Valentine Fun

We were kind of dissapointed in Valentine's day being on a saturday, so I decided to kindd of go with a Valentine's theme for the whole week. Nate was made a lot of his favorite dinners and treats, and I was overwhelmingly sweet all week! :)
My famouse oatmeal choc chip cookies, with a special giant one for Nate!
One of his favorite dishes that I make... I was really proud of this one! Probably the best pizza I've made so far. And it looked so pretty!!
For the actual holiday, all I asked for was no homework. I was really excited to just get one day where I could spend all hours of it with my hubby. That NEVER happens! The day ended up with a whole lot of basketball, but I enjoyed it. Nate had a church ball game that morning, so after a big beautiful breakfast
(yes, those french toasts are kissy shaped! how cute)
we headed off to that. We had a photo session scheduled for our afternoon with our friend Isaac. He's a very creative photographer, and we wanted to give him some practice. :) He's got awesome prices, and the session is very personable, professional, and easy going. (He really didn't tell me to say those things, I jsut mean it!) Check out his website, and you can also see us in the gallery! Thanks so much, Isaac. We had a lot of fun with him and his family, and enjoyed pretending to be lovebirds again. :)

After our photo shoot, we got to have dinner at my VERY FAVORITE restuarant here in Logan, Kamin Thai Cuisine.
I am so in love with this place. The atmosphere is so wonderful, and the food...oh the food. It's just to die for, and that's all there is to it. My meal this time was a special just for Valentine's, and if I was more brave, I would have taken a picture of my volcano chicken. It came out on fire!!! And it was so divinely delicious. We were so sad when we got home, becuase we realized we left our to go boxes on our table. If it hadn't been a complete whiteout, I might have considered going back and finding them. At home, we ate Nate's favorite Ben and Jerry's ice cream for dessert, and sat down to the Aggie bball game on tv. Unfortunately, this stupid game ruined our lovely day; dang aggies, lost to dumb boise. We ended up being entertained by the Slam Dunk Contest. I really loved just being lazy and spending the whole day with Nate-no worries. Even though it wasn't his ideal kind of Valentine's day. He really really really loves surprises, and because we were spending the whole day together, he said he couldn't surprise me and was very dissapointed. He did give me a lovely bouquet of "purple" flowers and 4lbs of red vines. Such a romantic, bless his sweet heart. He knows exactly how to show his love for me.
It's totally ok if you want to call these flowers pink, cause I do. But don't tell Nate that, cause he swears they are purple!
It was so nice to have a much needed long weekend; Tuesday morning came and I was not ready to be an adult with responsiblities again. Mucho love to my hubby for such a wonderful weekend, and we hope you all enjoyed yours as well! Next break is just a few weeks away, and before you know it, hopefully, it will be good weather season!

I hate when we forget our to-go boxes! It usually ends up ruining the night. And we love Kamin, too! Mmm!

Looks like you had an all-around great week!

What a wonderful Valentines! At least you got to spend it together - more than Ross and I did. LOL. And I am so jealous about your trip to the Kaimin - that is our fave restaurant up there and we miss it dearly. We actually went there for VDay 2 years ago and Ross ordered the flaming volcano chicken too. I have never had a dish at that place that dissapointed. SO yummy!

An entire day with Nate!! What a treat!!! You get 100 points for all the Valentine's Day themed food you did for the week! What a good wife you are. It was good to catch up with you at women's conference the other day. I sure miss hanging out with you.
