Be My Valentine

Lambert and I had planned a romantic night out for valentines Day weekend. We were going to go to The Zaza for a date night massage and then head out to a new french restaurant I've wanted to try. After the Zaza and dinner we planned to hit the bookstore (we love to do this on date nights). His mom was going to keep Hoot for us. We figured this would be our last night out together for a while... (11 more days!!) Well Nanna came down with a bad cold so we canceled our reservations and decided to skip the romantic massage and nice meal and take Hoot along with us for dinner. We headed to Houston for P.F. Changs... Hoot loves their Mongolian Beef and Cucumber Noodles minus the cucumbers.. however at 5:30 the wait was 1 hour and 45 minutes. We took the buzzer, did a little shopping in the strip center and then decided to have mexican food at another restaurant in the same strip center... (not a good as Changs). After fajitas we headed to The Container Store (get ready for this) to get my valentines day present.... I know, how romantic are we? The lid on my trash can broke about a year ago and I have fiddled with it, taped it and finally kicked it so it was time for a new one. The one on my wish list was pricey so I knew it would have to come in the form of a gift.( I'm not the chocolate type or the flower type or the jewelry type give me an appliance or kitchen gadget and I'm yours!) The floor model had a dent in the side of the lid. Lambert asked if I thought they would sell us the damaged model at a reduced price. We're all about bargain treasures. I swooned over his stealth negotiating skills (the reduced price was marked on the back of the can) are you ready... we stole if for 1/2 off.. (scandalous) He pulled the dent out when we got home and it's good as new!!! Does it get any more romantic than this my friends? I think not... I think not. I may have a future in romance novels. This was pretty steamy!
Happy Valentines to all you lovelies! SAL
