I was reflecting on Valentine’s Day yesterday after looking at posts on Facebook.  Some were so excited about the dinner their significant other treated them to or flowers they were given, etc.  My thought has so often been — flower costs rise for the simple fact it is Valentine’s Day.  I would much rather my husband buy me flowers once or twice a year just for the heck of it than him go along with the crowd and send me flowers at the inflated price on February 14th which die.  I’m romantic like that!

I thought about how people have their significant others buy them massages and do something “special” for them on Valentine’s Day.  I realized how blessed I am.  My husband does all of these things throughout the year just because he loves me and not because it’s a specific date.  I don’t get flowers once a week, but who wants that?  My husband brings me flowers “for everything you do.”  My husband makes me dinner because well, he enjoys letting me sit back and relax while he cooks, serves me dinner and then will often even do the dishes after.  My husband gives me a massage because he knows I don’t like paying for the expensive massages.  Hubby spreads these things throughout the year and makes me feel special all of the time and not just because it’s February 14th.

Yesterday, Hubby and I both took off work to spend the day together per my request.  I had a coupon for IHop to buy 1 entree, get 1 free so we went to breakfast.  Next, we went to visit my friend TR in the hospital because she just had a baby.  Congrats TR!  We shopped for gliders for the baby’s room and video cameras, then rented a Redbox (free with promo code!), went home and relaxed and watched a movie.  To me, it was a perfect day.  My husband was attentive to what I wanted to do, I wasn’t fretting over spending a lot of money, I got to use my coupons and I spent the entire day relaxing and spending time with my husband. 

Everyone is different.  Not everyone gets a thrill out of using coupons like I do.  I honestly would be upset if my husband did go out and spent money on diamonds for me.  To each their own I suppose.

To Hubby, thank you for making me feel special all year long and not just sending me flowers once a year because it’s Valentine’s Day.  I love you!

I had a rough week last week.  I was upset because I had a misunderstanding with a good friend and I got a stomach virus.  Friday I came home and finished making out my grocery list for Thanksgiving.  When I returned home, Hubby and stepdaughter met me in the garage to unload groceries.  I entered the kitchen and saw this:

I leaned over onto the counter crying and sobbing out loud.  I’m glad I don’t get flowers all of the time, but Hubby seems to know when I need them most!  The note says, “We just wanted to say thanks for all you do.  Love, Hubby and Stepdaughter.”

Hubby had me a surprise birthday party which I talked about here and here.  I’ll wait while you go read those.  Done? 

RL came to pick me up to go to the mall.  We made a quick trip and were going to go watch the first part of the UK game.  RL did a really good job.  She asked me where I would like to go.  Then she lightly suggested we COULD go to Shooters.  I smiled and politely said ok.

We got to Shooters and were going in the front door and I heard someone yell my name in a Spanish voice.  I looked over and there was my hubby with a sombrero hat on and a fake mustache!  RL and I walked over, went through the fence of the patio area and walked in the back door.



I was shocked at how many people were there to surprise me.  I was crying laughing because everyone was wearing sombreros and fake mustaches (including my grandfather)!  It was hysterical!

Hubby decorated all of the tables, had a banner hanging on the wall, streamers hanging, etc.  Hubby did a really good job planning my birthday party.


The banner hubby had made for me (with a small edit)

Everyone hung out and I mingled with everyone.  Then we had cake.  A lady at hubby’s work made it for me.  With FONDANT!  And the shakers were made out of  Rice Krispies with FONDANT around it.   (Do you watch cake boss?  Next time you do, listen to how many times they say fondant.)  Observe:


30th Birthday Cake



How were the Rice Krispie shakers ladies?  There were some funny pictures with the shakers with certain innuendos being suggested which are not appropriate for here.  You can use your imagination if you weren’t there.

Thank you to everyone who came and made my 30th birthday special.  AND thank you hubby for my party.  It was the best birthday EVA!  Guess what I want for my 40th birthday, hubby?
