What a [Valentine's] Weekend.

As I mentioned briefly on Saturday, my man-friend put himself on a plane and pointed it towards me for the weekend. As a surprise! Which, I mean, is really the nicest surprise I've ever had since I don't know, I was born. And that is a fact... because I don't really actually LIKE surprises. I try to spoil them to avoid the whole surprise part. For example, once- I had a surprise birthday party, and I literally spun on my heels, walked back out my front door, and burst into tears. And for the record- that was a NICE party, probably the nicest I'll ever have... so yes, I definitely regret crying. But as far as SURPRISES go... well this one didn't make me weep. It was an absolutely perfect weekend and I felt like the most special little lady in the world. So special, in fact, that I plum forgot I even had a blog. Don't worry though- in classic form, I took photos of all the fun details of our Valentine's Weekend. [This includes my surprises for him... which didn't have to go into a box to be overnighted Monday morning... hooray!] I hope you enjoy this rather lengthy [and lovey dovey] post.

Painting my nails during our movie night. He tried his hand at "nail art" [sorry to embarrass you, darling] but we didn't have the right tools [that means we used a piece of wood to try and make polka dots] so I didn't take any "after" photos.

Introducing him to my all time favorite movie, Breakfast at Tiffany's. He liked it [so he says]. I loved it [as usual].

Champagne and strawberries.

FONDUE!! The actual fondue pot was taking too long so we jumped the gun and took it to the stove. Patience is not a virtue when chocolate is involved and also you're a little piggy like me. Oh, and I ate all of the rice krispie treats. :(

Being goofs. As you can see, I dressed for the occasion. Probably a hair tutorial coming soon on that look, for sure.

My joke card + mug for him. I never turn down a good pun. I mean, you likely LOL'd... am I right??

I ate all of these as well. :( At least I have the heart shaped bowl to store jewelry and things now.

What's that? Another pun? He collects a lot of unique antiques so I got him this very uniquey antiquey magnifying class from... Anthropologie. [fail] I had a time crunch, so Anthro Antique is all I could handle!

I am bad at wrapping boxes, but adore cute gifts. I made my OWN "gift wrap" by cutting out hearts and pasting them directly on the box. Turned out adorable and my wrapping skills were not put to the test [though I did suffer a paper cut]. 

His hand-made Valentine. 100 points to whoever can guess the pun I put inside the card... hint: it wasn't entirely appropriate. 

Proof that I a) smile and b) cook. I enjoy this photo immensely because it will forever be remembered as one of the happiest nights of my life. Looks like someone finally melted my ice-sculpture heart. 

**UPDATE: The pun was... One fine piece of ace! (muahaha) I wanted to clarify because my madre thought it was something WAY more inappropriate than that.

Anywho if you've made it this far, thank you for reading! :) And if you hate these blog hiatuses I keep taking, don't forget to LIKE L&L on Facebook for updates when I can't update over here.
