Valentines Suprise

I am sure everyone can relate when I say that going out to a nice restaurant on Valentines is a joke! Did Saint Valentine set requirements that EVERYONE must go out to an OVERpiced and OVERcrowded meal, buy OVERpriced roses(that will be 75% off the next day) and eat OVERpriced chocolate (I wish he would have set the chocolate requirement...I would be more than happy to oblige.)

Due to the reasons mentioned above and because I had to work until 8:00, Quinn and I decided to spend valentines night in the comfort of our own home and to celebrate valentines day the following weekend when the prices and crowds had calmed down. That being the situation, when I got off work at 8:00 I was looking forward to getting home, putting on my sweats, and chowing down on a turkey avocado sandwich. Quinn, on the other hand, had other plans and this was what I saw when I walked in the door! My sweet amazing husband had been scheming behind my back and had cooked up a batch of amazingly aromatic coconut curry accompanied with a strawberry spinach and mushroom salad complete with candied walnuts (which he is very good at). The meal was eaten by candlelight backed with romantic music! Needless to say, I was speechless and felt very outdone (I thought we were celebrating later!). I am very thankful to have such a sweet amazing husband who will slave over the stove just to see a surprised look on my face. I love you big guy!
