Good Morning! I hope y’all had a fantastic Valentine’s Day. We’re in Venice for the weekend hanging out and bumming around with the parents.
We got here Friday night and I baked some watermelon cupcakes but just for this special occasion, I made them in this shape:
Here’s a side note on that thought. If you bake cupcakes and put them in a big tupperware container and then place them upon the dining room table, it is wise not to leave your spoiled, and unruly dogs home alone for several hours. You will come home to find the tupperware container on the floor with some very jacked up cupcakes still inside and possibly green icing on the floor. Well, except for what leaked out and the dogs ingested.
Fortunately, tupperware was developed to withstand nuclear attacks on small countries so the damage was minimal but good times all the same. It never gets boring here. At least we can say that!
MacGyver gave me my Valentine’s day present on Friday night. We don’t always make a big deal out of Valentine’s day but this year he got me a little something. In case I haven’t mentioned it before, I have a hard time waiting on presents, (if I know I have one coming), and Friday night was no exception. In order to avoid my pain in the ass, incessant nagging MacGyver gave in…
I didn’t have any sapphires, and now I have sapphires and diamonds! I love them. And I love MacGyver even more. He knows he doesn’t have to buy me jewelry, but when he does, he really buys me jewelry!
On Valentine’s Day, I got up early and ran 4 quick miles on the Legacy Trail. It was quick and relatively uneventful except for the huge bunny that ran across the trail in front of me. For a minute, I thought it was Easter.
After my run, we headed down to Englewood, Florida to look at a house.
Nice view huh?
After house shopping we hit up Flounder’s for a late lunch and early Valentine’s day dinner. It was delicious but even better is the atmosphere at this killer little place on Manasota Key. It is obviously the place to go. I kid you not, even the Mayor was there.
Check out the shoes on the fence in the back. It’s a cute idea but did those people actually leave without their shoes?
The band was a local reggae band and they were pretty good.
They even have corn hole tournaments in the front of the restaurant. If you’re ever in the Englewood, Florida area, this place is a must! Trust me.
After dinner we all came home to relax and I gave MacGyver his present which he was able to share with everyone.
And now we’re all in a sugar induced coma and headed to sugar rehab.
See ya Monday!
How did you spend your Valentine’s Day?
What did you do this weekend?
