Valentine's Weekend 2010, briefly

Friday we watched the Olympics' opening ceremony. I love the Olympics! I adore the patriotism that oozes from spectators rooting for their country's athletes. Frankly, I love cheering on the athletes representing the US!
{For the first time in my life, I have actually visited an Olympic host city!}

Saturday we woke to trees coated in frost and fresh snowflakes; it was beautiful and lasted nearly all day. We watched Dexter {Season 1} and the first games of the Olympics before getting ready for our dinner date downtown. Dinner was outstanding and my date was delightful.

Sunday I woke up, made some breakfast and continued to watch Olympic coverage before getting ready for our family celebration. My mom invited us along with my brother and his wife for an early dinner (or late lunch, depending on how you look at it). Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures, outside of the dessert. But the meal was wonderful - potato dumplings, ribs, asparagus - and the company outstanding. Yum. Dessert was a meringue cupcake filled with raspberry curd, whipped cream and fresh raspberries. Double-yum. Seriously. Makes sense why I took a picture, no?
