V-day fun

Oh, I just love Valentine’s Day. Tragically, I think I live with Scrooge, so it’s not a big deal in our house. Poor Josh believes that it’s just a corporate invented holiday, (which it totally is, but I’m all about it) so we don’t do the present thing. I suppose this isn’t an all bad thing (you know, being poor and all!) but I am not so good at not spending money so of course I bought something for my favourite man. Sad thing, it didn’t get here yet, so I can’t say what it is. Nothing too big, but just something to show I love him!
So yea, even though Josh is the anti-lover of all holidays I did convince him to entertain me for one evening. So it started with him coming to visit me at work for lunch and he brought me potted flowers (Josh doesn’t believe in cut flowers, he says they die too soon and even though I will probably end up killing the flowers he gave me anyways, they’d last longer than the cut ones!). We ate lunch together at work and then he went back to school. Then at 5 he picked me up and we went to OPA! where we met up with Kelly and Rob. I have to say, I love that place. It’s one of the places I go out to eat for lunch at work, and so I’m always talking about it, and thought, hey, why not go there for supper. So we got there and seated and it was super nice in there with their little twinkly lights on the trees and the little rose at the table. We ordered my favorite appetizer and then had chicken souvlaki for my main course. Josh and Rob got some type of pasta (which I also ate some of because I am a pig) and Kelly got stuffed chicken. I think we all enjoyed it all pretty good, since we walked out of there stuffed. This, however, didn’t stop us from going back to Kelly and Rob’s place for chocolate fondue! Mmm. Strawberries and cantaloupe and bananas are all my favourite and it was so good. After I stuffed my face there we had to rush out because I was popping out of my pants! It was such a good night though. So thanks to Josh for pretending to love V-day, and thanks to Kel and Rob for the fun evening.
Hope you all had a good evening doing whatever it was you do. Oh, and I have pictures, but my camera is dead. I’ll post them on Monday.

For one second I thought you were saying you "had to rush out because you were pooping your pants" then I re-read it and laughed! Glad you had a fun night!
