Most Creative Husband in the World

Jared wins. Everything. Hands down. No questions asked. As I sit down to start this post, I don't think my descriptions or even my attempt at pictures will do his Valentine's Day surprise justice. It doesn't matter though, I know the memories we made Friday night will never, ever leave my mind.

He is seriously the most creative man ever and never fails to amaze me. Friday I knew I was supposed to stall a little bit so I happily spent some time at Target and waited for the 'all clear' to come home from Jared. Let's just say, there may have been tears when I saw what Jared had been working on all afternoon and evening for me. 

You should know by now that we are outright Disney nerds and aren't afraid to let that be known. If you remember, one of our favorite meals from DisneyWorld last year was in the "Be our Guest" castle. Obviously one of our favorite movies, but the atmosphere and the food were both incredible. We talk about it often and how we can't wait to eat there again one day… little did I know Jared had plans for us to eat there sooner, rather than later.

He completely transformed our lower level into a pretty darn amazing replica of the restaurant and castle. From the pillars and night sky backdrop, to the chandelier, romantic candlelight everywhere, our pals Mrs. Potts and Lumiere, and even the dark West Wing where the enchanted rose was hidden! Oh my gosh, Jared thought of every last detail!

But it doesn't end there, of course! Jared searched and scoured the internet for the closest possible recipes to what we ate in the castle, and I'd say he nailed it! A gourmet filet mignon, pommes frites and even the grey stuff for dessert! 

Is there any detail Jared didn't think of? I highly doubt it! He even had Beauty & The Beast cued up in our DVD player ready to go after dinner. I mean, we couldn't eat in the castle and not pay homage to the movie. My husband is absolute perfection, I swear! I truly don't feel like I deserve him most days. (Hashtag, I'm annoying myself with this gushy post!)

In all seriousness though, this was the most creative, fun way ever to spend our Valentine's Day at home.  Like I said… no pictures or words can truly depict this incredible night and the one truth I know for certain---I'm one lucky gal!
