The Hyatt's celebrate Vday & other randomness...

This year, I had the best Valentine's Day I've ever had with Shane. I know this holiday is super cheesy, but I'm such a sucker for it and any day where I have an excuse to eat chocolate sounds like a perfect day to me. Shane was off Valentine's Day so he offered to run my nasty car through the automatic car wash while I was at work, so that morning, I left for work in his car and he kept mine. Fast forward to that afternoon, I developed a TERRIBLE headache and by the time I left work, I had a full blown migraine. I was so upset, because even though Shane and I had planned for a low key evening, I didn't want to feel like complete crap. I called Shane almost in tears because I felt so bad. When I got home, I walked in to my migraine medicine laying on the counter next to a tall glass of water....sitting beside some amazing goodies. There was a card, a beautiful pocketbook that i'd been lusting over, perfume, and a huge box of chocolates. It was sooo sweet and I of course cried a little.

After thanking Shane for my gifts, I was ordered to go take a bubble bath and to relax in hopes of my migraine wearing off.... (which it did, thank goodness!) When I got finished with my bath, I walked in to the kitchen to find Shane finishing up cooking delicious steaks, baked potatoes, and salads. It was suchhhhh a yummy meal. And it was even better knowing that he had made it all and worked so hard on it. After dinner, he pulled out a made from scratch peanut butter pie.... OMG. I may have eaten my weight in dinner that night, but it was so worth it to have my hubby make me such a thoughtful and delicious meal. We settled in for the night to watch a movie On Demand and were both falling asleep by 10.But it was so perfect. It wasn't over the top, ooey gooey, and we didn't have to fight crowds at a nice restaurant and dinner was better in my opinion! Shane made me feel so special (even though he treats me like this all the time) Oh, and the gifts didn't end there. The next morning, when I got in my car... it was perfectly cleaned... inside and out. Such a sweet and thoughtful hubby.

In other news, this weekend Shane and I are going to NC. Saturday night, we are going out to dinner with his family to celebrate with his sister before she leaves for New Zealand to get married the end of this month. (they're getting married on Feb. 29th). I'm sure it's every guy's dream to get married on this day since they'll technically only have an anniversary every 4 years. I think it will pretty exciting for them to get married in New Zealand though, and we're having a "reception" for them in May. Needless to say, wedding season is about to begin!
 Yesterday, I posted This Link on my Facebook wall. It was an article about Miranda Lambert tweeting about Chris Brown at the Grammy's. Her tweet was "...Chris Brown twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl" and "Not cool that we act like that didn't happen. He needs to listen to Gunpowder and Lead and be put back in his place. Not at the Grammy's."
She's getting a lot of scrutiny for tweeting it... but I personally agree with her. Apparently there are a lot of people who are back and forth on this. Some say, that's his personal life and he makes good music, and others agree that he just needs to go away. My favorite is this article, Why We Hate Chris Brown, where it highlights all the terrible/crazy/stupid things he's done in the past few years. Personally, I agree with Miranda Lambert, he just isn't someone who needs to be idolized, in music or at all. Period.
I have an opportunity to do some freelance work for a local politician and I'm meeting with him about it this weekend. I'll post more about it after the meeting, but I am SO excited... this is a huge opportunity!!!
I've found myself on Pinterest looking at a lot ideas for babies, nurseries, and kid things. Does this mean I want to have kids anytime soon? God willing, no. But i'm a planner, and so I've found myself looking at the things out of curiosity and just random ideas. I'm sure some of my followers on Pinterest (that know me) are probably wondering if I have some news to announce, but it's not like that, I'm just baby nurseries look fun to decorate. Ok now I just sound weird... hah. just being honest.
I have been listening to Pandora a lot at work to get me through some of the long days, and this song came on Pandora and it totally took me back to high school. I'm not a huge Keith Urban fan, but I fell in love with this song and Shane made me a CD with it on there... I'm not kidding when I say I wore that CD out...

Happy Thursday!!!!
