Today is All About Love

Happy Friday and Happy Valentine's Day to each and every one of you! Today is a day all about love, in all forms- so instead of completely grossing you all out with the mushy "I love my hubby" stuff, I thought I'd share with you all the things I'm loving right now, and today especially.

(Okay, I lied-- just a little mushy stuff, I'm sorry, I'm sorry!) Jared is planning an at-home date night for tonight and I cannot wait to get home tonight for a romantic night in. He's been super secretive and excited about tonight, so I'm looking forward to see what he's planned for us!

Blogger friends turned real-life friends. Last night I got to have dinner with the sweet Allison from Nestful of Love. Who knew when we went on our first 'blate' over a year ago we'd be meeting up regularly and chatting like old friends. 


In addition to having great conversation… I had my first-ever Chuy's and oh.my.gosh. Ohio has been severely missing out. That was the best taco salad I've ever had in my entire life! And don't even get me started on the Cilantro Vinaigrette dressing! I will be visiting again soon and making Jared try it… I'm sure he won't complain ;)

Blogger friends who send way-too-adorable-and-generous gifts as a thank you for revamping their blogs! Sweet Kelsey sent me the best goodies ever yesterday. She must know me pretty well because notebooks and fun pens are right up there with Christmas and birthdays on my list of things I love.
This year! I seriously feel like I'm grinning ear-to-ear every day lately. I have so much to be thankful for and truly just feel joyful every day. What a refreshing feeling it is! I hope it never leaves.

Upcoming travel plans! I cannot wait for a change of scenery, especially since we're getting MORE snow today. I think it's safe to say most of the country is sick of the 'blah' weather and ready for some flowers and sunshine.

Losing weight! I'm finally getting there, slowly… very slowly. But if that's not something to love on Valentine's Day, I don't know what is!

What are you loving this Valentine's Day??

  4. CONGRATS to you, Hot Stuff.. for losing weight!!!!! All your hard work is paying off and while I'm not only jealous but I'm wishing you were local so I could have some inspiration and someone to work out with. While I'm not a "mushy" person, I can totally handle anything mushy you say to/towards Jared because I admire your relationship with him..
    PS- I'm jealous of your blate and I'm eating your Taco Soup for breakfast (well, your recipe). XOXO

  5. Keith usually plans valentine's but lately he's been lazy! Just yesterday, after I already got him a goodie or two, he tells me he doesn't want to exchange gifts. Code word for he didn't get anything. We are going to dinner at a new place so I guess we'll see what happens. Have fun, can't wait to see what Jared plans :)

  15. Chuy's is delicious! I love it!

    How exciting that you are having a secret night in! I love staying in on Vday. Things are so overpriced and overcrowded. I think the day is so much more special when you plan your own special night in. I hope you have a very happy Valentine's Day!

  16. Ohhhh a stay-at-home date night! How fun! We're having one of those, too, but more the completely exhausted kind instead of the romantic kind. I'm an old lady! I can't wait to hear what Jared has planned!
