Valentine's Day Celebrations

We had such a great time celebrating Valentine's day this year that I might become a Valentine's Day lover :). Ok, let's not get too excited. Hubby's parents volunteered to watch the boys so that we could enjoy some alone grown up time and we jumped at the idea. It is so nice to get dressed up, put some make up on and just feel grown up. Hubby on the other hand doesn't believe in dressing up but he is still pretty cool.

Before we left we of course took a few pictures, that's what I do best. Me and my love on Valentine's day ready to go out.
On our way to the restaurant we started joking about how happy and excited we were for going on a real date in like forever so I asked hubby to do his best happy smiling face and this is what I got. My hubby I tell you.
Car selfies are awesome. This is more like him, his normal face with a smile and no teeth. This year we celebrate 10 years since we met and 6 years of marriage. Insanely good I tell you
We had a 4-course meal at the Melting Pot, my favorite restaurant. You have to cook your own food fondu style so it's an entertaining meal. They had a rose waiting for me when we got there, how sweet. We started the first course, a cheese fondu. I love me some apple with cheese and of course my first baby ;).
The second course was a caesar salad followed by the third course a variety of awesome meat. Hubby does not look impressed but it was delicious.
The fourth course was the chocolate which is my favorite. Hubby loves the chocolate too :)
Dinner was delicious. They even brought champagne so that we could have a toast. The Melting Pot's Valentine's dinner was the perfect way to celebrate this year
They even took a picture of us and framed it. My kind of nice touch. After lunch we came home to the kids chilling and relaxing with their grandparents. It was such a nice date for hubby and I. We need to do these more often :). Hope you had a great time celebrating this weekend too.

PS - As I sit here writing this post on a super duper chilly holiday Monday, I can't help but be content and grateful for my family. Hubby is at work, my feet are up, Bean is napping, Tman and Jbird are watching the Penguins of Madagascar. Life is good.
