Valentine's Recap

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  

Our Valentine's Day
Joe and I work very close in proximity and I might add, it's quite nice!  He picked me up at work for our lunch date (Bruegger's) and brought with him two dozen white roses!  He's amazing!  I am enjoying looking at them while at work.

Joe bought me the green Double-cloth Lady Day Coat (with Thinsulate) from J.Crew.  I already own two of them (Brown 05' and Black 11').  They are absolutely amazing and one of my favorite reasons for this is: one they are great quality and two the material hardly picks up any lent.  Any lent they do pick up is very, very easy to get off unlike your traditional wool pea coat (especially important for the black coat).

PS - Sorry for the uninteresting backdrop and also someones uninterest in taking photos...

Coat: J.Crew, Sweater: Limited, Jeans: 7 For All Mankind, Earrings: Francesca's Collections
Booties (old): Banana Republic, Gold Watch: Target

One of my all time favorite places to eat is Steve's Wood Fire Pizza in Boca Raton Florida.  It is by far one of the best pizza places I have ever had!  They have a pizza called the 'Black Sheep' and Joe always attempts to mimic the ingredients (for the most part).  He does quite well.

Dinner - Joe's Renditions Homemade Pizza:
Crust, Pizza Sauce, Green Pepper, Red Pepper, Tomato, Sweet Onion, 
Mushrooms, Bacon and Goat Cheese.

As mentioned in my Valentine's Day post, we were going to stay home and have fondue by the fire place. 

Dessert - Chocolate Fondue:

Chocolate, Graham Crackers, Marshmallows, Grannie Smith Apples and Strawberries

Did your loved one surprise you with anything?
