Happy Valentine's.... a little late

Well, I know I'm two days late posting about Valentine's but I thought better late than never, huh?

Neither Ben nor I are very big into Valentine's, but in the past we've usually done the whole dinner, flowers, cards, candy, gifts, etc. This year, with our Anniversary two weeks later we decided to keep it really simple.  We had plans to go to a friends for dinner and such, but I came home from work Monday and I was getting really sick. All I wanted to do was put on my pj's and lay on the couch.  Ben was super sweet and got take out for us for dinner - he tried to make it a little special, even as he forced Gatorade down my throat.

Since we were keeping things simple I had a few cards hiding around for Ben to find throughout the day, I made him cupcakes, and I gave him a book of coupons for things like "One night of uninterrupted control of the TV remote" etc...  I had great plans of making chocolate covered strawberries, but I only got as far as washing the strawberries before I had to go lay down. Sorry, honey!

Ben gave me a few cards (and even got one for me from Mosby!), some candy and he bought me this mirror I've been wanting for sometime - I love it so much and cannot wait to get it hung!

We got a few other valentine "happies" from our parents - we are so blessed! 

I'm sorry don't have any pictures of our day, I just didn't have it in me to grab the camera.  I hope you all had a very special love day :)
