We started off Valentine's weekend by going to see this movie

We went to see this movie with another one of our couple friends and our good friend whose hubby is deployed. Us girls loved the movie but the guys didn't care for it too much. All in all I thought it was worth seeing

Saturday I had to work 8-230. I came home from work expecting to lay around all day but the hubs took me on a little shopping spree! We then went over to a friend's house where us girl's drank a few glasses of wine and the boys played Modern Warfare

This morning I woke up and attended my online class. I then made the hubs and I a nice breakfast of scrambled eggs and toast. During breakfast there was a knock on the door, M had had flowers delivered!!(Now on a sidenote, M has the worst luck with ordering flower's. For the past 2 years everytime he has ordered flower's for me they are either the wrong flower or they turn up a week later. I finally had to tell him that the romance of receiving flowers was taken out of the gesture when they turned up dead!) Again this time the flower's were wrong, a day late and there was no card. But hey, it was the thought that counts and they were beautiful!

After breakfast I shooed M out the door to do some grocery shopping. As soon as he left I set up our table with his v-day and b-day presents!
Our table looked something like this

M came home and I immediately had him open his gifts. For Valentine's day I blew up one of our wedding pictures and typed out our vows and put them in a frame
Here he is opening up the frame

Next I had him open his Birthday presents. I knew he really wanted a wireless keyboard for his play station so I gave in and bought him one. You only turn 30 once! And since I will be gone this coming week and I will miss his birthday I figured it was the least I could do. I also bought him the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition since his subscription to the magazine hadn't gone into effect yet

After gift's I made some yummy red velvet cupcakes..

and after relaxing most of the afternoon we ordered chinese food and rented A Time Traveler's Wife.
It was a perfect day. I am just happy that for the first time in almost three years we were able to spend our first valentine's day together. I love you babe!!

I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day!!


  1. I love your vow/wedding picture idea! It looks beautiful. Where did you get the frame?

  2. AW your VAlentine's Day presant was so cute I love it what a great idea..

  3. Sounds like a great weekend!

  4. oh my gosh you are such a wonderful wife!! your hubby is very lucky... you have inspired me to be more thoughtful! :)
    looks like you had a wonderful valentine's day!

  5. Hey, at least the guys got some eye candy throughout the movie, I'd assume? :) I'm glad you liked it. I didn't like Love Actually, which I heard this one is very similar to, so I was iffy. Did you see/like Love Actually or think it was similar?

    The frame and wedding vows are such a cute idea! I really like that. :)

    Happy Valentine's Day!

  12. Ahh, sounds as though you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!! And so beautifully set out too!

    I'm definitely looking forward to seeing Valentine's Day :)
