A romantic day with the Mr.

We had such a lovely Valentine's Day.
I stayed up late and got everything ready for the next morning. I set my alarm for 6:30 to make sure I woke up on time. I got up and began making these lovely things...
and some not so lovely...

We ate together, then I rushed off to work and school.
When returning home, the spare key was wrapped in a sticky note that said
"use the headphones honey"

I was so excited. I rushed in, and a table was set out in front of me with a DARLING bouquet of flowers, a piece of paper, headphones, and a CD.

I know I look gross. I had just woken up from a nap and wasn't feel well.
Is that a good enough excuse to look like this on V-day? :/

I later found out that Derek wrote and recorded the song in the few hours while I was at work, then he rushed off to school. Seriously, he is the most talented person ever. I tried uploading it as a video but that didn't work. Anyone know how to load a song from itunes to a post? Shpanks.

He arrived home. I was so giddy and in love. We hugged. We snuggled. I gave my gift.

Fingerprints galore. Not sure why it looks like that.

I had spent the last couple months making our 2010 photo book. I am so excited to have our first scrapbook complete.

For dinner, Derek ordered Cafe Rio take-out, and brought it home to have a candlelit dinner with his valentine, Frank Sinatra, and Michael Buble. It was so romantic and so lovely.
I am so in love with my valentine.
We ate, we danced, we ate some more, we shared secrets, we shared memories.
It was the most romantic evening.
PS...I wore my new favorite shirt all day.
