My Valentine's Day

I just love Valentine's Day. I think it's awesome to have a special day dedicated to the ones you love. My day was not filled with presents and romance but we did everything I had planned out for the day and it was wonderful. Here's what our day looked like..

First we started off our day with a beautiful snowy hike! It was absolutely freezing outside and my legs felt like they were going turn into icicles and break but I loved it.






























With legs that felt frost bitten, a nice hot bubble bath and a good book were calling my name. Once I finished with my bath we started making supper - delicious fish and chips with homemade tartar sauce. We decided to eat in the living room while watching an episode of The X-Files.

Next we made some Valentine's cookies! Some of my favorite fast and easy cookies to buy are the Pillsbury sugar cookies. I love getting the holiday themed ones- so cute!

Next was a good old game of Disney Monopoly! We had so much fun playing this (even though I lost badly!)

The rest of the night was spent hanging out and reading. A perfect day in my eyes! Let me know how your Valentine's Day went!

  1. What a lovely snow scene to have walked through; I'm still crossing my fingers for snow over here before spring hits! Great choice on baking cookies and ending the day with Monopoly by the way, there's no greater board game - right?! :)

  4. Such a lovely and fun day! It's not about presents anyway, it's about the moment. ( not that getting presents is wrong of course) but having a nice day and beautiful and fun moments to remember is just amazing!

    I remember when I went to NY and my feet just felt like frozen!!!! & the funny thing is that it wasn't even snowing so I CAN'T imagine what you went through XD

    lovely post!

  14. Aww sounds like a lovely valentine's day to me! Sounds perfect actually! I had a very chill valentine's day hanging out with my sweet guy. We stayed in, watched TV and made some dinner at home. It was great, lovely, simple and one of the best valentine's days :)
