|Out to dinner|
|My lasagna was delicious. I had warm bread and sparking wine with it.|
We were in the car on our way to dinner and I mentioned that the street corner flower/balloon booths were already setting up shop to cash in on Valentine's Day. "I hate Valentine's Day." Those were the exact words that came out of my husband's mouth. I immediately slammed on the breaks and pulled over to the side of the road and told him we would not be going any further unless he took it back because I can't be married to someone who hates Valentine's Day and we 'aint gettin' a divorce. We never made it to dinner. Okay totally joking!!! It is true that my husband hates Valentine's Day but I'm okay with that as long as he indulges my girly romantic side at least a little bit. I don't expect nor do I want a big to do about Valentine's Day but a little somethin' somethin' is nice. Tuesday is really not the best day to celebrate anything so we were headed out to dinner on Sunday at Il Postino's; this cute little Italian restaurant Mj had been wanting to try.
That morning at work I got a very special delivery of of giant monster sized iced sugar cookies and balloons. Oh, how I love these cookies. I like flowers but they die and I can't eat them. I got him a nice 90 minute massage using good old Groupon which I know he can really use right now because he's been working out almost every day.
Valentine's day dinner was Cabbage and Rice with Turkey Sausage. It's good and all but not exactly my idea of a "special" dinner. It's something I know how to make and we already had the meat so I went with it. I haven't been in the kitchen much so I think it was a nice treat that I cooked for him even if it was just something simple. It was actually pretty tasty but not even close to what Mj made for dinner last year on Valentine's Day. After dinner we chilled out on the couch and watched Teen Mom 2 and then I worked on our budget. I know....way romantic.
It's a fake commercial holiday with no historical significance whatsoever made up so that people can make money. There is no point of making one day to express love when you can do it all year long or on a day that actually has some real meaning like an anniversary. Blah, Blah, blah. I get it and even agree to some extent but I still have a soft spot for February 14th. My husband hates Valentine's Day but he loves me! So it works.
