Valentine's Day 2011

This year's Valentine's Day was very meaningful to me. For starters, it's the first one that F and I have been married for. Second, it's the first one we have been together for. The Air Force has this way of ensuring we're never together for Valentine's Day but, this year, we won that battle and were finally together for the "holiday of love". It was definitely a memorable evening. After F got out of work, I "kidnapped" him and took him to Longhorn Steakhouse as his gift from me. He was really excited and LOVED his steak! I definitely know the way to that boy's heart. The meal started with a "Texas Tonion" as an appetizer, thanks to my coupon for a free appetizer.

After the appetizer, we each had a Caesar salad that may have been one of the best ones I've ever had. For the main course, we each had some variation of steak. F had a big, juicy Porterhouse that was a whopping 22oz! It was served with a good sized baked potato. As for me, I enjoyed a 7oz filet stuffed with crab and topped with crab, spinach, and a delicious sauce. All served with a large baked sweet potato with butter and cinnamon. Needless to say, we both left with takeout boxes!

Originally the "kidnapping" also included a trip to Coldstone but we both agreed we were way too stuffed so Coldstone will have to happen another time. Once we got home, F surprised me with a really funny yet cute card and an adorable stuffed puppy I have since named Nugget. F had agreed to pay for my wedding photobook I'm having made on Shutterfly as my Valentine's Day gift so getting something yesterday was quite the surprise!

It was a fantastic Valentine's Day and a true reminder of just how lucky I am to have such an amazing husband. I couldn't have asked for a better first Valentine's Day together. :)


  1. I'm glad you had a great Valentine's Day! That food looks so delicious!

  2. Sounds like you had a great 1st Valentine's Day as a married couple!
