love day

i've always loved valentine's day.
even back in my single days!
there's always been something about love that i love.
and now that cupid finally speared his arrow into the right guy last year, i have the most amazing man to spend love day with :)

on saturday we went to my favorite restaurant, The Cheesecake Factory, in newport beach in fashion island.
appetizer was calamari. yum.
i had the margarita pizza. yum
charlie had the four cheese pasta. yum.
and for dessert..
i chose the banana cream cheesecake [like i do every time.] yum.
hubs had blueberry white chocolate cheesecake. yum. [but not as yummy as mine. but i'm a little bias.]

then today, after charlie came home from work, i lit about 60 or so candles around the house, made an easy smeezy crock pot dinner, and a giant heart cookie for dessert. 
a romantic night in for valentines is always the best ;)

cream cheese chicken and broccoli with pasta.

didn't want to whip up some frosting, so chocolate chips will have to do!

my husband always has to involve the word "poop" of some sort in his drawings or when telling a joke or when he hacks my facebook.
[he's so mature sometimes]
he does it because he knows it makes me laugh.
but look how cute his heart is :)

and since this post is about love day, here are some love quotes that are a new addition to our home!
this hangs to the side of our vanity.

i plan on doing some stencil work around this quote above our bed.

hope you all had a wonderful valentine's day!
and i hope you told that special someone how much you love them.
tell them tomorrow...and the next day too. :)

hmm..weird how we haven't updated in a couple weeks. nothin' too exciting has been goin' on in the osborne household apparently. but i will give you a little update :)

-we're starting to make some friends in our new town! makes for fun double or triple date nights.
-we bought a TV! an insignia 42" plasma from best buy. [thank you super bowl blowout sale!]
-along with our new tv, we signed up for a fantastic deal with directv. now we can be caught up with the ellen degeneres show, american idol, and all the new country music videos on know, all the important stuff on television..
-we're OBSESSED with Dexter.
-a week after we got married, we found out that charlie is getting deployed to Afghanistan on september 11th [they couldn't have picked a better day?..] for 7 months. sad about it. but the good news is that when charlie comes back [safe and sound!] he's out of the corps in a month and a half! yesss!
-i've started a little work out plan called "slim in 6". and boy, am i SORE. :) [supposedly i'll drop 15-20 pounds in 6 weeks. i love the sound of that!]
-i'm getting to be a pretty darn good chef since i cook just about every night for my man. tonight's dinner: lemon herb chicken with sautéed mushrooms and broccoli. yum!

thaaaat's about it for now folks! valentine's day is comin' up. i'm hoping for a memorable and romantic first valentines with the husband...[we'll see about that haha.]
