Happy Love DayThursday, February 14, 2013
Happy Valentine's Day everybody! I have been totally slacking in the whole "drafting posts ahead of time" thing, so today's post is going to be a little less in depth than I had originally planned. I thought maybe I would use today as an excuse to tell about my husband and mine's love story! It will have to wait for another day though, because in true Amy fashion, I have a huge list of things to do today, and I didn't give myself enough time. So instead, I'll just fill you in on our v-day plans!
I love Valentine's Day. I know it's not the funnest day for some people, especially if you're single. I've definitely been there. And I try to always let my husband know how much I love him, everyday. I love to surprise him with little treats all the time! But, I'll take any extra excuse to be romantic and sweet with my honey, and since there's a holiday for that, I'm all on board!
This morning I made heart shaped pancakes for the first time, but what made it special was the fact that I made breakfast on a weekday. Trust me, that's a big deal, and very much appreciated by Dane. I also kidnapped him from work for lunch at one of our favorite cafes. It was really nice, and I think he enjoyed the break from the stresses of work. I know I did!
For the big night, we usually don't do a big huge thing. There's no gifts, no jewelry, no chocolates, or flowers (actually, a couple of times, there have been flowers). The most commercial thing we do is buy cards, and that doesn't even happen every year, because sometimes I get my lazy self in gear and make him one! Tonight I just plan on making a nice dinner, like I usually do. I'll light some candles, and we'll probably watch a movie. I want to spend some time playing board games, because it's been a while since we have, and we're nerds like that! Also, I'm super excited about the dessert we're having! There's a very pretty, little wine and tapas bar here in town that serves the best flour-less, chocolate cake ever! I'll be stopping by there this afternoon to pick up a slice for us to share.
That is what our Valentine's day looks like, and I've been having a great day.
Before I go, here's a bit of craftiness. I made my sisters some holiday themed bookmarks, which they will be receiving late (of course). I also made Dane a card this year. I'm pretty happy with how they all turned out! What are all of your plans for this lovey-dovey day? Did you make anything crafty? Let me know, and I hope you all have a great day!
