Weekend: Valentines 2015

I think this is the first time Rob and I have celebrated the actual day of Valentines together. This was our fifth valentines to be together, but on the day of we have always either been in different cities or it has been game day for Roberto. So to celebrate Valentines on the actual day together was pretty fun and such a treat!

On Friday, we went to the movies and saw Into the Woods, it was ok but definitely not our favorite. Then on Saturday, Rob had practice, I worked out and then we came home for a nap (priorities first) and then to celebrate!


This year, we decided it would be great to celebrate by cooking dinner together. And it was wonderful. We listened to Michael Buble radio and cooked the night away. We made steaks (using this recipe), baked potatoes, the best salad ever and homemade biscuits...and it was all so good, we were pretty dang proud of ourselves!



 Here in Poland, there is no such thing as canned biscuits. So when the husband's only request was biscuits, I knew it had to be homemade. And? They were so, so easy and so, so good. Recipe here.



We followed dinner with a V-Day must-chocolate covered strawberries made by the husband and my all time favorite... Dirty Dancing. What better day to ask the hubby to watch the most and best girly movie ever? He's a keeper!



I am a firm believer in spreading the love all year around. Striving to love others daily, the way God loves each of us...with such a great, indescribable and even undeserving love. But I also love Valentines. I think it is fun, whether your are celebrating with your significant other, your gal pals or your family. It is the perfect way to focus on loving those around you just a little extra...making them feel extra special.

And this man sure makes me feel special. My love for him just contiues to grow. He amazes me daily with the way he loves and lives. I am just so grateful to be his wife.

So basically? It was a great V-day! Then on Sunday we ate way too much of our leftover chocolate and binged on Parenthood (which I am currently way too obsessed with).

It was a great weekend celebrating with my love! How was your weekend?

  2. YAY! I'm so glad y'all were able to celebrate together this year! I'm sooo with your philosophy, too. There are way too many women that put so much pressure on their men this time of year and it's so silly. Especially when they don't even TELL them what they expect, men aren't mind readers. I love the random everyday flowers more than flowers on VDAY, but I also love love and sharing the love with those I care about on Vday.

    Your meal looks amazingly delicious! Love homemade biscuits! Have a great day!

  10. That meal looks amazing! And I lovvvve chocolate covered strawberries. Yum! My Valentine's Day was fun and celebrated early on Friday. My boyfriend and I went to dinner and then got a few drinks. Nothing too crazy, but it was wonderful spending some time with just him before he left for a week to Mexico!
