Joy and Love! Growing up valentines day was always about my dad and mom since it was their anniversary. They eloped to Lake Tahoe with my dad's best friend, Uncle Jimmy and got hitched in Loves Chapel. Got to talked to my mom for over a half hour today and wished them love and blessings as they begin working towards there 25th year of marriage. My parents at times drive me and each other crazy but at the end of the day they do love each other and they are still working to keep the love fresh and alive. Valentine's Day brings that excitement and love back to so many relationships. I woke up to my hunny bringing me coffee in bed. I was super surprised when a dozen roses were delivered to my classroom. I had a teachable moment when I had to explain what "I'm gonna kick Mr. Adam!" meant in figurative language. He asked why I was surprised because I was sure we discussed no flowers but he said that never came out of his mouth. My dear friend Christina had two delicious cake pops delivered with love to my classroom too! A chocolate and a carmel cake pop...oh they were scrumptious ! At home I tried out my first flour-less peanut butter chocolate chip cookies that are not too bad. Then we recreated the first fancy meal Adam ever cooked for me...coconut shrimp and filet but this time he added bacon wrapped to the steak and I cooked green beans instead of baked potato. It was delicious and it was fun to eat off our fine china which doesn't happen often enough. After dinner we exchanged our gifts and I was super excited to receive a new exercise outfit. He was so thoughtful in his choices. A yellow top because it was my favorite color and the socks had extra cushion for my sore feet. He got a new black belt for his black shark boots he got for Christmas from my parents and a fun date night coupon book. We have the shooting range to hit up, a brewery, a dream car rental drive, kayaking our favorite the river, and a few others. We ended our night with bring valentines to our sweet nieces. There is so much love to go around with those two and we are blessed to be there Uncle and Aunt. Valentines day is a day to vamp up and recharge the love you already have for each other and I am grateful for a wonderful Lord, family, friends, and a husband who always make me feel well loved. What a blessing it is to feel well loved!

I just loved celebrating Adam this weekend! We spent Friday night enjoying the fresh seafood in Cedar Key. It was a beautiful night and the live music was great. On Saturday we spent the morning lounging at home and then we went over to help his dad and Kellee put together his little sisters new custom closets. We had a late lunch at Mexico, one of our favorites and enjoyed the Gators basketball victory. The main event was Saturday night with some of our most favorite people. I made reservations on the patio at the Great Outdoors Restaurant in High Springs. We feasted, laughed, sang, and just enjoyed celebrating Adam the Farmer! Sunday called for birthday cake pancakes which were scrumptious. So glad I had pinned that recipe! We enjoyed church and then went on an adventure to San Felasco State Park for an afternoon of jogging and walking the trails. For dinner his dad grilled the most delicious steaks from Fresh Market and Kellee had all the fixings. Dessert did not disappoint either with nut cake and homemade strawberry ice cream. It is always fun to celebrate the people you love most but it was rewarding to see all the people who love and support my man!

Super Bowl Sunday is a lazy day filled with amazing food and family! We crossed all three things a off that list! Adam made sliders while Annie made buffalo chicken dip, cheese sticks and the most amazing sundae I had had in a long time. Brownie, ice cream, carmel sauce, strawberries, and fresh whipped cream...how can you go wrong! Even our boy tried to come up to the house for all the fun, but he was told to go on home which he was not pleased about. AB watched him from the front window letting us know when he finally made the short run across the field back home...haha! We cheered for the Ravens since their colors were purple. We are easily swayed around here with AB pulling on our heart strings! Happy week, may it go quickly I am ready to celebrate my man this weekend!
