Our kind of crazy

Valentine's Day is weird to me.

I'm the kind of girl who shows up to the cities "four star restaurants", 10 stages below 'dolled up', and dines to my hearts content on martinis and sliders. Anyone care for a lesson in humility?

Needless to say, the whole 'gussy up and enjoy impossible-to-hear conversation in a packed house of Valentiners for overpriced heart-shaped meals' isn't exactly my thing. And when LT confessed that this was his first true Valentines day, I decided he definitely didn't need to succumb to that torture.

I threw out the idea of a non-schmoozy Valentine's celebration. Perhaps a night in, which evolved into cooking dinner together, which ultimately settled upon homemade pizzas and building a fort.

(When you don't have a rolling pin, you get resourceful)
Armed with an air mattress  every spare sheet and blanket in my house and a few strands of Christmas lights we set to work.



A little bit goofy? Maybe. But it was laid back, and chill. It was our kind of crazy. It was just us. One chicken ranch pizza, some Matthew McConaughey movies, the coziest fort and a box of girl scout cookies later... I was in Valentine'd bliss.




And yes, said fort is still engulfing my living room. I think Holly was right when she informed me it looked like a "forever fort"

I think that sounds like a perfect Valentines day. Mine and the hubs was very similar. We picked out a new recipe, went to store, came home and cooked together while sharing a bottle of wine, and then fell on the couch, comatose, from eating too much...Mexican stuffed shells are to die for, btw...

What a GREAT night! That sounds like something Lobster and I would do!

I think Valentine's Day is all about spending time with the one you love. No matter where you are or what you are doing. And I couldn't think of a more perfect spot than a fort!
