Valentine's Day

I'm doing pretty good here, posting more than once a week. Maybe this will help me get to 200 posts a lot faster than it has taken me to 100 post. Only 1 more after this and I am at 100. I'm pretty stoked about that.

So I figured that while I am waiting a little bit to post my news I figured I would do my Valentine's day post. I like Valentine's day, not a ton, but I'm not a hater. I don't like it when people hate on Valentine's day. Don't hate, yo. haha...

I asked Hal to plan something for Valentine's day so he would know my expectation (is that good communication, or what?), and boy, he didn't disappoint. We had such a fantastic weekend. He told me that we couldn't plan anything from Friday night on. We left the house on Friday and headed towards downtown. We ended up at the movie theatre and he kept talking about "Book of Eli", but wouldn't let me see what movie we were seeing, not even the screen outside the theatre. I didn't know what it was until it started. I was so excited though, it was what I wanted to see, Valentine's Day. Loved it, I loved it lots. It was really cute.

After that he took me to a place I love to eat. I know this may seem lame because it's a chain, but I love Noodles and Company. I love it lots and was excited he took me out. The picture below is at NOCO

I'm telling you, he didn't disappoint. He was so sweet and really put a lot of effort into the weekend. On Saturday we went over to his parents and made chocolate covered fruit. We made our own Edible Arragenment. He put it together and arranged it in a vase to be my bouquet. I love love flowers, but this was absolutely adorable. He bought me a rose later in the day so I got the best of both worlds.
While we were eating strawberries over at his parents his dad wanted to show us a T.V. show about how they harvest cashews. It was in Thailand and so we were all craving Thai food, so the 4 of us went to this new yummy place in the 9th and 9th area downtown. It was really yummy and we had such a good time. I love going out to dinner with his family, they're so adventerous.

I had a fun idea of something I really wanted to do when Hal told me we would be making chocolate covered strawberries. Wouldn't it be amazing if
weI made homemade valentines and we gave some strawberries to some people who don't usually get them? I have really felt the intuition to do service a lot lately. We delivered them to some poeple close to us. I think we surprised some of them because we ended coming kind of late since we went out to dinner. I just wish that we had had enough time to give them to more people.

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend weather you were celebrating or not. What did you do? Anything exciting? Any good ideas for next valentines?

P.S. I could just hear Hal talking in his sleep over the tv in another room. He is currently sleeping sideways on the bed. He was so tired tonight that he just crashed where he laid down.

We did chocolate-covered strawberries too. Your idea of sitting them up inside a rack is brilliant...much better than wax paper.

I think Noodles and Company sounds delicious for Valentine's Day!
