watchers, so I can't begin to tell you how many points are in one, but if I ever make it again, I will let you know. I just call this Chicken Goodness, and I have been known to make it with Pork Chops as well. Here is what I did.....
First start off with your choice of Chicken or Pork Chops. On this particular day, I used Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, but you could use either. I then sprayed the tin foil with Pam, to avoid the end result from sticking to the cookie sheet.
I then placed the chicken evenly on the sheet and grabbed the rest of the ingredients out of the fridge! I used only three ingredients besides the meat. Italian Style Bread Crumbs, Ranch Dressing and Parmesan Cheese.
I covered the top of the chicken breasts with a light layer of Ranch dressing using a spoon. You could do thick, if you want, it all depends on your preference of Ranch Taste. I keep it light as my son is very picky and would never eat it if it tasted too "Ranchy".
Using a spoon, I smoothed it out on top like this.
Next, I coated the top of the Ranch dressing with the Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs.
Next I sprinkled the Parmesan Cheese on top of the bread crumbs. I then placed them in the oven and cooked them for 30 minutes at 350, flipping over half way through the cooking time and following the same steps as above!
And Voila!! Done! It may not look like much but it is very yummy!! You should try it!
Let me know if you try it!
Until next time
