V-Day Recap: Flowers, Cheesecake and Pizza
Oh February 13th while sitting at work on just another Monday I heard a man at the front desk ask the receptionist for me. I walked out of my office and saw him holding a flower arrangement of nothing other than tulips, my favorite flower. I knew right away that my hubby was to thank for these goodies! I called him right away and gushed over how much I love him and all that jazz. (Back story: last year, our first married Valentines Day he didn't get me anything...I may or may not have pitched a little fit and on February 15th he got me my favorite candy...fun dip...and some movies) He told me about all of the obstacles he went through trying to get them to me. Somehow despite computer and internet connection errors, page refreshes and the unavailability of the flowers he ordered they got me my flowers. He said that he got them one day early this year to make up for one day late late year!
Added bonus: these flowers came with a heart lollipop stuck in them. SCORE!
My hubby works on Mondays until 9:00 and usually does not get home until 9:30. I friend at work told me about Papa John's Pizza and their heart shaped pizza for Valentines Day only. Papa John's is my husband's favorite...not at all mine. Though, I knew I could make the sacrifice for my honey. I ordered two pizzas and had then delivered right before he got home from work.
While waiting for him to get home I made some of his favorite dessert, the Kahlua Cocoa Coffee Cheesecake cupcakes. I made a whole batch just for him! Check out the recipe HERE.
When he got home..a little late, about 9:45ish we sat at our dining room table and ate heart shaped pizza and watched an episode of Lie to Me (on Netflix...a great show). No, it probably wasn't the most romantic of Valentines that was ever had but it was simple...just how we like it.
Oh, and we got to hang out with this little guy...our puppy named Gus!
