It was Valentine’s this week, and I got sick. I was starting feeling ill Wednesday at work, and just the idea of getting sick made me mad. Nick and I had so many plans this weekend, and I didn’t want to miss out on anything. Nick and I usually do the same thing every year, which is have a beautiful dinner at Smuggler’s Inn in Calgary and a quiet evening to ourselves watching a movie. Well I woke up on Thursday (Valentine’s) sick, but it was only my head and throat. So Nick and I still went out for dinner, but that was about the extent of our Valentine’s. My Valentine’s candy consisted of a big bag of Hall’s, and a day of sleeping. Hopefully next year I won’t be sick, but at least I got to spend the day with my hubby.
I know some people refuse to celebrate Valentine’s Day saying that “Oh, you should show you love each other all the time” and “Valentine’s is just a commercial holiday to rip you off”. But you know what? I think it’s a great day to remind each other how much we love each other. It’s a day that we can have a guaranteed date. Yes Nick and I have date nights all the time, and make sure we spend quality time together, but it’s a day we can focus on us.
We had an early night on Valentine's because I still wasn’t feeling well, but the food was still really good. Friday morning, I still wasn’t feeling 100 percent, so my morning was spent in bed again. We did attend the ward Valentine’s dance that night for a few hours, and later on we found out that we won the flowers that Nick entered the draw for. It was kind of a funny coincidence because I had been a little upset that he didn’t get me flowers for Valentine’s this year, and he was luck y enough to win them for me instead. Lol.
After the dance, we headed to Dixons for our friends Matt’s surprise birthday that his girlfriend Amanda planned for him. It’s always good to see them, as we don’t get to see that group of friends as much as I would like to. Matt was so overjoyed with how many people were there to see him, and I got some girl time with Melissa, Allie & Amanda.
By Saturday I was finally feeling fine, and I headed to the gym with Whitney. We did this step class, and boy, I am feeling it today! I was super upset about missing Zumba on Wednesday as that’s when I was starting to feel sick, but I am so glad that I was able to go to step with Whitney.
Saturday night, Nick and I attended a wedding, and saw lots of people that I haven’t seen in a while. We didn’t stay too long, but I wanted to go and support the couple. Ashley looked lovely, and being at a wedding always makes me want to get married all over again. It was a beautiful way to end the weekend.
Hope you all had a good Valentine’s!
