valentines day 2012

after recapping our valentines days from 2010 and 2011,
today we have last year's valentines...going through the 
memories from our dating years & valentines of the past
has been so fun and has made me ten times more excited
for this year, our first valentines day married!!
sorry for all the love posts, but it is valentines week,
and what can i say? i'm a hopeless romantic.
last year during valentines we were engaged and planning our wedding,
so it was definitely a fun & romantic one! i had just moved back home after 
finishing my last semester of college living on campus, so chase came over 
at the crack of dawn and cooked an entire breakfast for me while i was 
sleeping. then he came and woke me up for his breakfast, lots of gifts, 
and an entire plan for our day!
..the day he had planned included..
a valentines breakfast, hiking in neff's canyon, cuddling, some tennis, the temple, a lunch date, ice skating downtown, some hot chocolate, a surprise dinner at a new italian restaurant, presents, and then watching my very favorite movie. 
it was the perfect day, and i loved that he had planned it all!
chase's presents to me included: all the dates that day, this cute new phone case,
a "love map" of places we had lived {and the place we were moving to}, 
really cute pink apron i had wanted, and concert tickets to one of our new 
favorite bands! so perfect. he said for valentines, he always wants to 
have one of his gifts to me be tickets to some type of 
show/trip/event for us to go that idea!
for my present to chase, i made snickers chocolate chip cookies {he loves snickers,
and when i saw these on pinterest i knew i had to make them for him}...then i framed his diploma and got his sigma chi certificate framed for him. 
the main gift was a "jar of dates," with all different date 
ideas rolled up inside of it for us to do!
(not my very best gifts, but hey- i was busy planning a wedding! :)
last year's valentines day made me even more excited to marry
this boy, and he made it perfect. can't wait for tomorrow! 
happy valentines eve!


  1. I love that his gifts for you are tickets! Great idea!

  2. i love this. sounds like a fantastic valentines day.
    this makes me think that maybe holidays can be better when we aren't in school. instead of getting to spend 13 hours on campus and 1 hour with my husband, i could spend 5 hours, that will be the day!


  3. WOW that valentines was out of control amazing!! He knows how to treat a girl right!

  4. What an amazing Valentine's day for y'all! I love that the "egg in a hole" is in the shape of a heart - so cute! Can't wait to see what he does this year!

  5. so cute! I love valentines day as well. Being engaged this year, I think we will keep it low key, cooking dinner together and exchanging a present or two. thanks for stopping by my blog!

  6. Don't apologize. The posts are Great! Love them!!

    1. Seriously, you guys have the EXACT kind of relationship I have always wanted to have, & more! I'm soo glad to know it exists in this world of people not knowing it is (or living up to it). You make me know it's possible! What a great example you set!! THANK YOU ~ & hats off to both of you for being such great partners to each other & fun in life!!

  7. stop being so cute - it's killing me!!! too precious!

  8. that sounds like it was such a fun day!!!! I'm making a date jar for valentines day this year!

  9. oh so sweet.. hope you have a great day.

  10. You two are so romantic, I love it! I seriously don't know how you think of so many good gifts each holiday. two years of dating and one year of marriage I feel like I have already run out of ideas.

  11. How sweet! You guys are romantic! Those cookies look amazing too!


leave us some love! ♥♥
