Our Engaged Valentine's Day

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's day! 

As I was writing Brendan's card, I realized this is our 3rd Valentine's day to celebrate together. This was by far the best one yet. Our first year, we celebrated in Lake Charles. We picked a Risotto recipe and I didn't measure things right...3 hours later, I was very tipsy before dinner even started. Our second year, things were way more low key. We managed to make dinner in about 10 minutes. This year, Brendan had his night class, so I put dinner together. I made this meal and served it with salad and Prosecco. Delicious! 

Brendan brought home the pretty flowers. The store was all out of roses by the time his class ended, but I thought these were cute and fun! 

After dinner, we exchanged gifts and cards. I got Brendan a couple of sweaters and a card, and he made me the most beautiful card (I have to start finding a safe place to keep these) and got me a book and something else that's still on its way. 

Fun Fact: Brendan made the wrapping paper for my gift on the computer. 
Then, we delved into dessert. I had really wanted to make a chocolate pie, but I didn't plan ahead well enough, so I bought a very tiny strawberry cheesecake at the store and served it with fresh strawberries. 

After dessert, we watched Woody Allen's To Rome With Love, which was awesome until I fell asleep about halfway through. Someone had a little too much Prosecco...luckily, I can re-watch it again today!  

Can't believe it's already time for another weekend...we'll be seeing friends, grading papers, and hoping that Sunday is 72 degrees as promised. 

Happy weekend all!
