Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! I had such an awesome one and I can’t wait to share!
My night started off receiving these
Beautiful Pink Roses
Which was actually perfect considering the gift he was getting!
For His gift (which I was so excited to give him!), I received this reaction!
I’d say it was a success!
Here’s a little bit more about his present! Aaron is a beer fanatic! He loves finding ones that taste good aka not Miller Lite, or Bud Lite! (Basically, the more expensive ones!) I came across a Groupon for a Beer gift basket to be sent and delivered, but he works for the government which doesn’t allow deliveries. So, I thought I’d send it to his house. Well, you need someone who’s 21 to sign and some of his family members that would be home for it aren’t 21. Getting it delivered to my house wasted the fun (and delivery costs!) What was I to do? Make my own! I went shopping with my brother (also the beer fanatic) to pick out beer Aaron would like, and then I went shopping at Walmart to fix up a basket! Here was the outcome.
It was loaded with food I associate with beer
There were some trail mix bars…
He received lots of beer jerky, buffalo pretzels, summer sausage…
He also has honey roasted peanuts and oatmeal pies!
Underneath it all were some of his favorite beers! I bought him some Troeggs Nugget Nectar, and some Great Lakes Commodore Perry! He was happy to receive those, especially!
Back to my night last night!
I told you all yesterday how Aaron and I were going to the shooting range! Well, it didn’t disappoint! I had such a blast, and so did Aaron. Quite nerve-wracking at first, and I did hit the ceiling at the beginning, but you live and learn! We used a “Glock 19” (Aaron’s technical terms, to me it was a handgun!). I didn’t quite know what to expect, and was kind of nervous when no one told us what to expect either! Here is a recap from our experience!
We had lots of options of targets to pick from, but we stuck to a basic one with the numbers and circles! In the above picture, you can see both Aaron and I having a great time shooting! You weren’t allowed to use cameras or phones inside, so our pictures were taken through the glass on my phone I was pretty bummed when I saw that sign! It was still a blast, though, and I would do it again! Totally different Valentine’s Day, which made it super fun!
After our shooting range experience, we were hungry. I mentioned how I wanted to go somewhere Low Key, and we decided on a newer restaurant right by us! It is called Burgerz ‘n’ Dogz and we had been interested in trying it. It ended up being packed so we sat at the bar and actually watched them make our food! Our dinners were delicious and I can’t wait to go back!
We started off with an appetizer of Provolone Wedges. They are made fresh daily, and you could absolutely taste this. They were beyond delicious! For my dinner, I had the Mac ‘n’ Cheese Hot Dog with a side of sweet potato fries! It. was. outstanding. I can’t wait to go back and get it again! The sweet potato fries were also good. They came with a cinnamon sugar drizzle on top, though, which I wasn’t a huge fan of! I would prefer them with a touch of salt and ketchup! Aaron created his own burger, which he said was good, but not his absolute fav. He wants to go back for a hot dog next time!
It was a perfect Valentine’s Day spent with my loved one!
- Did you have a good day yesterday? What did you do?
- Have you ever gone to a burger and hot dog shop? Were you a fan?
- Sweet potato fries. With or without cinnamon sugar?
