A V-Day Recap

Since I was returning from Chicago on Valentine's Day afternoon, Matt and I decided that it would be nice to have a relaxing evening at home instead of fight the crowds on the Day-o-Love. That was perfect for me seeing as I got up at 6 a.m. to sit on a bus for 6 hours...and was sans shower and makeup with no intention of doing either.

I walked into our house to find flowers on the counter from my dear husband. Who was cleaning. And doing laundry. Amazing. What a welcome home present!

We exchanged gifts immediately. I got Matt these:

Yes. A Colts snuggie and cowboy boot slippers! He loved them both...however I think I will be stealing the slippers because they are simply awesome. And warm. And they make me look cool.

Oddly enough, Matt's gift to me was also along the same lines.

It's pretty much a snuggie on steroids. You can actually zip yourself into it and the lining is so soft! It is crazy warm and I fee like I'm all wrapped up in a cocoon. The only downfall is that the sleeves are not as long as the snuggie making it a little difficult to raise my arms very high. But it's perfect for just sitting on the couch. Which is what I intend to do whilst wearing it.

So clearly my husband and I like to sit on the couch and be warm. And we both know it. Ha! It just cracks me up that our gifts were so similar!

For dinner we made crab legs and enjoyed them by the fire. And washed them down with Dr. Pepper. In wine glasses. It was lovely.

And we may or may not have tossed the scraps of remaining crab into the leftover butter and made what Matt referred to as "crab butter soup." Don't knock it til you try it people. It was delicious.

Obviously I have spent some time at the gym following this meal. Ha! But it was so worth it.

I am so bummed. I am intrigued by what Matt got you - it looks awesome. And it is also sold out. I am going to have to stalk it until it becomes available again.

And also - those boot slippers are awesome!

I'm almost positive that if you put any type of meat/seafood in melted butter, it will be DELICIOUS. Yummy. I also love that y'all each bought each other laze-around-the-house gifts. Perfect!!!!!
