I had some car issues today, so I’m doing a quick, light, weights-oriented workout at home. I’ll be doing this video three times through.
VALENTINE’S DAY CELEBRATIONS
Ray and I have been dating just shy of two years, and our favorite tradition started just over a year ago. We each pick a team for the Super Bowl – whoever loses plans and pays for Valentine’s Day. Last year, Ray lost and planned a great dinner in downtown Chicago. This year, I – thanks to the Seahawks – got the honor of planning our romantic festivities.
Because we’re still exploring our new city, we decided to embrace the culture a bit and planned a self-made brewery tour!
Since I lost this time around, Ray surprised me on Valentine’s Day morning with the gorgeous flowers shown in my post yesterday and a home-made breakfast! Eggs, toast, and (my favorite) veggies! Yummin!
I planned the different breweries by popping on Yelp and finding seven that fit into a semi-circle to begin and end near the same area. Ray and I have a semi-odd obsession with koozies (they filled an entire drawer in our old kitchen, now they take up much of a shelf in our bar area), so I made some home-made koozies with construction paper, staplers, and old snap-koozies.
Ray and I had an amazing time checking out some new areas of the city! We made some new friends – two girls that I even invited to my upcoming birthday party –, we loved trying to become beer-snobs, and we (almost) made it to all of the breweries!
I hope that you guys had a fantastic Valentine’s Day, too!
