The week in review

I didn't get a chance to write this week so here is a breakdown of a week in our home.

On Sunday, Ryan and I put together the table that we got from IKEA. You have to wonder why they can't just have the tables put together for you. It always seems like those "easy home construction projects" take a lot more time than expected. For the two of us, degree acquired people it took almost two hours! We had to take it apart a couple of times. Pretty embarrassing actually. And what is with the instructions? Some strange looking bubble man with just pictures, no words! I guess it is universal directions. Anyways, below is a picture of the table. I am really happy with how it did turn out. I am planning on going to change the decorations under the glass seasonally. Here is what I did right now, seeing that it was Valentine's Day and all.



Oh and here is a pic of our wonderful fire that roared all weekend. So nice, maybe it will come again this weekend.


We had quite a large snow fall this week. We got about 4-6 inches of snow starting Tuesday. The snow is so pretty - we are finally having a winter.

As you all know, Valentine's Day was Wednesday. This was in the middle of a 3 day stretch of work for me. Ryan and I had decided to celebrate Valentine's Day tonight. I am sooo excited, because we are going to my most favourite restaurant - the Melting Pot http://www.meltingpot.com/ This is a fondue restaurant and it has the best atmosphere ever! We will be there for about 2.5 hours as it takes about that long to have the food. We get three courses - Cheese, Oil, and Chocolate. It is pretty romantic with intimate tables, I just love it! There is something exciting about going out on a date. Even though Ryan and I don't have any children it is still exciting when you have a planned date night. This morning I went out to Kohl's and got myself a new outfit from the clearance racks. 15 dollars for a corduroy skirt and a wool sweater. I love Kohl's clearance Racks. I picked up a gift for Ryan and I still have to wrap it. To top it all off, Ryan is getting out of work today early, so he will be home at 3. The sun is shining it is so pretty today - it is a good day! Below are the flowers that Ryan gave me on Wednesday. They were up in our bedroom when I got home from work. Isn't he great.?

I hope that everyone else had a great Valentine's Day and a great week!
