Feb. 14, 2010 (Happy LOVE Day!)

February 14, 2010

I usually don't post on the weekends, but this weekend is by far one of the best weekends we've had in quite a while! Friday night, we grabbed a bite to eat and just relaxed at home watching the Olympics Opening Ceremonies. It was unbelievable! I'm 1/2 Canadian, and it was so awesome to learn so much about Canada's culture, people, etc. My favorite parts were the whales that looked like they were swimming in the floor, and when they did the Montreal part where they played fiddles and danced. It was awesome!!
Saturday, Eric had to work in the morning, so I went to take some things back that I bought, and went to Old Navy to start Bella's Spring wardrobe. I got her a cute pair of jeans that can roll up and tied to make them capris when it gets warmer out. I also got her 2 pairs of leggings to wear under her dresses and skirts. So cute! Afterwards, I came home and waited for Eric to get off work. Once he got home, we exchanged Valentine's gifts and he told me where we were going that night to celebrate. He got me a gift card to a ritzy spa to get a pedicure. So sweet and he really surprised me this year! Afterwards, we went and had sushi for lunch and then headed to the Domain to walk around. It was a little chilly and the Horns were about to play basketball, so we headed home. Eric watched the game while I took a quick nap. I haven't taken a nap on a Saturday in years! Nice! We ended the night by going to celebrate Valentine's Day at Steiner Ranch Steakhouse. OMG the food was delicious!! I had salmon with asparagus and Eric of course had the New York Strip. Yumm! We finished with wine and cheesecake. It was so good! We were planning on going to a wine bar afterwards, but decided to come home and watch the Olympics and rest. Great night overall!
Today we've gone grocery shopping, out for breakfast, and went to Costco. We have decided to sign up for Costco to try and save some $. We always seem to spend way to much every week on groceries, and thought if we could buy in bulk and just get milk & eggs during the week, then we can save a good chunk of money. I pray it works!! Bella just got back from Pt. Lavaca with Grandma & Grandpa, and is taking a nap. After she wakes up, we'll be taking her to Chuck E Cheese's to celebrate Valentine's with her.
I just can't tell you how happy I am, and how much fun this weekend truly was for us! It was hard to let Bella go for 2 days, but we realized that sometimes we need a weekend by ourselves too. It's a must to keep our marriage as happy & strong as it's always been.
I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day!

Here are the pictures from Chuck E Cheese today. Bella had so much fun and it really made Valentine's Day special!
