XoXo Mini Note!

I usually don't like refrigerator magnets because I prefer a clean and sleek look, but this magnetic mini note was definitely an exception to the rule! I picked it up at my local Barnes and Noble. I can't find it on their website, but I did find it from the maker's company, Knock Knock, here!

I thought it would be a sweet way to leave little notes for each other. We've already used it several times. I came home to this one today! 

It's a sweet way to let the other person know you are thinking of them! :) It always catches me off guard and leaves a smile on my face! I apologize for the evening lightning in this photo ;)

This cute little magnetic mini note is also perfect because one of my husband's love languages is 'words of affirmation.' If you're in a relationship you and your spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend should take the test here! It was definitely a turning point in our marriage and I highly suggest it! My main love language is gifts… I bet you didn't see that coming! ;)

Back to the subject! :) What do you all think? I love it this because it's so simple, yet sweet at the same time! What are other ways that you all do to let your boo thing know that you are thinking of them?

A Quick, Easy and Pretty Summer Treat!

My husband had been working outside on the yard all day and he came in and I offered him some Breyers strawberry cheesecake gelato. It's almost impossible for me to put a scoop of ice cream into a bowl without adding a little something special; even it's putting the ice cream in a nice bowl and presenting it with a pretty napkin. haha I love details!

I went into the kitchen and I remembered that we picked up lemon wafer rolls at HomeGoods the night before. (LOVE HomeGoods!!)

Don't you think it looks like a brilliant idea!

I went to my buffet full of cute glassware and plasticware and got these out!

I, of course, picked the turquoise one out because it's my favorite color.

Two scoops and two lemon wafer rolls….

Drum roll… Voila! A very fun and extremely delicious (yes, I had a few bites!) dessert served in seconds!! A quick, pretty easy dessert that tastes like summertime with zero prep?! Count me in! 

My husband loved it so much he asked for a second round! :)

I've also spotted different flavors of wafer rolls at Target and Harris Teeter. I've bought hazelnut and dark chocolate before. You could also use vanilla bean ice cream or gelato with dark chocolate hazelnut wafers. Yum! The ideas are endless! Have fun with it!!

The adorable cups came from Oh Joy's line from Target located here
