They Like Them!

I hope you had a great Valentines Day!  We sure did!  Our package to our 2 granddaughters arrived before noon in Ohio and they liked their Teddy Bears and called us to thank us.  Paige said she named hers Winnie The Pooh since it's yellow.  Jenna hasn't named hers yet.   I hope they sleep with them and remember how much we love them.  
Hubby gave me a romantic and pretty card and a box of Godiva truffles.  Oh yeah!  We will only have one a day or so since we're trying to eat healthier.  We've been having such things as celery and carrots or apples with cheese for dinner and having our bigger meal in the early afternoon.  And I'm swimming 3 times a week.  We're both feeling the difference. :-)
I had to attend an important meeting today at Multnomah Falls with the new "head honcho" for the US Forest Service.  She wanted to get to know us and talk about some issues.  The staff at the lodge was setting up for a special Valentines dinner - isn't it pretty?  They had candles down the stairs to the entrance and rose petals strewn by them. :-) 
Here is the Falls Room.. do you see the waterfall? 
This evening Dayle took me out to dinner and when we arrived at Tad's Chick'n 'n Dumplins the parking lot was full.. seems that they opened an hour earlier which we didn't know.  SO.. we drove on to (my choice) - Bumpers Grill & Bar in Wood Village.  We both ordered filet mignon with red wine Bordelaise sauce, twice baked potatoes and salad.  The steak was PERFECTION!  
Below are the new hobnail candle holders that my sister picked up for me.  I love them!
And so, another Valentines Day is over and we had a very nice one.  I hope you did too!  Tomorrow is my 2nd spinning workshop.. I'll take some more photos and share them.  Thanks for visiting!!  ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
