Valentine’s Day Special: Story of The Boy & Three Hot, Little Ideas

Good afternoon ladies, and Happy Valentine’s Day to you all! This morning I decided to make a special breakfast for The Boy inspired by this recipe I found on Pinterest, and also my coworker’s story of her girlfriend surprising her with breakfast in bed.


Yes, heart shaped “Eggs in a Basket.” Well, due to my lack of any art skills whatsoever, my variation definitely didn’t come out as pretty to say the least. My heart cut-out was not nearly big enough, so the egg kind of just exploded over the toast. Therefore, there will be no pictures of Rachel’s remake on my blog today. The Boy didn’t care though, and it still came out super delicious. We drizzled ours in some salt, pepper and hot sauce to spice things up bit!

We enjoyed our heart eggs with kiwi & sliced apple wedges served with nutella, and the leftover heart cut-outs (from the inside of the toast) spread with peanut butter. I also made The Boy some oatmeal with flaxseed, blueberries, raw maple syrup, cinnamon and peanut butter since his appetite’s a little bigger than mine. And you bet I brewed a pot of coffee (Creme Brulee flavor today), which we topped off with some organic almond milk and a little bit of pure vanilla that The Boy had bought for me on his vacation.

Speaking of The Boy, since today is Valentine’s Day ‘n’ all I decided it’s finally time to “reveal” him. After all, we have been dating for a year and three months now, so I suppose it’s time.

His name is Jason, and I kinda, sorta like him a lot.

He’s a 27-year-old entrepreneur who enjoys health and cooking almost as much as I do.

Our last names both end in “ski,” we’re both Polish and on our first date we  had some major chemistry.

Speaking of our first date, while I don’t tell many people this (since I get embarrassed), we actually met online. Yup, we can thank for our “success story.” I joined out on a whim November 2010 after I got fed up being single (my whole life) and meeting creepy guys at bars. I was on Match for a week, he was on it for a year. The rest is history.

I have to admit I was skeptical of “online dating” at first, but really it’s been one of the best things that ever happened to me. Hey, can’t knock it ’til ya try it. So for all you single ladies out there; here’s a special treat: a free 3 day trial with all the perks including email access. [Disclosure: I will get a small commission if you do end up signing up, but either way three days for free is totally fun if you’re up for it.]

Ok, ‘nough about that. Now onto three special little treats anyone can enjoy this Valentine’s Day…

1. EAT IT – – Not Your Sugar Mamas‘ “Be Sexy” Chocolate


These local ladies (based in Martha’s Vineyard) whip up real, raw, organic chocolate that’s actually good for you. I tried it for the first time the other day, and have to say my favorite was the “Be Sexy,” a powerful mix of cacao, coconut butter, agave, spirulina, maca, vanilla and sea salt with an added boost of “love potion” (that includes rose hips and extra maca) for an aphrodisiac effect. Watch out ladies and gents; this chocolate works wonders for your love life! Find out more about these chocolate-crafting gals here.

2. DO IT – – Get a massage! Taken? Take your sweetie to the local spa for a couple’s massage to experience a powerful bonding effect. You’ll both feel relaxed, centered and closer by the end of the massage. Single this Valentine’s Day? Buy yourself a massage for an amazing detoxification & rejuvenating experience for your body. You’ll feel high on life and ready to embrace the day!


3. EMBRACE IT – Love yourself a little extra today. Embrace your body (curves and all), write in a journal, and know that it’s ‘OK’ to treat yourself. A little extra  chocolate isn’t going to kill ya, and the gym will always be there tomorrow. Take this day for YOU.

P.S. Feel free to check out this post from yesterday on what love means to you. I’d love to hear your views!

Much Love,

    Aww you and Jason are so cute! I love that pic of you two! I also love how you met – I agree, don’t knock it! My sister met her bf there and they are seriously so perfect for eachother and would never ever have met otherwise. And Scott’s best friend is now married to the girl he met on Match a couple years ago. It really does happen!! 🙂 PS your breakfast sounds AMAZING!!

  3. Whitney @LiveRunLoveYoga Says:

    So cute! I know quite a few people who have met on Match and are happily married now! Have a Happy Valentine’s day!

  4. Rachel @Healthy_Chicks Says:

    @Jess Thanks Jess, that was from our anniversary hehe! It’s funny how the good ol’ Match works out sometimes. I used to judge it and then it worked for me, so I definitely can’t complain! I think of it more like a segway to meet someone for the first time, rather than “online dating.” I mean, it eventually leads to a real, in-person date after all! haha

  5. Rachel @Healthy_Chicks Says:

    @Whitney Yup, I’ve heard it happen too…I don’t know why I’m always so embarrassed to tell people that’s how we met. (I guess ’cause it’s not as traditional) Happy Valentine’s Day to you too, have a lovely, inspiring day 🙂

  6. jobo Says:

    Aww! Love this! You two make a dashing couple 😉 And don’t be embarrassed about meeting that way whatsoever! I met M on match and it was almost similar, but reversed: I was on for a year on and off, M was on for like, two days, and I emailed him, and the rest is history 😉 I joke that he lucked out in that one, didn’t have to ‘kiss as many frogs’ as I did! You two are adorable, and breakfast looks delish!

  7. Rachel @Healthy_Chicks Says:

    @jobo LOVE that that’s how you met M too! Looks like the internet worked out for the two of us just perfectly. Thanks for your sweet comments; we all have to meet soon enough. Have an amazing evening!

  8. Clair Says:

    Yayy! I was wondering when he’d show up around here. 😉

    Very cute story. I am a huge advocate of online dating. It’s a lot harder to meet people in today’s world, and I figure, if that’s what you want, go get it!

  9. Kristi M. Says:

    I met my boyfriend on Match too! I think online dating gets a bad rap, but it was a good way for me to pick and choose men I wanted to talk to and meet rather than meet creepers at the bar. Best wishes!

  10. Rachel @Healthy_Chicks Says:

    @Clair Ya it’s about time. I think I’ve only ever posted one other picture of him on here, and we had sunglasses on hehe ; )

  11. Rachel @Healthy_Chicks Says:

    @Kristi M It seems like SO many people do it nowadays. Times have changed and it’s not as “strange” as some may think. I love your way of looking at it.
