Valentines Day has always been my second favorite holiday of the year next to Christmas  & yesterday was the best Valentines Day I have ever had! But first let me back up a little. When I left work Monday night I had a few errands that I needed to get done for Valentine's Day. I texted Jose that I would be late coming home & he said he would be doing the same. When he finally got home he came in the house holding his neck & told me that someone had rear ended him. He then asked me to come outside to look at his car. And this was outside....

 We had been looking at getting me another car & this is the one I really wanted. We went on Saturday & looked at it and he surprised me with it on Monday (he told me Monday afternoon that the financing fell through and it was a no go to throw me off)! I was sooooo excited & surprised!

Then on Tuesday, Jose already had the day off so I took the day off as well so we could spend it together. We went to Union Station (where he proposed) and walked around the shops. I had never been inside before so it was really fun to see everything there. Jose got me these....


Then we went here....


Jose got the Salted Caramel cupcake & I got the Apple Cobbler cupcake. Mine is still in the fridge waiting to be eaten, but I tasted his and it was delicious! Then we went to the mall & walked around for awhile and went to Outback for dinner. Jose wanted to go to Dean & Deluca's to pick up some groceries so he could cook me dinner, but I didn't want him spending all day in the kitchen so I opted to go out instead. After dinner we came home & passed out on the couch. :) It was the perfect romantic & relaxing day.

Also, when Makenna woke up for school Tuesday morning this was waiting for her....

Makenna V-Day Gift on the R

As a child growing up, my parents always gave me a gift on V-Day and that memory is still very special to me so I wanted to continue the tradition with Kenna. I filled her bag with little goodies like lipgloss (which she loves, she takes after her mama on that one), body spray, chocolate, etc. I also got her an adorable stuffed Dachshund that looks just like Oscar. :)

I'm so blessed to have been with two of the people (and my two furbabies) that I love more than anything in this world on V-Day & that's what really made the day extra special for me. I hope that you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day as well & spent it with those who mean the most to you.
