Post Val-Day Trauma

My Valentine date and I had agreed to a quiet evening in our newly updated dining room. He had even bought me flowers for the occasion. I was to prepare Roasted Shrimp Enchiladas with Jalapeno Cream Sauce. YUM! (Been waiting all week to try this recipe.)

My date was available to go to the grocery store with me, so we headed out early afternoon to run several errands and to grocery shop. On the way to our first errand we began talking about what we would like to do to finish our house transformation and before we really realized what had happened it was pushing the early evening hour. About 6 furniture/accessory stores later (including a quick trip back home for pillows to match fabric) there was still no food for our date night menu. HERE IS WHERE THE TRAUMA BEGINS. Every person that lives in and around our little town of almost 100thou was driving on the main west to east loop and north to south highway. That would be 100 thousand cars in a 4 square mile radius. The traffic was worse than the holiday shopping time of year. I love my man! He would have been happy with a sandwich if it meant we didn't have to go grocery shopping. (I found salmon in the freezer and the meal was fabulous!) 

This morning I had my usual e-mail notification from Craftsy of the number of pattern downloads. The free download usually ranges from 2 to 5 per day. 648 Heart Attack downloads yesterday. Seems like there were some last minute internet shoppers too. If you still need a heart, you can find the pattern here....
