Hello to you! How was your weekend + Presidents Day? We had a great last few days, with a lot of productivity and relaxation! Let’s get into some Marvelous in my Monday hosted by Katie!
We had a very low key Valentines Day, but did give each other cards, and I got roses and homemade chocolate covered strawberries!
I had really ambitious plans to get to the gym that night, but the weather was amazing and coworkers wanted to go to happy hour at 4pm… I couldn’t resist! Had two glasses of wine, then headed home to grab dinner. At about 9pm, met my love out in Clarendon (he had been at a work happy hour as well). We stayed out until around midnight, but went home to hit the hay!
After being up kind of late, we slept in and lounged around until it was time to head to my parents house to help out. They are in the process of getting their house ready to sell, so we were chipping in to get things done! Tulips I got my mom for V-Day, they were quite beautiful!
I got to spend time with the nephew which was priceless
Later that day, hubs-to-be and I headed to Melting Pot for our Valentines Day celebration!
We did the four course valentines day special, and it was awesome!!
[the cheese course] We did the fiesta cheese which comes with veggies, bread, apples, and tortilla chips.
[the salad course] I got the California which was mixed greens, candied walnuts, gorgonzola cheese, and a vinaigrette dressing.
[the meat course] We got the cupid’s special which came with lobster tail (!!!!), filet mignon, angus steak, teriyaki steak, shrimp, and chicken… and unlimited vegetables!
[the lobster tail… pretty presentation!]
[the dessert course] I would be lying if I said this wasn’t my favorite course… we got a ‘turtle’ chocolate dip which had chocolate (obvi), caramel, and nuts. Then to dip in it, we had strawberries, banana, rice krispies, pound cake, and cheese cake… it was heavenly!
Overall, dinner was amazing!! We were tucked back in a two-person booth and it was quite romantic
[sunday + monday] sunday we spent working out, running errands and hanging with family! Monday I had coffee with my best friend, lunch with my love, and did a LOT of cleaning and rearranging! I’m loving our new set up in the apartment!
Time for bed, since it’s back to work tomorrow! Hope you had a great last few days!
