Happy Valentines Day Weekend!

Well its Monday and we're back at work, but we had a wonderful valentine weekend!

Friday I left work at 3:30 and headed to meet Kyle at our accountants. Got in and out pretty quick and hit the video store to rent some movies for our weekend in! We rented Fireproof, Lakeview Terrace, and My Best Friend's Girl. Then we headed to Subway to get our supper for a night in...$5 footlongs!!! They're back...any footlong for $5! Love it! I usually get ham & turkey, but I decided to switch it up and got the chicken terayki!

We watched My Best Friend's Girl first and it was not too great in my opinion. Pretty raunchy (sp?). So I was glad we got that one out of the way first!

I forgot about the best part about Friday! We stopped at Target and I wasn't sure why, Kyle said he needed something. And so we walk in to the electronics department and he said "Which one do you want" while standing in front of the ipod counter!! I was so ecstatic!!! I've wanted a new ipod for a while, mine is from 2005 and is only a 1gb! So of course I picked the pink nano that happened to come with a free $15 gift card!! I haven't opened it yet...we are talking about maybe taking it back and getting a bigger one. Any opinions on the ipod touch? I don't know much about it. Or do you think I should just get the bigger classic ipod? Which is better for working out?

Kyle took Saturday off. And for those of you who know us, know that he rarely is off Saturdays. It was so nice to have him home for v-day! We slept in till about 8...which was way better than our normal 5:30am!! I got right to my v-day plans. I made Kyle heart shaped chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast!


Then I got right to baking! I made heart shaped sugar cookies with pink frosting, a double batch of chocolate chip cookies, and banana bread (forgot to take a picture though!). I love to bake, but I hate keeping it around...I could down cookie after cookie and before I know it they would ALL be gone and that would be BAD!! Sssssoooo......



We made our baked goods into valentine gifts for some of our friends & neighbors! I love to do paper crafts so I made a few quick cards, custom treat bags, and put it all together and made some deliveries! It's always fun to do a little something special for those special people in your lives! Now I couldn't do it for EVERYONE!! Was not prepared for that all...this was all done I whim! So I am sorry to all my friends & family that didn't get one! We only did 5...and there are many more than 5 special people in our lives!



By the time I got home from our deliveries of v-day goodies it was about time to think about supper. We knew we were staying in and I just the idea. So I hurried out of the house and got Kyle's favorite...Casey's pizza! And I got my favorite...Applebees spinach artichoke dip! Mmmmm!!

Look at all that cheesy, greasy goodness!


Kyle was happy about his surprise supper! We still had two more movies to watch so we got right down to business and watched Lakeview Terrace. Boy that kept your heart pumping!! That guy is a nutso!! In between we made our own version of Cheddars' Cookie Monster...warm chocolate chip cookie, ice cream, fudge, & cool whip!! Oh holy, yum!!!

So after that movie we popped in Fireproof...while drinking a glass of some cheap wine we bought the grocery store! It wasn't too bad, esp for only $4.99!! :)

Fireproof was definitely a low-budget movie, but has a GREAT message! Here is one of my few of my favorite quotes from the movie...that I can remember: "Fireproof doesn't mean the fire will never come. It means when the fire comes that you will be able to withstand it." I really want to get the Love Dare book now and do that...sounds like it would be GREAT!

And last by not least for v-day...here is a pic of Kyle & I! We've been married for almost 4 years now and I would have to say that we're very blessed! (sorry this isn't a very good pic...but I wanted to post one!!)


After church on Sunday Kyle & I went to a local buffet that has $5.99 brunch/chinese buffet! Kyle loves breakfast food & I love chinese! Afterwards we headed home and took a nice afternoon siesta! In the afternoon Kyle joined me for a nice Sunday run! I think he's going to be sore tomorrow!

We hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day! I know we sure did...and for those of you who are off today for President's Day....you stink! (j/k)
