For over a year now I’ve had the kindest and funniest man in my life. As an extra bonus he is criminally good looking! As if that weren’t enough he apparently has a great talent for Valentine’s Day planning:
I was supposed to meet him at his house for a lovely home-cooked meal that evening. So I rush home after work to get dolled up and drive the 30 minutes to him. Little did I know he had set up camp at my apartment, set the table with candles and a dozen red roses and was getting ready to cook. Awwww! Super awesome surprise! I could not stop grinning! Extra bonus points for getting sparkling cider while I finish up a course of anti inflammatory meds and can’t drink. So thoughtful!!
I did get all dolled up, and then I relaxed watching him work in my kitchen. I don’t know about you but for me this definitely beats sitting elbow to elbow in a packed restaurants! While I was drooling at the sight of a hot man in my kitchen, the hotness whipped up a crazily delicious and most impressive meal of seared dry diver scallops with sauteed mushrooms on a bed of spinach. He had also thought of bread and a great salad and BAM, home-made chocolate covered strawberries and blood orange segments. Definitely a magical meal!
Toasted with our sparkling cider (sooo weird), ate the chocolate covered fruits, exchanged cards (one was from zee doggie :D) and some surprise lingerie for me *soooo spoiled* before we curled up on the sofa to watch Hotel Transilvania. Perfect evening!
Truth be told, I deserved it. Awesome girlfriend that I (hopefully) am, I had gotten him a Clay Matthews junior fat head for his future closet in my place. Yeah, Clay Matthews is in the closet. Go laugh.
Hope y’all’s Valentine’s Day was filled with love as well! XO
