Since I know you were all wondering, I thought I would fill you on on how Mike & I celebrated Valentine's Day. I had to work both jobs that day so I didn't even see Mike. But on Wednesday night I stopped by his house after church & he gave me these beautiful roses. He likes to do things a little differently, hence the colors. "Red is boring b/c that's what every guy gets for his girl," he says. So I got lavender & pink roses & my they were beautiful! He also gave me a couple very funny, very sweet cards (that's one of them propped up on the vase in the picture). So, we both worked too hard on Valentine's Day & then we celebrated on Friday night. Mike picked me up (he's very old school about that & I love it!) & we went out to dinner at this wonderful Japanese restaurant. We had some sushi & some other good stuff & then we bummed around town running some errands (I know - so romantic!). Then we went back to his house for dessert - he had made this beautiful Oreo Cheesecake - say it with me people, YUM!
All in all, it was quite the satisfactory holiday. I know that some people consider it to be a Hallmark made occasion, but Valentine's Day was around long before Hallmark.
At least I think so (I haven't actually researched it). But I think it's fun to do something a little special. We didn't go nuts & spend tons of money; in fact, I haven't actually delivered my gift to Mike yet. I'm supposed to cook him dinner & our schedules & my ridiculous illness has put the kibosh on those plans. But I'm going to do it soon! Maybe even in my own kitchen!
