Remember when we opened our Christmas gifts super early?
Yeah, we definitely did the same thing with our Valentine’s gifts. I think this is the first time we’ve ever gotten each other anything for V-Day? I wasn’t that thrilled about the whole thing while we were in a LDR (for what seemed liked FOREVER), but now I’ll take any excuse to celebrate!
Here’s Boyd J., modeling Kevin’s gift to me:
That would be the Kindle Paperwhite!! Awwa!!!! Just in time for our vacation. I must confess, I haven’t read anything on it yet because I’ve been in the middle of some good library books! I’ll need to stock up BIG TIME before our trip. I love that he bought me a Kindle — I probably never would have. I’ve been thinking about it forever, and the one hand, I wanted one — but on the other hand, now that we have a house, I kind of want to collect actual physical books! They’re pretty!!
The paperwhite is my fave because I’m not really crazy about tablets – the iPad just sits around when Kevin isn’t home unless I’m using it for something in piano lessons. I just want to read!
Anyhow, I teach until 7:30PM+ so we don’t have any big plans for V-day, except maybe some Chinese. I don’t even like to go out at all on busy restaurant days, but we’re thinking our usual spot won’t be busy. It never is, actually. Haha.
- baby spinach
- 1/2 sweet potato
- hardboiled egg
- red onion
- Applegate Organics Spinach & Feta Sausage
- Drizzle of Bolthouse Farms Yogurt Ranch
- salt & pepper
I’ve had this twice already this week! I should probably find a way to add a few more vegetables, but it’s already better than my go-to plate of Alexia sweet potato fries!
By the way!
I tried the “baked” hardboiled eggs method! I followed these super complicated (hahaa) directions, and they came out perfectly! I’m so happy!! I guess I found it intimidating to hard boil them the normal way? All the boiling and the timing — it was just too much pressure! I love this method so much! Now I want to get one of those little egg slicers.
Another thing I’m selling today (haha) is this set of sheer lace polka dot curtains I bought the other day on Amazon for $12.99! For two! I hate how they sell curtain panels individually. That’s so lame. We had the ugliest green curtains from the previous owners still in the bathroom, and it was time to replace them. The windows are frosted, but since they are pretty big it just seems weird without curtains!
Off to teach some eighth notes!!
Do you have a Kindle or other e-reader? Do you use it a lot? Or just for travel and whatnot?
Are you giving any Valentine’s gifts? I forgot to say that Kevin just got some stuff from J.Crew, including a “springy” green shirt.
P.S. Dogs driving cars!
