V-Day and a B-Day

Valentine's Day:

This year's valentine's day was not to bad.  I was sick... not very fun.  I stayed home from work on the 14th and 15th, which is so not like me because I usually can stick it out but I just really didn't want to.  Thursdays are Chris' flex days at work and valentine's day happened to land on a Thursday.  Awesome!  He got off at 12:30p.m. and headed home.  I made sure to be showered, dressed and ready because Thursdays are also grocery shopping day too.  Before shopping Chris took me out to lunch to a surprise place. 

I have been wanting to try this place for months now and Chris thought this would be a nice surprise.  I knew this was probably one of the options and I was right.  It was so good and Chris even liked it.  He got the buffalo tofu and I got the black bean burger.  It's small inside but very cozy.  Basically you feel really cool and hipster like being in there. 

After lunch we went to the next surprise.  My valentine's day gift was to pick out whatever fruit tree I wanted at Tallahassee Nursery.  We didn't actually buy anything that day because we need to clean up the yard a lot and find the best spot but I picked an orange tree.  Chris thought it was be a fun thing to plant together at our new home and to take care of it together. 

We then finally went off and did our grocery shopping and just chilled the rest of the night.  It was a great day and I am so grateful for a loving and supportive husband.  Especially while I was sick and not feeling well.  He's the best caregiver.

OH I forgot to mention what I did for Chris.  Well starting on Monday, February 11th each day I gave him two (because there were eight) cheesy Harry Potter themed Valentine's with a reason why I loved him on the back.  Each day I also decorated his little cubical area.  The last two valentines didn't get to him until the Monday after since I was sick but everyone at his work thought it was cute.  We eat lunch together pretty much everyday.  Usually on Tuesdays and Wednesdays I'll walk down to his work to have lunch and on Mondays he comes to me.  Fridays it depends on when I decide to get into work.  So on the days I went to eat with him I brought the different decorations.

He seemed to be surprised.  He knew I was up to something when it took me awhile to come into the break room for lunch but it was worth it.  His office was very sad and empty looking.


For my birthday (which is just four days after Valentine's Day) we really didn't do much.  I was still getting over my cold and that following Friday we went to the Temple so I didn't want to have us go out to eat since we already were going to in Orlando.  I got a new camera for my birthday which I'm excited about... just have to learn how to use it better.  And Chris also got me this...

Let's just say I eat the whole thing by myself and it was gone before the evening was over.  He knows the way to my heart... not flowers but an edible arrangement.  He wanted it to be sent to my work but the place said they only had one driver and they were backed up so we picked it up after work.

I can't believe I'm 24... it makes me want to throw up just thinking about it.  I think back on my life and I can't understand where the time went.  I feel like it was just yesterday I was moving up to Tallahassee for school and now I'm an old married lady, graduated for college, and wearing cute collared pink shirts with cardigans.  I'm excited though for this year... last year was a bit of a roller coaster for Chris and I and I feel like we're finally settled down a little.  Who knows what this year will bring but I'm grateful and happy to know I will be spending it with someone I truly love and care about.
