Show Us Your Life - Valentines Dates or Ideas

I must say that last year's, 2009 Valentines Day was by far the BEST! This was the "first" Valentines Day that Josh and I got to spend together. In 2008 he was in Texas working over Valentines Day. So Valentines Day 2009 was extra special. We got engaged on August 1. 2008 and anxiously began planning for our wedding and purchasing things for our home. We made Valentines Day weekend a weekend for buying furniture for our house.

We kicked off the weekend by going to Mountain Grove, MO. with Mallory and Kody. Mallory had heard about Club 60. It was fantastic! We had a good food, good drinks, and LOTS of laughs that night. The next day Josh and I travelled to Springfield and began shopping for furniture. We had such a fun day! We ate dinner that night at Hinode. Our favorite Japanese Steak House. We spent the night and shopped a little more the following day! It was a fun weekend!

It has always been a tradition to bake some form of cupcakes on Valentines Day. Last year I made cherry chip cupcakes and this year I baked red velvet cupcakes. I made some deliveries to my family yesterday afternoon and have one more delivery to make today. I LOVE sharing yummy treats!

Tonight we are celebrating Valentines Day with Mallory and Kody. We are going to Cabool, MO. and having Mexican at one of my favorite places; El Imperial. I am sure it will be a great time.

Tomorrow Josh and I are just hanging low. We will exchange our gifts and have dinner with my family that evening at Coltons in WP.

Happy Valentines Day!!
