Husband and I don’t really get each her stuff for Valentines, or any holiday really. When you’ve been with someone for so long it’s like, what do you get them? Especially when they usually get what they want when they want it.
But I always make sure we exchange cards for Valentines.
This is the card I made for husband.
I saw a similar card at Target for $5 and was like…pssssh, I can make that.
And this is is what husband got me.
You better believe that made my day
That and talking to my dad on the phone.
I was driving to grab take-out sushi for Valentines day dinner (because we’re romantic like that) when my mom called me.
Your dad wants to tell you something
For a moment there was a bit of silence as my mom shuffled the phone to my dad, and then I heard a muffled voice.
It wasn’t distinct or well-articulated, it sounded as if he was trying to talk with a bunch of marshmallows in his mouth, but I got what he said.
Happy Valentines Day, Win
It left me a little choked up, and while I maintained a happy tone in response of his well wishes, I felt as if life had given me an unexpected emotional curve ball. A happy one at that. My dad, who had been a helpless vegetable two months prior, was wishing me a Happy Valentines.
So yea, those two things made my Valentines Day. I know it wasn’t exciting like a new bag or shoes or flowers, but the older I get, the more I appreciate the little, everyday things.
Things I like this week:
Jumanji – I know this movie has been out for a bit, but husband and I just saw it over the weekend and thought it was really entertaining and worth the amount we spent to see it in the theaters. Usually I’m not the type to re-watch movies or shows, but this is one of those fun movies that I’m willing to watching again.
Frontier Season 2 – I killed through Season 1, and then stopped watching because some other show came up, now I’m picking back up again. Really, I like any show that taps into History, but the only thing I don’t get about this show is the quotes from current pop culture figures like Beyonce’ and Ice-T that they flash in the beginning. If someone could enlighten me on what that does for the show to specifically quote people from today?
Things I don’t Like:
Jack Daniels Caramel Fudge – I got this for Valentines Day from Total Wine because I thought it would be good and me and husband could share, but it was disappointing. If there’s anything I know, it’s candy. Don’t get it.
Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston Split – It shouldn’t shock anyone when a Hollywood couple breaks up, but some couples you can’t help but root for. Justin and Jennifer were one of them. As well as Anna Faris and Chris Pratt. ::Sigh:: I don’t know who to root for anymore…
Anyways, I hope everyone has a great rest of your week. This week is rodeo week in the desert, which is kind of a big deal in the desert. I’ll let you know how that goes later because… I got tickets to the rodeo! I know, I’ve become such a townie. Also, it’s been cloudy and rainy for five days. I’m so over it. What else…husband started his first day of work yesterday and he said his work has a 2:00 tea time on Tuesdays. I was like, you mean like with biscuits and little sandwiches? I may just happen to stop by on Tuesdays to check it out.
Until next time….
