This weekend we celebrated our first Valentine's Day as a married couple. Friday night we have our ICF homegroup, so we spent that with our international student friends at Bible Study. Couldn't think of a better way to spend the evening!
Luckily on Saturday we had absolutely no plans. Which never happens on a weekend. So we decided to have a day just us.
I start by making breakfast of our favorite biscuits and gravy casserole and some cinnamon rolls
Then we exchanged a few gifts.
David gave me the Pampered Chef Manual Food Processor. I first saw this at a party we went to last fall and I decided I really wanted it. So my sweet guy bought it for me all on his own :)
I had given David 14 days of Valentine's treats starting February 1. They were little gifts with really cheesy notes to go with them such as the ones below:
And for his Valentine's gift I found an idea to do a years worth of sports themed dates and modified it a little to fit our interests. He got this invitation and February's date card for Valentine's Day and then there are 11 more envelopes to open--1 in each of the coming months between now and next January. It was a fairly simple thing to put together--but one that I think we will both really enjoy
(I'll definitely post about our dates as we go, so stay tuned!)
Then we headed to lunch at Outback for their Valentine's special--appetizer, steaks and dessert for two. Yum!
It was a perfect day with my love :)
