Happy Monday! Did you have a good weekend? We did! Despite the yucky snow keeping us inside on Sunday, we had a fun weekend! Hubs and I don’t “celebrate” Valentine’s Day per say, but I do enjoy doing themed things. We don’t swap gifts or anything like that, but I’ll share what we did do! On Saturday, we ran some errands on the quest for a new laundry sorting system. Being married to an engineer, every part of our lives has to be engineered. So, we found one we liked, we took Miss H to Toys R Us and she used a birthday gift card and we are officially in the Disney Princess phase of life. Ariel is now at out house. Lovely.
While Miss H napped I baked a heart cake. Not too bad for a circle and a square pan. I was all excited about finding the idea on pinterest only to find it was ON THE BACK OF THE BOX. Doh! Oh well, it turned out cute!
Then Saturday night, my BFFie and her husband came over and we all went to Red Robin and came home to play games. We played this weird sheep game that was pretty fun and then we broke out our favorite Ticket to Ride. Gosh, I love that game.
Sunday morning, I was supposed to take Intensive Class at Pure Barre and it was canceled due to the snow, so I whipped up a copycat of St. Louis Bread Co (or Panera evewhere else’s) Broccoli Cheese Soup. It turned out really well!
Then when Miss H woke up we finished off a half batch of cookie dough I made earlier in the week and of course Miss H got a little heavy handed with the sprinkles. To be expected.
Saturday night my MIL called and asked if we had any Valentine’s Day plans and we had said no, we didn’t really celebrate, but she offered to watch Miss H so we could go out to dinner. Of course with it being a holiday none of our usual favorites had reservations so I went with one that I had heard about and booked it on Open Table. As we were driving I pull up the menu only to find out they had a Valentine’s Day only menu (AKA double the price and lobster & filets) and I wasn’t really wanting super fancy or spending an arm and a leg!
So we canceled and hubs suggested a Babbo’s Spaghetteria
instead. It was perfect. No frills, good food and it wasn’t crazy busy. We are already go out later this week, so I wanted to make sure we weren’t going crazy with going out all week.
And the proof a date night happened!
Our wedding anniversary is in March (8 years O M G) and we usually like to go big for that over a commercial holiday.
So that was our weekend! How did you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
