Valentine's Surprise! My Australian Themed Date

Happy Valentine's day!
Okay, so we all know that I'm a really broke college student who is lucky to get $100 a week from work, and trying to pay rent that is too high for my wallet. So for Valentine's Day, I wanted to do something for Shawn, but I had to get a bit more creative. His ideal date is to go scuba diving in Australia, so I turn our Apartment into an Australian getaway, hahah!

In our hallway, I posted this sign for Shawn to see when he walked in. The Kangaroo is his first clue (because I sent him on a scavenger hunt)


Some decorations to set the "Australian" Mood. (Like I said, I'm broke, so I had to make due with what I had)

There were two clue for him, with a surprise at each stop. The Kangaroo led him to a Shamrock Shake (because we love them!) and the Koala led him to a slideshow that I made for us.

And at the end of the slideshow, It led him out to our "beach" where we had yummy bacon wrapped shrimp, regular shrimp with rosemary, and for dessert I made an Australian delicacy- Pavalove. It was AMAZING. I've never made one before, but it was fantastic. Here's where I got the recipe, if you want to try it out!

The image quality isn't the best, but I took these with my phone and hurried before Shawn came home from work. He was so surprised and he LOVED it. I'm glad he did, because a lot of effort went into it.

Happy Valentine's Day!!
