Malentine's Day 2010

As you all well know by now, Chris and I don't celebrate Valentine's Day.

It's not that we don't like the idea of being romantic and celebrating love for an entire day, it's just that February 14th doesn't work with our schedule.

Too many people, restaurants all booked, prices inflated...we prefer to wait until the first weekend in May when no one sees us coming and then BAM!, we take advantage of normal prices and reservation free restaurants.

Malentine's has (like all things in our life) definitely gone through a metamorphosis over the years.

2007 - Chris proposed and started it all

2008 - Ft. Worth Artfest & Dinner

2009 - Athens, Greece

This year we decided we have enough big things going on so instead of adding to the grandness, we concentrated on just spending time together and laughing.


Brunch at Le Peep.

Chris thought I was kidding when I ordered an appetizer for brunch. After I ordered my meal of sausage, eggs, hash browns and English muffin he was quick to tell me he would eat my leftovers.
Leftovers are no longer in my vocabulary. He's slowly learning this.

We tried to take a walk in a park in Grapevine but the only trail we found ran alongside a major road.
So we made fun of the exercise equipment and then left.

I think I managed to make it 3 hours before requiring another meal.
Outback did not disappoint.
(However our waiter did as a stand-in photographer)

After renting and watching Fantastic Mr. Fox we called it a night (okay, I called it a night), and went to bed.

Another successful Malentine's Day in the books.

Already looking forward to next year.
