Love is in the Air

Given a busy Saturday morning schedule with family in town, Cole and I celebrated our day of love on Friday evening instead of Saturday. In loo of some exciting Valentines gifts, we decided to forgo a busy and expensive dinner out on the town and instead stay in.

We made the agreement that I would handle dinner if Cole would cover desert. I found this was easier said than done given the fact that I had never cooked a piece of red meat in my life. Lucky for me, I married a hero who volunteered at the last minute to handle the fillets. I turned my attention to the super creamy mashed potatoes, steamed asparagus and store- bought rolls.

As if saving me from the meat wasn't wonderful enough- Cole agreed to watch All the President's Men (one of my all time favorites) with me. Despite falling asleep half way through, he was able to stay awake long enough to unveil his exciting desert, Winger's Asphalt Pie. Unbenounced to me, this is what Cole remembers as our first desert together. Beyond feeling a little guilty at forgetting this detail, him remembering was sweet enough for me.

Our point and shoot camera (pictured on the end of the table) was completely dead so please enjoy the slightly grainy camera-phone photo below.

Don't Be Stupid...

And try to honk at the jerk cutting off your neighbor in traffic and forget to look at the car in front of you. You will inevitably rear end a Windstar mini in your Kia Spectra.

Word to the wise, the van's bumper will win.

However, at least you will be pushed into the parking lot of the ever-classy Del Taco on Minuteman Drive while all of 5 o'clock traffic drives by thinking, "Bummer, but I'm glad that isn't me."

All drama aside, while I was sad to see the car of my college (and postcollege) years bite the dust, Cole and I are having fun looking for a gently-used replacement.

Farewell, Kiosk, Farewell.
