we decided to do valentines at home this year. our anniversary is the 13th so we usually combine the two to celebrate. i mean, that's only practical right? but.... i feel like they need to be separated sometimes. we went out to dinner for our anniversary and had zero plans for valentines. i decided to be a corndog and do something special for tanner. you have to understand that i feel so stupid doing things like this. i don't know why, i just do. if i ever wear lingerie, i jump right into bed and hide until the lights are turned off. i just feel dumb trying to be romantic.
since this was our 4th valentines together, i got 4 red balloons and taped little notes on them with reasons of why i love tanner.
i made lobster, tiger shrimp, steamed carrots, and attempted twice baked potatoes. lobster is not as scary to prepare as i thought it would be. it's superrrr easy! and way cheaper than in a restaurant. as far as my attempt to twice baked potatoes.. i failed. tanner loves them and i've never even made a backed potato until i tried last night. i let them bake for an hour and fifteen minutes and they were still hard when i took them out of the oven. sooo i tried to scoop out the potato anyway and ended up just making a mess and threw them away. the rest turned out good though :)
tanners favorite desert is cheesecake. and you can't have a valentine dinner without chocolate dipped strawberries.
i nervously waited for tanner to get home but his smile was worth being a cheese head. he walked in and said "you did this for me?" with a big smile :DDD that paper on the table has a picture of boots tanner wanted but they sadly didn't arrive by valentines. the whole point was to give them to him with a note that said "i'm so glad you walked into my life." i've crossed the line now, haven't i?
