Feb 10th. my birthay.
Feb 14th. valentine's day.
i started dating the husband in Jan of 2005, right before my 21st birthday & right before valentine's day. at the time he thought that was pretty awesome.
sweet & romantic right from the start. kick ass. he got me Maroon 5 tickets that first year, sealed the deal he did.
now he curses me for being born so close to the national day for love. like it's my fault my parents copulated at the tail end of spring. gross.
regardless- he does well. every year. almost as good as me (if you didn't know, i'm a gift giving fiend). this year i have a sizable gift card to a local shoe store & i spent the majority of last friday downing an Edible Arangement. not sure what's in store for V-day yet- but i'm am sure it's bomb.
what did i get him you ask? a pretty gnarly watch. a wooden watch at that:

& what makes it even better: you buy a watch- they plant a tree. boom. i'm helping the universe. you're welcome.
right about now i should show you ultra cute pictures of my kids decked out in hearts & witty saying of love...but alas. i can't deliver. sorry.
i did lay out cute V-day outfits for them this morning before i left, so that should score me some points. perhaps they'll still be in them when i get home- but more than likely a day full of painting & cookie making has bested my efforts.
as for plans? nada. we'll come home from work- do life- eat dinner & go to bed. but we will ingest an alarming amount of candy- because that's love.
what about you?
what are you doing for V-day? tradition? something spontaneous? do you detest V-day? love it? meh? etc etc?
