Happy Valen-times day

Okay. So I lost the cable that attaches my camera to my computer, probably at the JLC when we went to see the London Knights play. Don't ask me how I lost it, I just did. So I bought something new, it's a card reader that plugs into the computer and doesn't take up any of the battery power of the camera in order to download the pictures. Pretty cool, eh?

Well, the point of this is to say that yes I will be uploading more pictures from now on, and I'm very sorry for the slow arrival and boring content of the past few posts. (Except for the post about Beanie... who's not excited about that?)

Today is Valentine's day. I don't really care all that much about the "romantic" holiday, I think it is just an excuse for shopkeepers to jack up the prices of their chocolates, cards and flowers. I prefer if my husband shows me love every day of the year, not just one. And vice versa.

That being said, I was totally psyched about this Valentines!!! Only because Tyler was working, and I was off, so I could prepare a special surprise for him.

I made fondue. Woo hoo!
We got a fondue and chocolate fondue set when we were first married, but we've never ventured to use them. I decided today would be a good day to try it out.

I woke up at 7:30 this morning, thinking that would be plenty of time for me to get everything ready before Ty came home at 12:00-ish. I guess I didn't factor in the "I'm tired and pregnant" thing, because 12:00 rolled around and I still wasn't ready.

Hey! Don't laugh, I did clean my house, too. There was a lot to do.

Anyways, I just had Tyler close his eyes and camp out in the living room, playing hockey on Playstation, until finally everything was ready.

And it was so worth it. Fondue is just so good.

Now that we've broken in the fondue set, I think we'll use it a bit more often than, well, never. I'm going to try to do a cheese sauce fondue next time, with vegetables to dip in it. Yummy!

What did you do for your Valentine this year?


  1. That is so sweet!! Those are the Valentines I like best...when you do something special for the other person. Chocolates and flowers, nah. Fondue?! Hooray!
    And the pregnancy tired thing made me laugh! For me, it made me finally understand what Mom went through.

    I cleaned my house today. Hooray! I did get a Valentines card though.....from a handsome, smart and funny blonde guy....ETHAN!!! It was awesome.

  2. I know! It was so special. Tyler was VERY surprised. He had no idea that I was going to do anything special, because I don't make a big deal out of Valentine's Day. But it wasn't really about VD, it was about me loving him.

    I know, I only understand why Mom was so tired now, as I'm doing it myself. And she had a million kids to deal with. I only have dogs. ;)

    Thank you, by the way, for taking that awesome picture of Tyler and me! It's so good! You even got Ty smiling a real smile! :D It's one to get developed, for sure.

  3. Awww!! Such a pretty picture! :) And it only took... what.. 20 tries?? ;)

    Fondue is fun! I'm glad that it went well. What sauces did you have? Did you take a picture of your fondue table?!? I've never done cheese fondue.. and now I probably never will. :( But, it always looked so good.

    And, I hear ya on the tired thing.. yawn. ;)
