Which brings us to today. I was totally unoriginal and bought Jay a polo shirt and a tie (both of which look incredibly hot on him, by the way) and a couple little things. He, on the other hand, completely surprised me with a flat, white box.
This picture doesn't do them justice, but pearls are hard to photograph, as I found out. I was so surprised and so pleased—I love pearls. Aren't they beautiful? I wouldn't take them off, even though for most of the day I wore a ratty t-shirt. I felt like a little kid who insists on sleeping with their new pair of shoes. Except that I felt beautiful. And cherished.
Later, we made an amazing dinner. Jay went to Costco and bought some filet mignon (my absolute favorite—I know, I'm high maintenance) and then went to Target and bought a cute little barbeque. I set the table with our china, stemware, and formal placemats and then made cheese biscuits while Jay made a salad and tended the steak and potatoes on the grill.
Note the A.1. Sauce and Brianna's salad dressing: crowing touches. The meal was divine. Mmmm...Steak.
We finished off the evening with the adult session of Stake Conference. It was really good, other than our dinner-induced drowsiness. We came home and ate some decadent Blue Bell chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.
I feel so blessed to have a happy marriage and a husband who really does treat me like a queen. What a fun, beautiful day.
I love you, Baby. Happy Valentine's Day.
