Did everyone have a good Valentine's day? I for one am glad that Valentine's day is over, only for the simple fact that I want to see something besides red and pink heart crafts all over my google reader.
We celebrated Valentine's day yesterday. When I got up with Ava in the morning, there was a sweet card waiting for me. I woke up hubby at 8, and we exchanged presents. He's lucky he got to sleep in until 8, I was DYING for him to open his presents. I have no patience when it comes to people opening gifts I get for them. I was ready for him to open them two weeks ago when I bought them.
I got him a Thaigo Silva collectors figure (he has a HUGE collection of UFC figures), and two books. One is a Spartan workout guide thingy, and the other is a book by Forrest Griffin. It's called "Be Ready When the Sh*t Goes Down, a Survival Guide to the Apocalypse." Totally goofy, but I know my hubby would love it. You have to love a book that has a quiz titled "When it's time to eat your friend".
For me? Hubby got me the wall decal and shower curtain I talked about in my home goals, and an IOU for a can of paint in my choice of color. And some chocolate covered strawberries, which apparently have been hidden in the fridge for two days. Shows how often I dig thru the fridge. Oops.
|Yeah, I look like crap. But Ava looks adorable.|
And then we called the girls in so they could get their presents. Chocolate for the big girls.
And a puppy dog for Ava.
My oldest daughter gave us her gift. She made us a sweet card in computer class at school.
That night, Hubby, Ava and I went out to dinner while the big girls went to Awana. We went to Carino's, an Italian restaurant I've been wanting to try. Pretty darn good. I had the chicken parmesan, spaghetti and an entire mini loaf of bread. By myself. I can't help it, this girl loves her carbs. A no carb diet would be my idea of Hell. I couldn't do it. No way, no how.
And then today, both big girls had their school Valentine's parties. Luckily they were at different times so I was able to make it to both.
And then we went and had lunch with daddy at his work.
All in all, I had a freaking awesome Valentine's Day. I know, I know. A wall decal and a can of paint doesn't sound very Valentine-sy. But, I think it's different when you're married than when you're dating. He gets me flowers often enough that getting them because a holiday says you're "supposed" to is whatever. Him taking the time to always read my blog and listen to me talk about what I really want to redecorate? Now that's LOVE. I'll take that over a stuffed teddy bear and a box of chocolates any day.
Happy 5th Valentine's Day together, baby!
