Valentine's Day

Yeah, I know it's March now. But I have been seriously lacking in the blogging department. So Chase and I did not celebrate Valentine's Day at all this year. We didn't get each other gifts because we don't have money. Our stake was putting on a Valentine's Sock Hop. We got all dressed up for it, showed up. Not to sound mean but it was like one of those stake dances that no one danced, and everyone just sat around. I think it would've been better if we had a couple to go with.
 The next night. Chase and I crashed (maybe not crashed) our old wards Valentine's Dance. It was a lot more fun, and we actually danced. They did repeat a few songs, because there wasn't much to dance to. But we had a lot of fun, and even danced. Yup can you believe it he danced with me! Well it only happens once a year.

Sunday we went down to Chase's parents for dinner on Valentine's Day. Had a good dinner with the family. Monday I made this DELICIOUS Chocolate Elegance. Here's a picture of it.

It may not look the best but oh how delicious was it!

Here's the recipe from the website I got it from.

  1. I'm glad you guys still did something fun, or tried to do something, for Valentine's day. Too bad people were acting like teenagers and not dancing.

    The cake looks delish.
