An afternoon with my Valentine.

I mentioned earlier that we celebrate Valentine's Day as a family... Well, that's true, but I didn't say that my sweetheart and I don't celebrate ourselves as well.  :)  Early on, we decided that "going out" on Valentine's Day was craziness.  We tried it the first couple of years we were married, and it was so crazy to get a table, even for two.  So, we would make dinner at home.  (This is how the tradition began to have a family dinner, by the way.)  But every year, we will do a little something special.  Some of my favorites are the special notes Jason will write to me on any given holiday.  Sometimes they might come on Valentine's Day, or maybe my birthday.  Those are near and dear to me.  Or we might exchange small gifts.  Well, this year, he took today off (the Friday AFTER Valentine's) and we just spent the day together, hangin' out... Oh... and picking out my gift.  :)

I wanted a chair for my family room.  Doesn't sound romantic to you?  Well, never you mind what YOU think of it.  My husband knows me well, and he knew this would thrill me... SOOO... he took me shopping for a chair.  :)  And I AM ELATED with our choice.  :)  Here we are!

Then, we had lunch.  YUM!  My 7-pepper steak salad.

Have you ever had the fried cheesecake dessert at Longhorn Steakhouse?  If you haven't, DO indulge at some time or another.  It's an old favorite of ours.  :)

We kinda licked it clean.  Haha!


It was a nice day.  The weather was beautiful, and I spent it with my absolute favorite person in the whole, wide world.  Happy Friday!
