Time Flies!

I have been so busy lately.  Busy doing what?  Living and loving life.  It's that simple.  I really haven't been doing anything too out of the ordinary but having a great time :)  

Today is Valentine's Day.  Us first thing in the morning:
Peter and I both worked all day but we got to see each other for a little bit when he brought me a frosty at work!  It was so sweet and actually had nothing to do with Valentine's Day haha.  The best part was just seeing him :)  I actually gave Peter his gifts last night-2 thermal shirts from Gap and a picture frame collage of 4 wedding pictures of us.  I had been hunting all over for one that I liked but couldn't find one.  Then out of the blue I found one that is so gorgeous with a cherry wood color and it was on clearance for $5!  I was pumped :)  The frame is now on the wall by the entry door of our house.  Here's what it looks like:

I wish they had it in lighter or silver frames because then I'd get some for the bedroom and put some of our vacation pics etc in them.  Maybe I'll keep looking and find some of those!  Peter bought me a very pretty ring from JBR that is being sized right now so I'll get it in a few days.  This is what it looks like though:
He also said that I'll get the rest of my present tomorrow when we get to Chicago so I'm excited to find out what that is?!  We also sent each other corny little apple icards while at work.  I digged up our wedding vows and sent my portion to him with a note that it's the true meaning for our Valentine's Day. :)

Over the weekend we celebrated my birthday and Steph's birthday by having a double date.  We went to the movies and saw "27 Dresses" which was really cute.  It was my pick and I thought it was pretty funny too.  Everyone agreed that they enjoyed it.  Following the movie, we went to Barnes & Noble for about an hour to kill some time before dinner at Bravo's.  Dinner and talking was great, but I was suffering terribly in my back.  Since I've been going to the chiropractor, he's been fixing my "misaligned hip" and boy did it hurt over the weekend!  When we went back on Monday he said that was normal because of the severity of the misalignment and because it affects a central part of my body with sitting, standing, etc.  It feels a lot better now thank goodness!  After a yummy dinner, we went to Eat N Park to talk more and have some dessert.  It was a very fun evening.  I had every intention of capturing some of the evening on film but was too wrapped up in what was going on that I completely forgot.  Oh well haha.  

Aside from chiropractor visits every other evening and our double date, we finally got a good amount of snow this week!  So much that I left work early and it was a messy commute on Tues and Weds.  I loved it though!  I love the snow and am glad we got more than a dusting or 2 inches.  On Tuesday we got about 5-6 inches.  Some of that melted but then Weds we got another 2 inches or so.  Unfortunately it warmed up and was sunny all day today so some more of the snow melted.  

Here's us in the morning bundled up for the snow!

And a few shots of from our front porch:

And Glass Run Road on our way to work:  completely snow covered.

Fun to have snow for Vday! All of ours melted- we got snow Tuesday and it was gone by Wednesday morning. We woke up to sunny blue skies which I was LOVING!!
Happy V-day.
