The hoopla over Valentine's Day never ceases to annoy me (who in the world do those Kay's commercials work on?) but, as usual, ours was lovely. We have celebrated 16 or 17 of them together now and Matt well knows that overpriced flowers are NOT my thing. Even though I honestly have no expectations for the day, he always seems to do a little something to make it special. This year we grilled steaks and ate them with homemade potato chips. On his way home from work Matt also swung by the grocery store for chocolate-mousse ingredients and some other goodies.
Matt: "I was wondering if I'd get some looks from cashiers, buying flowers, champagne and whipped cream."
Me: "Haha! So did you?"
Matt: "I did self-checkout."
Unrelated: The new house is looking so fantastic. I don't usually get attached to houses, for obvious reasons, but this one is something special. I keep taking pictures but none of them have made it to the blog because by the time I get them off my camera they're already outdated. I will most definitely get some good ones in the next couple of weeks and post them here. Here are some pictures of the two vintage chandeliers I painted:
