Valentine's Day 2015

Todd & I celebrated Valentine's Day last Friday, a day early, since our babysitters (Lucy's grandparents) were going to be out of town on Valentine's Day.  We had dinner reservations for 6:00 PM so we dropped Lucy off at Grandma & Grandpa's around 5:30 PM and stayed for a few minutes since they had presents for her.  Her grandparents sure know how to spoil her!  She got presents from MaMa & PaPa last weekend when they were in town and she got more on Friday.  My dad continued his Valentine's Day tradition and made a card for me and one for Lucy.

Lucy's card was really big and my dad even made a flap for her since she loves flap books

 I absolutely love this picture of the 2 of them....both so happy!

Grandma handing Lucy a present

She's smiling and looking at the's a miracle!

She was really excited about her new ball (which you can just barely see on the left side)

And she's off with her ball

But then got distracted by another present
A dog!
Lucy is definitely an animal lover and I've already found her giving her new doggie lots of hugs
One last present to open which was a couple of books

Lucy gave her grandparents some chocolate covered strawberries from Anthony Thomas because she knew how much Grandma really likes them & she wanted to thank her for watching her while mommy is at work

One more photo before heading out to dinner

Todd & I went to Tucci's, in downtown Dublin, for dinner & had some time afterwards to go to the Daily Growler for some tasters before picking Lucy back up around 8:15 PM.  We had never been to Tucci's before and it's been on Todd's must-try list for a few years now.  I was really excited to try their lasagna but once the server told me it was spicy, I opted for the Mediterranean pasta instead.  It was good but nothing outstanding.  I did really enjoy their house salad and Todd loved his ahi tuna stacks.  We ended up stopping at Culver's for dessert after we picked Lucy up and enjoyed our concrete mixers once she was in bed.


Not the best picture but the only one we took

We got three 5 oz taster beers and the one that I ordered, the carrot cake beer, was not good....I swear it tasted like a candle

On Saturday, which was actually Valentine's Day, I met Lynn, one of my really good friends, for a free "Love Your Body" class at Pure Barre.  It was the perfect way to start the day and I'm so glad I have friends that enjoy working out, it definitely makes it more fun!

After class, I rushed home to get ready so we could go meet our friends' newest addition, their baby girl, Anya.  We hung out with them for almost an hour and seriously left just in the nick of time.  It started snowing while we were over there and the roads were getting really slick on our drive home.  Right when we got home, we looked out the windows and it seemed like a blizzard whiteout and lots of snow squalls.  We only ended up getting a couple inches of snow but because of the wind, it looked like we were getting a lot more.  We heard the roads were pretty bad out and Delaware County was under a level 2 snow emergency so Lucy & I stayed put the rest of the day while Todd ventured out to Lowes to buy tile and supplies to do our kitchen back splash.  He also picked us up dinner from Piada.   Not a very exciting Valentine's Day but we were just happy to spend the day together and with Lucy.

Todd & I didn't exchange presents but he did surprise me with this Frostop Root Beer that he saw at Kroger when he went to buy gift cards for's the little things that count
