Valentines Day 2004

Posted on February 15, 2004 by under Life, Relationship.    

We had a truly eventful Valentine’s Day weekend this year. The festivities began on Friday night when Brian took me to Fingers for salsa night. I didn’t drink much but we think it reacted with the antibiotics I just finished taking the day before. I ended up puking my brains out in the middle of the night and peeing all over Brian’s feet. Picture the two of us buck naked in the bathroom, he’s holding me as I’m vomitting and I guess I just lost control of my “other” bodily function and started peeing. As a reflex, Brian took the only things that were close at hand which happened to be a couple of robes (my robes, mind you) hanging in the bathroom to sop up the wetness. I guess it’s my pee on my robes so I shouldn’t complain. I should just be grateful that he stayed there with me instead of saying “Fuck this,” and leaving me to puke and clean up by myself.

It was already two o’clock in the afternoon when we got up the next day. We decided to have a late lunch at Red Rock (my favorite restaurant now). Remember the hellacious time we had getting in last year? This year, we were smart and got there about ten minutes before they opened. We were actually the first ones seated! It was awesome! Half an hour into our five course meal, people were already piling in. By the time four o’clock rolled around the wait was already an hour to an hour and a half. We were so proud of ourselves!

After lunch we walked off our meal by roaming around the mall. Of course, it was horrible. It felt like Christmas because everyone was doing their last minute shopping for Valentine’s Day gifts. Got some socks at Lady Footlocker, a couple of DVDs from Suncoast, and some blouses at Express. Next stop: home.

We hung out at the house for a while because we had an hour or so to kill before we had to meet Brian’s parents at 13th Ave Warren. The four of us watched the 10 PM balcony showing of 50 First Dates. It was a sold out show because of all of the couples on the movie part of their dates. They actually made an announcement below for all the people to move and sit closer together so that they could fit everyone in the theater. It’s times like that when we are really grateful that we hardly ever watch movies from the cheap seats anymore. I like the idea of reserved seats and personally think that all theater auditoriums should be done that way.

Today we all met at Wal-Mart for some portraits. We got 7 poses and a ton of pictures for just a little over $150. You can’t beat that deal! I think my senior portraits were almost $500 after all was said and done and that was back in 1995 so I was really impressed. Mom and dad were generous enough to include a picture of Brian and me just by ourselves. We get three 8 X 10s and a variety of other sizes. We were pretty stoked about that.

Afterwards, mom and dad treated the six of us (Jason and Jen came to dinner with us also) to dinner at Red Lobster. I wasn’t feeling well but it was still really yummy! I had the LobsterChops and ate every little bit of it so I didn’t have any room for desert. Actually, after the fried calamari appetizer, some of their signature bread and a couple of bites of my salad, I was already pretty full so I’m not sure how I managed to eat all of my entree.

Next week is the last part of our Valentine’s week celebration. Brian got us a couple’s massage at Healing Waters. We are both really looking forward to it. We’ve gotten full-body massages before (usually at Sveta’s because it’s closer to our house) but never in the same room together. A couple’s massage is actually pretty exciting.

You’re probably wondering, with all of the things that Brian has done for us, what my end of the Valentine’s Day gift-giving is like. For our Valentine’s this year, I got us a new featherbed from Eddie Bauer (I got it during the White Sale so we actually got it a few weeks ago and we’ve been sleeping on it) because our four-year-old one is totally worn out, some new featherbed protectors and his-n-hers matching Nike ID Shox NZ. For just Brian, I got an orange long-sleeved waffle tee from Abercrombie & Fitch, an orange hoodie sweatshirt to match it from Hollister, and a pair of Eddie Bauer flannel-lined carpenter pants.
Here are some pictures of our personalized Shox..

The last two pictures are of Brian’s new computer. He has a dual monitor system hooked up now. I am super jealous! However, he was generous enough to give me a new 19″ monitor and he’s donating 20 GBs of his 120 GB hard-drive space to me so that we each have 100 GBs (mine is only 80 GB) so I really have no room to complain. That doesn’t keep me from being jealous, though..

He has decided to give his old computer to his grandparents because theirs is broken. Isn’t that nice of him?
