It has been a super busy last several days.  All the fun started with an early birthday dinner/date night on Sunday.  The picture on the left is us right before Bob and I left for our evening out.  This was the best picture we took, because Taylor pretty much goes into an insane frenzy every time he sees a camera these days.  I don't get it -- he used to be so photogenic and would sit and say "Cheese!"  Not anymore!!

Our fabulous evening started at 622 North with a lovely glass of Shiraz and their cheese tray, which included baby swiss, colby, and something else I can't remember.  It also had French baguette, walnuts, and balsamic honey.  My favorite!  We then moved on to our favorite date night restaurant, Poor Billy's for crab legs and salad, followed by peanut butter pie at Macado's.  It was a decadent and tasty evening.

Tuesday morning dawned bright and early, and I made Taylor a special heart-shaped french toast waffle, with a dollop of pink yogurt on top. It was a spur-of-the-moment decision to make this, and it was super easy.  He happened to love it, and has been asking for a special breakfast treat ever since!

Bob gifted me with some beautiful pearl earrings, in a box with a handmade bow he made especially for me.  It was ever so sweet and thoughtful, and I've been wearing my new earrings every day.

Even though we had a sick little wee at home (Stephen was running a low-grade fever), we made the most of the day and had a lovely dinner that evening.  After the boys went down, Bob made a delicious dinner of sauteed beef tenderloin, risotto, and roasted asparagus.  Each dish was cooked perfectly!  Instead of cake, Bob picked up a tub of pomegranate and tart swirled fro yo, which truly was a special treat, since fro yo is my fav! 

So the last few days have been a whirlwind.  We've had my birthday and Valentine's Day, but we've also had Stephen fighting a cold and being home with a fever.  It has been tough seeing him feeling so miserable and not being able to do a whole lot about it.  But, he seems to be better, which is nice.  Today is the first day he has seemed like himself, and that has been refreshing.  The next couple of weeks are going to be pretty busy, too, so here's to hoping we all stay sane and remember to enjoy and value each precious moment of each precious day.
