Weekend of Love

Ahh Valentine's Day!! The one day of the year when people believe you should show how much you love someone. I know I'm not alone when I say that you should show how much you love someone every day of the year. I did, however, have a good time with Whitney the whole weekend to "celebrate" Valentine's Day.

We started the day by waking up and watching some TV. I knew I had to go to work later that evening, so we couldn't just stay inside until I had to leave. It was also a nice day outside. The first place we decided to go was to Dreamcakes. They had so many flavors available. Two flavors I saw they usually do not have often. Those flavors were the Irish Carbomb and Good People Coffee Oatmeal Stout cupcakes. You know I had to get those!!!

After we got the cupcakes and dropped them off at the apartment, we went back out and headed to HopCity to get some beer. Whitney had the great idea of sitting at the bar for a beer to drink. She knows me too well that I would not say no to that. She got a Belgian Pale Ale from St. Bernardus, and I got Ballast Point "Victory at Sea" Coffee Vanilla Porter. We made some good decisions.

It was starting to get late, and we had not eaten anything yet, so we went to Melt for lunch.

One of the servers at Melt gave me this with some Pop Rocks!!

Whitney got The Flash!!!

For me to say that they were busy would be an understatement. Luckily we decided to get our food TOGO. I got the Mac Melt with some bacon in it(cause bacon makes everything better), and Whitney went with the Meatloaf Melt. I have to say that the Meatloaf Melt was not that bad. I have to make a trip back this week for one of my own.

After a long night of work and deciding not to go out for dinner(both of us were tired by that time), I fixed some Jambalaya and had my cupcakes from earlier.

Now it's Sunday morning. We had talked earlier in the week about going to Alabama Biscuit on Sunday. That's exactly what we did. If you never been, you really should try to go out there. It's a small place, but I liked it that way.

 Whitney's fresh squeezed Orange Juice

 My Hot Chocolate looks nice and pretty, huh?

 Best Ham and Cheese Biscuit Ever!!!

Whitney's Crispy Pancetta looked awesome!!!

I can't believe that we got filled from just those biscuits and had no sides to go with them.

After eating some brunch, we made a quick stop to Target for some grocery shopping. We also went to GameStop and got some new games. Whitney got Bully and I got Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Since we was around the area, we went to make a trip to Heavenly Donuts for a quick treat(many thanks to Magic City Bloggers for this idea).

Now that we doughnuts, games, and groceries, it's time to go home and relax before we make dinner that night. We played our games and ate our doughnuts. They were so delicious.

Oreo Doughnuts are nothing to play around with.

We decided to fix the Beer Enchilada Dip that we love so much. If you never had it before, you should try it out(click here for the recipe).

 You know you want this!!!

Had this delicious beer to go with it.

Even though we might not have had a big, fancy Valentine's weekend, I have to say that it was one of the best weekend I've had with my wife. Just being able to spend time with her means the world to me. I will take games, doughnuts, beer, and grilled cheese with my wife over anything any day of the week.

Hope your Valentine's Day went well, and hope everyone stays warm and dry this week!!


  1. Beer enchilada dip? I am going to have to try that one! Your weekend sounds a but like ours, snacks and gaming for the win! I am so glad that you guys like Heavenly Donuts! I wish it was closer to our house so that we could stop on the weekend!

    1. Yea. I think I accidently put down beer when it should have been beef. My bad, but its still hella good though. You should try it.

  2. I just came across your blog, from Vancouver. Beer and cheese and coffee - yes! Looks like you 2 had an awesome Valentines day filled with love!

    1. Yea. Since I work in a restaurant, its hard to celebrate those kind of holidays. Thats when we make a day out of it and celebrate it our way.
