Happy Valentines Day to all my bloggy readers. I just loved today’s post at Crappy Pictures. This pretty much sums up Valentines Day as a married woman, at least in my house hold. My husband has no problem being romantic, but sometimes he needs a reminder or two or he’ll forget what day it is (or what time, or what month). His office actually gives their employees a box of chocolates for Valentines Day each year – it’s like they know who they are employing. Forgetful programmers with very patient wives. :O)
It’s just about naptime and so far it’s shaping up to be a pretty relaxing Valentines Day. I thought about running errands or going on some big involved playdate but decided that the perfect Valentine to myself would be a little TLC.
I enjoyed a delicious latte in my new coffee mug and let myself spend as much time as I wanted photographing said coffee mug. I have a weird addiction to photographing my coffee and it makes my hubby roll his eyes and probably makes the people at the coffee shops that I frequent think that I’m either crazy or one of those foodie photographers. I hope it’s the latter.
I drank the coffee slowly and leisurely while scrolling through Facebook and checking my email and RSS feeds while BB watched the same episode of Doc McStuffins repeatedly (her request).
For lunch I made her a butterfly PB&J and put tonight’s dinner in the crock pot. A beer chicken recipe that smells amazing with a mac and cheese peace offering for the kids. We’ll have to eat quickly because the boys have a pack meeting tonight (very romantic, no?) but before they leave, I’m planning to give the kids their Valentines from the parental unit (me and Dan). I’ll share with you their presents in another post.
Dan and I exchanged mushy romantic cards and a few goodies last night after a very romantic family dinner at Uno’s (I’m in love with their pizza skins, it’s a rather scandalous affair). Tonight I’m banking on that box of chocolates and maybe a glass of wine if we’re not too tired tonight after the pack meeting. Basically, a perfect day. <3
Happy Valentines Day to all my lovely readers! I hope your day is filled with love, pampering and a little TLC!
