The BEST Valentine's Day

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!! I certainly did!! We decided to stay in last night and not mess with the crowd at restaurants. I was perfectly happy to stay in and enjoy a quiet romantic, Valentine's night together!!

{Mike bought me some beautiful flowers instead of having some sent to me! I actually loved this more because I got twice the flowers I would have gotten if he had ordered them! Not to say I never want him to surprise me with some flowers, but so much of the money goes into the delivery and a vase that's usually not very pretty, so I was so happy he did what he did!!}

{I cam home for lunch and M had a gift basket waiting for me and a c.d on top. He called me and told me to listen to song #2 on my way back to work, and I did. It was "I Thought I Loved You Then" by Brad Paisley. It made me cry, and I mean really cry!! I'm not always like that, but everything about the song was SO true and SO us!! I had to collect myself before I went back in to work, ha ha! But I did call & I left him a voicemail thanking him for the c.d! He used to make me c.d.'s when we were dating and so this was such a surprise and the best gift he could ever give me!! Better than anything he could ever buy!!}

{This was our little Valentine's set up. Since we were staying in, I thought I would ad a few cute valentine's touches!}


{My adorable Valentine!!}

{He got us Sushi for a little appetizer before dinner! My fav!!}

{Another thing he surprised me with was my very favorite treat - chocolate covered strawberries!! They were soooo good!!}

{Enjoyin some wine!!}

{My sweethearts!!}

{M cooking us dinner!!}

{He cooked Salmon, a crab cake, and some veggies for me!}

{He had Chicken Parmesan, twice baked potato and veggies}

{Love him!!}

{Dessert time!!}

{Petit Fours!!}
{Mr. Big was trying to get into our sweets and I was telling him no sir! He was really wanting one obviously! But he had his own little treats.}

{Raspberry filling . . . yummm}

{Instead of getting cards for each other, we decided to write little notes . . . "love notes" I guess you could say. I got some paper and we cut hearts out for our notes. M even helped cut them out!! Such a sport!! I secretley think he liked it because when I told him I would cut the rest he said no, that he would cut more, haha}

{Love notes}

{Then we ended our night by listening to the awesome c.d. he made me. He had songs by Brad Paisley, Jason Mraz and Colby Caillat to name a few}

I think it was just about the BEST Valentine's Day we have ever had. All of them have been good, but it was nice to just be at home, relax and spend time together!! I loved it and I love him more than words could ever say! I am so incredibly blessed to have him!! Cupid knew what he was doing!!

We stayed in too and my hubby cooked me dinner. Really, I much prefer doing this. More intimate and you don't have to mess with all the crowds are spend crazy money for an 'ok' meal. Love that your hubs cooked himself one meal and you another!! Do you all eat separate meals a lot?
