Happy Valentine's Day and weekend review

At our wedding reception (May 6, 2006)
First things first...  I want to say Happy Valentine's Day to the most awesome husband a girl could ever have.  We have been married nearly 5 years and I love him more than he will ever know.

Jason (aka "the hubs) is one of the most supportive people in my life.  He has been around for every up and down since 2004.  He tries to be as encouraging as possible, while helping me realize that some things that I may fret over won't matter in a day/week/month.  With his constant encouragement (and the encouragement of many others), I have made significant changes to my life and I am enjoying every minute of the journey forward!

Tonight, we are going to Michael Dean's for dinner.  This is one of our favorite Rocky Top Hospitality restaurants and tonight is their last night.  Dean, owner of RTH, is closing Michael Dean's after tonight's dinner service to change the concept of the location.  It will be another TriBeCa Tavern in a few months.  I have looked at the delicious Valentine's Day menu and the Pan Seared Grouper looks especially yummy to me!

Weekend in review:
I worked from home on Friday.  Then, I met a wonderful friend for lunch.  We had a great time talking about everything that is going on in our lives.  I wish it would work well to have lunch more often, but for the time being I enjoy our lunches to catch up. 

Friday afternoon, I picked the hubs up from work and we headed east to visit my parents for the weekend.  We arrived in Beaufort around 7:15 p.m. and promptly headed to Ribeye's for dinner.  Dinner was as yummy as usual and didn't disappoint.  After dinner we headed home and piddled around the house before heading to bed relatively early.

On Saturday morning, we attended my younger cousin's (Jordan) basketball game.  This is the first game we have been able to attend this season and she has improved greatly since last year.  She seems to be relatively competitive and enjoys playing.

Lunch bunch (the hubs, Logan, and Jordan)
We picked up Jordan and Logan around 11:30 and took them to lunch at No Name Pizza and Subs.  I figured that Logan would order cheese pizza, but was surprised when Jordan said she would like pizza too.  We talked about what kind of toppings she would like and she wanted the veggie supreme.  I was beyond amazed when she wanted to order veggie pizza, I guess I just assumed most kids didn't really eat veggie pizza.  We had a great lunch with the kids, but unfortunately I only got one picture of us (and it didn't include me!).

After lunch, we went back to my parents house to kill some time before the second basketball game of the day.  We went to Logan's game in the afternoon.  To only be 6, Logan is pretty darn good at basketball.  He played very well, but was upset that he didn't score on multiple shots. 

Saturday evening, we hung out at the house.  Mama and I made Beef and Broccoli and baked egg rolls.  So delicious!

On Sunday, we headed back to Raleigh.  It seems like the time always passes too quickly when we visit my parents (and family).  It's ok though - we'll be back soon!
