I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday!  I sure did!  I know people have different ideas of Valentine's Day - but I think it's awesome, flowers, chocolates and a day for us to concentrate on love, how can you not like it! :-)  My younger sister Denise and I volunteered at Multnomah Falls yesterday and she suggested we invite our husbands to meet us for dinner afterwards at our favorite restaurant for steak.  Bumpers Grill.  
And my sweetheart surprised me with a bouquet of roses and Stargazer lilies and a box of truffles!  He's amazing, isn't he?
We had a great time at dinner, we had this cozy corner booth and great conversation.  We all had the filet mignon with Bordelaise sauce and twice baked potato.  Yum!
My sis and hubby Steve.. they are so fun to be with! 
And of course, my handsome sweetheart, Dayle.
We usually don't have dessert, but it was a special dinner, so Dayle and I shared this perfectly delicious Crème brûlée.  Mmm!
I have a few other things to share with you.  We were driving and I saw a car ahead of us which had a family of Apples on their back window instead of the regular stick figure families - since I'm an Apple fan, I got a huge kick out of this!
Then I thought I'd share a few of my drawings on the game I'm playing with several people - Draw Something.  :-) 

We are having a spectacularly beautiful sunny day!  I hope that you are enjoying your day and that you have fun plans for the weekend.  We are going to a Crab Feed tomorrow.. photos to follow!  ((hugs)), Teresa :-) 


  1. Isn't he a sweetie! Mmmmm, creme brulee. I would never play Draw Something with you. You'd get so frustrated trying to figure out what the heck I'm drawing ;) Have a lovely weekend!!

  2. What a sweet and loving husband you have! Your flowers are beautiful...your dinner looked delicious....and I hope you really enjoy those yummy chocolates!
    Hugs, Shari!

  3. Ooooohhhh like you Teresa DH and I really 'love' Valentine's Day. Glad you had a wonderful day as well. Love creme brulee. Anne x

  4. So glad you had a great day Teresa! I thought about coming out your way (via Ikea) but the weather changed my mind and direction.
    Your flowers are beautiful and your dinner looks scrumptious :-)
    Have a good Friday...I have to watch my dad at his house tonight so am just getting up.
    Blessings, Aimee

  5. Such a happy day you had. Dayle is so sweet to you and your dinner looked delicious. I'm still down and cozily crocheting, but the sun is shining here today too and that is very welcome. Needless to say, we didn't go anywhere yesterday, but hubby did bring Taco Bell home when he left work. That was good too. Everyday is Valentine's Day with my hubby. He's a definite "keeper".

  6. Awww, I love Betsy's comment above that every day is Valentine's Day! How adorable is that?

    Looks like you had a wonderful celebration of love. It's wonderful that you are so close to your sister! I'm an only child so I've always envied those with siblings.

    Happy day after Hearts Day!

  7. Dayle is an incredible husband! How sweet, he gives you the most beautiful things. And your dinner, wow! That must have been delicious. I am really looking forward to having a dinner out alone with my husband. We'll do that in a few months when his parents are in town and can stay with our kids; they live locally in the summer months and we get a little free babysitting while they're here. :) I'm glad you had such a nice day.

  8. That Dayle is a sweetheart, I am glad you both had a great day,

  9. Teresa, You did have a sweet and yummy Valentine's Day! Your flowers are gorgeous and plentiful!!! I love Valentine's too, love is something wonderful to celebrate!
    Love your game drawings, you are an artist in so many ways. Hope you have a great weekend. See you next week, xoRobin❤

  10. That looks so wonderful! I would love to go to Bumpers Grill!

  11. What a perfect Valentine's Day! That meal looked fabulous!
    Dayle spoiled you!! We did not do gifts at all. I have been so dang sick, and haven't left the house all week, so I had not even gotten my little cuties gifts. I did go deliver them today though.
    Funny Apple family!!
    Glad the problem with the blog is all fixed up!!
    xo Kris

  19. Just doing a little blog hopping. Found your blog through Betsy. I love the gorge. It is one of my favorite drives. Love all of the falls too. Have not been down there for a few years though. Might make a great weekend trip for DH and I. Maybe I can even talk him into a stop at Bumpers. Have never been there. Which end of the gorge is it? I love the drive down through the Horse Heaven Hills and past MaryKnoll. Just thinking about is making me want to do it :) Glad you had such a fun Valentine day.

  20. Good morning Teresa. What gorgeous roses you were bought. The sun is actually shining here today..yipee. I'm glad you found some beach beads at last! That desert looked so would have been good with those oysters I shared with you on my post..LOL.Have a great Sunday, Jane x

  21. I got back from Lincoln City Sunday night at 9pm and we have had unexpected company most of today until 7pm so I am just now able to enjoy your Valentine's Day. Thanks for sharing your celebration with us and I love seeing your art work on Draw Something as well :-) xx from Gracie
