I know I said I’m not one to celebrate Valentine’s Day. After I made that post, I almost regretted it because I felt like I’d have to be Hard Hearted Helen today in order to stand true to what I said – and that’s so not me. All I was trying to express (albeit poorly) was that I don’t like when this day taken to the extreme. I try to find the happy medium between walking around throwing rose petals in my wake and wearing black while dubbing today “Singles Awareness Day” (Which I just realized spells sad. That’s sad.) It’s a fun day to do cute things with people you love, and I can dig that.
Our Valentine’s ended up being just that! A little bit of cuteness, with a whole lot of love
Cory and I usually send each other emails throughout the day, and today he sent me two “themed” ones that I enjoyed
A little comedy -
We love our Macs and iPhones I know these things from Facebook are so yesterday, but they always make me laugh.
And a little sweetness in the form of a Google Maps e-card -
Aw, man. I just love this guy. As an aside – I can’t believe our wedding is less than six months away! It sounds like a long time, but it’s going to be here before we know it. I get butterflies every time I think about it
Speaking of our wedding – Cory’s parents sent us a Valentine’s Day present off our registry
It didn’t come out in the picture very well, but they’re Mr. & Mrs. champagne flutes filled with treats! Can you guess which one is mine? Thank you so much, Joni and Mark!!
When Cory got home, I gave him two “tickets” to the Spy Museum in DC. I went years ago, and we’ve been wanting to go together, so I thought this was a good idea Nevermind the 5th grade-esque quality. It came from the heart.
Cory asked where I wanted to go to dinner and we came up with the decision to try the American Cafe.
I ordered Cajun chicken with veggies and mashed potatoes. You can imagine my disappointment when I quickly realized the “mashed potatoes” clearly came out of a box. Let down. The chicken wasn’t too bad though – it had a nice spicy kick to it.
Neither of us was totally satisfied with our meals, which only meant one thing. We had to go somewhere else for dessert. Enter: Red Velvet Cake (to-go!) from Eggspectation.
We devoured this baby real fast. I tried to get it out of the to-go box for a pretty picture, but that wasn’t going to happen without the cake crumbling/messing up the (cream cheese!) icing.
Well, friends, I’m stuffed and ready to relax for the rest of the night! I hope you’re doing the same!
Question for the evening – How did you spend your Valentine’s Day?
