It is always tricky to know what to give a guy for Valentines day. Luckily Robby and I prefer a simple celebration, just to enjoy each other. We made dinner together last night and played Wii…pretty awesome if you ask me. We made cranberry chutney pork and asparagus, check out the recipe HERE.
Robby is a simple guy and loved his simple gift. Whiskey & chocolate covered chips was all he needed 🙂
I told him I would take care of it. I told Rob I would fill our new advent calendar with treats and every day we will get to open a door and find a surprises (he has never had an advent calendar before). Apparently all he heard was that he gets a surprise everyday, and he had something else in mind besides peppermint.
I can’t really blame him, but I came home to our calendar filled with treats like Beer, on days he new he would want one. Our advent calendar will now be living in the fridge.
I am loving Thanksgiving more and more each year. I have come to appreciate how simple and wonderful the holiday is. I have been learning the value and of being thankful for the little things and how that attitude can shape a mind. I want a mind that is continually grateful, since after all I truly do have a million things to be thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your turkey coma.
Here are a few wild turkeys I found to start off your holiday!
