The month of February is always a fun month for us and with a birthday, an anniversary & Valentine's Day we have much to celebrate.
Lately we have enjoyed-
:: The Winter Olympics started and we have been enjoying watching everything from the Opening Ceremonies, figure skating, snowboarding, bobsledding... This always brings back such good memories of the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City that we were able to attend! So much fun then and we just love to watch on TV now!
:: I finished this book; "The Fault in Our Stars" in one day. It is technically a teen book but I had heard such great things about and I couldn't put the book down.
:: I kidnapped Pete and took him to see the movie 'Frozen' that I have been wanting to see. :) Yes, this is an animated, children's movie-- and we both loved it!
:: We celebrated Pete's birthday. He wanted to try a restaurant that he had seen on Guy Fieri's 'Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives' Food Network TV show called 'Smalley's Caribbean BBQ' in Stillwater, MN. It was a little drive for us, but very worth it.
It was a great new find for us and we absolutely loved all the food and drinks we ordered. All of the food that we tried was great and highly recommended: conch fritters, the jerk pork tacos, mac 'n cheddar with chili's and bacon, braised brisket and the Dark and Stormy Ginger beer.... so good!
:: February 10th was our 24th anniversary! We were going to go out and celebrate on Saturday, so we kept this day simple but special- flowers, drinks at our local wine bar & fondue dinner at home.
:: Drew had his last JV hockey game of the season. I can't believe it is over already!!
:: Valentine's Day brought us to the Gopher Hockey game. Some friends offered us tickets for this game and I jumped at the chance because I haven't been to a Gopher Hockey game forever and it is always a fun time at Mariucci!
We took the shuttle bus to and from the game from Blarney Pub and Grill and enjoyed some great country music after the game.
:: Saturday Pete and I headed to St. Paul for a little getaway for our anniversary. We stayed at the gorgeous St. Paul Hotel.
:: And enjoyed an amazing dinner at Kincaid's-- which has always been a favorite of mine!
:: Sunday morning, we had a leisurely breakfast in our room before checking out from our little getaway.
It has been an awesome February so far!
