We had another most excellent Valentines Day around here. Kyle and I realized that this was our 5th Valentines Day together--totally wild! Doesn't make any sense to me, but I keep counting and it keeps being 5, so it has to be true.
I woke up to a sweet note from Kyle and an entire bag of Mini Eggs. Mmm. (They are almost all gone already.) Ruby and I met Christy and her girls in Draper and spent the afternoon with them, which is always my #1 Favorite Activity. It turns out Ruby looooves valentines. She got 3 from Lucy, Christy, and my mom and she carries them around with her all the time! It's really cute.
While out and about with Christy, I got Kyle his gift--a new firm pillow. He really likes it.
Once Kyle got home, we went on a Pick A Place date, one of our favorite things. We take turns thinking of somewhere to go and surprise the other person with it. It takes a lot of pressure off the "What are we going to do?" dilemma that we often find ourselves with. I picked first--and surprised Kyle with a very fancy dinner at KFC. Kyle loooooves KFC (ever since working there as a teen) but he never gets to go there because I think it's gross. I felt very good giving him the gift of fried chicken, and quite enjoyed my biscuit :) He then chose to walk around BYU campus and take cute pictures of Ruby. We hadn't been back on campus for a while so it was super fun! As I watched him run around and play with Ruby, I thought about when I was single and saw young, handsome fathers playing with their adorable babies on campus and Just. Wanted. One. Now I have one and it is so awesome and I feel incredibly lucky!
I chose dessert at Sweet Tooth Fairy, he chose going home to put Ruby to bed and get a frosty glass of milk to eat our cookies with, and I chose watching Return of the King (which Celia so awesomely sent me this week because she is the best).
Kyle is awesome and it was a great day. The end.
