Love Is In The Air

15 Feb

B and I don’t like to exchange gifts for Valentine’s Day, instead opting to spend our money on going out to eat. He and I have a tradition of making each other original cards, using only printer paper and a pen. He and I both procrastinated this year and I may cheat and use a red sharpie. Before you get mad at me he cheated first by buying me roses. Below is an unfortunately low-quality twitpic of the bouquet (and his dog Wrigley.)

Let’s play catch up on my last 5 days shall we? I spent 3 wonderful days in Irvine, CA, with girl friends exploring the beautiful city and eating amazing food. (You lucky SoCal girls with access to Boudin’s sandwiches all the time I’m officially JEALOUS.) Unfortunately I don’t have pictures. I know, I suck. I came home yesterday and due to wonderful flight delays only spent 8 hours in airports and on airplanes (when total flight time should have been 1:15.) My wonderful boyfriend was kind enough to drive out to the airport around 11 Sunday night to rescue me from a tiring day.

Monday was spent in 7 hours of class (ew.) followed by a wonderful valentine’s evening with B. He picked me up and we went to our favorite Mediterranean place for shawerma (pronounced shwarma), a flavorful dish typically made out of beef, lamb, or turkey, with special middle eastern spices, served alongside saffron rice, hummus, and grilled vegetables, and pita bread. Again… no pictures. I ate every last bite and cleaned my plate.

My mom also sent me a little Valentine’s day package with some neat goodies. I’m especially going to use the heart shaped key cap to keep track of my house key and the heart shaped bottle opener I’m sure will come in handy.


Isn’t my mom cute?

What did you do for V-Day?

Bisous,
Rachel

    Roses + useful heart-shaped gadgets sounds like an awesome Vday. I would share, but vday really isn’t a single gal’s holiday, haha.

    What a darling bottle opener! My mama always gives me a heart day package too. This year it was a gorgeous apron and scarf!
