Our Valentine's Day

Well here at I am, supposed to be working at Anthro, but I'm not because I got sick last night...all night long. Let's just say it was a night I'd love to forget and never have happen again, but that being said it made me realize how amazing of a husband Jordan really is. I tried not to wake up him, but that didn't happen. Even at 3:00 AM he's right there besides, rubbing my back and telling me it'll all be okay. What a guy. I honestly have no idea why I got soo sick, but I'm so glad that it happened today, the day AFTER Valentine's Day and not yesterday. I would have been so upset if all I could do was lay in bed, since it's one of my favorite holidays. Anyways, I'm feeling a lot better and am alive :) 

So onto yesterday! We both decided to keep it really low key at our attempt to save money. When I woke up, I received this amazing card (we always make our cards for each other) and my favorite type of chocolate, Cadbury with caramel! I gave him some donut holes which he loves, with this card on it, which I thought was fun!

Jordan's gift to me was taking me out to lunch to a suprise location since he had to work through dinner. After driving for about 20 minutes I realized we were at a sushi/hibachi restuarant with amazing Chinese food. Afterwards I thought that maybe I had gotten food posioning, but we both ate the same things, so not really sure! Regardless, it was really yummy and perfect for us, since Chinese food is one of our favs! After that we headed back home and just hung out. It was so great though. We had some music on as we were just doing things around the apartment, and he came over to me and started to dance with me! He doesn't like dancing so I thought it was soo sweet that he did this. He is actually a really good dancer, but he'll totally deny it!

Once it came time for Jordan to head off to work, I worked on finishing his gift. I'm usually not a last minute person, but for some reason it wasn't done yet! Luckily I finished it before he got home, as well as his homemade card :) I found the idea for his gift off of...pinterest, you guessed it! I loved the idea of how simple it was, yet so fun! It's a "CT girl with a NJ guy"  using real maps from each state. When I gave it to him, he LOVED it, and I was so happy! I love making gifts for people but I always get so scared they won't like it! But he did, so I was relived. I also made him strawberry shortcake since its our favorite dessert, using my mom's recipes for homemade whipped cream and baking powder biscuits. Everything turned out so well and it tasted so yummy. The only thing I'm regretting is that it was the last thing I ate before I went to bed. Let's just say I saw a lot of it throughout the night :(

So even though we didn't spend a ton of money or go out to the fanciest restaurant, it's amazing how much I find myself loving this man more and more every day. It's the little things that I love, like the homemade card, or wanting to just dance with me that makes life so memorable and exciting. I don't need a lot in life to be happy, just my man by my side (even when I'm bent over the toilet) is enough for me :) 

I hope you all had a great day! Only 364 more days until next year! Happy Wednesday!

I LOVE the donut gift. It's all in the presentation bcs that shows the THOUGHT! And it's so true that the thought means more than the actual gift.
