Valentines Day is about the only cool part of February. Everyone was doing something cool it seemed like. My sister Collette and her hubby have been married for about a year now and her hubs threw together a fancy fondue dinner. (They are so cute together it disgusts me). And my mom and dad packed up their bags and went to Cabo for the weekend. Yeah. I know. Even in our little town of Rexburg I knew of friends running wild, picking up all of the essentials: confetti, bubbly, heart shaped balloons and candies, giant bears, Hallmark cards that made you cry on the spot, etc, etc. Below are some more of my favorite Valentines Day ideas.
I keep begging Scott to do this for me.
We probably should have done something cooler than just going out to dinner but we were short on time with work and school, and short on cash. So went over to Frontier Pies for dinner. I got my favorite strawberry rhubarb pie for dessert. And we red-boxed "Planet of the Apes". Extremely appropriate for Valentines Day. I loved it. We ended the night with some sparkling grape juice (it's even better than apple juice) and some dark chocolate truffles- courtesy of Lindt. I think next year though I will try something more adventurous. Hopefully then I will have more time, resources, and I won't be prego. But all in all it turned out to be a good night.
The highlight of this month though was probably Scott getting his 7:45-8:45 MWF block class done. We've had the luxury of sleeping in a little without that class, and it is SO wonderful to sleep in together. If I'm not sleeping in with Scott and I wake up alone, I feel guilty for sleeping in while he is already up. But together- it's awesome. And plus, he usually makes me pancakes once we're both up and he is the KING of pancakes. Yum.
