As part of our Valentine's Day together (which we celebrated on Saturday do to Patrick's work schedule), Pat and I took a trip to the mall (we were going to go downtown, but I just couldn't handle walking around in 45 degree windy weather). And yes, this was what Pat wanted to do - no encouraging from me needed! Patrick loves to shop, and I'm happy to indulge him :)
I found a few cute things: a $5 black cotton dress from Old Navy, some great black jeans for $15 from PacSun (Pat's favorite place for super skinny jeans) and the best of all! My new boots from Aldo:
They were on sale by quite a bit, but still more than I really should have spent. I justified it by saying that I hadn't spent a lot on a pair of shoes in like 5 years and I don't know that I've found boots I love quite as much in that time either :) I wore them for like 8 hours straight on Saturday - mostly standing - so my feet were sore and swollen on Sunday... and still a little today... but it was totally worth it!!
Pat tells me that punks (Pat used to be quite the punk rocker in his youth, and still is a little bit) used to were chokers and collars around their boots like this, so it's very hard core. Just like me ;)
I want to wear them all day everyday!
Saturday night was also the sort-of-debut of the band of our friends Angel, Brian & Bryan - CUSSES.
It was a seriously good time. Angel (singing/keyboarding) was totally channeling Karen O and the Bry/ians were amazing. Awesome dancing, fist pumping fun!
We also went out for a yummy Thai dinner and I made Patrick a breakfast full of heart-shaped foods. All in all, a wonderful Valentine's Day had by all!
