Valentine's Day - In Pictures





We decided to DIY this year:
Candlelight steak dinner prepared by him.
Baked mac and cheese side dish prepared by me.
Homemade chocolate covered strawberries prepared by him - SO IMPRESSED!
Some of his favorite cookies prepared by me.

And a few other special surprises for each other.

In one word: wonderful.

The chocolate covered strawberries are quite impressive. Were they a request from you or did he just surprise you with them? Because if they were a surprise, I'm double-impressed. :)

Christa said...

It sounds wonderful!

HE made those strawberries?!? Speechless.

Mac & cheese side dish made me laugh, because hubby and I have an ongoing debate about whether macaroni and cheese can be considered a meal, or if is (as he claims) only a side dish.

Scotty said...

DIY anything is definitely more thoughtful :)

Virginia said...

I am smiling so big right now, that sounds like the PERFECT Valentine's Day!

Looks like a great way to celebrate a special Thursday!

cdp said...

Dude. He's got me on the strawberries. VERY nice.

I heart you, and yet I hate you. But mostly heart.

MLM said...

I must confess, I thought it might be Clancy way before your post revealed it, and I was a tad disappointed. I want you to be happy, but how can a man so apparently willing to devastate you and break your heart ever truly make you happy? I hope he proves me wrong. But I was kinda hoping you'd be like the Lucy Liu character on Cashmere Mafia...hooks up with her ex (the one who dumped her and broke her heart), then the next morning gives back the engagement ring, saying, "Here. I hung onto this hoping you'd change your mind. But now I've changed mine."

Kate said...

Mmm.. cookies and strawberries! Your cookies look divine! Recipe?

Trish Ryan said...

Wow...that makes the meatloaf I made last night look rather pitiful! Okay, it was pitiful to begin with. Next year, I'll plan something with cookies, Hershey's kisses and dipped fruit :)

LADY said...

Very impressive with the strawberries!!

Glad you had such a beautiful day.

Katelin said...

Aw Michelle that sounds like an amazing Valentine's Day! I'm so happy for you :)

Angela said...

Oh my God, yum! I'm sending you my address so you can ship over any leftovers ;)

thestoryofagirl said...

Wow, definitely impressed! And slightly jealous! Looks and sounds like a wonderfully perfect night!

legallyheidi.com said...

looks wonderful! glad you had a fabulous evening!! :)

t.b.f.love. said...

"Wonderful" definitely does sum this up! Chocolate-covered strawberries?! How delicious.

P.S. Baked macaroni & cheese, hm? If you ever have the time, would you mind sending me the recipe you use? I loooove baked mac & cheese (well, really, anything at all with cheese...) and I try every recipe I come across.

Lara said...

GIVE ME CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES OR DIE.

sorry, i've been with two year olds all day and i'm just now getting a break. chocolate would help a LOT right now.

Marriage-101 said...

Those strawberries are impressive! Might i request recipes for each of these items so we can do our own?

The Underpaid Princess said...

Wow! He did a great job! Glad you guys had a wonderful day.

Susie said...

Awww yay. Those chocolate covered strawberries are beautiful! And the cookies...ummm, yum. I realllyyy want one of those right about now!

Katyn said...

after our facebook messaging, i gave the whole nature of "second chances" a lot of thought. and concluded i'd probably do the exact same thing you are and take it slow, because i'm a hopeless romantic and lets face it, i'd take one (well ONLY one) of my ex's back in a heartbeat, solely because of the intense connection that i suspect from reading past posts that you and c have as well.

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

Ok, I just woke up and thisis the first picture of food i've seen all day, and I LITERALLY want to jump inot the screen gaaah looks amazing.

poodlegoose said...

pinksundrops said...

Speaking of exchanging recipes, your kiss cookies turned out PERFECT! Can I have your recipe? Mine were slightly small and we forgot to roll them in sugar!

TaraMetBlog said...

we stayed in too and did the candlelight dinner, but I cooked and we had cupcakes for dessert.

Katie said...

Wow, you're so lucky. I'm glad you had a great Valentine's Day. :)

Hey Michelle - I totally have been behind in reading lately - but I JUST caught up. I hope things are going well with the rekindling, take your time and look after yourself.
