Happy Valentine’s day!
Happy Valentines day y’all! My husband came home yesterday with flu meds, (he’s a little under the weather) a dozen roses and a big box of chocolates. He then took my car to put oil in it and fill my gas tank up (I’m always verging on empty so this was a treat.) I went off to work and then off we went to dine at the Cheesecake Factory. YUM. Have you ever had their fried mac and cheese? So good. Even better was the company: Fernanda and I got all dolled up for our boys from her hotel room. I wore a dress. I don’t wear all that many dresses or ever put that much make-up on but I figured with all my boy did for me I could get extra hot/ pretty. I even bought fake eyelashes! One of them fell off somewhere in the night so I wouldn’t call that a success. But the night with our boys? Definitely pretty perfect.
AND look at this cheesecake. Adam’s Peanut Butter Fudge Ripple.To this I say, I thank-you Adam, you are a good man.
I think my favorite part of Valentine’s day isn’t the roses or chocolate (though that’s a close second)…but the giddy school-girlness it brings to so many of us ladies. My daddy has sent my mom something every single day for a week now (chocolate covered strawberries, a necklace, roses….etc) and she is adorably giddy. She’s like a teenager all over again. It’s really pretty cute and makes me smile as I’m writing this. I’m hoping my husband takes notes from my dad on how to act twenty one years from now. Hee. I turned into a giddy schoolgirl myself last night when we got home. This happens fairly easily as I’m still new to Valentine’s day and this is only my third ever receiving anything from someone besides my dad (who always made my Valentine’s day great!) Last night, I convinced Robby to watch the Hannah Montana movie with me (I know, I know. I’m thirteen at heart) and he couldn’t stand it for more than thirty minutes. A song came on after he had walked away that I was instantly intrigued with. I heard “I always get my way.” and I had to download. So here I am from the other room downloading my song, and the dude calls me out on it! “I knew you were downloading that song…I was listening to the lyrics and I just know you.” How can somebody know me that well?! It amazes me and creeps me out and makes my heart beat super fast. That was just as good to me as any rose or candy or even…cheesecake. And that’s hard to beat! I say this a lot but man…I’m a happy, lucky girl.
