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.

You go Cole! That is so awesome. I am sure he really made your Valentine's special from doing all that.

I am glad you both had a good Valentine's.

We are like you guys, we like to celebrate it the night before or on a week night due to crowds. This year we went to the ward party.
