My pretty valentine
She spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to eat the book
Todd & I didn't exchange presents but I did get him these York peppermint patties and he had stopped on his way home from work to pick up a couple cookies from Sweet Tooth Cottage for me
My parents graciously offered to come over that evening to watch Lucy so Todd & I could have a date night. It was only our second true date night with the first one being for Todd's birthday back in November. We knew every restaurant would be packed since Valentine's Day fell on a Friday this year so we made reservations a few weeks back at one of my favorite restaurants, Marcella's. We were able to snag reservations at 6:15 PM at the one on Polaris, and even though we like the one in the Short North better, they were already booked up and we were just happy to get reservations at the time we wanted.

Dinner at Marcella's was fantastic as usual! We were really impressed with their service too and thought it might take awhile with it being Valentine's Day but we were out of there within an hour....which meant we had time to go to Old Bag of Nails for some drinks since we had told my parents we'd be back at 8:30.
Todd got a Manhattan and I got sangria at dinner
Love Marcella's cheese appetizer
For dinner, I got the Fettuccine & Meatball
and Todd got Eggplant Parmesan
Valentine's Day 2014
And at Old Bag of Nails, Todd got a beer sampler
and I had a glass of wine
We got home right around 8:30 and were happy to find Lucy fast asleep. It was the first time someone other than Todd or I had put her to bed at night and my mom said she had no problems putting her down. We were then able to relax on the couch for a little bit longer, watching the Olympics and eating dessert, before we started to get tired ourselves and headed to bed.
