I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day! Brandon and I are fighting nasty colds {I'm pretty sure we have sinus infections}, so we did lots of laying low and enjoyed being at home.   I think I've also eaten my weight in chocolate this weekend. Diet, here I come! 

Walker had zero interest in taking pictures with my in his cute little Valentine's Day shirt for school. So this is what we got: 

...and then I captured this gorgeous gem in the car on the way to school. #nofilter 

This was my sweet gift from Walker from school. I can't wait to always display this at Valentine's Day every year! 

After work, Walker and I went to surprise Brandon by picking him up at the airport after his business trip! DFW Airport is right on our way home from my office, so it was a no-brainer. Brandon was so excited to see us, and we were excited to have him home after a week away!

Once we got home, crazy hair and Brandon enjoyed some great time outside together. He was so happy his Daddy was home! 

I woke up to breakfast and coffee in bed, which was a great surprise! Also a great surprise? Walker sleeping from 7 p.m. - 7:40 a.m.! I'll take it! Brandon and I exchanged cards while Walker slept in, and then we spent our morning running to Target, Kroger and then had lunch at Chick-fil-A together before coming home to just hang out and enjoy our last bits of great, spring-like weather for a while. 

Brandon made us a great Valentine's Day supper: steaks, lobster tails, scallops, mashed sweet potatoes and asparagus...and of course, a glass of wine. It was amazing! 

We made chocolate-dipped strawberries together earlier in the day, and enjoyed them - along with a box of chocolates Brandon brought home and a glass of wine - while watching the thriller, "All Good Things."

Brandon and I felt like poop all. day. long. When Walker laid down for naps, we did, too. We alternated between Claritin D, Mucinex, Afrin and saline spray, and NyQuil last night. Pray we get over this quickly - nothing is worse than being sick with kids!

Anyway, speaking of Walker's naps, his new thing is sleeping upright {leaning on his crib} after he wakes up, but hasn't decided he's ready to get up for good. It cracks us up! He apparently has started doing this at school, too. 

Also, I decided yesterday that having a sinus infection was the perfect excuse to finish this box of chocolates, right? {Don't worry, I only had about three after this picture was taken!} 

Brandon picked us up Anamia's for supper, and we stayed up entirely too late watching "Saturday Night Live"'s 40th Anniversary celebration. We loveeeeeeeeeeed it! Did y'all watch? 

Hope you have a great week! 

Linking up with Biana and Meghan
