HAPPY VALENTIMES!



the holbrooks have a history of pretty laid back valentine's days. we like to take it easy. no reservations, no tiffany's, no wish lists or hints. just us, our small dude, some studying for the bar, and i'll probably sweep the floor a million times like usual. i think it sounds pretty swell, actually!

but we do try to do a few thoughtful things for each other. brandon's making me dinner tonight, and last night i hand-stitched a little surprise love note into one of his work shirts. (i also bought him a loaf of raisin challah, his favorite).

later tonight i have a real special surprise, if you know what i mean . . . 
yup, we're gonna split a real fancy triple chocolate caramel apple. ohhh yeah.


happy valentimes!

p.s. brandon came home last night with breaking dawn part one.
he called it our "valentines appeteezer."
crap i love that guy.

  7. Staying in together for Valentine's is the best! I can't imagine going out - I'd feel so... conspicuous.

    Have a lovely evening!

  13. Haha that's cute about Breaking Dawn. My husband told me he wanted to watch the latest episode of the Bachelor tonight, so I'm feeling equally lucky right about now ;)

  14. oh my gosh, i'm all about the laid back valentine's for sure! and i can't believe your man got breaking dawn. i tried to hint to the mister, but i don't think he's as willing. ha, oh well. i'll just watch it with the girls instead.

    oh, and that hand stitched trick is just adorable!!

  15. laidback valentone's day is the way to go in book--no roses or big gestures here--just some good food, a film and lots of laughter!

    Love the little note in the shirt--i might try that next year or although my husband isn't known for his observation so he probably wouldn't notice

  16. Oh I love this... so simple yet so personal. That's how we did it this valentine's day, just a chill one. We skyped for a couple hours and opened each other's gifts from afar. I miss that man.

  17. why is it that someone (me) can just read a snapshot of someone's blog (okay, 95% of your posts) and i feel like it's appropriate to add them to my holiday card list and ask them to be my friend? blogging is a scary-fabulous world. no?
