Happy Valentines Day!

This is our first Valentines Day as an engaged couple! :) We don’t have a huge Valentines Day planned this year – mostly in part because I’m working a late shift on what would have normally been a day off, lol. But also because we feel there are enough occasions throughout the year where we celebrate and get each other gifts, that it’s really not the end of the world if we don’t do anything crazy on Feb. 14. Also because we’re really, really broke this month, lol. But lastly because there isn’t just one day that we show each other we love one another! :)

I Choo Choo Choose You!

Normally on anniversary/love-type occasions we eat at Mt. Fuji, one of our favourite Japanese restaurants and also the restaurant we went to on our first date. Since I am working on the south side (and Mt. Fuji is north side) and we didn’t want to spend any money, we are planning on going to The Mongolie Grill because we had bought a Groupon to there awhile back that we’d yet to use! (We also think Mongolie Grill is yummy, hence our purchase of the Groupon lol).

This morning Mike surprised me with a balloon and tulips in a flower pot!

The Only One For Me!!

I always tell him I don’t like flowers because they just die anyway (waste of money!) but secretly still like to get some occasionally, lol. He went the I-can-take-care-of-this-one-and-keep-it-alive-for-awhile route, which I love! We also spent yesterday night baking Valentines-y themed Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting from scratch! :)

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting!

I thought they turned out pretty good but then again I don’t eat a lot of red velvet so I’m not sure how exactly it’s supposed to taste in comparison, lol. But we always have a great time baking together and ever since we got a Mixmaster for Christmas we’ve been baking a lot more. hehe.

It really doesn’t matter what we’re doing on what day, we always have the best time together. And honestly, 95% of the time we’re just at home, eating and watching TV. My favourite time.  ♥

To wrap up, I just to wanted to say, as I say every day, I love you Michael!

I hope everyone has a great day. Give lots of hugs and kisses to all of your loved ones!

My Wedding Pinterest!

I have been sitting on my Pinterest account for awhile now (while it gains popularity, which it has, lol. It’s a fairly new social network where you “pin” your interests on boards, fyi!) I wasn’t really into it at first but then I realized today that there is an entire Wedding Section!!

So I started a Wedding Ideas Pinterest Board and I think it’s given me a lot of great ideas and will be (along with this blog) a great wedding reference as this engagement progresses! I can see myself becoming very addicted to “pinning” :)

Are you on Pinterest? Add me! ;)
