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)
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!
