Now back to January…
Zach celebrated his 33rd birthday January 23rd. My MIL Cindy planned a big surprise and brought Allie to Atlanta for Zach's birthday weekend. It was SOOO great to have both of them in town with us for an unexpected visit.
The first weekend in February was a big one for our church. Zach's new campus finally opened and it was a great first Sunday.
On Valentine's Eve, Zach and I decided to get fancied up and head downtown for a night on the town. Even though there was still snow on the ground, it didn't stop me from throwing on some peep toe heels (which I never get to wear anymore).
Zach and I decided to go to Rathbun's, one of Kevin Rathbun's well-known restaurants. It. Was. So. Good. Such a fun night!
Allie flew in on Valentine's Day for the 3-day weekend and we had a few love-ly surprises for her. One was this Valentine's Day gift- a new dress inspired by her love of Venice. Can't you just imagine her riding on a gondola in this?!
I seriously love wrapping presents.
Since Al loves the movie Titanic (and I mean crazy, obsessive loves it) I decided to throw her a Titanic-themed Valentine's Day party. It was so fun to come up with this invitation, entertainment, and thematic menu items.
And Zach… well he surprised us all and whipped up this lifelike rose. Who knew he could draw like this?!
Laser tag arena. So fun.
In addition to the laser tag, they also had this laser maze experience where you have to try and climb through a web of lasers like… like you are breaking into a bank vault or something. Haha! Allie ended up schooling all of us on this one and beating all our times by a long shot. :)
Also this weekend Allie left a sweet note for Zach in the doorway to her room. (It was so cute I had to share it). The night before, Allie had accidentally left her door locked. Zach had teased her about being a teenager now and locking the door so this was her response. :)
