Valentines Day 2012

I celebrated the majority of my Valentines Day completely miserable.. 
Basically- I deliver the mail, set up the catered lunches, and then clean them up.
AKA- I spent 8am-5pm on VDay serving people delicious food when I didn't even have time for a lunch break and delivering people beautiful flowers and chocolate dipped strawberries while running over my toes with the mail cart.
Call me a Negative Nancy if you want, but working here caused me to want to take my all time favorite holiday and put it in a blender, on high, and then pour it down the drain.

No worries though- that all changed when 5pm rolled around
I ran home, showered off all the negativity, put on my reddest shirt and chugged a cup of coffee. Then the wonderfulness that is Valentines Day began- there was a knock on the door and there stood my handsome boyfriend with pink roses in hand.

We had plans to eat dinner and then go to see Safe House. We saw The Vow on Friday so it was his turn to pick the movie and in all honesty, I was looking forward to seeing Safe House as well. Well, all the restaurants had around 1.5 hour wait soo.. we did like any young southern couple would do.. we went to the local Golden Corral. haha Now, Andrew felt so so bad. He kept saying, 'I promise we can go somewhere nice later this week' and 'If you blog about this, please tell them another Andrew took you here and you were just cheating on me or something.' haha I seriously LOVED it though. There was no long lines, the best and largest all you can eat buffet and they have a chocolate fondu fountain. My first plate was full of Thanksgiving like meal items, my second was a nice salad and spegetti and then I had an array of dessert. It was perfect. I even brought up that maybe we should make that a tradition. Who wants to wait in the cold for an overpriced dinner on Valentines Day anyways? Not this girl. I'd rather spend it piggin out with my honey at an all you can eat buffet.

As far as the movie went- it was amazing. I really did enjoy it and let's face it- Denzel is the bomb-dot-com at acting. I was a bit skeptical how Ryan Reynolds would do in this serious of a role but he aced it. It was a good movie- good plot, good ending, just all around good. I recommend it!

As far as gifts go- Andrew and I are going to Asheville, NC on Saturday morning for the night. We are going to the Biltmore Estate, going out to a nice dinner, and being total tourists. We did flowers & cards last night but I have a couple little surprises for Andrew this weekend. I love buying him gifts- I think I get more excited about giving them than he does receiving them!
P.S. I hate snow, I mean hate it. Icey, wet, cold.. what's to like unless your beside a warm fire watching it from your cozy house. But I secretly hope it snows this weekend.. mainly for pictures sake.
So romantic :)

The Biltmore Estate

How was your Valentines Day? I hope it was spent with those you love.
Afterall, the greatest gift is loving and being loved back in return.

Speaking of which- my sweet, sweet Mama gave me a darling Valentines card! I just love her to peices. No matter how old I get, she still gets me a little something for Valentines, Easter, etc. and it literally warms my heart. I don't think she even knows how much I look forward to it!



  1. That night sounds so fun! I'm the kind of girl that wouldn't mind going to Golden Corral either! My boyfriend and I spend time together every day, so why not do something fun! haha. You will love teh Biltmore House! Jake and I went during December and loved it!

  2. those roses are GORGEOUS! boyfriends make everything better :)

  3. The roses are beautiful. I hope you have a great time on trip. The Biltmore Estates are absolutely stunning. I went last summer. I definitely reccommend paying the extra to get the headphones. At least one of your should that way you can hear the history or information about the rooms and items in the rooms. I especially loved seeing the clothing.

  4. Oh, I also recommend stopping by the gift shops and the ice cream shop. The ice creams are made from the recipes that the family used when they lived in the house. The butter pecan is the best!

  5. HAHA love it!! Steve and I decided to skip out on the long wait for dinner so we ordered Chinese & hung out at home... it was perfect!! I hope you guys have an AMAZING time at Biltmore - I'm dying to visit there again!

  6. ok i love this!! so stinkin cute.
