I love LOVE

May the force be with you update: Such an enjoyable weekend spent catching up with my husband. We lead busy lives so it is nice to slow down and just spend time with each other. And that is exactly what we did over the past couple of days.

On Saturday we decided to check out the annual Skywalk Golf course downtown. I was defeated, but I did have three hole-in-ones for the day, so I considered that a success. After team One Under Thunder finished up, we decided to reward ourselves with a couple of cocktails at one of my favorite bars in Des Moines, the Cosmopolitan Lounge at The Suites of 800 Locust.

Warmed up by imbibing a bit, we headed across the river to Luna Bistro for what ended up being such a lovely evening. We both can’t say enough good things about the service, ambiance and quality of food at this local gem and are eagerly awaiting our return.

Sunday was lazy and relaxing – just what I needed to completely gear up for this week.

How cute are my Anthropologie ceramics? Love them!

There is a lot going on this week. Tomorrow, of course is Valentine’s Day, so you know I’ve got something up my sleeve.

So without further adieu, here are a few lovey-dovey gifts that any gal would love from her Valentine.
