Valentine’s Day is one of my FAVORITE holidays. I was so excited because it was my year to plan it! My best friend Lindsay and her husband Luke would always switch off because it wouldn’t be fun if just the husband planned it EVERY single year!! So we decided to copy them since Steven planned last year’s V-day.
If you know me… I love planning things ahead of time. Since Valentine’s was on a Sunday this year, I planned everything on a Saturday. So keep reading to see what we did!
In the morning, I picked up some of our favorite doughnuts from Provo Bakery and ordered the ones that spelled out “I love you.” I definitely surprised Steven because he thought they were just normal assorted doughnuts!!
Steven surprised me with a HUGE 4″ teddy bear, yummy yummy chocolate caramels and the cutest love letter. I know everyone always says “Why is Valentine’s different than any other day with your companion??” Obviously, I love Steven every day but I feel like with holidays like Valentine’s Day you can just go over the top and be as cheesy as you want!
Around 1PM, we went to Steven’s niece’s 5 year old birthday party at a gymnastics gym and it was so fun! So many little 5 year olds jumping around everywhere. After the party, I planned a couples massage at Art of Massage. It caught my eye a month ago because the couples massage came with a chocolate buffet!! So, we got there and it’s just in a little basement in someone’s house. We kinda awkwardly waited until the other couple finished but once we got in the massage felt sooooooo great. & the chocolate buffet? HEAVEN.
Obviously, dessert before dinner right? So after the chocolate buffet I had a reservation for us at La Jolla Groves at the Riverwoods! We try not to eat out a ton and when we do we try to go all out. La Jolla Groves was on point that night & we ate everything on our plates haha! Our Valentine’s Day was such a great day. It was relaxing and everything that I planned worked out!
For the real Valentine’s Day – we went to church and then made a TON of sugar cookies to give out to people in our ward. It was difficult making the sugar cookies because the dough was SO STICKY but somehow with lots of flour, we did it!! It was fun running around our apartment complex giving the cookies out 🙂
Until next time everyone… Next year Steven is planning Valentine’s!
