We love a reason to celebrate! And while some may call this a "Hallmark holiday", we call it our LOVE holiday. Not only do we show our love for each other, but we also do things that we love.
Our weekend started out with a pizza delivery Friday night. And once the kids went to bed we enjoyed one of our favorite shows... Blue Bloods. We knew we had an early Saturday morning so we called it a night early.
Saturday morning, started around 6:55 a.m. for me. I made hair appointments for myself, Terry and Avery with our stylist, Krystle, at 8 a.m. And just ask Terry, I don't get up early for anything. But when your hair is in need and your stylist just had a handsome little boy (two and a half weeks ago) and volunteers to come in so you can get your "hair did"... you take full advantage! Did I mention what a superwoman she is? She had that baby boy with no epidural in about 3 hours time. Anyway, we all got our hair beautified and came home to quickly get ready for our day date with our couple friends.
We met Ashley and Jared, and Robin and Wade for lunch at Mizu. This was the first time we had ever eaten there, and it did not disappoint! And who doesn't love Hibachi, anyway? Afterwards, we went bowling. Our date was less than $50, and you just can't beat that.
We were all given nicknames for our bowling names. Sweet Cheeks won, and Hot Mama rounded out the top 6. And no, I was not either one of those. I was next to last! HA!
After bowling we went and did a little shopping before heading back to the girls. A big thanks to Ganny for coming to stay with the girls so we could have a day out by ourselves.
Sunday morning the girls woke up just in time for church so they didn't get to see their Valentine's from mommy and daddy. But I did manage to snap a picture of them before we walked out the door.
And it's a good thing we got the picture before church because we came home with two girls sound asleep. Avery woke up when we put her in the bed, but Lenley slept for two hours! So they didn't get to open their Valentine's together, but I guess that made it a little bit more special for them.
Avery got sunglasses, more of the cups she likes, stickers, candy, bracelets, a "Lambie" and a Mickey marker set.
Lenley got some yogurt melts, two books, some sippy cups, and a "Gabby".
Terry and I gave each other gifts, too. But our day date was our Valentine's Day outing. Terry got lots of candy that he likes and a gift card. And I got a gift card and a new Pandora charm for my bracelet. Fitting since I always have mine in my hand...
Before we came home Saturday evening, we stopped in to get something sweet from Edgar's Bakery. It didn't take long to find the perfect treat for our Valentine's Day weekend... chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing in the the shape of a heart — yes!!
We had a great "LOVE" weekend, and hope that your day was full of love and happiness, too! Even though we choose to celebrate this "Hallmark" holiday, we continue to show our love year round. But sometimes it's just nice to highlight our love for each other in our family at a special time during the year.
