Today when I came home from school, after a long day of teaching subject-verb agreement, I found a mysterious gift bag on the dining room table. The card read, Happy Valentine's Day, but I was unsure what to make of it. After all, it is a little early for my mom to be dropping off a V day gift! David proudly responded that his Valentine's Day shopping was complete and that he had found the perfect gift for me! Can you believe it? Does anyone else's husband shop ahead like this? He has always been a good shopper- his Christmas gifts for me are always a lot more sentimental and considerate than mine are- but, it is not even February, and there sits my gift. I guess I am going to have to stare at it for three weeks. Well, not willing to be outdone, I made a trip to visit my best friend, T.J., and did a little V day shopping of my own. I found David something he will love (he is my blog's biggest fan, so I can't share), and got a few things for myself. I love T. J. Maxx like an insomniac loves late night TV; where else can you find BCBG at discount prices?
A sweet handmade card I received this week from a bloggy friend, Jennifer!
Today, I received another sweet handmade card from a bloggy friend, Jamie.
I must admit, and those who frequent our house know, that I have a wee bit obsession with chandeliers. Either real, or ornamental, I am drawn to them like a vegan to tofu. I have six hanging, and this makes seven, which will soon (Please David!! Just do it!) be mounted in the guest bathroom. I have one in the dining room, foyer, laundry room, our bathroom, future baby's nursery, and in the entrance alcove to our bedroom. I think they are so fun!
