Curtis and I celebrated a little early this year. My parents kept the kids (still so weird to say that) at their house last night while we went to see a movie. Since we didn't really have time to do dinner and a movie, we went to one of those theaters where you can order a real meal and eat it while you're watching. We saw Confessions of a Shopaholic. I was stunned that my husband suggested it and even more stunned that he laughed throughout and actually liked it! It was super cute and only PG. It's always nice to leave a theater and not have to feel bad about what you just saw. Anyway, Curtis had two gifts for me. The first gift was a pair of silver hoop earrings from Banana Republic. I LOVE them! And the second was a small box of Godiva chocolates. Praise the Lord. I lerve Godiva. My man did so good!
Curtis cut me some slack this year since I couldn't really do much shopping. I could only think of things to get him at Best Buy and he has a ton of gift cards to there from Christmas that he hasn't even begun to use. What he wanted, he said, was a free pass to go to a movie one night and see something guyish. Granted! I think he's going tonight. I hope he doesn't feel weird alone in a theater with a hundred couples. I did get him a card, since words are my love language and all.
I got the kids' valentines at the grocery store. It was a nice chance to get them surprises that don't cost much. Jackson got a card that lights up. It was so cute. He also got a sword that makes bubbles and a bag of chocolate candy. Annabeth got a Sesame Street card and a pink teddy bear wearing a feather boa and carrying a purse full of conversation hearts. She donated her candies to her brother.
It seriously irks me how bad Annabeth's pink stuff clashes with my red couches in all our pictures. If only I'd known I would have a girl!
This is officially my favorite picture I've ever taken: my two February Valentines.
