Last night I had to tell Cody to quit looking at a baby.

At Hooters.

Wait, you didn’t go to Hooters on Valentine’s Day? Pobrecito, because we did. (Cody wanted wings, I wasn’t going to argue.)

Technically the wings were dessert since we ate this before dinner:

That is ICE CREAM FONDUE.

Tiny little scoops of ice cream you dip in melted chocolate, I wholeheartedly support the dipping of tiny little scoops of ice cream in chocolate.

Cody and I had a couples massage today. He fell asleep and started snoring halfway through, I took it as a good sign that at least he was relaxed.

We’ve eaten enough chips and salsa to keep a small vessel afloat, add in all the guacamole? I’m basically cilantro and onion scented until St. Patrick’s day.

We were serenaded on a bus and Cody was slammed face first into the sand when he underestimated a wave and it pancaked him from behind. (Sadly I missed the live version but his reinaction was divine.)

I also purchased the most surprised nativity set ever made. Cody says Mary doesn’t look as surprised because she knew what was going on, the wise men however? SHOCKED. (Bonus points if you can spot the smug lamb.)

I now own the most surprised nativity set IN THE WORLD.
There’s an extra lady in the set, we’re not sure where she fits into the story, but she’s holding a basket so we figured she’s the Relief Society president and she brought bread.

This was probably the best Valentine’s ever, surprisingly it wasn’t the turquoise water, chocolate fondue, massages, or white sandy beaches that made it the best ever.

Cody offered to nudge all the iguanas out of the way for me, it was probably the most romantic thing he’s ever said to me.

Being in love is an awful lot of work, but it sure is worth it.

  1. The bit about the nativity scene made me *actually* LOL. :) And the smug lamb reminds me of the “not impressed” meme that went around with the USA gymnast last summer (do you know what I’m talking about?). Anyway, too funny. Glad you’ve had such a great time!!

    @Stacey @ Tree, Root, and Twig, Oh my gosh…. ht at lamb is TOTALLY “not impressed”!!!

  2. That fondue looks, in one word, AMAHZING. (see Penny from Happy Endings for proper pronunciation) Glad you two had such a special day of love. You deserve it!

  3. Favorite line:
    There’s an extra lady in the set, we’re not sure where she fits into the story, but she’s holding a basket so we figured she’s the Relief Society president and she brought bread.

    So true. It’s probably flatbread, with some olives, and some stuffed grape leaves because you KNOW those men didn’t think about who was going to get and make the food, and gold is good and all, but you can’t eat it. That extra lady is the angel in disguise. Manna from heaven and all that.

  4. I loved the Nativity description, best ever!! My husband would love Valentine’s day from Hooters, we have done takeout before, but he loves their wings, haha.

  5. I am in love with the smug lamb

  6. I can get behind hooters, even on Vday. I’m a girl with a passion for wings. What can I say?

  7. Que bueno. It appears that your vacation was wonderful.

    I have a smile on my face. Good for you two. Very good.

  8. I’m going to run right out and buy some random female figurine to add to our Nativity scene because I now have a testimony that the Baby Jesus needs a Relief Society president bringing bread.
    It just feels so right.
    Dang, I love you.

  9. do i have to go to cancun to get ice cream fondue? cuz i NEED some of that!
