black and white and pink all over.

merry thursday to you all. I am happy to bring you valentine's day pictures: round one
that is really the extended title of the post if you look closely
black & white & pink all over: valentine's day pictures: round one
see? I told you it was there.
the best/most ironic part about my three segment vday extravaganza?
none of the pictures were actually taken on vday!
we aren't really huge fans of the hallmark occasion in our house and instead we always try to do things to show that we care for each other. and we always make an effort to be romantic and spend time together.
not just on one day a year.
but anyways, we did decide to embrace the spirit of "couple-ness" this week and planned some really fun excursions.
did we get to all of them?
it was sort of an eyes are bigger than our stomach scenario. but we did discover some interesting and new things to do in tucson. and have plenty more planned.
hello? arizona has a renaissance fair next month! and spring training! and a bunch of broadway musicals are coming to town!
exciting things planned for the spring.

on monday night I found a theater that plays older movies for 4 bucks a person! holla. and guess what they were showing that night?
um yeah. breakfast at tiffany's.
oh hai audrey hepburn, I do adore you.
did I die?
I did.
so, logan was a good hubs and went with me. I rocked my "thrifted from good will for only a dollar" zebra shirt, some purple tights, new pink lipstick (in honor of vday week), and a black ribbon in my hair.

and yes, that is the number to our condo/apartment. and yes, I did paint it pink.

when I had arrived home from class that day, I found this little display to greet me in my kitchen.
though I'm not a huge fan of flowers, logan always buys them for me.
when he was away for boot camp for 8 months last year, he had flowers sent to me every month just to show he was thinking of me. though it was hard to be away from him, it was such a romantic time for us. I wrote him a letter for every single day that he was gone.
and you know what?
he kept them all.
now we have a little scrap book filled with our letters to each other from the year and its nice to be able to go back and look at when we are having a little fight and realize that it will pass.

isn't that turtle ridiculously adorable?
too bad my dogs thought so as well and have since abducted said turtle.
they are asking for bones for ransom and I'm going to have to pay up to get him back.
also, seeds is my hubby's nickname for me. it has evolved so much we don't even really know where it started at this point.
I know before seeds, it was bunseeds. yeah. I know.
but before that... can't recall.
does anyone else have funny nicknames for their significant other?
hope its not just us.

wow. what is that de-lish looking picture of treat awesomeness? well, those are lovies. one of my best friends, leah, bakes these morsels of yum.
