Why is Valentine’s Day the best day ever? Seriously though my dears, it was a wonderful day. I hope you all had fantastic days as well!
My day started EARLY in the morning, mostly because I couldn’t wait to open a package I had from my favorite missionary:) He’s so thoughtful and sweet, and sent me this BEAUTIFUL blazer which was the perfect size! He knows me so well…..it’s kinda crazy! He also sent a puzzle with a word on the back of each piece, that I had to piece together to read the note! What a funny, sweet guy. He’s doing awesome on his mission and I couldn’t be more proud of him!
Then I got up, again, to head over to Drew’s for breakfast. We made some awesome heart-shaped chocolate chip pancakes and strawberries:) You can find the from scratch recipe here.
Drew got me a CHOCOLATE SCENTED teddy bear (adorable right?) Some real chocolate (so I can eat AND smell it:)) and a beautiful poem that he wrote, in a mirrored frame. Basically, he’s the best friend EVER:)
My mama got me an adorable picture book that I guess I wanted when I was younger. I don’t remember it much, but it is so sweet of her. The book is all about coming home, and it made me tear up! I love knowing that I can go home, whenever, and always be welcome. I’m super lucky.
SO then I went to work and ran around all day, and finally after going crazy, the fun night began! Drew and I went on a progressive dinner: this is where you go to a restaurant to get an appetizer, a different restaurant for the main dish, and a different restaurant for dessert! It is a really fun date idea, and I would recommend it!
So we headed to a Chinese place for appetizers, and got dumplings and shrimp (really good! If you’re in Provo I would recommend the Lotus Garden, at least for the appetizers!) Then for our main course we went to The Banana Leaf. Basically the best food I’ve ever had. It’s Sri Lankan food and it is DELICIOUS. There is curry, lots of meat and rice dishes, and even some noodle curries! Drew’s favorite part was the avocado shake, which was actually good!
We headed to The Chocolate Mousse, which is a PIE BAR. Basically, they put the ingredients for pie in different sized glasses. I had an oreo crust with dark chocolate peppermint filling. SO GOOD. I would TOTALLY recommend this place!
Basically Valentine’s Day was a fantastic day filled with people I love. I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day too!
Happy Saturday everyone:)
