Love Overflowing

Valentine’s Day fun

Valentine’s Day. A made up day by the greeting card company? Maybe. A day that companies try to make you buy stuff to show your love? Maybe. I spent my day with the two people that I love the most and that’s Valentine’s Day to me.

Stephen had an awesome deal from Build a Bear workshop. A free animal. Now who could pass that up?? Not us! Hindsight tells us that maybe we should have waited until Monday though. It seems like everyone and their brother had the same idea that we did! The line for BAB was at the door! Unfortunately, Emily is at the age that if you tell her you are going to do stuff and actually go to the place there isĀ  no turning back. So we waited. And we waited. Emily built a bunny named Ruby. She calls her “Maximus Ruby” for short. She had a giggle box. And that makes Emily laugh. Even though we had to wait a long, long time, it was worth it. Emily had a good time and it warms our hearts to see her happy. Happy, not spoiled mind you.

Stephen and I were lucky enough to spend Valentine’s Day alone. We had originally planned on a quiet evening at home with Miss Emily. But Grandma and Papa had other plans. They wanted to take their “valentine” out to dinner. Us turn down free babysitting?? No way!

They ended up at Bob Evans while we went to TGIFriday’s. The service there can never be beat and the food is yummy. After dinner we went to see a movie. I know- so cliche’. Dinner and a movie. Know what I say? Cliche’ smiche’. We haven’t been to the movies we saw “The Corpse Bride” while on vacation in 2005. It was nice. I got to choose the movie so I chose a chick flick. What’s better than a funny chick flick on v-day? I am sure Stephen could have thought of something! We saw “He’s Just Not That Into You”. It was a cute movie.

All in all, it was a wonderful Valentine’s Day. I got to spend time with my two favorite people in the whole entire world. Life is good!
