Valentine's Day

Our anniversary(and Valentine's Day) turned out to be a wonderful day.

It started with lunch with my Dad, then it was home for a relaxing afternoon at home with Joe. We continued our tradition of staying in to avoid the crowds that were out to celebrate Valentine's Day.

We plan on going out to dinner tomorrow and avoid the all the people  just like we did last year.

I'm big on holidays around here, and love to decorate.

Here are a few of the Valentine's decorations I have around the house.

I decorate our chandelier for every holiday. Valentine's is one of my favorites.

I got this at Koh.l's for 6o% off. It was like $4.00. So cute! Reminds me of our little ch-wiener dog in her striped sweater.
Got this sign at Khol's too. I never buy anything there that isn't on sale. The neighbors must think I am nuts because every month I am having Joe stand on our front porch and take my picture!

Joe brought me a balloon and flowers at work yesterday

Last night when I got home from work Joe wasn't there. I tried calling him on his cell phone but he didn't answer. A few minutes later he came home carrying this bag:

I was quite surprised and a little bit upset, as we had agreed that we were not going to exchange gifts this year. I quickly got over that :) and opened it up to find this:

I had a credit at the Bright.on store from a birthday present I returned last year, so he used it to buy me this watch. It's beautiful and I love it!

But I didn't get him anything :( He said it was O.K.
Since we decided not to go out, I made a homemade pizza and shaped it into a heart. It turned out good and was so yummy!

Then we broke out the Christmas gift Joe's parents got us(a fondue pot) and dipped all kinds of yummy things into the chocolate. Yum!
We watched a movie and then Joe had to go to work because he forgot to ask for it off.
Aside from that it was a perfect night!

I added this photo just because she looks so cute all wrapped up in the blanket.

And this one's just for fun. My cat sometimes sticks her tongue out and forgets that it's out. Sometimes she'll sit like this for a half an hour. Strange!
How was your Valentine's Day?

I am so glad you had a wonderful day. That Joe sounds pretty special.

We stayed in too! We ordered fish and chips. We exchanged some presents and I made cookies.

I love, love, LOVE your "Kisses" plaque featuring the little, well-clad, noble dog!

Your pup looks like a very nice fellow. I'm not sure about that cat, though...she might have distemper or something...I haven't met very many cats with nice tempers, at all!
