Valentine's Day 2014

Yesterday was of course Valentine's Day, and it was a great one! Working all day wasn't that great, but then I came home to Trent cooking in the kitchen and hurrying to get our Valentine's Day dinner ready, and my day was immediately better! 


Every year we have dinner at home, and Trent always cooks. He had cleaned and set the table and had music playing. I brought in the presents I got for him:


Trent opened his presents first. I got him a few little things this year.


One was a set of 4 personalized beer glasses to add to his collection. I thought they would be perfect to drink his home-brewed beer from (which we really need to start making, by the way!). He really liked them I think! I got them from here, at Red Envelope.


I also got him two other things that he had been wanting - the CD and the Blu-Ray of Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds live at Radio City Music Hall. It is an AWESOME CD! We've already listened to it. I really want to watch the live recording together, too.


After he opened his presents, we ate our dinner. Every year Trent cooks something different. Last year he made veggie lasagna. This year he made vegetarian stuffed peppers, and penne with vodka sauce.


The stuffed peppers were actually really good! They were stuffed with rice, cheese, beans, and olives, and topped with marinara and parmesan cheese.


Of course we had to take the annual "Valentine's Day dinner across the table" pics. This year Saleen made an appearance in Trent's picture.

 

Hard to believe that the sun was still kind of out when we started eating our dinner. It's getting darker later now (I can almost smell spring time...kind of.)




Here's the whole meal. Trent is quite the cook! I am lucky!



The Brownie Batter cake from Hy-vee was what made the meal for me. YUM. Ha!


After snapping a couple pics together to remember the night....


We headed up to the cities for a Quad City Mallards hockey game! My dad won tickets, and WE GOT TO GO! Our friends Kayla and Leo joined us. It was really fun. The first time this year that I got to go to a hockey game!


We had a blast and ended up winning. It was even dollar beer night, so...we enjoyed ourselves. :)



The perfect ending to a perfect Valentine's Day! I even woke up today to find this in the kitchen:


Another reason why I love him! Today I've been spending the day at home while Trent's at work. But I'm getting excited for tonight - we're having a special celebration that's kind of a secret. :) More to come!
