Justin: Our first date was on Feb.21 2009 which also happened to be the day we decided to celebrate Valentine's Day since we missed it. AND that was the year of the AMC Best Picture Showcase...more on that extravaganza next week.
So ever since then, we've celebrated Valentine's Day on the 21st of February each year. Our anniversary is March 14th so we don't get presents for each other, just cards. So with that, I always try to rock a sweet card. We decided to go Chuck's Southern Comfort Cafe...ohhh man EAT HERE. It's so good. Best mac n' cheese in the world.
Anyways, before the feast we exchanged cards:
So this image of a heart dressed in a sweater is our way of saying, I Love You. When we first started dating Nic and I would talk on the phone sometimes and I remember she blurted, I Love Youuuuur Sweater. It just cracked us up.
On to the food!
We had the bruschetta as an appetizer. Nic had the BBQ Pork Nachos and I had the Crab Cake dinner. YUMMMMMMMMM! Go here...seriously.
Did you have a good Valentime's Day?
Nicole: Justin is right in that we started saying I love your sweater to mean I love you when we had begun feeling those feelings, but the actual saying originated from something else. It was actually a dream that I had when we first started dating. I remember telling Justin my dream and being very nervous to tell him because it was such an interesting dream that I had to tell him, but I didn't want to freak him out with the "L" word too early in our relationship and no, I don't mean lesbians!) I was walking to the train to work in the morning when I called Justin to tell him about my dream. The gist of it was that I had wanted to tell him "I love you" but I got nervous so it came out "I love you...rrr sweater" It may have been my subconscious talking to me, but at the time I wasn't ready to say that out loud. Now...well...now I just can't say it enough. Sweater my Love.
Happy Valentimes Day!
