Weekend Recap {Valentine's Day Edition}

Friday was our sixth Valentine's Day together. I can't believe how the time flies. This will be our only Vday as an engaged couple. I can't believe that when we celebrate the holiday next year, it'll be with my HUSBAND!

Showing off the red dress I borrowed from a coworker! Stylish AND thrifty ;) 
To celebrate, the hubby-to-be and I made a reservation at Hueston Woods Lodge. They were offering a Valentine's Day special that included a three course meal and bottle of champagne, for two. The Lodge is special to us because, in about 3 months, it's where our wedding reception will take place!

Despite the ~2-4 inches of snow on the roads, we braved the cold weather and slick roads... and it was so worth it! The roaring fireplace (and many glasses of champagne) kept me warm, and both of us agreed it was our best Feb. 14 to date.

Note the GIANT bottle of champagne that we'd only made a dent in at that point.

Pork chops with apple chutney... and the most delicious mashed potatoes I've ever tasted!

Milk chocolate cheesecake, topped with fresh fruit and crème

Today I'm linking up with the blogs below. Check 'em out!
