“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

I had a GREAT Valentine’s Day weekend.

And a productive one.

Kris and I started the weekend by attending “Romance Night” at Firefly Studio.  We were one of only two couples that came in for it, but we had a lot of fun.  We worked on a sushi platter with two sauce bowls. 

Our inspiration?

Kris’s cell phone.

He has a Japanese-themed skin on his Razr from Decalgirl.  Specifically, he has this skin:

Zen Revisited

And this is the (unfired) result:

Our sushi set

After firing it will be glossy red and black.

But that was only the start of the evening.  Afterward, it was a nice seafood dinner, and then a deluxe hotel room at the Doubletree, with an amazing view of the city and the Arkansas River, champagne, and some serious quality child-free couple time.

Saturday morning was complimentary breakfast, a trip to the Barnes and Noble Cafe, and home.

And there is more to come.   The house cleaning wasn’t the only stress-reducing gift from my husband.  This has been the best Valentine’s Day EVER!  I also have a gift certificate for a half-day of “the works” at a local day spa:  Manicure, pedicure, one hour facial and a full-hour, full body, massage.

I absolutely cannot wait.

Any of you girls want to join me?
