Love Day Celebration!

Collin and I have praise team practice at 6:30 every Tuesday night. Because of that we couldn't celebrate Valentine's Day properly on the day itself so we had an early celebration on Monday evening! I'm pretty sure I've mentioned it here on my blog before but in case you all don't remember (and for the new followers) Collin and I had our first date at Chick-Fil-A. Romantic, right? But honestly, it was such a fun and memorable afternoon together so therefore Chick-Fil-A is "our" place. It doesn't hurt that the food is oh so yummy, too! Anyway, we had our Valentine's dinner at Chick-Fil-A and it was great! We got and ate our food and then sat in the booth next to each other just talking and planning for our romantic weekend! As a sort of continued Valentine's celebration Collin booked a room at a local hotel for tomorrow night just so we can "get away". And Collin amazingly enough has off work on Saturday so we're just going to do whatever we please and enjoy a NORMAL-person weekend! Hurray!
Early Valentine's dinner with my love at "our" restaurant! My scrumdiddlyumptious original chicken sandwich. So, so good. Love Day 002 We had a coupon from our Chick-Fil-A calendar so we got the new chicken tortilla soup. That stuff was spicy! But it has a good flavor! Love Day 001 Love Day 003 Love Day 004 Love Day 005
This man makes my heart so happy!

Our actual Valentine's Day wasn't completely without celebration. We were able to have lunch together and that was very nice. And after praise team practice we made grilled cheese and tomato soup and watched some tv together while cuddling on the couch and it was just relaxing and nice.

I will say though, I had a meltdown in the afternoon. After work I went to Target to finish getting Collin's Valentine's gift together. I was planning on printing out a picture from our first Valentine's together and the picture of us from above where we're both smiling at the camera and I was going to put it into a notebook and begin a year-long journal where I write down what I love about Collin each day. I was going to give it to him with the two pictures and the first day filled out and then give it back to him next year completely filled. Heh. That did not work out so well. I spent an HOUR AND A HALF at the Kodak Picture Kiosk in Target. Never again will I use that machine. Anyway... I was literally so frustrated with it I was almost in tears standing there in the middle of Target. And it was not a user-error either. The dumb thing took 45 minutes to LOAD the pictures from my phone. And then once they were loaded it kept glitching and scrolling past the picture I needed. And then it wouldn't even let me select it if it would land on it. It was as if every time you touched the screen it would move the scroll bar even if you weren't touching the scroll bar. So yeah... after an hour and a half at the machine I gave up. I ended up getting home over an hour after I was planning to and Collin's gift wasn't complete and I was so frustrated with the picture kiosk that I just had a meltdown. But Collin was so sweet. He came into our bedroom and sat with me and let me blubber out what was wrong and then he of course told me that it was all okay and that he appreciated the thought. He told me he was sure what I did get him was great. And of course he loved it. I still gave him the journal sans pictures but I also bought him lots of Twizzler Nibs. They were the only thing he asked for so I got him lots! I'm so blessed to have such a sweet and understanding husband. Someone who loves me despite my meltdowns and takes the time to encourage me and love me even when I don't deserve to be loved. I thank God daily for my wonderful, wonderful husband.

Anyway, sorry for that rant. I'm quite pleased with my gift from Collin! I got a gigantic bag of Lindt chocolates!! Soo yummy!

Amazing Valentine's gift from my love. Sooo yummy!

How was your Valentine's Day? I hope you were able to spend it with the people you love most and that it was a day filled with love and sweet surprises!



  1. Too funny, I just got home and am eating a bowl of Chic-fila chicken tortilla soup as I'm typing this! My daughter is a Chick-fila nut. And the soup is pretty good too. Happy Valentine's day to both of yo u.


  2. I love Chic-fil-a! I ate lunch there yesterday, and ALMOST tried out that soup. I love maybe next time!
