The Love Pavilion

For Valentine's Day Clint gave me the traditional heart-shaped box of chocolates and mini-roses. Of course, as mentioned last entry, those were last minute "Oh crap" gifts due to the fact that he found out I got him something. But I don't mind. :)

The best part of our day was about two hours ago. Clint cooked us a really nice dinner, and we had the kids serve us, as if we were in a restaurant. The dinner was delicious: shrimp scampi, rosebud potatoes, veggies, blackberry merlot, and strawberry shortcake for dessert. And the kids were so darn cute. They took their role very seriously, even giving our so-called restaurant a name: "The Love Pavilion." I was cracking up when Elijah came up to our table wearing a little clip-on tie, ready to take our order with a giant green crayon. When he left the table, he and Trinity bowed, like waiters might in a formal restaurant. Then Elijah complained, "Trinity, you're a girl. You're not supposed to bow, you're supposed to tootsie." We laughed so hard.

Now Clint and I are playing Quiddler, but his turns are taking so darn long that I am typing this entry while waiting for him to lay down a card. Yaawwwwnnnnn.


  1. It sounds like you had a nice Valentine's Day!

    I'm a little jealous that you have a husband who can cook. All mine can do is set things on fire and make concoctions no one would come near with someone elses fork. Although, he's got boiling eggs down to an art, and he can make crescent dogs... which he normally, sadly under-cooks!

    When I asked him what he wanted to eat for Valentine's Day dinner, he said, "Manicotti." I refused that suggestion, manicotti is a pain in the ass. lol. So, we had pasta, just something different.

    Anyway, glad to hear you had a nice one. :)

  2. Don't feel too bad Kristyn. My husband CAN cook (a lot better than me!), but he RARELY does.

  3. Clinton cooks AND plays games AND runs out for last minute gifts? I seriously need Damien to spend some time with him. He no cook, no play games, and almost neva' buy presents. But at least he walks around for a day or two post holidays looking guilty, lol.


Thanks for your comment!
