Prince Caspian, Valentine’s Day, and new recipe FAIL

February 14, 2011 at 8:05 pm (family, reading, resolution: 1 a week)

Today I had the day off… (happy birthday, Lincoln!) but I carpooled in with my husband to where I used to work, and where he still works. I got my oil changed at our local mechanic, then had lunch with some former coworkers. In between, I read and worked on some crafty stuff. I truly don’t mind just waiting around for a few hours at a time… I’m doing the same thing I would at home, but my husband doesn’t have to drive in alone and my oil got changed! 🙂

Started and finished Prince Caspian by CS Lewis while waiting today, so another one is crossed off my list! So far, I’ve liked Prince Caspian and The Magician’s Nephew better than Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe… Although I LOVE the Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe movie, and thought the Prince Caspian movie was just okay. (Plot of the movie – very different of the book, in case you were unaware like I was.)

And now it’s Valentine’s Day… and we’re doing our favorite things to celebrate. 🙂 Since we were in college, we’ve gone to Chipotle for dinner on Valentine’s Day. We’re not big on paying a lot of money, or waiting forever for a table. So we save special dinners for other days, and on February 14th we have Chipotle and watch a movie together. Tonight was Wall-E, a Valentine’s gift from my husband a few years ago. I think it’s one of the best love stories ever! Then a gym date in a little bit, then relax at home with Chuck and House.

Totally failing at cooking one new recipe a week. We’ve been sharing one car for the last two-ish months (long story) and that means we get home late and end up eating out or eating our standard meals. Eh. We’ll try again next week.

What are your Valentine’s Day plans? Any other Chipotle fans out there? And Narnia fans – what’s your favorite book in the series??

    My favorite of the series is The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I love anything about sailing off to magical lands! Still haven’t seen the movie Prince Caspian. Hmmm….

    I love your Valentine’s Day tradition! Very cute 🙂 Jesse’s Valentine’s Day tradition is to get sick…and this year, I joined him. No fun!

    My first day at the preschool went really well…but hours after I was home, I caught Jesse’s flu so bad that I had to spend yesterday in Urgent Care getting fluids pumped into me through an IV since I was so severely dehydrated. Ick! Great first impression at my new job, huh? “Gee, thanks for hiring me, but I can’t come back for the rest of the week because I’m really sick.” Yup. Oh well.
