V day: Round 7

It was pretty crazy when I realized this was mine and Caleb's SEVENTH Valentines Day together! We, as usual, kept it pretty low key. No fancy evening was planned, and not a lot of money was spent...which is truly the way we like it.

Let me back up, our entire weekend was "just how we liked it". I mean, it couldn't have been more perfect. Not ONE thing we had to do at a certain time, no one we had to meet, it was just awesome. Whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted. Typically most weekends that are free still have a few (even small) obligations. This one? Different story. We were thrilled!

We started the night off after work on Friday by ordering a pizza...and that was totally unplanned. If you know me, you know I love my pizza. So when Caleb was upstairs and we hadn't yet figured out dinner plans, you could say I was pretty happy to receive this smooth text while sitting on the couch...

Saturday we got ready early and headed to our local libraries used book sale. We scored quite a few awesome deals and even ran into Erin & Jared! We decided to meet back up later for games! Before that, we scored our free chipotle (and when we got there, ended up scoring 3 more free coupons...heck yes) and had ourselves a little day date.
Hilton Head-opoly!
Caleb and I decided on no gifts this year, but of course, my man didn't listen. His gift made me cry...so darn sweet. He framed a couple of his favorite wedding photos of us in an adorable frame with a bible verse about love. He is the best!!!

Sunday Caleb took me to a couple flea markets and we found some old vintage cameras (enter all the heart eye emojis). We had a gift card for dinner so we headed there and yes, we made it through the snow storm! We honestly had no idea it was going to be that bad out, so we're thankful we made it home safely. We passed a huge accident about every 5 minutes!

Once we got home, I decided to make some Red Velvet puppy chow and it. was. delicious!!!

I plan to post the recipe at some point, it was so tasty! The ingredients I bought could've probably tripled the recipe, but I'm thankful I didn't because I seriously would've finished it off! ;)

This weekend was seriously perfect. No real plans, but so much stinkin fun with my man! I hope everyone had a great weekend, too!


  1. Guess who else made a few batches of that puppy chow? Yup, that would be me, it is soooo good right?!?!?

    Sounds like a fabulous weekend!!!

  2. That puppy chow looks so good! It was Brian's and my 7th Valentine's this year too! Glad you had such a great weekend!

  3. Those are the best kinds of weekends - just going where the wind blows! Definitely eager to see that recipe. Hope your week goes great!

  4. You just can't ever go wrong with pizza ;) I wish I didn't love it so much haha- oh well! So glad you guys had a free weekend to spend together- and I'm glad you made it home safe, that snow came down SO FAST!

  5. I could eat pizza for dinner probably 3-4 times a week and still wouldn't be tired of it lol. Glad y'all had such a great weekend together!! No plan weekends are THE best kind of weekends, and even better that it was Valentine's Day weekend! Can't wait to see that recipe, that looks so good!

  6. I've always been afraid to venture past the regular puppy chow but if you post the recipe I just might be inclined to do so!

    Glad you had a good weekend - we stayed busy but it was major lazy time for us too. Just what the doctor ordered :)

  7. Sounds absolutely perfect! What a sweet gift from Caleb!

  8. Any man that orders pizza when you have no dinner plan is a keeper for sure! :) Glad you had a good weekend!

  9. Nothing better than an obligation free weekend! That Red Velvet Puppy Chow looks delicious!

  10. Sounds like an amazing weekend! And I'm officially hungry now after reading this post.... pizza, Chipotle, red velvet chow.. YUM <3
