My Valentine- 2008

We didn't do much. I had to work from 1-5, so we just spent the evening in. When I got off work, I picked up dinner, went home picked up Mr. H then went to the cemetery to take the boys some fresh flowers. It was quiet and LOVE-ly.

When I got home from my trip on Sunday, Mr. H and Aaron greeted me at the airport with 2 roses (one pink and one red). Since they are still alive and blooming I didn't need any more. I did get him a yellowish orange one because it reminded me of the sunset and a heart shaped balloon (I also got one for the boys). Mr. H got some chocolate covered strawberries from here. They are so good, but they only make them a few times a year. He likes them because they completely cover them in chocolate and the juices of the berries ferment in the chocolate shell. For dinner I ordered a heart shaped C.hicago style deep dish pizza and a brownie from M.angia P.izza. I had never eaten their pizza before, but I knew they made heart shapes for Valentine's Day and football shapes for S.uperbowl. It was good. Not the best, but good. It's was nice and cheesy (pardon the pun) and that's just how I wanted to spend my evening with the love of my life. We also watched L.icense T.o W.ed (lame, I don't recommend it, but it took my mind off things). All in all, I would say my evening was pleasant. How did you spend your evening?

That's such a cute picture of the two of you. Your evening sounded lovely.
We never really do anything for valentines. Seeing as it's my birthday the day after it's always been more of a focus than valentines.
I loved the heart shaped pizza, they just don't do stuff like that over here.

I love Mangia, but I prefer Double Daves. I completely agree with DH about the Lamme's strawberries. They are the only ones that are good.

DH got me roses on the 13th because he said he didn't want to stand in line on Valentine's Day. How romantic. I cooked a nice dinner and we stayed in. Do you remember our last V-Day? I think I told you about it. We went to Cool River because everyone kept saying how great it was. I made reservations. When I got there our table looked out onto the parking lot. How's that for a romantic meal. The meal was passable but with tip included was $100!!!

You would get a heart-shaped pizza!! You are so darn cute that way.

That's a really cute picture of the two of you! And that pizza looks great! I hope you had a great Valentine's Day!

Such a gorgeous photo of you two. And I love the idea of a heart shaped pizza. I don't think we can get those there.

We did nothing for v-day. Never do. But that's o.k.

If we lived closer to Man.gia, I would have thought about getting a heart-shaped pizza.
We stayed in - grilled steaks & shrimp, cooked some fresh green beans & then some chocolate treats from h.eb. Just a simple evening.

I love all the heart-related foods! We didn't do much, we just exchanged cards and, of course, the kiddos got gifts. We went out for a belated Valentine's dinner to Clay Pit on Friday. Yummy Indian food...mmmm.

Yum. The food looks amazing (you guys look amazing, too, of course). My v-day was quiet, nothing much went on. A certain pupster was my special valentine :-)
