Friday I'm in Love

It's Friday and Valentine's weekend (perfect for Friday I'm in Love)!  Thanks for stopping by to see what I'm digging this week.  Don't forget to pop over to the other gals' sites to see what they're loving, too: MishaKendraMary Beth, and Amanda.

ONE: Vintage Valentine

A few years ago, after my grandma passed away, I discovered this vintage Valentine that she had saved.  It was given to her by my grandpa in 1946, a year before they were married.  My grandma was certainly not a pack rat, so I think it's special that she kept this for the rest of her life.  The back contains a hand written note that begins, "Miss Smigiel Darling, this is the day I could really call you darling without you thinking I'm sick."  Haha!  My grandma once told me that no matter what kind of day either of them had, when she would get home, he'd always say something that would make her laugh.  I guess it was true even before they were Mr. & Mrs.

TWO: Vintage necklace

Paired with number one, I found this vintage necklace from my grandpa to my grandma.  It was tucked away in her jewelry drawer next to a velvet box containing her parents' wedding bands.  On the back, the necklace is engraved with 'GK TO VS 2-14-46'.  So special.


THREE: Sambazon Protein Shakes

I normally don't like protein shakes (I'm not into whey), but these Sambazon drinks are delicious!  They're made with soy milk and açaí  berries.  I've tried the chocolate-almond-coconut milk and the vanilla-açaí .  Both were quite tasty!  I picked mine up at EarthFare, but I'm pretty sure Whole Foods sells them, too. 

FOUR: Jim Gaffigan Obsessed

I love Jim Gaffigan!  He was hilarious on My Boys and his comedy specials always crack me up.  Among other things, his latest show, Obsessed, tackles shellfish, the kale craze, weddings, and Southern food.  I love that he doesn't just stand their dropping f*bombs and saying crude comments.  Check it out on iTunes.


Have a Happy Valentine's Day!  And Happy Birthday to Misha!
