Blue Monday

Good morning everyone! Blue Monday has rolled around once again and I'm going to show you something rather ordinary!

These are my every day dishes.

You may be wondering why I'm using Corelle when it's just the two of us. Well, the truth of the matter is, I don't have to baby this dinnerware and I happen to like the little blue heart pattern on them. Most of my dishes are red or pink and I find this blue is nice for a change. Besides, the pattern is rather cute and whimsical.
I also have several blue coffee mugs and a set of these blue glasses. I have four of the dark blue and four of the light blue coffee mugs. Anyone who has been following my blog knows that most of my decorating is in reds and pinks. So, you see, I do after all have some blue in my home!

Now I am going to share something extraordinary!
Exactly one month ago, it was my hubby's birthday and almost every year I bake him his favourite apple pie because he doesn't care for cake a whole lot. Me, I could eat cake every day of the week but anyway, we're talking about him here! This year instead of pie, I decided to make him a Trifle instead. As you can see from the photos, it has lots of pudding, sponge cake, whipped cream, and berries....blueberries! And of course, there were candles, at least one blue one!
It really was better than cake! I only make this about twice a year..... Hubby's birthday and Christmas.
