Well as I mentioned in yesterday's post, my dh is not the traditional, romantic gift-giving guy. He likes to do things his own way. So I got my Valentine's gifts yesterday! Yay! It was a surprise; I didn't know I was getting anything yesterday. I mean, it was still two more days until Valentine's Day. I guess he wanted to get it while he was thinking about it and not forget. :) Whatever the reason I was happy. He got me this:
Let me tell ya, that balloon is HUGE!
You know what's awesome about these roses? These roses will not die. They are made from wood! Can you believe that? That is so neat! Even in person they look so real.
A heart pillow with a super soft throw, a bottle of sparkling grape juice (that's not wine), 2-count them-2 different containers of Ghirardelli chocolate (Oh YEAH!), and a diet Dr. Pepper. (It would have been regular Dr. Pepper, but when I had a kidney stone they said cut back on the sugary drinks.) The bag of chocolate is dark chocolate, my absolute favorite chocolate. Have you ever been to Ghirardelli's in San Fransisco? Oh yummy-yum-yum! I had a sundae there with their famous chocolate on it. If you like it from the store...well it's to die for when it's fresh. Oh wow! If you can't get it locally they are having a sale right now online. Buy 4 bars, get a 5th free; see here.
I would have been perfectly happy with just one of these things; actually I still would have been perfectly happy with nothing. But all of them together? Wow! My favorite flowers - roses, my favorite dessert - chocolate, my favorite drink - Dr. Pepper. *sigh* I'm so blessed.
