1) With the girls
I did a few different things with my friends for Valentine's Day. We made Valentine's Day themed cake pops and wrote cards for our friends. The cake pops took forever and we had problems melting the chocolate for coating the cake pops, but they turned out really nicely in the end.
2) With the houses
Page House held a Galentine's Day event the night before, featuring cookie decorating, waffle making, nail art, and the movie Chicago. Fleming House has an annual tradition of everyone working together to write cute notes for the other members of Fleming. These are delivered to each person's room with either chocolates or roses.
3) With the boyfriend
Finally, my boyfriend of three years took me out to dinner at Bestia and had roses delivered to me at school. It was so sweet! Bestia is an Italian restaurant in DTLA. We tried the kumquat and yogurt salad, the clam pizza, the bone marrow (pictured), the Dungeness crab spaghetti (also pictured), the lamb's neck, and the chocolate budino tart. My favorite dish was the bone marrow, but everything was delicious. I want to go back to try all their other dishes. Their menu changes seasonally.
