[ samoa cookies & phone screens ]

it all started at 10:00am. our first Valentines day together. and if there hadn’t been any other lovely things in this day, that right there woulda made it special enough. sleeping ’till 10. ahhh.
Valentines-18
so, there’s this little work shed in the woods across from our place that I’ve seen and always admired its little red door. A bit grungy, but kinda Valentinesy. :)
then, there’s this guy. he puts up with my little whims so often…and poses for me to get the camera lighting right…through bitter temperatures and crazy wind…and is a sweet fella to be around…like, pretty much all the time.Valentines-1
Valentines-4
Valentines-3i think he kinda likes me, too.
he also takes good pictures of my little braid. side note: i like braids and hope they are always in style. considering they were cool in the pioneer days, i think they always will be. :)

ah yes, the title of this post.
that’s easy. i made him Samoa (girl-scout) cookies because they make him happy. if i were to hashtag in a blog, it would go something like this: #timidbaker #overheatedchocolate #hardtomake #sothat’swhyeveryonemakeschocolatechipcookies.
Valentines-6
but you know what? he loved them, even if i physically forced the chocolate onto the cookie instead of drizzling it.
Valentines-5
and yep, he got my cracked phone screen replaced. (*hooray!!*) which, ironically neither of us broke. it used to be his, and without mentioning names, we’ll just say that some *ahem* groomsmen…nevermind, it’s fixed now. :)
Valentines-7
before we blew away, we went to look at potential new houses…
because ya know, that’s a pretty romantic thing to do.

Valentines-15
then thanks to some sweet friends (yay gift-cards), on to Longhorn, where we called ahead, and there was an hour and 45 min. wait. no joke. Valentines-17
so, we passed the time at goodwill, and found a childhood memory to play with. always loved this globe.
Valentines-16
can’t call it your 1st Valentines day without a good, romantic…ol’ disney cartoon, haha. (didn’t know if our normal choice – Andy Griffith – was quite romantic enough ;)
Valentines-19
still loving all these “firsts.” but have a strange feeling we’ll enjoy the seconds, thirds, etc. too. :) and because you can’t have a Valentine’s Day post without 1 kissing picture. there.
Valentines-2
