Happy Valentine's Day!

I received this beautiful arrangement of roses yesterday at the office.  It was totally unexpected.  I love my husband, but normally he's not much of a planner.  He's usually right in the middle of the sea of men shopping the day before or the day of Valentine's Day.  This year, he thought a head at least a few days!  Since he knows I am on a diet, he didn't do the chocolate covered strawberries that I normally get.  For that, I am thankful because I have NO self control when it comes to eating those things.  But, I tell ya this time of year, a person could seriously consider switching careers into the flower business! The guy that brought my flower arrangement yesterday had a tough time finding mine in a van of roses!  I also got a mani-pedi.  How do I know this already, you ask?!  Well, my brilliant husband bought it with his business debit card.  I do all of our banking online, so yesterday when I was doing the daily report, my favorite nail place showed up in the bank register, so I knew what he was up to!  So, a lesson to all of you men out there...USE CASH to buy gifts for your girls!  I still haven't used my massage he got me for Christmas, so I think maybe very soon I'll combine those gift certificates and have a "ME" day!

Shelby celebrated  Valentine's Day with her class at school yesterday. She had a great time. She came home with lots of awesome cards in her home-made box. I think she went into sugar shock on the way home due to the brownies, cookies, juice, and candy she consumed at the party and in the van. I thought back to my days in Elementary School. I loved the class parties, but V-day was always my favorite. I loved getting the cards. The candy was great too, along with the games but my absolute favorite was the card exchange.  

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone from our house to yours.

ROFLOL!!! I love this.
I always hated Valentines Day because my husband was trapped into the thinking he HAD to go get me flowers. Oh don't get me wrong, They were beautiful and I loved them BUT 2 weeks later I ALWAYS got the bill that went with them!!
2007 was the ONLY Valentines I received flowers I didn't have to pay for and the last ones I ever received. I still have them :)
