This year was my turn to surprise Ryan with Valentines treat for him. We take turns surprising each other with Valentines treats. Last year he was extremely awesome and laid red rose pedals from the top of the stairs into the bedroom then to the bathtub. When I turned to look in the bathroom he had a bath ran with bath milk in it and red pose pedals floating on the water. There were about 50 candles lit and a CD player with song "Your Beautiful" from James Blunt CD on repeat. Which was one of my favorite songs at the time.
So how in the world was I going to top that. I have class after work on Valentines Day so we were not going to be able to see each other till after 10:00pm. So I got up early and made his lunch like I always do but this time I added a Valentines Day card and a Godiva chocolate Bar with wrapping around it that said I love you. Inside the card it said I know we wont be able to be together on Valentines Day but I hop that you wouldn't mind waiting until Saturday to drive to Napa and ride the Napa Valley Wine Train and tour a Vineyard for a private taste testing. We love Napa! He left for work but all day I kept thinking I want to do something for him today. After work I went upstairs to our living room and I was cleaning the glass on the coffee table when I realized exactly what I was going to do. I went to our computer and started going through all the pictures we have taken and printed out in black and white all the memorable ones. I picked up the glass on the coffee table and made a collage of the pictures on it. I then ran downstairs and made Chicken tortellini with pesto and walnuts on top, corn on the cob, garlic bread and fruit on sticks. I bought this cool red vase that has two champagne flutes in it that you either have to hold or return to the vase when you want to set it down. I put a bottle of Mumm Napa Rose to keep with the theme. I lighted about 10 candles and put them around the room. When he got home he was shocked because he thought we were just going to Napa and it was sweet of me to make dinner special. Yay Nice things can be free to!
I did buy him a new pair of running shoes though. We are doing a Half Marathon together on March 16 at Raley Field called Shamrock'N. I am stoked I am going to push myself through this event and believe that I will be able to finish the 13.1 miles. I am just excited to be healthy right now, we both starting taking Juice Plus and IO joined a Momma Boot Camp Class in Roseville and ran 2.25 miles last week and the did an hour of training with the group of mommas. It was fun and I look forward to getting shape and feeling good and having more energy. It has been warming up and its already feeling like Spring. This is my favorite time of the year just makes me feel HAPPY!
