Before I let another week go by, I wanted to share some pictures of Valentine's day! This is how I roll- posting about V-day 1 1/2 months later.
I bought the children and Carl some electric toothbrushes and a few little treats- nothing fancy, my kind of gifting. They seemed pleased, I was pleased, sweet. Carl and I also bought these awesome nesting bowls:
Carl was in school for most of the day, so after I came back from the gym, the kids and so dear friends came over to
|just a little cookie with the frosting|
I was very surprised. We have never left the kids with anybody but family! But we love these two sisters that frequently watch the kiddos and so I was at ease. It was one night only, anyway.
So we started by being foodies and trying some local fancy eats. Let me just add now that Carl and I are not fancy. We ordered steak tartare and were surprised to find a plate of raw ground steak looking back at us. Mooooooo it echoed as we tried a bite (only one bite for me). It was ok though, it made a delicious scramble in the morning (ha!)
We then drove to the Pfister, a fancy hotel and had some late night appetizers at the lounge while listening to a pianist serenade us with his beautiful tunes. In the morning, free in-room breakfast was provided, so we ordered everything. Salmon and a cream cheese bagel was one of the items, only the salmon was raw. What the heck is with fancy people and raw food?! Just cook your dang meats, ya crazies. No worries, I broiled it when I got home and had it with crackers.
|carl even took the time to make a slideshow of the last 6 years with our song (this magic moment by Jay and the Americans) playing in the background! This is my lame picture post-slideshow.|
