valentines day and our night on the town

so ive pretty much decided that valentines day is NOT my holiday! it seems like SOMETHING happens every year. rick did get me some beautiful flowers that he arranged all by himself which makes me love them all the more! and sophia and i made him some goodies. and i made the girls a fancy valentines breakfast. but it does seem like every other year one of us is sick, or one of the kids, and one year rick even had his work truck broken into and all his tools stolen! well, this year was pretty much the same as all the previous years. ricks teeth were killing him so he had to work and then go to the dentist all day. by the time he got home from all that he was tired and not feeling well and i had been cleaning house all day and was pooped. so we decided to wait until the following weekend when we werent tired and it wasnt going to be insanely busy anywhere we went and go out then instead. so we went out the next weekend with our friends brad and allie and my sister justyn and dan to ruths chris. i insisted that everyone get dressed up because i love to get dressed up and never really get the chance (sorry brad!)! dinner was great and we had a lot of fun. we walked around downtown after dinner and then went and got dessert at a place called heavenly desserts which was very tasty! it was nice because everywhere we went wasnt too busy so we all decided this was the way to do it, go out the weekend AFTER valetines! so we had fun and i cant wait to do it again!

My goodness. Those flowers are gorgeous! Rick made you those cookies? unbelievable.

I sure am glad we don't live there, cause I definitely know my husband would not be able to dress up to par with those studdly men! Looks like fun though!!

ps- maybe I'll go shopping for a nice black sweater for him sometime. then we can move back!

You all look so coordinated. Did you plan it that way? How fun. Eric & I were going to go to Ruths Chris for Valentine's Day, but we ended up going to The Prado at Balboa Park. I like Ruths Chris better I decided. Anyway, that's fun & you have a very sweet husband for arranging those flowers for you. Love you guys!
