Valentine's Day 2009

On Friday morning I heard this review on NPR for a new album by Willy Nelson and Asleep at the Wheel. From what I heard, I thought that Michael would probably really like it, so I thought I'd get it for him for Valentine's Day. I went to three stores to try to find the album, but ended up buying the digital version from Walmart.com. So I spent $9 of my spending money on his V-Day gift. While I was out yesterday afternoon, my husband made me a slide show of family pictures and had the kids hold goofy signs to tell me Happy Valentine's Day. He even got the dog in on the action!

We had a homemade family Valentine's dinner of fajitas, spanish rice, and chips and guac. Michael used some of his Christmas present (I restocked his liquor cabinet ;) to make margaritas. Kroger had Blue Bell half gallons for $2.99, so we got chocolate covered cherry ice cream, complete with cordial cherry hearts. After we put the kids to bed we cuddled on the couch and watched a movie that we borrowed from the library.
