Everyone knows Valentines Day is about the ladies. It is a day that is very commercialised, and is meant to be full of flowers and chocolates. To be honest, I have never been that much of a fan. But I do enjoy the day where I get to spoil Heidi. So that is what I did. I was determined to make up for last year when we didn’t plan anything and it was really just a day where we ended up catching up at the last minute and had Teriyaki. Classy!!
Well this year was much better as I had a few different things planned. I made sure to keep Heidi entertained and made her breakfast anything she wanted. I also made sure she could do whatever she wanted in the morning after some errands (she wanted to study so I gave her total peace and quiet while I was doing chores by having my headphones in and staying silent the whole time). I then took her for a picnic to an undisclosed location, well the location of the picnic was disclosed, what food we were having was not since we were going to get some takeout for lunch. So Heidi had decided she would spend the entire car ride there trying to guess where we were going. I even drove in the wrong direction to what I normally would to get there to confuse her. She was sooooo excited to go to the Aussie Pie Company for lunch and then as I turned onto I5 North she was even more confused. I had the time of my life confusing her. We picked up some Japanese from a small asian deli in Georgetown and then headed over to West Seattle for a truck picnic by the water.
I then took her to downtown for an activity I knew she would want. I ended up telling her the activity the night before but I was originally just going to not tell her. I took her to the Seattle Meowtrapolitan Cat Cafe. They were having a pop up to help raise funds for some charities and get started for their cafe which is due to open sometime soon. A cafe where Heidi can play with cats is like the best thing ever to her. I was a little Meh about it, but hey, if it makes her happy. She got to play with 1 or 2 cats and the coffee was fairly Meh. All in all to keep Heidi happy for 30 mins of Cat time, well worth the $$$.
We ended off our day with some games on the wii at home, and then a special dinner of Heidi’s favourite foods, Mac & Cheese and Ice Cream (not together of course). All in all a pretty good improvement over last year and getting to spend the evening in with a movie is always a good thing right?
To next year!
