Valentine's Day Via Instagram

We had the best Valentine's Day over here at the Manor, and I was completely spoiled. When I first woke up, I saw a chocolate rose in a Packer's glass (lol) and a really sweet card on the coffee table. Although I had to laugh because the front of the card said something about all the years of parenting we did together, and how our kids had moved on now and it was just the two of us again? Apparently, Adam had only skimmed the front of the card, and had read the inside, because that totally didn't apply. And maybe I should have been mad about that, but it was too funny to be mad about. I guess it really is the thought that counts?

I gave him a special Valentine's card that I had gotten off Etsy that was in the style of Dr. Who!! Which is a kind of geeky, British, Sci-fi series that Adam has gotten me addicted to this year. Of course, I wrote a really sweet message as well. And inside the card, I had hidden a Game Stop Gift Card.

After the exchange, Adam surprised me by making me pancakes. Which everyone knows is my favorite thing ever! Plus, he never cooks, and he has certainly never made pancakes. He even had bought me my favorite toppings: Strawberries, Chocolate Chips, and Macadamia Nuts.  I didn't even try to choose which ones to use, I just piled all those suckers on there together. They were delicious.

Later that day, I brought in some of the cutest cupcakes for the teenagers I work with and all around it was just a fantastic love day. I hope everyone felt the love from someone on Tuesday. Be it a husband, a child, a parent, lover, or friend!

  1. Great job on Adam for spoiling you! My sisters husband bought her a card that said to my husband on the front of it, so it could be worst. Haha. I guess it happens more than we imagine. Keep on loving each other! Your the best.

  2. I really like your instagram collage...very nice. It is wonderful to have someone that will spoil you...and after all those years of parenting too. :) I think it was fabulous you got a laugh out of the card...I bet you will years from now when you run across it again.

  3. awwww, this is so precious! sounds like you guys had a great day! :)

  4. I had Valentines pancakes too! I think homemade would have been more amazing though. Hahah, love that he only skimmed the card. Maybe he was just thinking about how you guys are going to have a long and happy life, and one day all of that will apply. Or am I giving him too much credit here? ;-)

  5. Great photos darling, happy ♥

  6. awe looks like you all enjoyed a wonderful valentine's day.
