I got a box of chocolates! Maybe I do like Valentine's Day!

So, I've never been a Valentine's Day person. It's such a Hallmarky holiday, and Hello! Love me and cherish me everyday, thankyouverymuch! I guess with it being on a weekend this year, I decided to actually get Jesse a gift and we even went out to dinner! I got him a chinese dragon tea cup and some Ritter Sport bars, and he got me a fancy box of chocolates! Thank goodness Jesse bought me these, because they're so expensive I probably never would have tried one! Missionary Chocolates LLC makes vegan, organic, local ingredient truffles here in Portland and sells them in various places. A few months ago, someone on the PPK mentioned that they were sold at a wedding shop in Jantzen Beach (where Jesse works), so I couldn't resist but strongly drop the hint! I've only sampled the Sweet Raspberry Heart so far, and honestly - IT IS THE BEST TRUFFLE I HAVE EVER HAD, VEGAN OR NOT! Oh man, I am in chocolate heaven!

Only 7 left...

On our way to dinner at the Vita...

Dinner was awesome, but I forgot to bring the camera :( . I got a $50 gift certificate for $25 from a radio station deal last month, so we went all out at the Vita! The best thing hands down were the Buffalo Things - tofu buffalo wings. I've never had the real kind before so I had no idea what to expect, but Jesse misses them a lot and sorta freaked out over the deliciousness! He thought all of his meat eating friends would like the tofu ones just as much as the meat version!

Someone else's photo of the Buffalo Things! Thanks Google!

Hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day, or a rockin' anti-Valentine's Day! Either way, you better have had some chocolate!!!

Update on Cookie Dookie after her spay surgery:
I haven't mentioned the kitties in my last couple posts... Cookie has been acting funny ever since her surgery. Tomorrow will be the official 2 week mark when she's supposed to be back to normal, but I was really getting worried because she hasn't been as lovey with me as she used to be. She always loved to be held on her back like a baby, and hasn't been letting me hold her that way. She also wasn't waking me up in the morning by licking my face! All is back to normal, though, she just took a little while. I finally got a picture of her exposed hairless belly, and it's pretty cute! I get to cut her stitches out tomorrow, yay! Thanks for all your love and support, blogger buddies! :)

I woke her up taking the picture... look at her feet! haha

Close up... I wonder how long until that fur grows back?

Sounds like you had a lovely V Day and good to hear Cookie is feeling better, some animals take longer to return to their normal selves post-anaesthetic.

River said...

Aww, how sweet! I want those chocolates!

Cookie is so cute with her furless belly and her little feet hanging off the chair! I have a thing for kitty's feet.

Cookies just adorable, I love her little feet. It's always worrying when they have an op and the spaying is a full on op too. Glad to hear she's back to her old self.
Those Chocolates look DIVINE! and so do the Buffalo things (LOVE that name).
So happy you had a lovely V Day and were spoiled rotten - you deserve it.
