A wonderful evening!  
Mark & I just got back from our Valentine's Day dinner at Musashi (a nice Japanese Restaurant at the Hyatt). Aside from the wonderful food (lobster and misoyaki butterfish - YUM!) the atmosphere was so romantic! The Hyatt holds a special place in our hearts (since we were married there 6 years ago) and we try to spend all of our special occasions there. :)

Here's a photo of us with our decadent chocolate brownie dessert! (YUMMY!) :)

When we got home, we decided to do our gift exchange. :) Mark got me a beautiful bag from Dooney & Bourke! I was SO shocked because it was the very same one that I was looking at when we went shopping on my birthday! Not only was it extremely thoughtful of him to get it for me, but it proves that he really pays attention to things that I do! And I think that was the best part of the gift (though I do love the bag!) ;) Gotta love him! :D He's the most thoughtful hubby ever!

Of course, I ended up getting him something game related. ;) Since I knew that he was planning on buying and a Playstation Portable, I got him a GC for GameStop so he could go in and put a reservation on one. :) He was pretty excited, especially because he was planning on going down on Monday to reserve it. :)

All in all it was a very nice Valentine's Day weekend. Due to work and the exhaustion that usually goes along with it, this year we decided to skip the formality and celebrate it early. :) Hope you all have a nice day tomorrow! :D *HUGS*

It was so sweet of him! :D It's a brown bag with a long strap... it's hard to explain. It's kind of small, but I love it. :)

That brownie thing at Musashi was so good last night! :) The best part of the meal was that dessert! :D

Thanks, Smitha! Mark is very sweet! :D ANd the icon photo was taken LONG ago at one of the Jaycee conventions (can't quite remember which one - they all sort of meld together in my mind nowadays) ;)

What an adorable picture!

I love, love, love your hair like that, too.

Awww, thanks Amanda! My hair keeps getting lighter and lighter each time I highlight it, before I know it, it'll be blonde. ;)

Yay for romantic Valentine's Days!!!! :) I love it when Joe pays attention and shocks me with something like that. Makes me feel so loved.

That dessert looks really, really good. (I need chocolate.)

I think it wasn't so much that I loved the gift (which I did), but it was the fact that Mark took the effort to put thought into what he got me that made the gift that much more special. :D He's the best!

And the dessert was wonderful! I hope you get to eat your chocolate today! :D
ajayne on February 14th, 2005 04:52 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's what I mean... when you mention something in passing and then he really was paying attention to get you what you really wanted. :) It is totally that he put thought into it.

I don't think I will get chocolate today... as I am trying to stay away from it. But I could *really* use some. :D

It sounds like you had such a wonderful VDay! You are so lucky. =) (And that dessert looks TERRIFIC.)
Sheri: Familyshutterbug93 on February 14th, 2005 04:49 pm (UTC)
It was very nice - but the best part was just getting to spend the evening with Mark! :) I do feel very blessed to have Mark in my life, he's so wonderful. :)

The dessert was so delicious! Oreo chocolate brownie, mac-nut ice cream, with chantilly sauce. :) YUM! :)

I think it's great that you guys have a place that will always give you such an everlasting memory. I really like that picture of you and Mark. What a sweet guy you have to pay attention and remember. Tommy does that sometimes too. :) We celebrated a little earlier too. I may cook a nice dinner tonight though, seeing as we can't go to our place (Las Vegas) on short notice. ;)
Sheri: Mark & Sheri 1999shutterbug93 on February 15th, 2005 07:26 am (UTC)
Tommy does indeed sound romantic :) and it was so sweet of him to get you those beautiful flowers! :D It is lovely to have a special place - and your special place happens to be one of my favorite places too. :D

Happy Valentine's Day, Carrie! And Happy Anniversary to you and Roger! :D I always feel so lucky to have met Mark - he's truly my soul-mate and I know that Roger is yours. :D

That dessert looks delicious *drooling*. I shouldn't have looked at the photo at all. Or rather, I should have just looked at you two and not let my eyes to see that dessert at all...

Into had a wonderful Valentine's Day: He got to mate again. It went well and we hope for many puppies. The first litter will be born in the beginning of the March (and this litter, if she gets pregnant, mid April). I will let you know when there are photos to be seen somewhere.

The dessert was delicious, but very bad for my diet! ;)

Sounds Into is doing great! :) I'd love to see the photos of his off-spring when they're available - they must be precious! :D

Awww, thanks Tom!! :) That's so sweet of you to say! :D Happy Valentine's Day to you and Amanda!! :D
