You're Hot and I'm Ready
This morning I woke up to this romantic sight:
"Happy Valentine's. You're HOT-N I'M READY!"
Just kidding :)
But one of Evan's students really did use that line
along with that pizza to ask his date to the school's Valentine dance!
We can't stop laughing about it!
No what I actually woke up to was this:
Because for most people today was the day of love. But not for me.
For me, today was
Or in other words, the day that decides whether or not the past four years of my life were completely worthless.
There is a slight possibility that I have been totally self absorbed for the past three weeks and focused 100% of my time on studying. (read: my house is a disaster and we've been eating an unusual amount of pancakes/waffles)
So Monday, the day before my test, my sweet husband told me he had a surprise for me. A Valentine's surprise. And I was completely burnt out with studying by that point anyway so we decided the best way for me to prepare during the last 24 hours before the test was to take a break.
And break we did.
Romantic dinner of Lemony shrimp scampi
(get the recipe here)
No seriously get it because its divine.
Followed by a trip to Salt Lake where Ev surprised me with tickets to Mat Kearney!
And Ev too.
It was an amazing concert and a much needed break. Even if we had to sneak out a little early due to my self-imposed biggest-test-of-my-life-is-tomorrow curfew.
And then I went to sleep.
And then I woke up to my cute snacks all packed and ready to go.
And then I took the test.
And then it was over.
or at least until the scores come back.
This thing that has been looming over me for years, and consuming me for weeks.
And then I became human again and we did lots of other things to celebrate Valentine's day, like eating chocolate covered strawberries, and lighting candles, and re-telling each other our ridiculous love story over dinner, and ...lots of other things too.
