A Day of Love

February 14, 2013

This morning I decided not to sleep in and skipped the gym so I could spend the morning with Liam and Layne together. Since Layne has started this new shift, we don’t see each other much. I cooked us both breakfast to enjoy together, bacon and eggs for him, bacon, sweet potato and berries with coconut for me.

Neither of us are really into Valentine’s Day so it wasn’t anything fancy around here. Notice the roses, though? While I was cooking breakfast I got a very special mail treat! Mott’s Garden Cocktail sent a Valentine’s Day surprise, some roses and cans of their veggie juice! Thank you so much Mott’s!

Unfortunately I’m not able to drink any on the Whole 30 plan, but I let Layne sample some at breakfast and he really liked it. Although I think he was a bit upset that Mott’s out-did him. He is giving me some tattoo time to get my anchor tattoo fixed up, which I had planned to do last year before I found out I was pregnant.

The roses in the mail totally made me laugh though. I once had a guy from the States mail me flowers. He thought he was sending them over night, but they totally took a few days to get to me and were completely dead by the time I got them. I guess it was the thought that counted? I will probably never forget that!

I gave Liam a Valentine’s Day treat today too!

I put some cooked yam into his mesh feeder to let him munch on for a bit. He’s been showing lots of interest in food while we are eating lately so I thought I’d let him try it out. He loved it! He sucked on that thing for a super long time, there was hardly any yam left when he was done! There was, however, yam all over his face and sleeper! Too cute.

We just hung out the rest of the day. I was suppose to get together with my friend Alix, but Liam decided to take an extra long nap instead. Fine by me. I was happy catching up with blog stuff on the couch and dreaming of my new tattoo while I watched him swing away. I’m only a little jealous of all the people on Facebook/Twitter talking about delicious  meals, wine, chocolates and fancy gifts. I can’t even treat myself to wine and chocolates due to Whole 30. Ah well.

Valentine’s Day isn’t so bad now that I have this little man in my life!

How was your day?

What is the weirdest thing you’ve ever got in the mail?
