2 Chocolate Almond Date Bites - Yes, I want cake

Hey, it’s the week for pink and red and sprinkles and balloons and chocolate and hearts!

Little Sticky Fingers (below) is super excited. She is ALL THINGS girl. Jewelry, chapstick, shoes, hats, bags, flowers, butterflies, glitter, sprinkles…she’s in.

(ps. remember when I was pregnant and thought she was a boy, HAH!)IMG_3068

She is the best girl I know.

Therefore, I will allow her to steal handfuls of chocolate almond date bites right out of the food processor (it was unplugged!) and then stick her hand in every single photo I try to take and get chocolate fingerprints all over everything we own. Just for this week.
