Fancy Valentine's Day

Rick and I don't usually go out on Valentine's Day.  It is crowded and we like to spend time doing our Family Valentine's Dinner tradition.  This year, since I am doing Whole30 and couldn't eat at most places, we decided to go to a movie earlier in the week.  To make it extra special, we went to see our first IMAX movie(I know, we are way behind the times!).  We saw "Gravity".  It was good and we both enjoyed our time.  
So stylin' in his IMAX glasses
Then, we were given an amazing gift. This was something that we would not have done otherwise, 
A night at the Broadmoor on February 13!!  
 We got to wake up on Valentine's Day there. 
 I will admit that the decor is not really my style, but it was fun to stay at a fancy place and be treated like we are fancy!
 I loved the bathroom!  
 It was huge!

 We did not partake of these very expensive treats, but I had to take a pic of our fully stocked fridge
 They had turn down service
 They even left us robes and slippers!
 Chocolates on our pillows
 Feeling fancy! 
 It came at the perfect time in the midst of work craziness for Rick(between 2 different Dallas trips), home projects, and kids doing lots of sports and activities.  I was so thankful for the opportunity and for the Fowlers being willing to keep our kids on such short notice!!

The next day, we went to our favorite place for breakfast, Over Easy.  It was painful to order and eat my breakfast:
 while watching Rick eat his!
More than anything, I enjoyed the time that we had together.  This unexpected blessing was such a treat!!
