Happy Valentine's Day!
Honestly, I've never been a huge Valentine's Day fan, whether I was single or in a relationship. Even when I had a serious boyfriend all through college, we never really did anything too crazy for Valentine's Day...it always just seemed like an excuse for stores to rake in more money.
However, I'm certainly no Valentine's Day Scrooge, either. I always wear red or pink, love giving out (and receiving) candy hearts and heart-shaped chocolates, and love to send cards and e-cards to my family and friends each year.
So, imagine my surprise when I woke up to quite a festive sight this morning:
Inside the card was a simple, heartfelt note, and a Livingsocial deal for a Pub Crawl! Yesss. What made this whole setup extra special was that Sean and I go to bed at the same time, and I wake up before him...which means he snuck out in the middle of the night to set this up. I love that man.
So, the rest of my day has been spent with my mini-Valentine:
Being a nanny is still going really well. Other things going on lately?
Grad school. I am loving it so far, but it is (of course) very hard work. I am still trying to get into the groove and find my rhythm with paper-writing, textbook-reading, and studying--all while working 40+ hours per week (I work a lot of weekend hours, too). So...sorry for the lack of blogging.
Other things I've enjoyed include crock pot meals:
(with a side of wine, of course)
(This was taken before the Super Bowl, when my RAVENS won!!! That hasn't happened since I was a kid, so needless to say I was PUMPED)
And random trips to visit friends in interesting, fairly-nearby places:
I just wanted to post a quick little update to let you know what I've been up to lately. Off to do some reading for school and have some chocolates!
Have a day filled with love and sweetness!
