It was an extra long weekend for me as I took Monday-Family Day-off from work. (Us public servants don’t get it as a holiday! Boo!)
On Saturday, hubby and I went to his parents for dinner. His mom thought it would be fun to host a ‘Valentines theme’ gathering and decided to test drive her new gourmet vegan cookbook on us.
I have to say that despite her and hubby’s dad not being vegan/vegetarian, the food was fantastic!
She also had all these Valentines candies laid out, so naturally I had to help myself to those as well. It was a nice evening though I went home feeling (and groaning) like a bloated sea cow, while hubby tried to listen to the hockey game on some AM radio station.
Sunday-Valentines Day-was so incredibly romantic and wonderful. Hubby bought me some roses during his coffee run to Tim Hortons. Maggie thought it very thoughtful that someone bought her some new plants to munch on. aka:
So naturally I spent the morning shooing her off the table. For dinner, we had cheese fondue followed by chocolate fondue. Oh and boiled artichokes, hmm…
Selena also got a haircut over the weekend. So she went from this shaggy, matted beast:
To a skinny little dog with virtually no hair, who I’m pretty sure, hates us now. LOL
So all in all it was a great weekend and I’d like to thank hubby for the effort he put into it.:)
How did you spend Valentines Day?
