late night valentines.

the mister and i have been together for about 6 years now... and we have never really celebrated valentines day. one of us has always had to work.
this year was no exception. chad had to work all night bringing food and drink to all of the happy couples.
however this year, as opposed to others, we live together! so i was able to have a few valentines surprises waiting for him after his long night's work.


i made fettuccine alfredo a la the pioneer woman. chad wasn't home until around 11 so it was perfect. simple and quick, but delicious.
(i'm still working on making good on my new years resolution. last night was a start.)


after our late night dinner we sipped wine and listened to records in the little valentines fort that i built inspired by the ever amazing design sponge.

it was wonderful.

Oh my goodness I DIE over this! I am so envious of your creativity on this! My first VDay with Dave I made him a fancy homemade meal at my mom's house and used all of her fancy flatware and in her fancy dining room, but this, what you did, is ADORABLE.

Don't hate me if I steal your idea for next year!

I'm glad you two had a lovely Valentine's Day!

holy fort batman. I love. you put our fort to shame...which isnt hard to do since our fort consisted of a mattress on the floor in the living room...we stayed there for like...oh a few months...got too lazy to put the mattress back I guess..and it was the only room with a tv...we said we wouldnt have a tv in the bedroom when we got married...rookie move...rookie move..
