Dinner last night

We lit up the candles and ate in the dining room last night.
I found a cupid's arrow I made for a Valentine's banquet a few years ago so I set it in front of Hubby's place.  This was a simple craft with paper towel roll insert, pretty paper and a wire coat hanger.
I was rushed to suprise hubby before he walked in so me and my youngest son filled the little nibble plate with candy and chocolate cookies (Keebler).  I adore these heart shaped bowls from Michael's for $1.29.
We used our wedding day napkins.  cuteness
set in front of the 7th graders place

It was fun to see Hubby's face when we told him we were eating in the dining room and he saw that we had set it all up.  We usually have to eat deli sandwiches on the way to baseball practice.  It was so wonderful to sit together and really talk about what is going on in our daily lives.

He must have really loved our effort because I just got a Fed Ex delivery and he ordered me a Shari's Berries 12 dipped strawberries.  He heard about it on the radio. lol  Gorgeous...I'll show ya'll later.  The meaning of 12 (a dozen roses/strawberries) I read somewhere here in blog land is I'm thinking of you 12 months a year.  Awwww! 

I'm tagging into:
