My Love Day


Even though my Valentine's Day didn't really start till about 6 in the evening, it was pretty great.  Of course, I didn't bother taking any pictures but that's okay, right?

Dustin and I had dinner at Flame.  I have never seen that place so busy.  I didn't think to make reservations, which probably was a good thing since Dustin got stuck at work.  We had a bit of a wait but hung out at the bar so it was all good.  Dinner, of course, was fantastic.  I've never had a bad meal there or bad service for that matter.  For anyone in Minnesota or if you're ever in the area, I would definitely recommend Flame in Roseville, MN.  Fantastic.

Flame is attached to a mall so after dinner we walked around the mall till my poor feet, which were in heels, began to complain.  I don't know how anyone can stand to be in heels for more than, oh, an hour, hehe.  Definitely not for me!

We only exchanged cards and Dustin was a stinker and got me the movie She's Out of My League as well.  We rented it from Redbox awhile ago and I couldn't stop raving about it, so he got it for me.

Tuesday morning we ended up waking up early after some early morning cuddling and watched the movie cuddled up on the couch.  Then we made pancakes, sausage and eggs for breakfast which was AMAZING.  Then we went back to bed for the rest of the day.  Perfect day.

The rest of my week is going to be kind of nuts.  This is my work schedule:

Today: 7 to 1
Thursday: 8:30 to 3
Friday: 5 to 9
Saturday: Expo 9 to 1
Sunday: 9 to 3

Yuck.  May not seem like much, not a single 8 hour day, but those hours definitely seem longer when you're on your feet the whole time and running around.  In between this I have homework to do and housecleaning.  Does it ever end?

Happy Wednesday all!

Sounds like a wonderful time with you guy! I looked up the restaurant & saw that it's right outside of Minneapolis! I didn't realize you lived so close! That's a city on my "list of places to check out"!

Urgh- that's the worse. Your feet don't get to recover from the day before. Sorry!


sounds like an absolutely perfect V-day!

So glad to be back in the blog world... missed you :)


I'm glad you had a great dinner with your hunny and then got to relax the next day!


Wow that is quite the work week!

Sounds like a great night and I don't know how people do it either - seriously, how do people walk around in heels? ouch.

I haven't seen that movie yet, I'll have to rent it. Glad you had a great day!


If it'd be bored! Sounds like a fun vday!


Aw, sounds like the perfect day! I also can't stand to be in heels for very long. My heels feel like needles are poking into them after just a few hours.

Perfect V-day! :)
Sorry you have to work so much. Will be thinking of you. And yes, some day you'll look back and say "I did that, and it was nothing compared to what I'm doing now!" lol ;) Helpful? I don't know.

Have a great day.


AW that seems like the perfect day to me!
I'm feeling your work schedule pain, a the moment i'm feeling like i'm doing a full time job but in part time hour, and my boss is doing my NUT in! x

Amber Blue Bird

what a great way to spend an evening and morning...cuddling is the best.


I'm so glad you were able to spend some time together! And you make me wish we had gone out to dinner somewhere we don't eat at frequently.
Your schedule is definitely stinky! Mine's kind of similar 8:30-5 Tues-Thurs 8:30-10pm Friday and 10:15-4 Saturday. Which, of course, is worse cause I'm on my feet!
Good luck this week, may you be blessed with big tippers!


Now that's how you celebrate Valentine's Day! XX

Chic 'n Cheap Living

Aww sounds like you had a great time and how sweet that he remembered that you liked the movie!

Those hours sound rough. Have you considered Fit Flop sandals (I love these) or maybe a not so bleh model of Crocs? At least your feet may feel better!


Aww, this sounds like a beautiful Valentine's day! Especially the cuddling and eating breakfast together part--adorable!!


That's a fun Valentine's Day! I love A League of Their Own! Good luck with your work week!


Sounds like a perfect valentines day!


Connie @ SogniESorrisi

Sounds great! I wish we could have a stay-in-bed-all-day kind of day but we haven't had one of those in literally forever. Hopefully soon things will start slowing down for us.


I could eat pancakes for every meal, everyday. And have chilled out, relaxing days at home. Now, I just need to find someone willing to pay me to do that -LOL!

Good luck with homework and housecleaning!


Sounds like a great night! I'm with you on wearing high heels for too long - it's rough.


what a lovely day!

Together We Save
