This year I don't hate Valentines Day

For the past 3 years I have pretty much dreaded, despised and cursed Valentines day. Being single will do that to you. This year however, I am not single! I am dating a great guy who is a planner with a super romantic side. Everybody now "Awwww!"

I will actually be out of town for Valentines day so the boyfriend and I decided we would celebrate early. We both agreed to get all of our homework done in advance so that we would have no distractions and to spend all day Sunday together.

To start the day off right, the boyfriend made me breakfast. Yes this is my "Goldenrod" ghetto kitchen. I only wish you could see the push button stove better.

After our hearty breakfast of steak, eggs and Ego Waffles we got ready to head up the mountain. Around 10 AM the boyfriend walked into the bathroom to see what was taking so long. "You do realize we are going skiing right?"
Flabergahsted I replied "Don't you even know me at all?" then turned to put another coat of mascara on.

We made it up to The Canyons around 11ish. The boyfriend turned out to be an excellent skiing buddy (although he is a boarder), and not just because he carried my skis for me from the car to the tram (which was excellent), but because he is so incredibly fun to be around. We ended up having a great time, even though he did have the nerve to throw snowballs at me. The weather was a little snowy but not too cold and we never had to wait in line for longer than a couple minutes.

After skiing we headed back to get cleaned up. The boyfriend made dinner reservations at Log Haven wich was unbelievably good! I had never really been there before. We had a corner table that overlooked the beautiful mountains. The service, the crab cakes, the wine, the steak and lobster - it was all fantastic. I am drooling just thinking about it again. And of course the company completed it all.

I seriously couldn't have asked for a better (early) Valentines day. This man, the boyfriend, I think I am going to have to keep him around for a while. He is starting to get to me and for once it is not a scary thing.

Blogfully yours,

For a man you immortalized as ED, he does seem like a keeper.

Super cute! Did you do the duo deal at The Canyons?

We're back up to the Mill Creek Yurt this weekend (with 6 other ppl). I still haven't figured out any good Valentine ideas except a card listing things I love about him. Budget-minded suggestions welcome!

weird isn't it? not being sad about v day. I'm still getting used to it myself, to a man who gives me a card with a MESSAGE inside that says he can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together. wow.
