Happy Valentine's Day!  It's been a great excuse to decorate our home in lots of pink, cheesy chalkboard sayings, drink from cute straws and have fresh fresh flowers and I will miss it. 

Dustin and I had our Valentine's Day dinner last night at Salty's on Alki.  It is hard to be disappointed with a dinner view of the Seattle skyline, Great Wheel and the Stadiums.  Our wallets were also a bit happier knowing we avoided the pricey menus that only offer a limited selection.

We started out with a calamari appetizer and ordered a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.  One day I swear we will actually learn the proper way to taste the wine when the waiter pours it for us.

Warm bread kept us full until our dinners arrived!  Seafood stuffed shells for me and the Captain's platter for Captain Dustin.  It was fun to reminence about all of our valentine's dates in the past, some impressive and others not so impressive.  The one that gave us the best laugh was our date at Kim's Teriyaki in Spokane after Dustin spent most of the night studying.   I think Dustin lived at the Engineering building at Gonzaga University.  Oh the things you go through when you start out dating at a young age with zero funds.  Our favorite dates included ones where we cooked a meal for the other and the time I gave Dustin a Monopoly board game that still remains unopened.

We skipped on dessert because we thought going to the ice creamery up the street from us sounded much more fun!  You can't lose with Husky Deli ice cream!  We closed the place down and had to leave once the closing lights started flashing.

Tonight we are planning to watch movies and cook breakfast for dinner.  I am so pumped!  I am also giving him this candy flower vase!
