Valentine Surprise #2...

On Saturday morning my husband gave me movie tickets for myself and  my best friend, Marsha.  We were going to a 4:50 showing and then being taken out for a surprise dinner, etc.

When the movie was over we drove back to the house to meet up with our husbands...but we were not going OUT to dinner at all...instead they greeted us with long stemmed red roses and proceeded to escort us to our "table" for dinner.  They had prepared a special Valentine's Day Dinner...complete with chocolates, candles, wine, music and all the trimmings.  They even had a printed menu at our place settings.
It was beautiful!

 The menu consisted of :
Appetizer : Petit Quiches
Salad : Mandarin Orange & Almond
Entree : Tender Filet Mignon
Succulent Crab Legs
Asparagus Risotto
Dessert: Red Velvet Cupcake w/ French Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

 We each received a Filigree Chocolate Heart from "Moonstruck Chocolates"...look inside...
 
  
Chocolate "Love Bugs"

Thank you...Honey...
 
Our friends Marsha & Kirk!
...more tomorrow!

Oh Carrie what lucky girls you both are. How very sweet of your husbands to plan such a wonderful evening with dinner, roses and chocolates!!!!
And the candies are just too cute.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Thought out, time consuming gifts from the heart are so very special. These two men outdid themselves for the two of you. In today's world, stories like this are rare. I love the two pictures of the four of you. Truly what Valentine's Day is all about. Thank you for sharing. The menu sounds like a fine dining establishment's menu.

WOW!!!! How sweet! I love those chocolates! I've never seen those before! What movie?

Andrea said...

You are truly blessed. Also, this picture of you looks very much like one of my dear friends. She is a wonderful kitty cat rescuer. She was a lawyer, her husband still is and she now devotes what seems like 24 hours a day helping kitties get forever homes.
You are both very handsome couples!
hugs
