Heart Shaped Blondies

Heart Shaped Blondies

I hope everyone’s day is filled with love and lots of sweet treats:)

I kidnapped Joshua yesterday!! He had no idea I have been planning a surprise! It was so fun being sneaky!! When he got home from work yesterday I had his favorite cookies and a card sitting on the table. In the card, I asked him if he was ready for a weekend adventure, luckily he said yes! I had all of our bags packed and we took off. He didn’t know where we were going:)

First, we drove up to Midway, Utah. It is a gorgeous place and someday we hope to build a home there. So we looked around and then had lunch at a tasty Mexican restaurant. Then we drove to the Dewey’s cabin, the grand surprise!! It is gorgeous, especially with all of the snow!

Lincoln was my secret spy…he helped me get the cabin and set everything up. Josh was so excited when we got here. We LOVE the cabin. We came here right after we were married. Today is our 8th month anniversary! I am lucky to have such a wonderful and handsome husband!! He brings my life much happiness!

So this weekend we are just relaxing…and of course I brought up tasty food! That is a must!! A big thanks to the Dewey’s and Gram for the perfect weekend away!

Have a great weekend everyone! We don’t have work on Monday so we are really going to relax!!

I made these heart treats the other night to take to our neighbors. They were really easy! Just make your favorite blondie or cookie bar and cut them into heart shapes. I also threw in Valentine M&M’s for color!!

    I need a smaller heart shaped cutter, the only one I have is pretty huge.
    Love Heber/Midway. Our bishop from here in Kansas just moved there. The little stink–now my husband is bishop! Sigh!
