Valentine's Day Re-Cap

I've embraced my inner sappy.  I still hate romantic-comedy movies.  But that's beside the point.

Valentine's Day this year was lovely and all of a sudden I can't remember what we did last year.  At all.  I'm guessing since 'The Kid' was two months old we didn't do much.  Even 'The Man' can't remember, and that dude remembers EVERYTHING.

Wow, getting back to the point.  THIS year 'The Man' and I went to dinner.  Very original and adventurous.  Really a departure.

We started out at Sheila's Wine Bar.  They have excellent food.  I mean, EXCELLENT.  I'm not talking about, 'oh this is really the only decent place in town' type excellent.  I'm talking about, I've never found anything remotely close to as good as this place.  Anywhere.  I may not remember much, but I tell you what I'm still dreaming about their Arugula Soup.  That I had LAST year.

Sadly they had a special menu for Valentine's that included the hefty charge of $49.95 per plate AND wine.  Tempting!  And I was so looking forward to eating there.  

So we drove to Brendan's Irish Pub.  (Must've had booze on the brain).  We heard good things.  From my parents.  Which really isn't saying a whole lot since the previous tenants of that venue was Sizzler and my Dad LOVED it.  Hm.  Anyway, we tried.  But Meat and Potatoes I'm a little over.

We then drove to Peking Inn.  This place has been in town FOR-EV-ER.  And nothing says Happy Valentine's Day like Chinese food.  I couldn't find a link, but what I could find was this.

So 'The Man' and I exchanged our Valentine's Day cards in the card.  (I was too embarrassed to bring them into the restaurant).

After we got home 'The Man' and I exchanged some more Valentine's Day goodness.  Here's the pictures.

Cookies!  The MB actually beat me to it this year.  But we all got one.  

Something different.  I think I'm the only one who's been eating them so far.  They're loss is my gain.

The Cards.  'The Kid' even got one.  I'm such a bad Mom.  I didn't make him one.  Next year...I promise!
'The Man' and I had Martinelli's and Strawberries in bed while we watched the Adjustment Bureau.  (And stuff). We are the World's Most Boring Couple.  But you know what?  It was a perfect night.  Cheers!
