Dates are my favorite thing.

Hello, this post will be pretty image heavy. My term just ended and I absolutely hated this class, so I've been really stressed and busy. I'm really trying not to neglect this blog, but time keeps slipping away from me. Anyway, the boyfriend and I have been going out a lot, I think because he knew how much I was struggling with this last term. We went to see Chronicle, which was amazing, went to see Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 3D, which I did not care for, and of course we went out for Valentine's Day!

For the first two dates I actually did my makeup as full-out as possible, but on V-day since it was sort of just an "us" day I went simple.
My skin has been awful lately, I think because of the stress.
At some point during our date binge, we finally tried the Japanese style crepe stand in our mall. Now we're addicted to UniCone. Originally, when we went to see Star Wars we were just going on a crepe run, but Zach really wanted to see it so I caved.

I'm not sure how common these stands are, apparently they're gaining some popularity.
Valentine's Day was amazing. We did what we normally do, pretty much, but Zach took the day off of work so that we could have the whole day together. We ran a few errands, hung out at my house, walked the mall, and went out to eat. We also exchanged gifts (he got baked goods as usual ;-;) but I'll save that until the end.
I also tried something new at Cafe Pho, which is kind of "our place" now.

I wore my favorite dress, on Valentine's Day. I'm really happy because it doesn't feel tight on my arms anymore. I've lost about 5 pounds so I felt really good.
A bit blurry, sorry.
I'm doing reverse White's Day for Zach, since V-day really seemed to be about me this year. He always treats me so sweetly and gives me the most amazing gifts. I really need to get a job so I can at the very least pick up checks once in awhile, he is just way to giving. Anyway, on to what Zach gave me.


There's a hair on it in this picture, lol.

I'm still kind of in shock. The necklace is even more beautiful and special in person. I especially love the little padded box it came in, my eyes sort of well up when I hold it. It's like the message emanates from the necklace. I'm so lucky to have someone so loving in my life! I hope everyone else gets the chance to feel this way.

Ok, I think that's enough for this post. It got way too mushy for my taste. thank you so much for reading, as usual! I appreciate it ♥
