Valentine's Day

I hope everyone had a fantastic Valentine's Day! I hate people that bash on the day. Single or not, go give someone a hug, let them know what they mean to you. Even if it's a family member or pet! Don't be a Debbie Downer! haha. Mine was pretty good. I got to hang out with my monster all day since the Mr had to work. I slaved away in the kitchen as much as I could with Liam. Basically, that's where I was while he napped because otherwise he would get into everything. Let me tell you, I barely got to sit down. Every five seconds, Liam was crawling away, getting into something. I ended up making us homemade pizza for dinner (homemade crust and everything) as well as chocolate filled red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. However, those were not homemade. Although I wish they were! Both turned out pretty darn good.

Before dinner, I ended up giving Adam his gift when he got home. I know that typically, the women get spoiled, but I also wanted to show him how much I care for him. We both don't need one day to tell us that, but a little extra something is nice. Besides, it can be an excuse to pig out on sweets. I ended up making him a beer basket! Have you heard of World Market? That store is amazing! They have single bottle beers; smaller ones, that you can 'build your own six pack' with. I only got four, but I decorated the bottles to fit the type of beer. 'Ale for my favorite male' for a Stone IPA, ' you make my heart beat fast' for Turbodog ale, 'you warm my heart' for a winter ale, and 'you pick me up when i'm feeling blue' for Blue Heron. I thought they were pretty clever haha. Then I added things that you would have with beer. Hot wings flavored chips to knock out both chips and wings from a bar, candy, pretzels, gum (for the after), almonds (for the nuts)... just random stuff. I also added little notes to each, like his favorite was the one for the EXTRA gum because it said 'our love is long-lasting' haha. I also made him a card. I actually found it on pintrest and loved it so much, that I had to make it.

It took a little while, but this is what he got me for the day! A dozen long stemmed red roses! I have never gotten a dozen roses, so of course I love them. The bear is super soft and cute as well. My favorite part has to be the awesome vase! I need to figure out what to do with it once the roses are gone. They are already starting to smell strong! I walked by this morning and they smelled amazing. I'm lucky to have such an amazing husband.

Did you have a good day? Did you celebrate Valentines Day or was it just like any other day? Please share!
