For breakfast this morning I enjoyed lobster with my lobster.
Ryan and I went to the grocery store right when we woke up and they had lobster tails on sale for $5 each. We figured eating lobster for breakfast on Valentine’s Day morning would be a neat treat!
I broiled the lobster tails until they were bright red and lookin’ tasty!
Ryan had his with eggs and toast, while I enjoyed mine with egg whites, zucchini, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese.
It was a yummy treat!
Valentine’s Day Mission
After breakfast, I headed off to the gym for a quick workout while Ryan got a head start on our Valentine’s Day mission.
This year’s Valentine’s Day mission was to spend $15 or less on a simple gift for each other.
My workout was awesome. I was totally in the zone on my run and I caught myself lip syncing to the Wicked soundtrack on more than one occassion. I ran five miles in 44 minutes before walking on an incline for another six minutes to cool down. My hair was sweaty and I looked like a brunette when I was leaving the gym!
I then headed off to tackle my end of our Valentine’s Day mission. I have no shame shopping without make up, looking red-faced and sweaty, but maybe I should… 😉
When I arrived home, Ryan and I took Sadie to the dog park for an hour before arriving at an appointment to see the house just down the street from our current apartment for the second time this week. We wanted to check it out again as a potential place to rent when we move out.
We saw the place in the middle of last week and really liked it a lot. The landlord is a cool guy and seemed to want us as tenants. We were hoping to find a cheaper place, so when he called us last night to say he’d drop the rent by $100 a month for us we were super excited!
We ended up submitting applications and are hopeful! Cross your fingers!
We ate lunch late today and I was a hungry lil’ girl!
Pasta was sounding great, so I made a big pasta bowl with broccoli, marinara sauce and Parmesan cheese.
I enjoyed a couple Gingersnap cookies for dessert and two squares of dark chocolate Dove chocolate. What’s Valentine’s Day without chocolate???
I’m off to shower up for a hot date with my handsome Valentine this evening.
Ryan made reservations for us at The Capital Grille for a romantic dinner. Neither of us have ever been, so we’re very excited. I’ve only heard wonderful things about it and can’t wait!
See ya later tonight! 😀
