We're not huge Valentine people around here. We're cheap, usually attempting to avoid candy, and celebrate our anniversary two weeks later on February 28. (If anything, we buy cards and candy on the 15th when it's on sale!)

This year, though, we surprised Zac with dinner from Chipotle grill. He wasn't at his desk, so we left a note and headed home. About an hour later, I got a phone call: "You little punk! Now I have to step it up!" hehehe

So I got flowers when he got home and Abby got a single (silk) rose. You would have thought Zac brought her buckets of gold, she was so excited. "Mommy, I'm so happy that Daddy brought me a rose!" Sooooo stinkin' cute!!

So, in honor of Valentine's Day, what are your traditions? Are you a flower person or not? I, personally, love to get cut flowers. They look pretty for a few weeks, then they die. I don't have any green in my thumb - so at least with cut flowers I don't feel bad about them dying. :) And my favorites (and the ones that have lasted longest) are usually the Wal-Mart flowers. Who needs a $60+ flower arrangement? I just want some color in my kitchen. :)

So, come on.....exit your Google reader, come to the actual blog, and share your thoughts. :)

Chatter Bird

Hey, friends! I recently discovered Latter-day Chatter and I love this site! As the name implies, a lot of Jessica's stuff is geared toward the LDS church. BUT she also has lots of cute things in her store for holidays and other fun stuff. Downloads for super cute printables, Valentine cards, file folder games, visiting teaching handouts - fun stuff that you need to go check out! (Tell her I sent you!)
