Thankful for Mondays

Well, referring back to my February goals, I'm already a failure. On of my goals was to blog every weekday this month, something I have never done in the year and a half of running this website. Fortunately, I'm a pretty forgiving person, so I forgive myself. I completely forgot to post the blogs I had written for Thursday and Friday of last week. Good thing there is a Thursday AND a Friday this week! ;) 

The big to-do this weekend was Valentine's Day. Cal and I have never gone on a Valentine's Day date. Perhaps the 2013 post-work, late night trip to Wendy's counts, but I'm choosing to leave that one out. Working in the service industry, we have always worked.

Friday night, I decided to cook a full dinner for the two of us. Yes. Me. Cook. I looked up recipes on Pinterest, went shopping, and had food on the table when he got home. LOOK AT ME! Haha!

Our Sunday was wonderful! Cal took me to my favorite local Chinese restaurant, Peter Chang. Peter is a famous Schezuan chef from China and just happened to open a string of restaurants in Virginia and DC. The baby appreciated all of the steamed buns, fried rice, and delicious pan seared chicken! Following lunch, I begged to see Zoolander 2.

Cal's dish was so steamy and spicy, he started sneezing as soon as it hit the table.

Really really ridiculously bad movie.

This movie deserves its own paragraph. You see, when I saw Zoolander in 2001, it blew me away. It was the weirdest, most bizarre film I had ever seen. No other movie compares to it. It has and will always be one of my favorite movies. Naturally, when they announced the sequel, my interest was peaked. You never expect a sequel to be as good as the original, but the movie we watched yesterday, I never saw it coming. TRAIN. WRECK. It was literally the worst movie I've ever seen in theaters. (I say theaters because there were a few direct to dvd films that truly take the cake.) Whatever you do, don't waste your money. Cal and I laughed the whole time because a)the movie was so offensive, and b)we actually paid to see it. Despite the horrific movie experience, I was glad to share it with Cal.

If you aren't able to celebrate Valentine's Day with your special someone on February 14th, I have good news. There are 364 (or 365 this year!) more days to show them you care. In fact, I would encourage you to fawn over them as much as possible. Don't wait for the big holidays to express your affections. Happy Monday!
