M and I went for our first date on Valentines Day… 14 years ago! I was 17 and he tried to woo me with dinner at The Keg. Unfortunately he didn’t make reservations and the place was packed! We ended up at a Jack Astor’s instead. It probably worked out for the best considering I was a vegetarian at the time 🙂
Being nostalgic, I pulled out the scrapbook I made while we were dating. Here’s a peek at high school Lindsay and M:
Anyway, I received some unexpected Valentines surprises this year:
1. M made reservations for us to go to dinner tonight. While I knew we were doing dinner, I kinda just thought we would end up at the restaurant down the street. Nope! We are going to a legit establishment where M will wear a dress shirt 🙂
2. M bought me a Bose Soundlink Mini speaker. I want to say that we don’t really do gifts but upon further reflection, it turns out that he usually buys me something and I drop the ball. I didn’t even bother with a card, lol. It wasn’t just the present which was a surprise, it was also the delivery. Last night we were playing hide and seek and I was in what I thought was a stellar hiding spot because no one could find me. I actually called the house to see if M wanted to to come out! Rather than looking for me, turns out he was setting up the speaker! I probably wouldn’t even have noticed it was set up until L said something. I’m pumped because this little itty-bitty speaker now replaces a huge sound system that we had set up and that I’ve been asking M to get rid of for years!
3. M found my bracelet that I was sure I had lost. I was out and about all day yesterday and when I came home, one of the first things I did was wash my hands. Out of habit, I went to push my bracelet up, only to discover it wasn’t there! I was totally bummed because M had given me this bracelet the first Christmas we were together. Well, M found it this morning on the carpet! I guess it had fallen off on my way into the house!
Do you have any exciting plans for Valentines?
