Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello all! Happy Valentine's Day! Well...happy belated Valentine's Day that is! But technically, I am only a couple hours late. And I was out enjoying the day so I think that is a good excuse! 

I hope you all had an amazing day! Whether you love or hate this holiday, I just hope that it was a good day and not a bad day for anybody! 

Kevin and I are saving up to move as I have mentioned, so we agreed not to do or buy anything to save money. But as usual, every year we say this and every year neither of us hold up to our end of the deal. Just like every other year, at midnight the night before the holiday, I set out to work on a small gift for him. :)

I had to work all day as usual, and while my job is a GREAT blessing, and overall a wonderful place to work, it has been a little rough. I have been thrown into things that I have no idea of what I am doing, and I work for an accountant...and it is tax season. Enough said. 

I have been struggling to stay on top of my photography and art jobs and to stay positive and optimistic about it and often come home feeling very defeated. But today I had the best surprise ever! 
How sweet is this?!

I loooooooooovvvee cupcakes and sweets. Way too much. There is a cupcake shop downtown here that I am just in love with. Everything she makes is sooooooo good. And lemon is my all time favorite sweet flavor and her lemon cream cupcakes are just to die for.

Sooooooo, because Kevin and I are saving money as well as trying to condense our belongings down (i.e. stop collecting so much junk  treasures), he got me a big ol' lemon cake in the shape of the one I love the most. 
Mickey Mouse!
It was not only a thoughtful and clever gift in an effort to give me something I would love but was not useless or take up space, it serves as a reminder of why I am working so hard and why it is worth it. It is all for Disneyland and moving to California! 
It was way hard to cut into, but once we did, it was hard to stop eating. We have some left, but not a lot! 

I ended up making him Wrex and Grunt from Mass Effect. They are two alien characters from his favorite video game.
 I will do a full post of them later but here is his whole nerdy gift.
Grunt and Wrex , an astronomy magazine and nerds candy. :)
We saw a movie and had dinner and managed to hardly spend any money. 
Wendy's for dinner may not sound like a great Valentine's Day date venue, but Wendy's is a rare treat! We LOVED the place so much but our local one burned down which broke out hearts. 
So it was plenty romantic for us and saved a lot of money! :D

I hope you all had a wonderful day!

Yummm! That is such a thoughtful gift! I bet it was tough to eat Mickey's face :) But so cute!
