Valentines Day

I don’t typically do this but I was in the mood for photo posting today so that’s primarily what this entry will be.

It’s Valentine’s Day and Sean being the romantic he is typically doesn’t make a big deal out of things, publicly. We discussed what was going to happen this year and based on finances we decided that spending a quiet evening at home is the route we’re going to take. So tonight I’m going to be making dinner, and last night I went bake-happy and made cupcakes with cute little hearts on them and dual-flavor icing just to keep it interesting. Two dozen very quickly disappeared and that’s only because 12 of them went to work with Karen this morning for the guys in the warehouse, one is a sugar fanatic and wants them at any chance that he can get. I also snapped a few picks of the cupcakes last night, they really did turn out pretty cute.

Then of course there’s the extreme sweetness of Sean.

So as you can tell by the first image, I woke up to a very sweet gesture from Sean. The bag was filled with all kinds of sweet goodies. A dancing dog, I ♥ U milk chocolate, a singing rose and a very sweet card that almost brought me to tears. I wasn’t expecting this, I will say that. I figured we’d just have a quiet evening at home and he’d give me a card or something, considering that’s where I’d lost him in the store yesterday. I feel kind of bad though, I only got him a box of chocolate and a card. Yet, at the same time, I’ve also made him cupcakes, and I’m doing a pretty big spread with dinner tonight so when it comes down to it I think we’re basically even on this.

In any event, I’d like to wish all of you a Happy Valentines day, I hope you’re able to spend a wonderful day with your loved-ones.
