our valentine's // in pictures...


You guys, I think it's safe to say this was the best Valentine's Day yet!

Bill and I enjoyed a three day weekend filled with time together and friends! Gaw, it was the best! One day we walked around in the sunshine and spotted awesome thrift stores, one day we had an amazing lunch, and on actual V-Day we ended up giving each other some very "true to us" fun pressies. Bill received some comics (he got the next few "Walking Dead" comics he was in need of. What says, "I love you" more than Zombie comics?) and the most amazing cookies from The Baked Equation (ever!) My friend Melissa, does cookies right, guys! He got 2 decorated cookies with a sort of theme we've always had AND 6 salted butterscotch shortbread! YUM! Our favorite from her!

I received a plethora of amazing baking and cooking yummies that I always thought were "too pricey to just buy myself"! HA! He's the best!

Also gifted was a vintage Hallmark Valentine card by the talented Jess Vartanian! Love supporting my friends!

Then, to top it off, we had night with friends watching the best Valentine's Day movie ever- Pacific Rim. The night was packed with more food (and one of the best desserts I've had in a while by a fellow baker friend), laughs, a 5 pound bag of Gummi Bears, and about 13,000 different types of gourmet popcorn! Yum!

I mean, that's what the day is all about anyway- Love. I think, we captured it at it's best with all the different forms!

How was your day??

    1. Hehehe ok hear me out. I DID. The first time I saw it...in the theater. I went in with REALLY low expectations and was actually pretty pleasantly surprised! But then Bill loved it so much more than me. SO he saw it a second time, needed the Blu-Ray, talked about it nonstop, that it got hyped up in my head. So when we watched it (his third time, my second) on Valentine's Day, I was a tad disappointed. Hahaha. BUT it was a fun movie to watch with friends, and yell at, and talk through, and go "OoOooo that wouldn't happen in real life, etc"... Hahaha. Have you seen it?
