Giveaway Winn Dixie Valentine Day Celebration #Romance #Flowers #Balloons #Desserts #Dinner #Love

This month is going so fast and the winter is just making it complicated with all the snow and plowing that needs to be done. Will we be in the romantic mood to go out and have fun, really? Is there an alternative? Just looking at the snow piling up on the side, I am tired and decided why not make that romantic  moment in the warmth of our home. I can go to my favorite store, Winn Dixie that one stop shopping center and buy my groceries and create that surprise Valentine Day Celebration.

 I decided to take advantage of their suggestions of Lobster and Steak at the Surf and Turf Central @WinnDixie. There are so many options to make with these nice products. OH, it warms my heart just thinking of all the ideas running through my mind. I know there are several Winn Dixie in the area but let me check the closest location here while avoiding all the road blocks. With my list made, Winn Dixie card and keys, I head out to Winn Dixie to get my grocery to make my Romantic Dinner.

Wow, the store is all beautifully done for Valentine's Day Festivities, this is so exciting and the employees are all smiling as usual and courteous as well. This is one of the main reason I enjoy going to Winn Dixie, always so pleasant!

This is such a warm welcome into the store and with such a colorful display, it sure gets you into the Love/Sweetheart mood. Nearby you can find an array of flowers which you can decorate with balloons or whatever is your choice. It is super with all the ideas at Winn Dixie.

Here we go off to the Bakery to see the selection of pastries and other desserts you can purchase. What are you thinking of? Well, there are a selection of cakes, pies and the cookies that you select you can write what you want on it, isn't that awesome?

Finally, we go have a look at the Surf and Turf Center to get our choice of Lobster and Steak, wow, I am getting all excited and feeling the love inside. Isn't that nice to share with your love ones or with your friends, it is a great occasion to let your friends know how much they are loved and appreciated, let not  make it be too late, enjoy the love and friendship!


 Have fun be wise! Oh did you see this, the Steak is shaped like a heart, Oh how awesome are these people in the Surf and Turf Center. Thanks for being so thoughtful  and creative!

Awesome, we have all we need, so let's get home and prepare for that special Valentine Day Dinner!
Today, we will make the Broil Steak and Lobster with Mashed Potatoes and Spinach Salad.
