Valentines

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. :)

Well, you know my thoughts from reading my blog. Also, the meal was sweet and sour chicken... Ryan's mom has the very best recipe. If you ever want it, let me know. Also, I miss you guys!! I can't believe how big your girls have gotten in only a few months!

I got new sewing scissors, a cutting mat and a rotary cutter! I was so excited.

I LOVE getting flowers! I NEVER get them. I know they are expensive and they just die, but they smell so nice, and look pretty. But in our 6 years together, I have gotten flowers twice. Once before we were even married. (Sam isn't a romantic!)

We are the same way. With our anniversary being 2 weeks before Valentine's...we don't do much. We did go to a Mavs game :o) Miss you guys. Hugs.
