We had such a great Valentine’s Day with our little family. We decided this year we wanted to celebrate with Lucy since she’s our little Valentine. We were going to go out to dinner Friday after work but because of the snow storm that hit our area, the roads were bad so restaurants were closing and we wanted to get home before the temperature dropped even lower making the roads even icier.
On Saturday night, we headed out to Antonino’s, a local Italian restaurant. The food was OK but wasn’t great. I definitely wish we had gone to our old favorite, Armando’s! When we were shown to our table, everyone in our section looked at us and you could tell they were apprehensive of us bringing a baby. However, Lucy was perfectly quiet the entire time. I was so proud of her! One funny note about this restaurant — it takes reservations and looks like a very nice restaurant, yet the tables are covered with plastic table cloths and the napkins are paper! I find that amusing.
Joe had to work all day on Valentine’s Day as manager on duty at the museum. Lucy and I visited him for lunch, and when he got home we exchanged small Valentine’s as his present from me has yet to be delivered. He got me yummy Hershey’s Pot of Gold mixed chocolates and a cute teddy bear, and I got him TWILIGHT candy hearts. I’m the best.wife.evar. Joe is now on Team Jasper. 🙂
Today, Joe gave me my actual present which he didn’t have yesterday since I decided at the last minute that I didn’t want what I had originally asked for. He got me a charm with Lucy’s birthstone. I *love* it. It’s something I’ve wanted, and he wanted to get it for me when Lucy was born but it wasn’t really possible since we didn’t know if she would come in November or December.
We also got Lucy her first Valentine’s card from us. She really didn’t care, but it’ll be good to put in her scrapbook.
We had a great Valentine’s this year, but next year we’ll probably be getting a babysitter. How about you? What did you do for Valentine’s Day?
