Valentines past.

Valentines Day isn't a huge deal for Caleb and I. We usually celebrate with dinner or a "date night in", but it will always be a special day for me for one particular reason.

It was 2011, we were broke kids in college, but I surprised Caleb with a dinner at The Cheesecake Factory (he had never been). We gorged ourselves on fried macaroni and cheese, and abut a million other appetizers. Sometimes, I think that's the only way to dine out appropriately ;) ... and on our walk back to the car (it was freezing in Downtown Columbus) we stopped for a self-timer picture with my tiny point and shoot. Ohhhhh how I don't miss Picnik and its pathetic "photoshop" skills.

Caleb and I didn't feel like going back to campus yet, so we turned on some music and just talked for a while in the car, talked about us, life, our future... that's when he surprised me with the sweetest gift in the world. My first Bible!! He got "Kayla Lynn" engraved on the bottom .. I think he had a feeling my last name would be changing in the future ;) so he just got my middle name.

Off the V-day topic; we had a great week. Caleb was able to go to a basketball tournament after work with a bunch of guys and when he came home last night he couldn't stop talking about how much fun he had! We also had a blast babysitting our favorite little girls on Wednesday night...and I'm excited to tell you I've worked out four days in a row! This first week of half-marathon training is brutal, but I'm loving it!!! We're really looking forward to a nice weekend with no big plans.

Although we don't have any insane plans for this V-day, we do plan on relaxing! I bought us some cookies (and by cookies I mean pre cut squares of cookie dough, I know, I'm so domestic) with red and pink chocolate chips, and I can bet you that we'll be watching a ton of Disney movies. Hope you have a blast, with whatever it is you're doing!!
