Birthdays & Valentines
Anyone have *big* plans for today?
Maybe a dinner date at a nice restaurant, or a sweet card and a box of chocolates?
Nothing fancy planned here.
Actually, you couldn't pay me enough money to go out to a restaurant tonight! Around here they'll all be jam packed with people waiting in long lines that begin way outside the doors.
Been there~ done that and to me it's simply not worth the wait.
So for our Valentine's we'll be enjoying some strip steaks baked in the oven (it's cold & rainy outside and I don't want to stand in the rain to grill them) with some baked potatoes and a veggie.
Dessert ~ Chocolate, of course!
This weekend flew right by me!
Friday - Monster Trucks at Wheeling Civic Center
Saturday - Shopping for a new cell phone plan for the whole family. This is something that we have needed to do for a good while since we lose service quite often with our old provider. However, it's just so expensive and confusing to me that I just kept putting it off. I'm not one of those that has to have the latest of everything and so I'm usually one of the last to catch on when it comes to the new tech stuff like fancy phones and IPods.
You know,it's pretty bad when your 11 year old son has to explain how to work all the features on your new cell phone!
Sunday - We celebrated Logan's 15th birthday with pizza, cake and presents. Yikes! I can't believe my baby is old enough to begin driving.
Today it's back to the old grind.
~Laundry (which I did manage to get 3 loads outside to dry on the line before the temperature dropped and the rain began...can't wait for spring!
Hoping to get some time a little later to just sit and sew a bit while watching tv.
Hope you all are having a fabulous Valentine's Day!
