Ice Cream Floats

Our Valentine's Day was a great success...

I have no idea how Bloggers post their holiday pictures before the actual holiday...
Do they stage the holiday a month before??? Post last year's pictures??
Tell me...how do you all do it??

I'm lucky to get pictures loaded on the computer, edited and in a post 2 days after the holiday!

I wanted to share these ice cream floats that we made because I think that they would be 
WONDERFUL for St. Patrick's Day with just a little bit 'o tweaking!

I waited until....oh, Valentine's DAY to actually prepare.......it's been a busy month!
As I was driving to the Goodwill, I was just asking God..."Could there please be something
that resembles ice cream float cups at the Goodwill??"
I had seen THIS idea and wanted to try it!

Now there was a reason that I wanted to make this day "extra special!"  We had
our dear friends and neighbors with us...well, 2 of their kids.
The rest of the family spent the night at the hospital...again....the 2nd time in a week...
the kids were worried about little sister and I wanted to make the keep their minds
off of missing Mom and Dad...so I prayed!

And God answered my prayer!!

There were 10 ice cream float cups on the top shelf at the Goodwill!!!
I really felt that was a blessing from God that day!

We decorated our floats with pink....but I can also see green shamrocks
green sherbetGinger Ale and green sprinkles working for St. Patrick's Day!!

We added the sherbet, poured Cranberry Ginger Ale over them, added
whipped cream and Valentine heart sprinkles....

The best part.......the smiles!

Hope you all had a "love"ly day, too!
