Today is February 28th…my last chance to post about Valentines day.
And just because I’m posting about it super late doesn’t mean it wasn’t amazing.
Because it so was!
My husb and Esther’s husb got together and planned a special day for us (there could have possibly been a hint or two thrown their way ;).
First, a 2pm date with the Spa for massages, manicure AND pedicures.
I’ve said it before…I love the spa!
More specifically, I love the spa at my gym.
I love my gym (which sadly I am no longer a member due to this whole job change But I will forever consider it my gym).
On Friday night it turns into a gym/night club.
That sounds sleazy.
A night club without the creepers.
A night club where most people are mom’s and dad’s in gym clothes just trying to get in some exercise.
It’s the dimmed lighting, disco ball, colorful lights flashing, DJ and Zumba that give it the night life feel.
It is totally cheese and totally fun.
Sorry, I’ve gotten a little off track.
Back to Valentines day.
After being pampered at the spa…we forced ourselves to give up the robes and drove home to meet up with the guys who were making us dinner.
We arrived to this
Along with beautiful flower arrangements that turned my kitchen into a fine dining experience (major points for Husb!).
The largest steaks known to man.
With a side of Tasha’s white trash salad (she really should post the recipe…it is delish) and mashed potatoes.
An entire 10lb bag worth of mashed potatoes.
When we arrived Flyn had peeled every last potato in the bag and they had fully intended to boil them all.
We had the largest food babies ever after dinner.
This is how we felt
But it was Valentine’s day so we topped it off with chocolate fondue, courtesy of Esther, who really is the nicest wife ever.
She didn’t want them to have to worry about dessert.
The thought never even crossed my mind
I’d like to say we did something crazy afterwards like went dancing ( crazy huh!).
However, we could only make it as far as the couches.
Our stomaches would let us go no farther.
It was a Valentines day that I will not forget.
Thanks sweet husband!
You did an amazing job.
And a big thanks to Flyn and Esther for sharing the holiday with us!
PS…my new laptop came!
A sweet MacBook Air!
I’m still in the process of learning how to use it (I’ve always been a PC) and am looking for a good blog posting application.
I used MarsEdit for this post…but haven’t figured out how to link works or round the edges of my pictures.
I must admit…I miss Windows LiveWriter.
