Our fun Valentine's Day weekend
Ok, so I know Valentine's Day was almost a week ago, but I decided that it was worth posting about. (Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures, so you'll have to use your imagination). Bill and I decided that, instead of only celebrating on one day, we would spread it out over the whole weekend. On Thursday, since Bill had an evening class, I was in charge of the festivities that day. I made what we call a chicken bundle, which is chicken, broccoli, and cheese wrapped in crescent rolls. In honor of the day, I tried to make it heart-shaped. It was slightly lop-sided, but very tasty. I also made a green salad with heart-shaped cheese, ham, and tomato slices. Sounds cheesy, I know, but Bill was impressed, and we got to spend a little alone time together that night. Friday was Bill's day, so he got up early with Will that morning and let me sleep in, then surprised me with breakfast in bed. Later that night he made a really good dinner with teriyaki-marinated turkey, baked potatoes, and mint chocolate chip ice cream. Saturday was the final day of celebrating, and probably my favorite. We were able to get a baby-sitter for the night, so we went to Chili's for dinner. Bill also surprised me again by giving me a dozen red roses. It was a wonderful weekend with some great memories. I can't wait to see what next year will bring!
