Finally Friday

Valentines day (the night portion) was a success. I decided to take the easy route and make a Pot Roast entree and Shrimp Scampi appetizer. The pot roast went directly into the crock pot, and shrimp scampi takes all of ten minutes to make (but it's one of my specialties if I do say so myself).

With all of my extra time, I sat in bed, cuddled with the kittens and took a little nap. Boyfriend woke me up at about 6:30 when he came in with his masterpiece dishes. Boyfriend can cook. In fact, I think he may actually cook better than I can. gasp. He went above and beyond with beef wellington and a baked brie with an amazing crust. Not only that, but he literally kept me in suspense until he served it. I'm an a-hole and had the crock pot sitting on the counter. 100% surprise ruiner.

Between courses we exchanged gifts. I got boyfriend this,


and this (I know the picture is terrible, but it's hot sauce. I bought it for him in New Orleans. I love all things cat related, obviously),

Boyfriend came in with the most beautiful vase filled with purple irises and red tulips. He also wrote me a card/letter (that was beyond amazing) and filled a gift basket with goodies like lip gloss, lotions, body sprays, and candy.

Boyfriend listens very carefully, because he knows i'd rather have tulips over roses any day. Especially on V-day when they are marked up 500%.

We wrapped up the evening with a bottle of Champagne. I drank 80% of it, and I felt it all the live long day. Hey, I can't let the bubbly stuff go to waste. How was your V-Day?
