Valentine's Day (a few days later)

Dave and I got all dressed up on Saturday evening and went to a ball/benefit for a university that Dave is doing some expansion on. It was a wonderful evening, and since we were tied up all the other evenings, it became our valentine's date!

Brittany watched the boys, and she took a picture right before we left. It was fun to have an excuse to get dressed up!


Dinner was fancy...salad with sugar nuts, blueberries, and blue cheese, prime rib, giant shrimp, mashed potatoes, and a shredded zucchini/squash mix. So yummy! Dessert was flourless chocolate cake or cheesecake. I went for the chocolate. :)

Speaking of Valentine's, Dave surprised me with having roses delivered this year! They came complete with a card and poem from....Eric? Who is he????

Whoever he is, he is quite romantic! Dave and I got a good laugh out of that one. :)


Thanks for 5 1/2 great years, honey! Love you!

Very pretty dress!

Also, I don't get it. Was it a poem that Dave wrote, but they signed Eric on accident? Or did Dave not write the poem at all?

Apparently Eric wrote it. :)

I bet Eric was upset when his significant other didn't thank him for the poem!

It's nice when a great date doesn't come with a big tab!
