Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope everyone had a very Happy Valentine's Day yesterday!

I have to say that this was the nicest Valentine's Day that I can remember.  Sure, I have fond memories of those parties you had in school where everyone exchanged cards and candy.  I've had some nice dates with previous boyfriends.  Nonetheless, it was a fantastic day that left me smiling as I fell asleep last night.

The boy called to wish me a happy Valentine's Day in the morning.  We had been planning to see the Predators take on the Chicago Blackhawks since we got free tickets (lower bowl! corner! 22 rows off the ice!) through the Preds 5K.  He left it up to me to decide what to do for dinner before the game.

I suggested Broadway Brewhouse since it was two blocks from the arena and we wouldn't have a ton of time to eat before the game started at 7.  I think the boy was pretty pleased with my choice.  We ended up invited his roommate and his friend to join us as we grabbed a round of drinks and a few appetizers.

After dinner, we headed down the street to the arena just in time to see the team come out on the ice.  It was a great game, and Preds won 3-2!  Gnash was even in the Valentine's Day spirit and dressed up as Cupid.

It was definitely a fun way to celebrate the day and spend some time with my Valentine!  I printed a picture of us and used some fun paper to mat and frame it for him.  He was so super sweet and gave me a gift certificate to a spa.  I was so surprised, and I look forward to using it for a nice massage or something!

I hope everyone had as nice of a Valentine's Day as we did!
