We Are Not Fancy So Much

A super fantastical evening with the love. check

We have never really been into Valentine's Day but I have to say...this year's was super. My mom is one of those crazy (and by crazy I mean crazy awesome) grandma's who makes a big deal about every holiday with her favorite people on earth...the grandkids. Sometimes I wish I was her grandkid. So a Valentines party was planned (complete with heart shaped everything, balloons, presents, chocolate...why do they even want to come home?). Seeing that we were not invited to this event...grandkids only...we went on a date. Dinner with my sis and bro-in-law (shrimp on a stone...yummmm). And then a movie. Cheesecake Factory deliciousness to go. Thursday night shows goodness...Community, The Office, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec & Outsourced (it's my favorite TV night...don't judge me. You don't even know me!) It was delightful and perfectly sweet. We are, however, not fancy so much. And I like that about us. I pretty much like everything about us.

I like that we don't have to get fancy to know the evening is special.
I like that we still hold hands.
I like that we stop holding hands before they start to sweat.
I like that we laugh at stupid things together.
I like that we both are getting old.
I like that we are best friends.
I like that we make cute kids.
I like that I still like spending time with him.
I like us.

Happy Valentine's Day

  1. I like you guys too! Oh and I like that you are such good friends you came back from a weekend at home with a metal detector and found Kyle's wedding band at the beach that we had lost celebrating a special Valentine's evening of Laventina's pizza on the lifeguard tower at Balboa Beach. Pure awesomeness! Oh and we love Outsourced too. :)
