My 1st Valentine's Day

This is a bit late, but better late than never, right?  I had an amazing Valentine's Day.  I got my hair done as I mentioned before (To Cut or Not to Cut).  I didn't cut it at all (next time I will get the micro-trim), but I added even more blonde highlights for Mexico.
That night we had reservations at Sodo.  It was really amazing.  I am going to bore you with the details, so skip ahead if you want to see the gifts.  We brought a bottle of wine since we had one set aside for a special occasion.  We shared the tempura tiger prawns with the most amazing wasabi sauce and their soup of the day which was a pumpkin soup with roasted poblanos and creme fraiche.  For entree's, I had one of their specials...dark chocolate and espresso short ribs with a parsnip puree and veggies.  My mouth is watering thinging about it.  I wanted to lick the plate clean.  It was that good!  My husband had the hanger steak with a balsamic soy marinate and chimichurri sauce and a poblano potato hash.  His was very good, but not as good as mine.  Since it was Valentine's Day, why not splurge and get two desserts?!  I had the cheesecake and it reminded me of the real deal New York style, not the west coast style that we often get here.  And let me tell you, I love cheesecake and eat it everyday while in New York, so I know a good cheesecake when I taste one.  Hubby got the creme brulee of the day.  Equally as good.
Dinner was a success and I was beyond stuffed when we finished.  My husband bought me flowers the day before Valentine's Day, so I could enjoy them a day more since I left to LA on the Tuesday after.
If you look towards the bottom, you can see my other gift.  These still smell and look great a week and a half later.  Well the roses and lilies do.

My husband also got me a ring from Coach.  Sadly, it was too small (the only size they had left), but I went to another Coach and got the bigger size.  He was super bummed because it was only 1/4 inch smaller than my engagement/wedding rings and the saleslady said it would still fit since they don't have half sizes.  I think he did a great job.
Rose gold with crystals.  Very unique style and I have been wearing it daily since.

I got my husband a new wallet with money clip since his was falling apart and he rarely uses his Ferragamo one (only special occasions).  He thought it may be too small, but I told him that it is the normal size and he doesn't need to carry around every gift card and punch card he has.  He can leave them in his car.  He has used it every since and loves it.

I think Valentine's Day was perfect for our first as husband and wife.  I can't wait for the next 70 plus years (yes we will live to be over 100).

How was your Valentine's Day?
