I hope you all had a good Valentine's Day. Mine was great from start to finish. May I tell you about it?

Friday I left work early to run some errands and came straight to C's house, where these treats were waiting for me:A dozen coral-yellow-red roses and a cookie cake. The weekend was off to a great start.

I had to finish getting some items for his gift box on Saturday, and while scouring Target I found the best bargain of them all -- Troop Beverly Hills on DVD. And then I went home and immediately watched it one full time... and hit play again while I was waiting on C to pick me up.

For dinner, we tried a place close to his home that we'd never been to before. It was interesting. They were out of a lot of things (lettuce, ribs, thin crust pizzas) but the restaurant was not crowded at all, even though our waitress SueAnn said they had been "slammed." So we think she was either lying to us or that restaurant is insanely popular with the blue-haired crowd.

The funniest two parts of the night were when the manager stopped by to clear our salad plates and noticed a pile of unwanted bell peppers on C's plate. He stared at the plate. "Where'd those bell peppers come from?" he asked us. "What?" "I said where did those bell peppers come from?" "Uh, they were on the salad." (Exasperated, annoyed sigh) "Lemme guess... you have SueAnn." Of course at that statement my interest was heavily piqued but he never came back for me to ask where the bell peppers or SueAnn had gone wrong. The other funny part was when C asked for some parmesan cheese for his fettuccine, and SueAnn brought him a can of Kraft shredded parmesan cheese. Like, straight from the grocery store. Maybe you had to be there, but I couldn't stop giggling after that.

Feeling the need to reclaim our sophistication, we went across town to a trendy restaurant for drinks and dessert. We were blown away. We each had a glass of wine and a dessert - I went for the evening's special, a trio of a cup of espresso/dark chocolate, two small naan donut holes coated in cinnamon sugar and an almond and chocolate ice cream sandwich. C went for the tres leches - a cake soaked with three milks. We were beyond pleased with everything about our dessert. C's favorite part was easily when I sat on his side of the booth to take a picture and then wouldn't go back to my side. His face may have said "get back in your seat" but I know his heart was most definitely saying otherwise.

From there, we decided to hop again and went to one of my favorite places in Nashville that I never, ever get to go to: Union Station. There is an intimate little bar in the hotel lobby so we went there for a final toddy. It was a special conclusion to a great evening.

Based on the company I was in and the fun that we had, this was hands down my best Valentine's Day ever. And no, we did not plan to dress just alike.


  1. Very cute. Are you growing your hair out?

  2. great pic...i would have to agree with C - cant have two sitting on the same side of the booth. it totally weirds me out.
