My Valentine's Day

Welcome ICLW bloggers!

On Valentine's Day, Steve and I went to Bethel College for their "Couples Dinner."  It was a great evening.  It was a room full of couples that got married after meeting at Bethel College.  Dinner was very tasty.  After dinner, we went to see Bethel's performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream coat.  The dinner and play were both included in the cost of the event.  The actors did such a great job.  I have seen the play once before, but Steve hadn't.  We had such a great time.  Then after dinner some friends from Michigan came down to see us and they met us at the theater.  Steve and I don't get to get out of the house and just spend fun times together very much anymore with us being so busy.  It was nice to get out and have a fun evening together.

The second part of our Valentine's Day celebration was on Saturday.  Steve got us tickets to see Comedian John Branyan at the Blue Gate Theater in Shipshewana.  I had never been there before.  That place is beautiful.  The tickets included dinner too and, Oh my gosh, was the food good.  I have to admit that service was less than stellar. We barely saw our server until we was bringing us dessert.  I think she filled out drinks once.  I guess that's what you get when you tip is included in the ticket price. It was so worth it though.
John Branyan was hilarious.  I laughed so hard.

Dinner was Cornish game hen, red potatoes, salad, and bread.  The salad dressing I got was their homemade French and it was so yummy.  The fresh bread they brought to the table was really good and they gave us Amish Peanut Butter and homemade Apple Butter to put on it.
For dessert...I think the picture tells you all you need to know.  I still have some left that I have to finish at home.  The piece was huge.


  1. Yay for a good Valentine's Day!
