Valentine's Day 2013

You will never believe what happened to me on Valentine's Day. Mitch had an 8 hour date with someone else. On Valentine's Day. Luckily it wasn't another woman. It was called Step 1. The biggest test of medical school. On Valentine's Day. I can not imagine taking a test for 8 straight hours. I would give up!

Mitch was studying for long hours right up until the test. He was sweet enough to come to the park with us and study.

He even got me flowers before the test day because he knew he wouldn't have time the day of Valentine's. The tulips were "from Rhett" and the roses were from him. I loved that he made Rhett part of the tradition.

Mitch was so relieved to be done and Rhett and I were so proud of him! 

Way to go Daddy! 

We celebrated by opening our Valentine's packages from both of our sweet moms. Rhett got lots of Valentine's from his cousins and second cousins. We missed the annual family Valentine's party. He loved them all. 

"Geez I could get used to this."

"Mommy can I have just a little lick?"

 I got Mitch a cute shirt, and he got me a cute shirt. We think alike. I made him chocolate covered strawberries- my favorite! So in a way I made them for me. Rhett got some noisy maracas and his favorite wagon wheel snacks.

We told Rhett how much we loved him all day. Just like every other day.

The past two Valentine's we went to dinner at Ruth's Chris (thanks to my parent's Christmas present) but with Rhett, I thought I could bring Ruth's Chris to us.

We had yummy steak, au gratin potatoes, rolls, roasted parmesan asparagus, and key lime pie.
It was a tasty romantic candlelit dinner- complete with red lips on the straws.

I love Valentine's Day! 
Especially when I get to celebrate it with my two loves.

Happy Valentine's Day from this hunk!


  1. perfect valentines! love that you cooked your own ruth's chris! rhett is getting cuter by the day, just like his cousin!!

  2. What a wonderful Valentine's Day! You guys do it up right, and Rhett is loving it!

  3. I didn't know you printed out a menu. That is awesome. I love seeing the prices by it. And my favorite part was when you said, "we told Rhett how much we love him, just like every other day." Cute family. I am so lucky to be related to you!

  4. Hahaha I love the fake Ruth Chris menus! The prices are true to life! ;)

  5. so cute! loved your valentines dinner. and rhett, of course.

  6. I wanted to make it known by writing such a thing as this for we are being very uplifted and edified although words do run away from me also. The style does portray a sense of wellbeing and feels extremely family oriented as am I. For here in the West we make it that way
