Valentine’s via Instagram

So as I told you yesterday… hubs and I do NOT like going out on Valentine’s Day. We like to cook a really nice dinner together and enjoy some relaxation at home!

We decided to do our Valentine’s date night this past weekend. Friday night we went to Season’s 52 (my first time EVER!!!):

Yes, I clearly LOVE date nights with hubs. It was GORGEOUS outside so we sat out on the patio with the beautiful view of the water:

The food was DELICIOUS… I got the Mahi and hubs got the Chicken Cabernet. Then they came around with their tray of mini desserts (we of course had to get some!). We went with the red velvet, the chocolate ganache, and the key lime… with a side of coffee!

We came back to the casa and cracked open a bottle of Riesling for me & an English IPA for the hubs…

This Riesling is probably my favorite (inexpensive) bottle right now…

Hubs decided to pull out the djembe drum and drop some beats haha…

Saturday morning hubs made breakfast. An egg and toast for me. And… ummm… an egg sandwich with mayonnaise and pickles for him (still gagging at the thought of it… GROSS). Get a look at that bad boy (bleh):

Then, my FAVORITE part of the whole weekend was our Valentine’s present to each other. Two Words:

Couple’s Massage.

Deep Tissue for Hubs – Hot Stone for me… oh man, the hot stone was uh.mazing!

Sunday Morning… Red Velvet Pancakes, baby!

And as if THAT wasn’t enough… I got these Roses from hubs… (le sigh)

Quite the wonderful Valentine’s, I must say!!! 😉

On Tonight’s At-Home Menu?

… and I’m off! Hope ya’ll enjoy your day with your loved ones! xoxo

    There is a new Seasons 52 in KC, we have yet to try it but now I definitely want to! Our menu is KC strips with balsamic reduction, roasted Brussels, roasted red potatos and arugula salad. Weird!?!? Love it and can’t wait to see your porcini rubbed filet!

    Snoqualmie wine- my heart sings. Besides it being tasty, I just love a wine named after our gorgeous Snoqualmie Falls 🙂 WA rocks.
    And that egg/mayo/pickle thing – not the first thing I’d imagine as breakfast food. More dinner, or hangover fare? 🙂 Happy Valentine’s Day! ~Megan

    What a fun V-day! Your date night sounds a lot like ours, minus the djembe drum! haha! Seasons 52 is our special dinner spot, too. I thought you might live in the same neck of the woods as us, and now after seeing this post I know for sure! Hello there, neighbor! 😉

    Naked wine? From Naked Winery in Hood River, Oregon? Naked wines are my favorite…we had some last night for Valentine’s Day as well:)

    YUM! Season’s 52 is always so delicious. Justin and I went there on Friday for our belated Valentine’s Day. I had one of the weekly specials – it was a grilled mahi on top of a bed of spinach, corn, black beans, and green beans…with a big scoop of guacamole on top. It was insanely, insanely good! Glad you enjoyed your meal too!

    Ah! I saw you had mahi, but I was wondering if a different location had the same specials…apparently it did! Seriously amazing right?!?! I wish I could recreate that exactly in my own kitchen. I might have to attempt.
