Happy Valentine’s Day!

This evening we went out to celebrate Valentine’s Day! We talked about grandiose plans and expensive dinners. But instead, we just stopped at new favorite placeΒ Northside Distilling to try one of their special Valentine’s Day cocktails

Genifer ordered The Bless Your Heart…

And I ordered The Dudette. Don’t judge me. It was delicious…

Then we headed back to Northside and stopped at Chameleon for a couple of cheese pizza slices and BBQ chicken wings. We’re not fancy…

Chameleon’s pizza and wings are both out of this world! Sometimes the best Valentine’s Day plans are the simplest. πŸ˜€πŸ’πŸ₯ƒπŸ•β€οΈ

Deskey Secret Valentines.

We drew names at work for Deskey Secret Valentines. I drew our proofreader, Susan and here are the valentines I made for her…

I was just going to do the little photo of her dog Jack who is a pretty funny little dog. He reminds me a lot of Oscar. But then I was looking at Pinterest and saw these other ideas that I thought were pretty cute as well. The inside of little card said, “Thanks a LATTE for all you do.” And inside the dynamite sticks were stacks of Reese’s mini peanut butter cups. Pinterest is awesome for getting ideas for stuff like this.

Here’s the Deskey Secret Valentine that I received…

I got this awesome little owl made out of seashells…

And that means the seashell bunny I got from the Deskey White Elephant gift exchange a couple of years back has a new best friend…

Deskey Secret Valentines are pretty fun. πŸ˜€πŸ¦‰πŸ°β€οΈ

Valentine’s Day blooms.

The Valentine’s Day flowers I got Genifer are really beginning to bloom…

As it the Valentine’s Day Koala she got me…

Have you ever wondered…

What they do with all the Valentine’s Day balloons the day after Valentine’s Day?

I’ve never really thought about it either until we stopped at the grocery today. And I saw a guy gathering up all the unpurchased Valentine’s Day balloons. I wonder what happens to all of them?Β πŸ˜€πŸŽˆβ€οΈ

Happy Valentine’s Day!

We hope everyone has a Happy Valentine’s Day.Β πŸ˜€πŸ˜β€οΈ

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day

We went back to Django Western Taco for Valentine’s Day. We wanted to indulge in their Valentine’s Day menu.Β But unfortunately, you had to have reservations in order to get the special Valentine’s Day menu. So we just had a couple of tacos along with some chips and salsa instead. It wasn’t exactly the Valentine’s Day dinner we imagined but it was still a pretty great one. πŸ™‚

Northside Yacht Club.

We ventured up into Northside to check outΒ Northside Yacht Club for for the first time and maybe get our Valentine’s Day brunch on…

We shared a Valentine’s Day brunch of bacon pancakes topped with bacon served with bourbon infused Ohio maple syrup and home fries.Β The pancakes were delicious and that syrup was out of this world…

NSYC is a pretty awesome place, and everyone there was so nice and friendly. We really can’t wait to go back to try one of their Sunday Brunch Bloody Marys. They were topped with a pulled pork slider, chicken wing, bacon and a pickle and looked absolutely amazing. The drink that eats like a meal. πŸ™‚
