V-Day Extravaganza

Happy Monday everyone! Well this Valentine's Day weekend was one to remember!
Friday night we had dinner with a side of snow! That's right, a fabulous winter wonderland here in GA makes for a beautiful backdrop. Then Saturday we went shopping (I needed an outfit for my brother's wedding next weekend) and I got the cutest dress! I can't wait to wear it!
And then there was Sunday, Valentine's Day.
Now this was a day to remember for all time!
We spent the afternoon in Atlanta taking some pictures and then went to Passion City Church at 6:00pm. When we came out at 8:00, our car was booted. Now when we originally got there, Chris went to the machine to pay and it wouldn't come on. It's not uncommon for the church to comp parking wherever they meet, so that's what we thought happened. Oh no, it costs us a whopping $75 to free our car! I was sooo angry! I would have been unconsolable if that boot had made us miss our dinner reservations!
We heard from some of our friends that the Waffle House was having a special Valentine's Day candle light dinner. Now Chris and I just thought this was hilarious!
So of course we made reservations.
It was sooo funny! I felt kind of bad for how funny I thought it was because all of the employees took it very seriously.
They had the jukebox on a continuous run of classic love songs. One of my favorites was "I don't know much, but I know I love you". Chris and I were cracking up! The tables all had plastic table cloths with red hearts all over them. Then there was a single candle in the middle of the table and some plastic rose thing.
It was great. I mean seriously, where else can you get 2 meals, 2 drinks, and dessert for under $15?
It took us all of 23 minutes to eat and leave. Chris felt it was a bit depressing - like we were in some old washed up town!
So all in all, it was a great weekend. Now, here's a few photos from our fabulous Waffle House experience:
