Valentine's Day


I must confess, I am not a huge fan of Valentine's day.
It has never been a major holiday of importance to me. I don't think I ever got what all the fuss is about.
And even though my love cup is clearly overflowing in the present, Kev and I opted for a nice, relaxing dinner at home.

We had originally thought about making reservations, getting all dolled up and going out to eat.
Then the reality of a Tuesday night set in. Not to mention the exhaustion from all the fun that has been going on in our lives since he popped the question last weekend.


Yep, still floating!

Kev and I work our tails off Monday through Friday.
Throw in workouts, doggie walks/workout and all of my patient paperwork in the evenings and it's lights out around 1030.
Instead of going out to eat, we opted for takeout in our sweats. In our house, the weekends are made for makeup, high heels and glam.
And we didn't just get any take
out, Mexican takeout!


We also agreed we wouldn't spend a lot of v-day gift this year due to the every growing cost of an upcoming wedding.
We treated ourselves to quick trip to the local sporting goods store.
I bought him mesh workout shorts, he bought me a new sports bra that gives me a major una boob. Sexy, I know.

We ate a ton of food, had some beers, snuggled with the doggies and finished season 2 of the Good Wife on dvd.
 All evening, something did feel different....
I kept looking at him thinking, "I am going to marry this man."
I could not stop smiling.
Valentine's day perfection in my book ladies.

You two are precious--- can we be best friends with you guys?! :) You look SO MUCH like a girl I know too.... any relatives in the Cincinnati/Dayton area?? lol

We were the same way =) we didn't really care about Valentine's before getting married - it was always REALLY low key. Well since getting married we have learned to appreciate the 'holiday' =) it is the ONLY day of the ENTIRE year that no one is going to bother you because they KNOW you are spending time with your spouse. ESPECIALLY because somehow, after you say "I Do" - life speeds up and you are ALWAYS busy lol =)
