V-day miracle. For real.

We've all heard of Christmas miracles but on Monday a Valentine's Day miracle happened. 
Husband brought home flowers. 
I just about fell out of my chair when he walked in with these.  Yes they're boring super-market roses (probably $19.99 from Safeway) complete with tacky Baby's Breath but who cares. He actually bought flowers.  Swoon and sigh, he loves me.  
Ooooohkay, of course it does take more then flowers to demonstrate his love but the fact he took the time to buy these proves that he's not completely clueless on Valentines day.  I may have to retract my last post.

{ Photo evidence is always required when documenting a miracle}

We went out for a romantic Valentines Day dinner to a local restaurant called LeVilla.  We inhaled enjoyed several deliciously decadent courses including Saffron Seafood Chowder, Duck Breast and Arugula salad, Oysters Rockefeller, Enoki Mushroom Risotto, Lobster with Black Truffle Hollandaise, Filet Mignon and then dessert (since we apparently weren't completely full yet.)
 And of course we enjoyed several bottles glasses of an amazing Sauvignon Blanc. 
 It was all obscenely calorific.  Yum.

Ingeniously after a few glasses of vino I completely forgot to pull out my camera to snap some pics of our meal.  However I did take a pic of the heart shaped pizza I ordered for the kids from Boston Pizza. They thought it was the coolest thing they'd ever seen and it totally made up for the fact that they weren't allowed to join us for our adult-only dinner.

I hope all you lovelies enjoyed your Valentines Day with the ones you love the most and that you were gifted with something pretty...like a super-market bouquet of flowers.

Dinner sounds fab dear!

I´m so glad you had a great time! I love roses for Valentines´s Day.
My husband forgot the flowers but bought me a watch (I told him about in January). But of course he bought the wrong color LOLOLOL
So I took it back and realized the one I wanted was a little bit cheaper! They gave me the money back and I headed to...H&M. Perfect ;)
