I kinda started on the weekend, by giving John cards Saturday night- Monday night. I like to stretch out every holiday : )
Monday morning started earlier for hubby- as he agreed to get up and eat the breakfast I made.
|I believe he said "Are you kidding me?"|
|Yum Yum. Bacon, cheese eggs, banana muffins and Ovaltine|
|Took the pic at home though|
That afternoon I got off work a couple hours early so I could have time to primp, and so we could beat the mad rush to the restaurant. I used hot rollers for my hair- but my hair is going through curl rebellion lately- so it quickly fell out to this:
|Shows the highlights hubby helped me do quite well though|
|Underneath I had on a red cotton dress and black boots|
|Sunset as we drove to dinner|
|Ready for yummy!|
|View from the outside bar area|
|Waiting for our table|
|View from the other side of the restaurant|
|Crispy pork shank with braised cabbage|
|John's Cowgirl Ribeye|
|How sweet is love!|
Here's the results of our cards. We like to do more than one : )
The ones on the left are to John from me. The ones on the right are the reverse : ) John even included a card from the kids to me (the puppy one).
The card he sent with the flowers read: You will always be my Valentine. I love you more then ever. Misspell included on purpose. That's how I know it's from my adorable yet spelling impaired husband : )
John Moment: The Homer Simpson card was slid under the bathroom door as I was getting ready. It's somewhat of an inside joke. You see, my manly husband has an *intense* dislike of even the thought of anyone knowing what he's doing in the bathroom. And he doesn't want to even hear me tinkle either. If I need toilet paper, he opens the door the tiniest amount possible and shoves his hand in with his eyes closed. He would like to pretend that no one potties : ) Although he doesn't mind talking about his bathroom habits. Anyway. The Homer card talks about when people are together long enough, they get comfortable. On the inside is a view of Homer's backside (clothed) standing just inside a door. It has sound and says "I'm wizzin' with the door open, and I'm lovin' it" Lol. John wrote "Not this year, but maybe next!" Too funny that man!
So here's to hoping everyone else had a lovely Love Day too!
