Love is in the Air!

Yesterday was Valentines Day and Parks and I have a lot to celebrate!

While I love my Parker, the past 6 years he has been notoriouslyyyyyy BAD at Valentine's Day. I am not a big Valentine's Day  person either, but he literally forgets the holiday even exists and I usually get him a card and some red vines and call it a day.

This year, he surprised me!

When I came home from work, I saw this:

and then I walked up the stairs and saw this:

and when I walked inside there was this:

and this:

He had also cleaned up the entire apartment and was sitting on the couch smiling proudly at himself :) :)

I was one happy wife!!

We didn't go out to dinner but we did grab some food from Butcher Boy in North Andover (ah-mazing) and whipped up a delicious meal together. You can't beat a juicy filet, some sparkling cider, and good company!

This was the first time we used our cast iron skillet and it was so easy. It was also a workout since these things are so freakin' heavy. 

and of course some chocolate covered strawberries for dessert :)

I hope that everyone had a love-filled Valentine's Day with their lover, family, and/or friends!

The Moranimals leave home...

Put all 6 of us Moranimals in the same place at the same time and we always have a good time.

We all left home yesterday to celebrate Allison and Billy's wedding in Watertown! The wedding was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the dancing was non-stop.

And just for your amusement:

Momma Moran was a dancin' machine last night... Bob decided to show off his moves as well!
