our valentine's day {2012}

Our Valentine's Day was pretty low key this year. 
I ended up working an extra shift at work and Chris was buried in his thesis. Romantic, huh? ;)
Buuut...we went out to eat last Friday to celebrate because we knew the crowds would be crazy on Tuesday night. The meal was delicious but was even more wonderful because we had a $20 giftcard AND the waitress comp'ed Chris' tea and our dessert. She got herself a good tip! ;)

We don't normally do big gifts for V-Day, but in one of our many trips to Home Depot in the past few weeks I spotted this beauty.
We had talked about replacing our living room rug for a while and I fell in love with this one!
We quickly decided to give this to each other for V-Day. I know I said we don't do big gifts....but it was an excuse to replace the rug. :)

So this is before...
(pic from when we moved in June '10)
I love the color red. I really liked this rug, but it was around during the house-breaking days with Scout so it had a few "stains" and a couple holes where Scout had eaten the shag. (In his defense...I think we had dropped some crumbs and he was just thoroughly cleaning up our mess!)

Here is the new one!

Sidenote: I cleaned Scout's toys and he had dragged them back out in the 30 seconds it took for me to climb in the chair!

What do you think?
I love that it's lighter, so it brightens up the room a lot AND that it's bigger. To me the room feels bigger too. I'm a little anxious about getting it dirty now because it's a light color, but so far so good. :)

Looking over these pictures, I realized I never blogged about the chair Chris' cousin gave us!
We went to help them move a few months ago and they offered us this chair!! Heck yes! We obviously took it off their hands!
As soon as we got it home and sat in it a few times it started flaking the leather stuff, but it's so comfy! 

That's our exciting Valentine's Day! I am so blessed to have a husband who shows his love every day rather than one day a year. :)
