valentine's day


Other than exchanging cards and little gifts, we didn't end up going out for Valentine's until today since I was still recovering from my illness on Tuesday. Thanks for so much all the sweet, sweet well-wishes, by the way! You're all amazing! (Right after I posted on Sunday claiming to not have gotten as sick as Lance, I came down with it pretty bad! Blah. Guess that will teach me to speak too soon!)

 We hadn't made any huge Valentine's plans or reservations. Our only goal was to spend some quality time together, so it was no problemo postponing until today.

 This morning we went out for bagels and coffee and Lance surprised me with a mini shopping spree (I know, best husband ever, right?!). He despises shopping, so it was pretty much a major sacrifice for him to come along and therefore the best gift ever!

We spent our time trying on ridiculous outfits and ginormous glasses and playing "would you name our kid ____?". And no, no bun in the oven, just fun future talk in which I learn fascinating things about Lance's taste in baby names. Achilles?! Really? No thanks. 

 Being a particularly gray day in Seattle (shocking!), it was perfect for a casual day of togetherness. This evening I think we're gonna do dinner and a movie in. Yup, pretty much a Valentine's Day totally suited for our style: chill. relaxed.

HAHAHA! Achilles! I swear boys say that to bug us. When Kane and I were picking out names he kept saying Casiopia and other wierd mythological names.

I want your sweater. Glad you're feeling better! xx

I love your blog! Great idea! I think it's amazing what we learn about our husbands' taste of names... Laz said his top choice was Legend. Im thinking a kid with that name would have an ego problem.

Sounds like wonderful times with the hubs. Mine doesn't like to eat out (like ever) so I kind of miss going out for breakfast or an afternoon tea and just observe the world outside the house...

Happy weekend!
