This is our 2nd Valentine’s day together, but our first as husband and wife. Last year he bought me some awesome gifts. A movie, some chocolate, a pink teddy bear, and had roses sent to my office! It was great. This year, he let me go spend the weekend with my mom and sister! LOL!
See, my dad goes to Mardi Gras every year with a group of guys for street witnessing. So that is our girls weekend. So my amazing hubby decided that he would pick up some extra shifts at Outback (so he’d have something to do!) so I could spend the weekend with my mom and sister. But he didn’t forget about me! On Saturday he had flowers sent to my mom’s house for me. Five red roses and one purple rose. (Since purple is my fave color) It was so awesome. (I got mine a couple of hours after my mom got roses sent from my dad!!)
On Sunday, after hubby got off work and I got back from Nashville, we went to Olive Garden for dinner. Which was OH SO AMAZING!! (Seriously try the new Four Cheese Stuffed Pansotti with Chicken!) After our fabulous dinner, we headed to the movie theater to see “Valentine’s Day”. I really wanted to see it! I am so glad hubby agreed to see it because it was awesome! So much better than I thought it would be. If you haven’t seen it, I’m not going to give anything away. If you have seen it, then you should understand why Julia Roberts’ character was my favorite. (If you don’t understand why, ask me!)
When we got home, this is what we saw:
I had gotten the banner and the balloon with the teddy bear to weigh it down for the Valentine’s Day themed scrapbooking day my mom, sister and I had with some friends on Saturday. Part of our girls weekend. I brought them back home before I went to Olive Garden to meet hubby. I hadn’t seen his gifts for me though! He also got me Sarah Palin’s new book that I’ve been begging for! YAY! So excited to read that! I got hubby a giant red heart pen (He uses giant pens to take orders at Outback!) and some chocolate. I didn’t get him anything else, because he is getting a Zune for his birthday! His birthday was last week, but I just ordered the Zune. LOL! He knew he was getting it. That was he can have tons of music while he’s deployed.
So that was our Valentine’s Day. I think it was pretty awesome! What did you do for Valentine’s Day?
