Wonderful Weekend

Last Saturday, I remember…

Getting up at the crack of dawn. Taking a drive. Seeing the snow- beautiful. Morning shopping at the Summit. Being showered with festive Valentine’s cookies, cupcakes and treats in all the stores- just for shopping. Lunch @ The Cheesecake Factory. Yummy, yummy cheesecake.

(Mouseover this image for a cool effect- click on the numbers that pop up!)

  • 1. Godiva Chocolate Brownie Sundae (Kevin’s)  
  • 2. Layers of cheesecake, fudge cake, & chocolate truffle cream. YUM! :) (Mine!)  
  • ♥ Swearing I’d never eat again.  
  • ♥ More shopping at Brookwood Village.  
  • 3. Being whisked to Godiva and getting to design my own custom 8-piece chocolate collection.  
  • ♥ Eating again.  
  • ♥ More shopping.  
  • 4. Funky, hot pink scarf from Gloss  
  • 5. Painterly Blooms Scarf from LOFT  
  • 6. Loving this bag from Charming Charlie’s  
  • ♥ Happy.  
  • 7. Finding a candle that smells exactly like our favorite ice cream spot.  

Spending the whole day with my sweetie.

All in all, it was a *14 hour* shopping day with my Valentine. I love you baby!

♥♥♥

On Sunday we slept in, and sometime during the middle of the night- it snowed. When we woke up, everywhere we could see was covered in fresh, white powder.

Kevin went out into the cold and took this picture. I stayed inside in my pajamas. See Miley & Howie? :)

Sunday night, we had reservations for dinner and a movie.

reservations

We had reserved seats for the movie too- no waiting in line! :) We sat in a love seat and saw Valentine’s Day. I loved it. They brought us complimentary chocolate covered strawberries. We ate sweet potato fries during the movie.

boots

I wore these boots.

I want to go back every week. Happy, happy Valentine’s Day ♥

P.S. Remember my Valentine’s Day Surprise from 2008?

XOXO

That looks GREAT! I love the purse (of course) and the boots!!! Polkadots and buttons and boots all in one??? What could be better???
Glad you had a great Valentine’s Day! We had a nice day, but if it had involved all of that shopping and chocolate, I’d think it was the best. Mine did involve chocolate, but my hubby thought that a ginger dark chocolate bar would be something I would like. It was gross. LOL! So, he made up for it with a beautiful fruit topped cheese cake from our local french bakery and a bag of my favorite dark coffee beans. Yum! {Then I went shopping this week and bought myself lots of fun stuff…including boots and jewelry} See how that works?

I see Miley & Howie looking out the door, watching to see what their daddy is doing. What a lovely home you & Kevin have.
It’s soooooo nice to be young, I can remember those days sooooo long ago. Bless you both & enjoy being sooooo in love.
Amanda, just love those boots & I am so glad that you had a wonderful Valentines Day. Never stop making special times together, cause once you do, you can never make up for what you have lost.

HI! I just found your site and wow, you are so talented. I used to dabble in photoshop but its been forever. Now I am begging my hubby for an SLR camera since I found your site. How do you make those small thumbnails that look like photos stacked on each other? Goshm, I could ask you a million questions about photoshop!

Love your blog and all your pics!

Amanda, I could devour your blog. You are sooo talented !

I have a question for you ? I am just starting my second blog as I lost too may pictures from the first. I find myself stuck for content, and general interest. I love photography, but use my small Canon.
I have done three posts now and I think I need a header. Do you do these for people as I am in the dark with digital.
I would love it if you could drop by and sort of critique my one page, and give me your thoughts. You have such great ideas and talent.
I am at http://myredandyellowbaskets.blogspot.com/ I would so appreciate it.
Thanks either way Connie
