Valentine's Day Dinner!

My hubby made me my traditional Valentine's day dinner last night. This is the same meal he made me on our very first Valentine's Day together just after we got engaged. He closed the doors to the dining room and kitchen so I couldn't see what he was doing (we have pocket doors that he closed). And he made me dinner. When he opened the doors to let me into the dining room I found this:

DH bought me a tulip plant. The reason he bought it is because the pot was wrapped in purple paper and the plant itself is green. (He knows me very well, my favorite colors are purple and green).

I also found this a table set with dinner and candle light:

This candle lamp is the very same one he bought me and had on our table that very first Valentine's day dinner.

He also did sparkling cider in nice glasses and Virgin Strawberry Daquiri's (We don't drink so both were non-alcoholic of course). And of course my dinner:

Stuffed Pork Chops in a cream of mushroom sauce, stuffing on the side, and my two favorite veggies, french style green beans and honey glazed baby carrots! Yummy! And he did Key Lime Pie for dessert.

After dinner we went to a movie on post (it's only $2). We went to see Bedtime Stories. We ran into a friend and his son there so we sat with them. Such a funny movie! We came home after the movie and played a couple of rounds of Mario Kart on the Wii. It was a good night. I love you honey!

Your dinner looks wonderful. I am still interested in purchasing one of the stamp pad holders he was going to make. Please let me know if he is still going to do those. I want one that is finished and primed.
