{Gone Pinning} Valentine’s Day

GonePinning

Man, what a week! First, our beloved Broncos humiliated themselves at the Super Bowl and then Seattle blew up in excitement over its first Super Bowl win. As a result, more than 700,000 people trekked downtown to help celebrate the Seahawks. To put that in perspective, that’s more people that even live in Seattle along 20 blocks during a workday. Yowza.

As you can tell, it’s been a long week and Valentine’s Day is already less than seven days away. So, it’s time for some quick planning…and a trip to Pinterest.

Brandon and I try to avoid the jacked up prices of the typical Valentine’s Day gifts and restaurant menus and this year is no different. It’s pretty nice to be on the same page and we celebrate just as much our way.

So, for Valentine’s Day, we’re going to enjoy a romantic dinner at home. Here are some of my ideas…

Valentine's Day pizza? I think yes. Maybe with heart-shaped pepperoni?

We’re also planning on giving one another cards, little gifts (think sweets) and an afternoon wine tasting and sight-seeing in Woodinville. I’ve pinned a ton of great card and gift ideas, along with some tasty recipes on my “Valentine’s day inspirations” board on Pinterest.

Have a great weekend and happy {almost} Valentine’s Day!
