What a week this has been! We had an official snowstorm Tuesday into Wednesday that left the City blanketed in snow that will not go anywhere soon because of frigid temperatures. Last night it was -4! Because of this storm Cupid had a difficult time delivering many Valentine’s to his sweeties either because the delivery truck couldn’t navigate the streets or Sweetie didn’t make it into the office.
Well Cupid didn’t have any problems finding me! I was treated to a romantice meal at Roy’s Place! As you can see from the photo, my Cupid went all out! The most spectacular part of the evening was the fact that Mr. Wonderful prepared the meal himself (with a little help from a friend) and oh, was it scrumptious! The menu consisted of:
- Butternut Squash Soup with shrimp
- Three Greens salad w/raisins, bacon bits, cucumber & carrots (ugh!)
- Broiled Lobster Tail
Now to truly understand the importance of this meal you need to learn a little more about Mr. Wonderful. First off, he doesn’t cook, which has been a small sore spot in our relationship for the last seventeen years. I’m of the belief that any human being above the age of 8 who needs to eat should learn how to cook. Cooking is a survival tool!
Also, the last 10 or so months have been tenuous at best in our household and the need for some romance and WE time was overdue!
On the bright side, throughout the years Mr. Wonderful has usually been a true romantic. You don’t have to remind him about anniversaries, birthdays because he is always trying to come up with something a little different and the element of surprise. The latter is usually difficult because he has a former reporter for a wife and I love to sniff out a good story – even if I’m the main character.
Valentine’s Day is extra special for us because it marks the first date and the beginning of the journey leading us to today.
In summary for the second year in a row, Mr. Wonderful has come through with a great Valentine’s/Anniversary gift. The cutie to the right is a “mini-me” of Mr. Wonderful and represents Valentine’s 06.
