I just have something really funny to share before I tell ya’ll what we did for Valentine’s Day: There was NOTHING but couples at the restaurant we went to last night! Luke and I walked in and were being taken to our table, and I am not kidding when I say that every single table had a couple at it. What was even funnier was that Luke and I knew we were both thinking the same thing about how funny it looked. If you went out to dinner last night, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. Nobody probably thinks it’s funny like I do though; oh well. Moving on!
Luke wouldn’t let me plan anything last night, which was great. Since I’m with kids all day, I’m constantly deciding what to do and when since they’re too young to make a real decision of their own yet. When I’m with my clients, I tell them how and what to do. After work the last thing I want to do is make a decision of any kind. So I appreciated him making the plans more than anything!
He started out by bringing me roses to my door. Super cute. I really dislike flowers, but it was a sweet gesture
Then we went to our favorite Italian restaurant (or I suppose favorite restaurant, ever) for dinner. It’s a local family-owned place. The best in my opinion! It also worked out very well, because I’m obsessed with their minestrone soup and I’ve been super sick since yesterday afternoon. Boooo. I knew the girls I nanny being sick would catch up to me. So I got a bowl of the soup and a Caesar salad, which I don’t get very often, but had a huge craving for it. They also have these garlicky breadstick things that are to die for. I need the recipe for those things.
After dinner we went to Wal-Mart to get some cheap wine to sneak into the movies. Keepin’ it classy. But really. Our movie theater has a bar in it and it’s like, $10 for a beer. That is insane. I will be drinking my $4 Barefoot Cabernet, thank you very much.
We saw Safe Haven which I thought was absolutely phenomenal. I read the book quite a while ago and was pleasantly surprised to find that they followed the storyline perfectly. I cried through a good portion of it. That may have had to do with the mixture of cough medicine and wine though. Oops. Regardless, it was very sad but then very happy and very good. Go see it. Now.
You want to know what my gift was? That I didn’t ask for? A KEURIG. I’m pumped. And yes, I will be keeping it in my bathroom so I can make coffee in the morning without ever having to leave my bedroom. Life’s good. Any suggestions on good k-cups to buy?
Even though I was half dead by the end of the night and could barely keep my eyes open, it was a great time. Hence, no post last night. I would have been just as happy sitting at home watching a movie and ordering pizza, but it was great to go out and do/have some of our favorite things. I feel very lucky today
What are our thoughts on romantic movies?? I usually am not that big of a fan, but if I read the book and love it, you bet I’m going to go see the movie version.
