This is my first time participating in Mamalicious Monday a fun Monday meme hosted by Heather @ The Gift Closet. Here’s hoping I don’t screw it up!

Anyway, what I wanted to talk about today was (big surprise) Valentine’s Day! I’ve been superly excited about VDay for a couple weeks now, mostly because we were planning a trip to the new local Mexican restaurant that just opened up (at least we just learned about it). I looooove me some good Mexican food so I had my fingers crossed that it wouldn’t disappoint. I’d been craving enchiladas and deep fried ice cream for weeks in anticipation of the most romantic holiday of the year. So I was taken by surprise when my husband started the holiday a few days early and brought home this:

So, not only did he notice flowers and buy them for me, he gave them to me while quoting one of our favorite family films, Shrek.

I saw this flower and thought of you because it’s pretty, and, well… I don’t really like it but I thought you might like it ‘coz you’re pretty. But I like you anyway.

Très romantique, non? So for the past several days I’ve been having fun taking pictures of my beautiful bouquet from every angle I can come up with.

MM has been busy enjoying the flowers, too.

And to top it all off? The mexican food was absofreakinglutely delicious! I cannot wait to go back there soonish for more fantastic food! All in all, it’s been a fantastic Valentine’s Day indeed.

    Love that he referenced Shrek. That kind of thing happens at our house a lot too. Those boys know what makes us laugh, huh? 🙂

    Glad you had a great VDay!

    Sounds like you had a wonderful day. Your flowers are beautiful but I Loved MM’s expressions while looking @ them. My kids aren’t that old but still neither one of them have that new-eyed look of wonder anymore @ things like that. Just priceless!

    Love the flowers! Love that he gave you something different than say roses. Nothing wrong with roses but you know what I mean.
    So glad your Mexican food was good. Your making me crave some enchiladas.
