Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm working alllll day today so we had our own Vday celebration on Saturday. 

Every year, we switch off who is "in charge" of Valentine's Day so one person can always sit back, relax, and get spoiled. This year, it was Chas' turn to be the planner and he did an excellent job! 

There was breakfast in bed, a candy gram, cute card (with a puppy on the front, of course), trip to Target to buy baby girl jammies, dinner at Ruth's Diner, and a stop at Home Depot to grab paint, tape, and brushes for our big DIY project. 

The night ended with us in our grubby "work" clothes taping of areas of a basement wall. 
(We know how to get preeetty romantic around here.)

Total Vday success. 

And let's not forget my dad. 
He's the father of five girls. 

When we lived at home, he would get us each a rose every Valentine's Day. 
Now, he sends us an email, telling us all individual why he's proud of us and then attaches a picture of a rose to the email.
Never misses a year. 

Let's just say I've got the best two Valentines. 
The best.
