Hope everyone is having a happy Valentines/Singles Awareness Day/whatever suits your fancy. I myself, have had a pretty awesome day lounging around the apartment. I slept 12 hours last night and it felt amazing. I still feel a little blegh, but not nearly as bad as last night. I may even go to classes tomorrow. When I woke up, I stumbled to the bathroom, and saw my iPod and two envelopes next to the sink. Which was confusing, because I hadn't remembered leaving my iPod there. One of the envelopes said "Open me", the other said "wait". So I opened the one I was supposed to, and this is what it said:
Good morning sweety! Now, there's another envelope here. I want you to NOT look at that yet. I went out yesterday to pick up some roses for you, but couldn't find any. They were all out! Anways, there's this article in the Herald-Sun (you can see it at www.heraldsun.com/business/21-818828.cfm)
aobut how roses are toxic and not good for your health! But I got something that should make you just as happy. Now, I put a song on your iPod, which is sitting there on the sink. I have it set to that song. If it isn't set, you want "Kelly's Valentine Song". put on your iPod and start listening. Follow the arrows to the gift once down reading this note. When you get there, I want you to open up the second envelope.
So I turn on my iPod, and my Valentine song is Frank Sinatra's "The Way you Look Tonight". Michael had drawn little arrows that led to my desk...where he'd set a bouquet of a dozen roses. I then opened the second envelope, which said:
Gotcha! Happy Valentines Day!
What a butthead. I love him. :P
After my exhausting journey to the desk, I laid on the couch pretty much non-stop. Did manage to get a lot of new testament homework done and child development. Ran out to the Teeter to do Michael's present. I got him dark chocolate truffle and peanut butter hershey kisses, and wrote out 100 'kisses', for things/reasons why I love him. Yeah, you can gag now. He liked it.
When he came home, he had one last surprise for me. Tuesday night while I was in class, he'd made something for me and wrapped it up in aluminum foil, with a big note that said don't peek in the fridge. Somehow, I managed to listen (I'm really bad at that, apparently). He let me open it up and it was a homemade heart shaped red velvet cake. Freaking awesome. So we had that for dessert, along with mint chocolate chip ice cream, after our fabulous Valentine's dinner of steak, baked potato, and crescent rolls. Yeah...I need to go get on the bike. But who needs a $100 overpriced dinner just because it's February 14th? Not me.
So I hope you all have had a wonderful day; even if you don't buy into the 'hallmark-y' style, it's still nice to take a minute and let the ones you love know how much you appreciate them. One of my favorite Valentine's days was cooking tortellini with afadingvoice
and watching movies at her apartment. I'm a simple girl, what can I say. Love you all!
