Be Mine

     So, I've been training someone at work since last week which is the reason for my lack of blogging! But, alas, I am back! Happy belated Valentine's Day to everyone! I hope it was a fabulous day! I had a nice evening with the hubby getting dinner at Spice Modern Steakhouse downtown. We had never been there and had a really good time. The food was very food and the atmosphere was intimate. I didn't think about taking pictures until after we had left the restaurant!....Rookie mistake! ; )
     After seeing people post things about Valentine's Day on their Facebook page, I got to thinkin....If you would have asked me how I felt about Valentine's Day a couple of years ago, my answer would have been much different than it is today! While I enjoy getting flowers and eating at nice restaurants, I just feel that the "holiday" is very overdone. I really don't care to get a heart shaped box of Russell Stover chocolate- I mean really, does anyone actually like the way they taste? However, Godiva is a totally different story. I will ALWAYS welcome some Godiva (My thighs....not so much). The point is, so much money gets spent celebrating one day of "love" when I feel like we should be expressing this kind of appreciation for one another year round. I think Valentine's Day meant more to me before I got married because I didn't have an anniversary to celebrate. Now that I'm married, I'd rather focus all the extravagant hooplah towards my anniversary. While I did enjoy my evening out, I would have been content with a homemade candle lit dinner and a bottle of wine. Maybe next year we'll start a new tradition!

     My parents are coming into town this weekend for President's Day and I'm really hoping that they bring the wine glasses! If so, it's on like donkey kong!!
