A Very Undead Valentine’s Day

Chris and I celebrated Valentine’s Day this year with a zombie-filled evening. Zombie-themed dinner, zombie-themed decor, and zombie-themed entertainment. Totally romantic, I know. I tried to explain it to a friend of mine when she asked what our Vday plans were…but it just ended up with a “that’s just how we roll.” Can’t explain it…but we sure had fun :)

The whole plan stemmed from the idea of seeing Warm Bodies in the theater. Romantic comedy about zombies?? Excellent! But it turns out that Warm Bodies doesn’t get released here in Stavanger until April 5! (Come on Norway… you release the new Die Hard on the same day as the US, but not Warm Bodies?? Whyyy?) So we got caught up on The Walking Dead instead. Not quite as romantic as a zombie in love (and a lot more terrifying), but there’s nothing like a night of watching the undead eat struggling survivors to remind us why we love each other!

Our Zombie Dinner Menu:

Bone-in Ribs (with a bloody  spicy BBQ sauce)

Mashed Brains (mashed potatoes and parsnips dyed pink)

Eyeballs (glazed radishes)

Femurs (garlic bread)

Bile (virgin raspberry mojitos)

and for dessert….. cheesecake. We’re mildly sophisticated zombies over here.

Since I forgot to take a “before” photo, the box is full of candy and chocolate, I just rewrapped them!*

And continuing with the theme of chocolates, my man definitely knows what I like :)

 

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY from C²!!

 

* As much as I’d love for you all to think I came up with this on my own, I feel I must cite my sources. I adapted the idea from here.

    Wow, what a fun event! Very festive! And yes, I totally agree that ourselves and our excuses are what hold us back. I read a quote or something recently that said something to the effect of “time passes anyway… so you might as well spend your time working toward something you actually want instead of just letting the days pass.” I loved your comment yesterday, ironically enough- the day i published that post happened to be a down day for me. lol. I think the reality of LIVING here is setting in. I am working to get a schedule and plan events I can look forward to and do while Scott is working. Until next time!
