This is not our first rodeo when it comes to Valentine's day. Last year, Andrew and I had been dating for a little over a month when the day of love rolled around. I remember that evening very clearly. I was nervous because I obviously wanted to do/give something sweet to my boyfriend, but I wasn't sure what would be appropriately cutesy without being lovey-dovey (because, need I remind you, I was definitely afraid of the L-word at this point). I ended up making home made fortune cookies (which were a lot harder than I want to admit) and filled them with corny pickup lines. Then I bought him some Kiss Stix (Best Gift Ever!) and a small gift card to get a cheesecake.
Andrew made me dinner that night. He barbecued steaks and made roasted potatoes. I offered to toast some bread in the oven, which I quickly burned (not one of my finer, culinary moments). Dinner was delicious, and afterwards we made an intense blanket fort, watched a movie, and tried out the Kiss Stix ;) My favorite part of the night, however, was the card Andrew gave me.
This year was round 2, but round 1 as a married couple. We decided not to just celebrate Valentine's Day on February 14, but rather we celebrated each other throughout the entire weekend. On Friday, we drove out of the nasty smog of the valley and visited Park City. After walking up and down Main Street, we had dinner at a lovely little Italian restaurant. Our night ended at the outlets, where Andrew bought me some new boots and a cute tea kettle.
We spent all day Saturday together. The night ended with us eating dinner and watching a chick flick under a master blanket fort (like we had done on our first Valentine's together).
Then on Sunday, I woke up early (I always do) and made a big breakfast for Andrew. He woke up perfectly at 9 when I was finishing up, and I served it to him in bed. I gave him my gift (cuff links that had a little message on them), which he wore to church. Yup, it was a wonderful weekend.
Side note / Funny Story:
The cuff links I gave to Andrew had (what I thought) was our wedding date engraved on them. As we sat in church, I glanced over to see my awesome gift, but I was quickly horrified when I realized I had put 11.28.2016 instead of 2015! Oh my gosh, I could have died! Woops. Guess I'm already forgetting when we got married.
