Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

I hope you are all getting in some quality time with your sweethearts today :)

I was a super sneaky wife yesterday and surprised Matt with a really nice date - at home. We were originally planning to go out but I have been over-doing it a bit on my foot lately and felt really tired, so I decided to do something fun at home instead. I told him I got restaurant reservations so he totally didn't expect it.

For supper we had good steaks, roasted veggies, baked potatoes, coleslaw, and yummy trifle for dessert. I hung little paper hearts from the cieling fan (had to stand on a chair to do this, I think it got me extra brownie points lol), put a red cloth on the table, some red candles, and got some cute glittery heart decorations from the dollar store. And then we ate in the dark, because I am nerdy like that and wanted to feel like I was in a restaurant. Matt was slightly annoyed by that part but I didn't care :P We listened to 80's sattelite radio while we ate and tried to guess the songs/artists. I mostly failed - but for some unknown reason I guessed "echo beach" after hearing only a few lines.

Then we watched Zack and Miri Make a Porno and Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist. All in all, this valentine's day has been the best ever so far and we still have a baby sitter until tomorrow! I think there may be Mario Party/Rockband times in store...

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Just for fun... here's a video of the song I currently can't stop singing, I think it is appropriate for valentine's day. I can't help it.. I love Lady Gaga. The part where she is in bed with pink heels is just too adorable!

Aww...sounds like a wonderful Valentine's date!! I love those cozy at-home nights. Sometimes they're even better than going out cause you really CAN just focus on each other! :)
