Welcome to Talkin’ About Thursdays!

I loved hearing about your goals last week.  And I’m looking forward to reading about what you did for Valentine’s Day.
After you write your post and link back here (you can copy my button above), add your link to the list below. Then have some fun stopping by each other’s sites, and be sure to comment while you’re there.

Here’s what I did:

My parents were visiting for my dad’s birthday and they offered to watch the kids one night so Mike and I could go on a date.

We had a great time.

We enjoyed a long dinner (without any interruptions!).

It was a beautiful night out, so after dinner we walked around the fountains,

sat by the fire pit,

and when we passed a chic little clothing store, Mike totally surprised me and said, “Let’s go in and get you something.” (He’s not a shopper and neither am I; I usually like to know exactly what I’m looking for, go to the place I’ll find it, get it, and be done.)

But we had the best time shopping together.


I tried on some really fun outfits and he got a massage while he waited…

The store had the cutest clothes–like the black dress with the really cool pattern down the side, and the white shirt with silver rhinestones around the waist, but, seriously, where would I wear them? (Probably not to the grocery store or to help in the kids’ classrooms…lol.)

So I ended up picking out a pair of jeans (that I absolutely love). We had a great night… talking and laughing and totally ignoring the clock.

But my favorite part was when I opened my fortune cookie at dinner and read…

and Mike looked at me and said, “I’m interested in you.”  :)

  3. Genny –That is the sweetest, most precious, romantic recap ever!!! :)Leo and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day — not really sure why, but we keep it low-key.
