Valentines Day 2011

J and I typically don't do a lot on Valentines Day. As I posted on Facebook this morning, he is my Valentine EVERY DAY. Not just Feb. 14. Although I think it's a good time to reflect on the love, that should be done several times throughout the year!

With that being said, we decided to be very low key this year. There is a fabulous little restaurant a few towns over that we've heard so many great things about, but it's a bit pricier than anything we'd usually have. It's actually an old bank, and you can sit in the vault! J had actually considered proposing to me there, but he chose the beach instead. And I'm OK with that :)

Anyhow, we thought it would be fun to splurge a bit on dinner and just get dressed up and go somewhere really nice, where we actually needed a reservation. 

And boy, was it nice. I can't remember the last time I've been so full! The steak (we ordered NY strip) practically melted in your mouth. Even the salad (I ordered sundried tomato basil vinaigrette dressing) was fab! We also had the "Baked Alaska" for dessert (and we never order dessert!) I didn't want to look silly taking pictures of my food, but it's described as "thin layers of a rich chocolate cake between vanilla ice cream, then covered with meringue and baked briefly." Yum!

After we finished, we stopped to pick up some beer to take home (classy, I know) then went home, changed clothes (you know I love my pajama pants!) and watched movies. It was a great night!

We're both feeling a bit under the weather today, so I plan to pick up a Papa Murphy's heart-shaped pizza and we'll just chill on the couch and laugh at all of our favorite CBS comedies. 

Hope you all have a great day of love as well!


  1. Sounds like ya'll had a nice time! I'm going to have to try Papa Murphy's pizza - I hear about them all the time and I love me some pizza!! :)
