Good morning! Happy Friday! How was your Valentine’s Day?

Mal and I had a really nice Valentine’s Day. We agreed to keep it low-key because we’re off to Hawaii on Sunday, so we spent the holiday at home with some fun gifts and Thai take-out for dinner.

When Mal got home from school yesterday, he was super excited to give me my Valentine’s Day present, which was a goodie bag full of travel items for our long flight to Honolulu. Isn’t that a great gift!?!

I’ve never owned an eye mask before. I’m excited to use it on the flight. I hope it helps me sleep!

Mal was most excited about the beauty products that he selected for me. He said he wanted them to have a spa theme, so he even did internet research to find the best products. Isn’t that sweet?!? I loved everything he picked out.

I also really loved the book that Mal bought me: Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know. I’ve wanted to read it for awhile now, and I’m so glad he remembered.

On Wednesday night, after he had already bought the book for me, I randomly told him that I wanted to read “the book with the dog face on the front,” so I could figure out what Murphy was thinking. Mal played dumbed, but he definitely knew I was going to love the book.

While Mal was at CrossFit last night, I organized his Valentine’s Day surprise, which was a scavenger hunt around our house. (I know, we act like kids, but, hey, we have a lot of fun together!)


Murphy “helped” me hide clues and presents around the house for Mal.

Murphy really didn’t understand the whole scavenger hunt thing.

When Mal got home, he was pumped for the scavenger hunt.

He (and Murphy) had a blast searching all over the house for his Valentine’s Day gifts.

We got take-out from Lime Leaf! It was delicious!
