V-Day Recap

Friday night My mom, one of my sisters and I went out for sushi and a movie. We saw Confessions of a Shopaholic. I LOVED IT! Besides the fact of it being a total chick flick (which I love), the movie had a really good story line and a sweet moral lesson.
If you haven't already, you should go see it!!

Saturday was Mr. H's Gift to me! He picked me up around 10am to start our V-day! We drove to his house where he said he would start his surprise. haha. I walked in the door and he pointed down to the ground. "Stand right here and close your eyes. No peaking!" I did what I was told and before I could ask any questions he was tying a blindfold around my eyes.
He drove me all over the world to get me confused on where he was taking me. It worked. I was confused and Car Sick! We finally reached our destination and he untied my blindfold. After I adjusted to the sunlight I looked around....IT WAS OUR HOUSE!!!
Mr. H has been looking into renting a house for our first couple of years of marriage. He found the most precious house. It is an Antique (almost 100 years old!) and I love it!
The inside is a little rough but a perfect project for Mr. H and I. Since it is so old, there is only 1 1/2 bathrooms...but it has 4 bedrooms! Don't be deceived by how little it looks...haha.
The Half bath, tiny and in need of some TLC and paint, was a cute surprise to see the teal and blackSo...We have a list of projects that need to be done in 5 1/2 months! I am so excited to keep everyone updated on the progress of the "H" house!

Mr. H and I went back to his house where we exchanged V-day gifts. I made him a Valentine basket full of his favorite things. A DVD, candy, orange tic-tacs, gum, A new belt, A orange hunting vest, wool socks, Hunting magazine, a can of sundrop...etc. I told him that I gave him a Easter basket for valentines day! lol...he loved it.

He did basically the same thing for me! I love getting my favs all at once!
After Mr. H and I exchanged gifts, he let me in on another secret. He had planned a candle lit steak dinner for us. We fixed dinner together and had such a lovely evening that included a hot tub visit of course!

I hope everyone had a Valentines Full of Love!

Promise to keep everyone updated!
