Since you're all dying to know what we Westons did to celebrate Valentine's Day . . . I thought I'd share a few pictures. OK, so no one has even asked me about it, but it was a reason to post, so here 'tis:
Mark stayed home from work and was so sweet and went to the grocery store early in the morning to get chocolate milks for the girls and flowers and candy for me. Then he came home and made my favorite breakfast -- Nun's Puffs. And I know I'm horrible because I didn't appreciate it at the time! I had gone to bed late and Ivy woke up just as Mark was walking out the door to go shopping. And as I prefer sleep to a yummy breakfast any day, I was a little put out. Now if he had taken Ivy to the store with him and let me sleep, then I would have been on cloud nine! Picky, picky I know, but I am a monster without a good night's sleep! Sorry Mark!
Luckily my mood improved before our dinner date. We had reservations at The Iron Gate Grill and it was so good. Afterward we went to Hollywood Video and rented the romantic comedy "The Holiday" and came home and watched it on the projector screen. Yes I know it's not a new release, but it has taken me this long to rent it.
The above picture was taken right before our date. I made fun of Mark for the placement of his hand! But my hand looks pretty dumb too. I just wanted to show off my ring because Mark purposed to me with it 5 years ago on Valentine's Day :)
Mark's parent's had a little Valentine's party on Thursday. It was really fun. I love any reason to have a party! And Millie and Ivy thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
