Valentines Day (and a lot of sugar)

I'm convinced that Valentines Day was invented because there needed to be a holiday in between Christmas and Easter to eat some excess sugar. As you can see from this post, we take advantage of this opportunity to the fullest.

Decorating Valentines cookies! 

 Enjoying some Valentines doughnuts!
 Am I obsessed with food?
We call him Valentino.
I got the sweetest valentine from Keaton!

Speaking of excess sugar... I love them so much.
On Saturday, our friends watched the boys all afternoon, so that Scott and I could escape to the North Shore for a Valentines date.
Lunch at Zane's shrimp truck. My favorite!

We spent the afternoon walking around Haleiwa town, lingering in all the cute shops we always WISH we could stop in and browse around. It was great! 

And another food pic...
Everyone raves that Matsumoto's has the BEST Shave Ice on the North Shore, but we've never wanted to wait in the long line with the boys to see if it was really THAT much better than any other place. Since it was just the two of us, we decided to see what all the hype was about. Verdict: good shave ice, but not worth the long line. We will stick to the Aloha General Store from now on! I felt so guilty enjoying this yummy treat without my boys. Actually, no I didn't. Not really.

Then we went to Costco. I think it's a sign of a good relationship when you genuinely love going to Costco together, like on a date.

9 1/2 years and counting with my Valentine!

I love Valentino and I wish I had thought of him first :) Oh, well, maybe I'll remember that for next V-day. And, yes, you are obsessed with food. But, that's one of the things I love about you!
