Happy Little Surprises

Since this was our first married Valentine's Day together -- J wanted to actually do something.  As I said yesterday, we normally don't celebrate this Hallmark holiday.  The Husband was determined to make our first Married Valentine's special for us.
All day yesterday J was texting me or calling me asking if I had received anything at work.  I hadn't every time he asked.  I thought he was just being a brat, setting me up for nothing. At 5 when it was FINALLY time to end the charade, he told me to sit at work. He had an Edible Arrangement sent to me at work =) It was really sweet and SO yummy! Since it was after 5 when I received them, I saved it to share with my honey.
When I got home, I was greeted with big hugs and kisses and beautiful roses. I know roses are so cliche on Valentine's Day, BUT it was really sweet because he isn't a flowers kind of guy =) I also had a box of chocolates and really REALLY sweet card from him.
As I am changing into comfy clothes, I smell a delicious aroma wafting into the house. I walked outside to the grill where J was grilling a huge bacon-wrapped filet, potato and bacon-wrapped shrimp.
yes we ate in the livingroom -- don't judge =)
After we ate too much food, we tackled the Edible Arrangement and watched J's favorite movies: The Sandlot and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.
It was such a sweet night and all of it was unexpected! I am so lucky to have a wonderful husband who wants to surprise me and make me happy =)
How was your Valentine's Day?

Ah! That looks nothing short of PERFECT! We don't celebrate Valentines Day either but I think it's such a sweet idea to go ahead and do a little something something for your first VDay as 'man and wife'

I LOVE edible arrangements. Mmmmm the last one I received had chocolate covered pineapples, green apples and strawberries. What a treat!!
