Valentine's Day Weekend

We originally didn't have anything special planned for Valentine's Day. Dan suggested steak dinner and that we should celebrate Valentine's on February 13th instead of the 14th since it's cheaper...he he. Being the understanding wife, I agreed :p

On Saturday, February 12th, I suddenly craved "high tea". High tea is an afternoon English tea time where people (mostly women/girls/ladies) gather together to chit chat and sip tea and yummy scones, tea sandwiches, and petit fours/desserts. Since it was kind of last minute and I didn't make any previous plans, I asked Dan to accompany me. At first, Dan hesitated (as most guys would), but being the wonderful husband that he is, he reluctantly agreed!

I found this really cute place in Pleasanton called the English Rose. We managed to grab a last minute reservation at this place. The place was really cute! Loved the shabby chic decoration and the soft pink/green color combo (just like our wedding color combo!).

Poor Dan, he was the only guy in the whole room! :) The place was packed with all kinds of females ranging from 5 year old girls to grandmas! I think that Dan secretly enjoyed the experience...he he.

Dan ordered the "Serene Green" tea and I ordered the "Strawberry Kiwi" tea. The food finally came in a three tiered tray. The scones were sooo good (served warm). Almost everything we tried was pretty good and hopefully Dan will accompany me again back to this place!

The next day we went to Forbes Mill Steakhouse in Los Gatos for our Valentine's Dinner. The restaurant was packed with nearly all couples. They had a Valentine's special which was not too bad price wise. The food, however, was a little disappointing. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't awesome. The Kona Coffee creme brulee was pretty good though!
